To kick off the Thanksgiving week festivities, I decided to list a few movie related items I am thankful for.
I am thankful for Carmen Miranda.
I know what you are thinking, Pam, really? Carmen Miranda? Yep. She is sassy, had great jewelry and could dance her butt off in 5 inch high platform shoes. Plus, she was hysterical! When Carmen was on Broadway, she insisted that her back up band be Brazilian, to keep her music authentic. In movies such as A Weekend in Havana, Something for the Boys and The Gangs All Here, she showcased her singing, acting and comedic abilities as well as supporting the US Troops by asking theater patrons to buy war bonds.
I am thankful for the new Muppet Movie
Whoa! Where did that one come from? Yes, I am thankful for a new Muppet movie. I just can't wait to see the gang back together and reconnect with my childhood heroes, Kermit and Ms. Piggy. I'm not 100% sure what this movie is about, but who cares! It's the MUPPETS!
Last, I'm thankful for Sam Elliott.
I really do not need to elaborate here, do I people? Sam Elliott, c'mon....
Yep, just a few things I'm thankful for. I'm sure I could think of a million more , but I have to check on my turkey. The pups have began circling it.
