'Mary of Nazareth' about a month ago. Low budget film, but good. Typically depicted Christ as a Norwegian instead of the Palestinian Jew that he was.

Saw 'American Hustle' Sunday & enjoyed it.

The boys go to the Local French Foreign Legion Post for safety,but their troubles start when they find SGT Axmann(Walter Slezak)in charge and he tricks them into signing up with the legion.Axmann is a villin and a turncoat on The Shieks payroll. A French Agent pretty Nicole Dupre(Patricia Medina)promises to get the boys out of the Legion and ,find Abdulla if they they can help get the evil Axmann.

Very funny scene when the boys are lost in the desert and find an oasis.The Shieks men are there before them and one of the men loses his false teeth in the water.A catfish gets the false teeth in its mouth and Lou and the catfish have the fight of the century. en.wikipedia.org

Brian, That sounds like my former wife(? was she?) that was from Red China. I met her in Grad School and she told me that she wanted to become Catholic and have a large family and....I didn't work for the FBI like Matt, but do have a caseworker at Sen. McCain's office (He was well trained in the matter with Joe Kernan at the Hanoi Hilton). It sounds like and excellent movie that couldn't be appreciated by the unschooled American. Eve is out there though shhh

I took my 15 yr. old daughter to see 'The Book Thief' which she loved and it helped with her German class. Also, after Christmas, my 90 yr. old mother had us watch 'Gone With the Wind' for a fun-type history lesson followed by the 'Manchurian Candidate' with Frank Sinatra. Mom was a former U.S. Navy nurse during WW-II and worked in the receiving area at NYC and Bethesda Naval Hospital where she handled some of the worst cases that came in from the Europaeon Theatre. Many of these classic movies are excellent 'quick-study history lessons' for an honor student who never gets the true facts of the public school agenda. We received 'East of Eden' which an old family friend, who is a Lutheran social worker, who also uses classic films in her cases with teenage-divorce victims. rosary theheart
