Good Medicine = Good Movie


Since I’m home sick Walt bought me the DVD of “Father Goose” after I saw an advertisement for it at Fred Meyer in the Sunday Oregonian. If you grew up in the 60’s you may be familiar with it.
I remember seeing this in the theater with my friend Paula and her family. I loved it then and still enjoy it today. It’s right up there with “Parent Trap” and other comedies from that era. It’s one of those movies you can watch over and over and not tire of it.
The stars of this romantic comedy are Cary Grant and Leslie Caron and won a 1964 Academy Award for Best Story and Screenplay. During World War II South Sea beachcomber Walter Eckland is persuaded to spy on planes passing over his island. He gets more than he bargained for as schoolteacher Catherine Frenau arrives on the run from the Japanese with her pupils – all female -- in tow!

The next “oldie” I want to add to my collection is “Snowball Express” … a great Disney movie for all ages. Silly but fun!

I hope you are feeling better! Even though it sounds good to lay around it is hard remain idle. Thanks for the movie recommendation, I hate going to rent one and don't know what to get. Colin was great today. I am working on him eating out of a bowl and not just on the tray!! Melney
