Movie of the Week

After just now waking up to see the last bits of The Sound of Music on television, I noticed a couple of things:

1. The woman who takes third place in the singing competition -- the one that keeps bowing and bowing like an idiot -- was actually way ahead of her time. She wore her hair in the classic Princess Leia Cinnabon style. Help me Rodgers and're my only hope.

2. A bit earlier in the same scene after Max announces that the family Von Trapp will not be singing together for a long time because The Captain is going to "join" the Nazi Navy, there is some general crowd noise signifying surprise and dismay. The microphone appeared to be very near Mr. Scenery Chewer, who, I swore, says, "The NAZIS??? Watermelon watermelon watermelon watermelon watermelon." Corky St. Clair? Table for one.

3. To this day I don't understand how or why they chose to have Maria walk down the aisle to the song, "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" If I were her, I would have yelled, "Solve this, suckas! I'm getting Christopher Plummer!"

Oops. Almost time for the nuns to become automotive heroes. So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye!

Me, I'm watching White Christmas and having coffee. There is only so much time in the season to get all these movies in.
