Team TLC Movie Night: My Choice – “The Great Rupert” aka “A Christmas Wish” …. The Great Rupert is a 1950 black & white with Jimmy Durante … Colorized in 2003 and renamed to A Christmas Wish
I say, “A squirrel as a guardian angel that answers prayers! Yep! Heartwarming Christmas miracle!!
I usually prefer black & white movies over the colorized version. However, this black and white is poor quality with many scratches and skips (unless you get your hand on the digitally remastered black & white).
I’d recommend the colorized version with the new name of “A Christmas Wish”.
Lillian says, “Good, like the colorized version better, the beginning is funny, it mentions Christmas, and my favorite character is Rosalinda.
November 17 2018:
Team TLC Movie Night: Lillian’s choice – “The Sound of Music” – A tradition every November/December.
Lillian says, “Good, favorite character is Maria and Liesl, musical, favorite song is the opening song of The Hills are Alive With the Sound of Music, and suspenseful if you haven’t seen it yet.”
I say, “Inspiring!! The Hills Are Alive and the opening scene gives me good yummy feel good goose bumps. Nature is indeed alive!”
November 10 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Thomas’ choice: “It Happened on Fifth Avenue” – This has become a November/December tradition for us. We’ve been watching it for many Holiday seasons now.
Thomas says, “I liked it a lot. More than usual.”
Lillian says, “Good for Christmas, my favorite character is Trudy, my favorite scene is when they’re all singing around the tree, and I liked the music.”
I say, “A philosophizing hobo who brings the Christmas spirit to anyone he befriends. Heartwarming story. Just love watching it.”
November 3 2018:
Team TLC Movie Night – My choice: “The Private Eyes”
I say, “Just a ridiculous movie starring Tim Conway and Don Knotts. Silly, bumbling goofballs.”
Thomas says, “It could have been better. It wasn’t exactly riveting.”
Lillian says, “Suspenseful and good for Halloween.”
October 27 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice – “ Song of the Sea” … We’ve seen this in years past; yet, Lillian wanted to watch it again.
Lillian says, “Good, fairly good for Halloween, musical, favorite character is the mother, good moral, and suspenseful.”
I say, “Beautiful tale of saving the spirit world and saving the world of magic.”
October 20 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Thomas’ choice – “Canterville Ghost” …. We’ve watched this every October for many years now. I thought we’d skip this year; yet, Thomas wanted to watch it again.
Thomas says, “I like it and it’s good.”
I say, “Just a great feel good movie. Love watching it with Thomas and Lillian!”
Lillian says, “Good, few similarities to the newer version, liked some of the music, liked the mansion, great for Halloween, and pretty good moral.”
October 18 2018:
Team TLC extra movie night: “Halloweentown”
Lillian says, “Good, great Halloween movie, my favorite character is Marnie, it should be watched during the day, and really like the music.”
I say, “Such a feel good movie. ‘All you have to do is believe!’”
October 13 2018:
Team TLC movie night: My choice – “Murder on the Orient Express”

Thomas says, “It was disappointing.”
Lillian says, “Good, dramatic, and suspenseful.”
October 6 2018:
Team TLC movie night – Lillian’s choice: “The Canterville Ghost”
Lillian says, “Good, suspenseful, awesome moral, liked the music, great for Halloween, and my favorite character is Virginia.”
I say, “Beautiful story. Although, I’m partial to the older black and white version of this. Yet, this newer version was truer to the original Oscar Wilde story. And, I’m a huge Patrick Stewart fan.”
