I finally fixed my feed for Swanofdreamers!! I kept thinking I had solved it before. From now on, my posts should be coming in to Google Reader. So please update it in your links.
Now on to the good stuff. It's Tuesday and sunny here in The Bronx. In honor of the Oscars, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite fun movies. The kind of movie that is really silly and you just love it. A movie that would never even make it at the Oscars. Unlike some actors, I'm not ashamed to say some Oscar Winning movies leave me cold. They are wonderful movies; yet, I'm not going to put it on when I need a lift.
My #1 fun movie is The Pirate Movie(1982). When I was a teenager, they played The Pirate Movie so much on HBO. It seemed like HBO showed it every two days. I was hooked from the first. It's a modernized version of the opera: The Pirate of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. It's sweet,fun and filled with happy songs. I adore it!! Kristy McNichol, who was one my favorite actors as a kid, is so good as Mabel; Christopher Atkins is dreamy as her suitor, Frederic. And I can't forget my two favorite Pirates in the movie. The Pirate King played by the wonderful Ted Hamilton. Samuel played by Chuck McKinney is hilarious as the lone brotha in the pirate crew. Did I also say how I love the costumes!!
Christopher as the honorable and cute Frederic.
