Last night was movie night. The girls came over and we had a great feast. I made corned beef, T made brussels sprouts (love those), M/D made pulled pork, and for dessert we had Inside Out Carrot Cake cookies. A good feast.
The movie we watched were Casablanca and Going my Way. We talked through Casablanca, this is the fourth time that I have tried to watch this movie and I just don’t get the hype about it. Nothing about the movie holds my interest, not even Ingrid Bergman, and she was pretty. When I asked T what she thought about Casablanca she said the same thing. Nothing held her interest.
The second movie Going My Way stared Bing Crosby and Berry Fitzgerald. I loved Fitzgerald as Father Fitzgibbon. Fitzgerald’s role as an old highly traditional priest is a great counter point to Crosby’s younger hip Father O’Malley. This movie also has one of my favorite songs “Swinging on a Star“. It was not until this morning that I read the Wiki link on the movie that I found out that Going My Way is part of two movies. The sequel The Bells of St. Mary’s is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Next month we are going to watch The Lost Weekend and The Best Years of Our Lives. I can’t wait I have always wanted to see The Lost Weekend.
