would not swap their hus­bands for any­thing but it would be nice if Santa de­liv­ered a box and when it was opened Elvis walked out. If Elvis and his movies: The public has great ac­cess to the mu­sic of Elvis and his movies to­day in 2018. He was a hand­some and tal­ented young man. There was much to be ad­mired about him. It is with an air of ir­ri­ta­tion I see cer­tain movies of­fered on TV. It isn’t so much all is wrong with those movies (I haven’t seen many of them) it is the fail­ure to show those movies with whole­some en­ter­tain­ment and sub­stance to the story lines. I men­tion three of them here.

Re­cently, I got to see the movie “Kid Gala­had.” It was did not have deep story line but it of­fered good clean en­ter­tain­ment and a happy story in­volv­ing peo­ple of a whole com­mu­nity. The end­ing was great. That movie and “Fol­low that Dream” about a man and his fam­ily home­steading ( squat­ting) on public land in Florida was more than en­ter­tain­ing. Then pos­si­bly the one with the great­est depth of thought was “Wild in the Coun­try” with Hope Lang and Tuesday Weld. One re­viewer stated, “Hope Lange and Tuesday Weld carry the film with their su­perb act­ing; one of the best movies star­ring the late Elvis Pres­ley -- A good movie with good act­ing.”

Sadly, Hope Lang passed away
