movie magic

I grew up in a very conservative Christian home without a television until my older brother gave us his cast off when I was about thirteen years old. Up until that point, my television and movie-watching experiences were limited to my grandparent's house which we visited almost every Sunday afternoon. They owned a RCA SelectaVision videodisc machine that I never saw anywhere else and apparently never really caught on. But we loved watching those movies in Pop and Grandma Shirley's living room. Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Swiss Family Robinson, The Great Locomotive Chase, The Billion Dollar Hobo and The Love Bug. So far I have acquired many of those titles and love to watch them over and over.
And because I love these old movies, I was so surprised and enlightened when I happened upon this blog post at Buried Treasure Books about Dean Jones, the racecar driver from The Love Bug. He's a conservative Christian who is still making movies. If you're interested you can read more about him here at the Wikipedia site.
