A Couple of Movies You Might Enjoy

Do you use Netflix?

I recently watched two movies on Netflix and really enjoyed them, they are both available on the streaming service.

First movie,Heavens Above, (1963) starring Peter Sellers.
A thought provoking comedy! Peter Sellers is cast as the Reverend Smallwood, a gentle soul who truly strives to live the gospel life and it causes all kinds of problems for him. This is an English movie, black and white, and although almost fifty years old the attitudes portrayed in the movie are still prevalent today. The only downside to the movie is the ending, it is a bit lame. Here is a link to the review:

Second movie, Driftwood, (1947) starring Natalie Wood.
Another comedy, rather sweet, some funny dialogue. Natalie Wood plays a young orphan girl who has been raised in virtual isolation by her Great Gran Pappy, (we never hear what happened to her parents, or grandparents), a preacher.  The little girl knows the bible inside and out, when Great Gran Pappy dies she has to leave to go to Sodom and Gomorrah, which in reality is civilization. The little girl learns how to relate to others, and they learn from her. It is a nice movie and I would highly recommend it for a rainy afternoon when you don't have anything else to do.
