More on the 3rd 101 Things in 1001 Days

The race to the finish continues.

Yesterday I watched:

A Haunting in Connecticut  a moderately intense horror film about a boy dying of cancer who, because he's living in the "valley of the shadow of death," can see and be impacted by the supernatural happenings in the house his family is renting. The house was once a mortuary where strange seances and rituals were performed.

The Conjuring, another haunted house story. This one's about a house in Harrisville, Rhode Island that's haunted by a long-dead witch who has designs on a mother of five.

Both of those were from the list of 13 horror movies inspired by real-life events.

Then from the 100 Years, 100 Cheers list, I watched The Spirit of St. Louis, about Charles Lindberg's transatlantic flight. It starred Jimmy Stewart, and seemed to last as long as the 38 hours of "Lucky Lindy's" flight. Boring.


  1. Loved your comment about The Spirit of St. Louis! Since Lindy has turned out to be such a dick, I resent him being played by Jimmy Stewart.

    1. Absolutely, Gal. And apparently, nobody wanted him to play Lindy at the time, either. He was 47 when he played Lindbergh and 25.
