A Movie Worth Watching (Again)

Christmas brought fun and excitement to our house. The present pile wasn't quite as large as usual, but with ten people living in my house, it was still impressive. My share was mostly DVD's. One I still haven't opened. I'm saving it for a quiet afternoon. I haven't seen the movie in years and I want to spend time savoring and enjoying it without a lot of child interruptions. Saturday afternoon is the quietest at my home.

So what movie am I saving? Not a campy sci-fi classic, not this time. I already watched the Ray Harryhausen Sinbad collection, Disney's Snow White, and Camelot. I'm anticipating a wonderful time with Finian's Rainbow. It's a musical, can be classified as fantasy, very silly at times, but overall, it's hopeful and happy, even when things are horribly wrong.

Finian's Rainbow is about a small town, Irish immigrants, and the leprechaun they inadvertently bring with them. Some of my all-time favorite songs are from that movie. If you haven't ever seen it, it's worth tracking down and watching. After all, who wouldn't want a song for your heart, and a smile for your lips? Follow the rainbow, and follow the fellow who follows a dream.
