recommended family movies
« on: March 16, 2019, 10:41:00 PM »
I am looking for suggestions for older movies that are family friendly.  For example, some 1960's western that is clean and has a good message...We are watching moves 2 times a week with our 10, 13 and 18 and we need to get a list of ideas so on movie night we are not scrambling, or re watching Incredibles 2 for the 5th time  :)

Darby O'Gill and the Little People
Especially on St. Patrick's Day!

And while it's St. Patrick's Day, we can't forget:

The Cavalry Trilogy: Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, and Rio Grande.  All directed by Ford, all starting John Wayne.

Wonderful movies! You can't go wrong with John Wayne.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Gods and Generals.


Field of Lost Shoes

Yes, war violence. Dad and older boys would love these. Women's dignity is given place as well as the gut check of slavery's place in society. No nudity, language, innuendo, etc.
