My college friend NBS tagged me for a movie meme. He notes that growing up he had abusive parents that wouldn't let them have such things as color TVs and cable. My parents also were of a similar abusive bent and living in a small town, we couldn't even pick anything up with rabbit ears. However, we were allowed to check out movies and I watched a lot of old movies with particular emphasis on Cary Grant, Alfred Hitchcock and musicals.
I have several favorites, but I particularly like Gigi and Auntie Mame. No particularly good reason, but I do like them a lot.
Favorite movie with a religious theme:
I'm sure I could think of something I like better given time, but I'm rather fond of Ben Hur -- more so than Heston's Old Testament epic.
Favorite movie priest: There aren't any truly memorable films about priest that come to mind, although I think David Niven was pretty good in The Bishop's Wife and the priest in The Quiet Man is endearing.
Favorite movie nun: Peggy Wood as Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music, of course.
As for tagging people -- how about Mrs. Ootfp and Blair?
