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.

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – Easter weekend 4 or 5 years ago Thomas and Lillian wanted to watch something with rabbits.
On such short notice this is what I came up with and we’ve watched it every year since! A 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit counts right??? Plus, Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal in this.
Quotes from Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) …. “Every day is a perfect day.”
“I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and whoever I’m with.”
“In this world you must be oh so smart or oh so kind. For years I was smart. I recommend kind.”
Thomas says, “I like it a lot and I like watching it every year!”
Lillian skipped watching this year.

Team TLC movie night – Lillian’s choice: “Come Live With Me”
Lillian says, “Good, romantic, my favorite character is Johnny, awesome, emotional, and cool.”
I say, “Wonderful feel good movie. Just adore James Stewart. This was 80-year-old Adeline de Walt Reynolds acting debut as Stewart’s grandmother. She was awesome in this part! And then she acted for 19 more years! Great, great movie!!”
Thomas says, “It was good, liked it, and it was funny!”

Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice: “Pot O’Gold” – 2nd time around for this one.
Lillian says, “Good, musical, classic, funny, awesome, and 100% recommended.”
I say, “Just a fun lighthearted show. Love James Stewart in this one. Great comedy about fast improvising. Loved seeing it again as it’s been a couple of years.”
Thomas says, “I like it. A good classic. Like how they keep tricking each other, like the title a lot. Very good movie. My favorite character is Jimmy (James Stewart) and liked them all.”
