Hey, that's an interesting idea, John! We haven't done that yet. I had another idea, too: movies which feature an orphan.
I was thinking that from now until January 1, maybe we could do Christmas movies, with a stipulation that we normally don't apply: they have to be made before 1965. Classics, in other words.
What do you think?
Then we could move to the other categories.
Good idea, Rosie!
A fast flowing easy game should get us through the festive season.
Sorry I've been really busy too. On hols for a bit now so will try and get here more frequently.
Both ideas sound really good to me.
New category in honor of the holidays: Christmas movies made before 1965.
1. The Bishop's Wife - David Niven, Cary Grant, and Loretta Young. I'm watching this right now. Gladys Cooper, as usual, plays an unpleasant, domineering person. David Niven is an Episcopalian bishop trying to raise funds (primarily from rich widow Cooper) for a new cathedral. Loretta Young is his much-neglected wife, and Cary Grant is the angel sent in answer to Niven's prayer. There are some sweet moments in this movie, such as the ice skating scene in which taxi driver James Gleason joins them on the rink. Elsa Lanchester is the devoted housekeeper. The angel's compassionate influence brings a sense of proper perspective to all, including tough case Cooper, but he narrowly escapes before crossing certain lines with the bishop's beautiful wife.
I love this movie!
Its so great, isn't it!
I think a Christmas round is a wonderful idea! 3. White Christmas from 1954 is one of the greatest Christmas classics. It was an Irving Berlin musical formed around the title song, which won an Academy Award when Bing Crosby sang it in Holiday Inn of 1942. This beautiful Christmas movie features Bing, as well as Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen. It's a Christmas movie which no one should miss! "May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white."
