Forgotten Movies: COMFORT AND JOY




COMFORT AND JOY is a 1984 Scottish film starring Bill Patterson and directed by Bill Forsyth that concerns the misadventures of a radio DJ who loses his girlfriend and become involved in a feud between to rival ice cream vans. You have to be a lover of the small films, but I am one of those people.

Have a very Merry Christmas.

Same to you and Phil, Patti.

I saw COMFORT AND JOY after seeing Forsyth's delightful GREGORY'S GIRL. Later saw LOCAL HERO and his first, THAT SINKING FEELING. I'd forgotten that he directed the film version of Marilynne Robinson's HOUSEKEEPING.

Please do have as happy a (western) Xmas as possible! (The Orthodox and and the Primitive Baptists might be willing to note that Twelfth Night is the True Xmas.) And thanks for the early entry. Forsyth has been responsible for a charming body of work, all right.

My mind draws a blank on this one for sure.

Patti, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you and Phil and all your loved ones. And special thanks for delights of FFB.

Patti, Merry, Happy, Jolly and all the rest. May 2013 be a wonderful year for you, Phil and the family entire.

Charles, that "draws a blank" thing is my mind's frequent response to darn near anything, these days. Which reminds me I need to do my Christmas shopping...

Rick, the local news radio station had a guy at Macy's on 34 Street this morning interviewing last minute Christmas shoppers. One guy had apparently made the mistake of giving his wife her present (sounded like a coat) early. Now she was complaining she'd be the only one without a present under the tree so the poor guy was out there shopping on Christmas Eve.

Poor sap.

I made a quick trip out, hit a lull, got a gift card. Put the little envelope in a big box, just wrapped it.
