Harvey (1950) directed by Henry Kosner stars James Stewart as Elwood a man who is convinced that he has a six foot tall rabbit named Harvey as his best friend. As his family and friends think Elwood is crazy about his imaginary friend they are some signs to prove that his bunny friend is in fact real.
Harvey is one of my favorite movies due to the fact Elwood still believe that the impossible is in fact possible in a grown up world. Regardless of what people think of him as long as he is enjoying his life he doesn’t care what else anyone thinks.
Yes everyone views Elwood as a crackpot and his sister thinks that he is an embarrassment to the family but Elwood is content living his eccentric life which makes this movie really relate able to me. One of my favorite quotes from this movie is ” I always have a wonderful time, wherever I am, whomever I’m with.” After watching this movie I feel like we need to be a little more like Elwood and not let the world get to us.
I was a huge fan of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books in middle school. Here are some of my favorite book covers.
This week I decided to go with a woman selection for this post.
Carrie White you are the woman of the moment!
Carrie white went through a lot in her life. Taunted at school and misunderstood by her crazy overzealous mother. Carrie is an outcast and loner but with a magical gift.
The power of telekinesis!
She ends up using this power at her high school prom and…. well I don’t want to give up what happens but it is memorable!
Today’s movie of the day is Bon, Voyage, Charlie Brown (and don’t Come Back!) directed by Bill Melendez and Phil Roman
This is my favorite Charlie Brown movie that doesn’t have a holiday attached to it. I remember watching this one numerous times after school.
Charlie Brown and gang travel to France as exchange students all due to a spooky letter Charlie Brown received from a girl who lives there. When they finally arrived to there destination in France they are welcome by mysterious and trouble!
After watching this movie so many times it made me want to go to France!
My pick for movie of the day is Wild Oats (2016) directed by Andy Tennant starring Jessica Lange and Shirley MacLaine. When Eva (played by Shirley MacLaine) receives her late husband insurance policy check she thought it was for $50,000 instead the insurance company made an error and put an extra 0 to that number!
