Friday Movie Posting

GR&DF it is the end of another week and a glorious two day break from reality is here - and do I need it!! The rains have stopped until this evening so it will be a dry day - and I can get out to lunch at a new Hot Dog place - they left a menu on the front door of my work and what they are calling the "Southern Dog" sounds like a winner - the description of this culinary wonder is.... a "what's up dog topped w/ chili and fresh cole slaw" now how can you beat that!! I brought a cream soda and some Cheetos - a delicious lunch for the last day of the week!!

Last night TCM showed two great flickers - "Kitty" -1945 - starring Paulette Goddard and Ray Milland. This great little movie has Paulette playing an 18th century Eliza Doolittle type roll. From the gutters of Houndsditch to becoming a Duchess we see her change and marry a couple of different men for the man she loves. I really liked this film and thought she was at the top of her acting game.

Paulette Goddard - 1910- 1980

IIt is a splashy big costum drama and t is a shame that it wasn't shot in colour - and you rarely hear me saying that!! The second film of the evening was a favorite I have seen many times - " The Adventures of Robin Hood" - 1938 - starring Errol Flynn and Olivia de Haviland. This colour spectacle is long on adventure and action and a little short on actual historical fact. It is still a great film and worth seeing.

I worked a little on Memorial Sampler but found a mistake and so I will have to frog it all out tonight so no snapperoo of that tiny mess!!!!

Short and sweet today my dears - have a great weekend and I will see you on the flip flop!!

Take care,


  1. What a bummer that you have the frog to deal with on the Memorial Sampler! :( As for Robin Hood -- ah yes, a classic! I love that movie! I should really start watching TCM more often! My son usually monopolizes the TV when it's on and he likes AMC with all the violent movies. lol!

  2. Sorry about the frog business... Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Edgar, I got behind in my blog reading so let me take the opportunity to tell you how beautiful your Alphablocks is! It looks fabo and I can't believe how fast you finished it up! Have a bite of dog for this Southern girl. Paulette looks like quite the dish in that pose!

  4. Have a wonderful weekend Edgar.

  5. Oh, no with the mistake!! Must the whole thing come out??

    Now you've got me wanting a dog with 'slaw!! There's a great place just off the Highway called Rutt's Hutt--maybe I'll drag Marc there this weekend. As it is we are supposed to go to dinner in the city with friends, but I think the snow will make that fall through.

  6. I was thinking of you today Edgar while setting up an event here at the live performing arts centre where I work...CARRY ON SERGEANT! Part of the Kingston Canadian Film Fest! What a bummer about having to take your stitching out :-(

  7. How have to frog it!!! But, I hope like you said it is only a "little" mess!! Have a great one!

  8. Sorry I did not get to stop by till just now. Congratulations on your beautiful finish of the Alphabet Sampler. What a great job.
    Look forward to your Memorial Sampler.

  9. Good Day Edgar, I have been very lax in my blog reading due to life just getting in the way. I love to read about the movies you watch - my daughter is a big movie buff and I am going to send her over to read your blog.

    Your Alphabet Sampler is just lovely, what an accomplishment.

    Love the shelves you found and how you are displaying your many needlework treasures.

    Have a great weekend.

  10. Sounds like a great weekend! I always love your movie picks... some I've seen and some I've never even heard of - I'm going to have to put Kitty on my 'to watch' list.... Hmmm... I wonder if it's on my TCM On Demand channel?
