This month I watched my first Elvis movie (actually four)! I also finally finished watching The Golden Girls as well as the final three seasons of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Read The Purple Diaries by Joseph Egan. If you have a library card you can read it free on Hoopla. The day I finished it TCM aired Dodsworth, which was perfect timing.

Least Favorite Film: I skipped through Show of Shows. Uranium Boom is definitely under my least favorite Dennis Morgan movies. It’s on YouTube.
Favorite Movie: I really liked several movies this month, but the one I wanted to watch again the next day was Blue Hawaii. I LOVE early 60s Hawaiian movies (Donovan’s Reef is a big favorite in our house). Others I really enjoyed were Dodsworth, the 1937 Kid Galahad, They Made Me a Criminal, Assignment in Brittany, Saratoga Trunk, Pitfall, and Diplomatic Courier. King Kong was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I guess I expected it to be more campy.
