It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
I’m so glad it’s May! The weather has warmed and Fionn is getting more exercise. Now that the cold has mostly receded, along with April muddy paws, it’s time for a new production with new energy…
That energy got Fionn to decide on his next Shagbottom Theater project. Although June is the traditional month of marriage, his grandparents were married in May. Since he’s doing a year of Cary Grant, it was perfect to go with My Favorite Wife (1940). I’m not certain why this particular film. My parents have had a fantastic marriage. No one has gone missing and returned to claim us years later. But, there must be something about this special film that struck Fionn as perfectly May. Oh, yes! That’s right! It was released on May 17 of 1940. There’s a little movie trivia for ya!
Let’s check out the clip Fionn has prepared for us of his production…
Nick Arden: I beg your pardon, Judge Bryson—but, she is legally dead, Your Honor. You declared her legally dead yourself in this very courtroom. Your decision is on file. And, yet here she stands, seven years on with the same man she’d been disappeared with on an island. The same island. Alone.
