Extra movie night for me – “Mister 880”
Suggested by a friend a few years ago. Finally made it to it! Thanks for suggesting it, Bob!
Absolutely my kind of movie. Sweet, heartwarming, with heaps of kindness. Burt Lancaster, Edmund Gwenn, and Dorothy McGuire were great!

She has a night to herself and has a hot date with a Cary Grant movie, buttered popcorn, and a nice warm bed ….. while the snow is floating down outside …. Yum!

Team TLC extra movie night. “Harvey” – A yearly tradition around Easter for the past 5 or 6 years. A little late this year as I forgot to reserve it at the library.
Why a tradition at Easter? Well. One of the main characters is a 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit! Ha!
I say, “I adore this movie. Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal!! My favorite quote from the movie is by Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart) … “I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and with whom ever I’m with. My mom used to say to me, ‘In this World you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.”
Another favorite quote by Veta (played by Hull) … “I don’t want my brother to be normal. I don’t like those people.” You’ll have to watch it to get this one.
Thomas says, “It was good, as usual. I like the music. Especially the music for the scenes with Harvey.”
Lillian didn’t want to watch this year so we watched it while she’s at The Romano Duo’s place.
