Gentle Readers and Dear Friends hitting 400 followers just makes the whole day for me!!!! I do thank each one of you and send out a big collective hug to everyone!!! For it to happen on St Patrick's day - how lucky and wonderful!!
Remember today is the last day to sign up for the St Patrick's Drawing - you can click HERE and leave a comment - but do so before3:00pm PST as I am closing it out and having the drawing this evening. I need a little time to clean up the entries, clip them into slips, fold them and mix them up in the Bowl of Destiny.
For tonight's flick I have waiting "The Quiet Man" - 1952 - starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara - the quintessential film for today - set in Ireland - an American born Irishman returns to his family's home in Ireland and falls in love with local colleen. I think this is a really good film and beautifully shot on location in County Mayo Ireland. Maureen O'Hara never looked lovelier!!! Supporting cast includes Barry Fitzgerald, Ward Bond and Mildred Natwick. You can't go wrong with this John Ford directed film!
Last night the flicker was a film from Netflix - "The Jane Austin Book Club" - 2007 - starring Maria Bello, Emily Blunt, Kathy Baker, Amy Brenneman and Jimmy Smits. I found this film doing a search for Emily Blunt Films. Being so young she has quite a few really wonderful performances to her credit. You can click HERE to read her full Bio on IMBD. I think what just kills me is that she was born after I graduated from High School - boy am I getting old!!!! All that aside she is a very talented actress and you should check out some of her other films. Getting back to "TJABC" it was a nice ensemble film that used the structure of reading Austins books and how they reflected the Book Groups contemporary stories. I liked the film - and at 106 mins the time just flew by.
There you go sports fans - thanks again for stopping by - I will post the winners of the Belleek Gift-a-way tomorrow at some point.... it may be in the evening, so check back to see who won!!!
