Perhaps, this is a bit more straightforward version of the above.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
with Peter Sellers & Shirley MacLaine
This movie is worth seeing and if you have seen it before, see it again. I have no idea how many times I have watched it and always found it both entertaining as well as a learning experience.
Hailed as a genius for his simplistic approach to life, an aging gardener with a childlike naïveté rises, by accident, into the game of politics. The man is soon presented as a possible Presidential candidate although no one knows his true background. (Source: Rotten Tomatoes)

ART OF THE WEEK
I thought this is worth repeating, since there is still time for those of you in S.E. Michigan to see this play. And if you live elsewhere, I still urge you to see a live play.
I think you are missing out on an experience, if you don’t see live theater every so often.
Regarding this particular play, I thought it had just the right touch of comedy and sentiment, and the two sisters in the play were absolutely charming. If you do happen to live in southeastern Michigan, I hope you catch this play.

In this comedy with a heart, Mom has been dead for 11 months and shows up at her husband’s birthday party as a ghost with a mission. Like Clarence in “It’s A Wonderful Life,” she has to accomplish a task to earn her wings. Only what the task actually is, is a mystery. There are so many things to fix. The problem is complicated by the fact that the only person who can hear or see Mom is her daughter who has been ordered by the court to spend Dad’s birthday with him as part of her Anger Management Program. One by one the family’s secrets are peeled away revealing a shocking truth that surprises even our ghost.
Sherlock Holmes in a 1904 illustration by Sidney Paget.
Known as a “consulting detective” in the stories, Holmes is known for a skill with observation, forensic science, and logical reasoning that borders on the fantastic, which he employs when investigating cases for a variety of clients, including Scotland Yard.
The Guinness World Records lists him as the “most portrayed movie character” in history. (Source: Wikipedia)
If you would like to know more about Sherlock Holmes, this book covers the territory, but I would not call it an easy read.
