Tony,
My eighth grade class proved fountain pens to be as, or more destructive than ballpoints. Our Nun took away ballpoints because of the spitballs.  It wasn't long before she also removed fountains because of all the ink streaks people, including her, were getting on their nice uniforms!

Remember we also had little bottles of "ink eradicator" (small bottles of bleach) to remove those ink stains and make page corrections. Can you imagine sending a kid to school with little bottles of lethal chemicals now?

Mary, It's hard to believe we were born in the same year, lived in the same city and went to 2 different high schools together.  I never heard of  Babette's Feast or Lili, never saw Modern Times or My Bloody Valentine in 1,2 or 3D.

I had to go back and look up this thread because of something that happened this weekend.  I have a friend who is pretty much shut in right now, so I suggested we have a Netflix club.  One evening a week, I'd come over and bring a movie.  We'd watch it together and just spend a nice evening. Finally, she said I can't pick the movies anymore, because my taste is too strange!

Mary, I've had the same thing happen.  Many of the people I know want to see very "mainstream" films...and they MUST have happy endings.  Or, at the very least, unambiguous endings.

I just noticed this thread - and have to add:  The Sting,  The End (very funny black comedy with Burt Reynolds and the aforementioned late Dom D.), and The Dream Team (no, not a basketball story - a comedy about inmates in an insane asylum who are on an outing for a day - a great turn by Peter Boyle and what's-his-name from Taxi.)  They're all comedies - hate to watch movies that are upsetting.  We can get that from the news channels.

Kathy, I just saw the movie "The Class" which was up for Best Foreign Film last year.   It's about a middle school teacher working in a very challenging inner-city school in Paris. 

Being an educator, you might find it interesting to compare this slice of the French system to the American school system.  It's not a documentary but the actor playing the teacher is also a teacher in real life (as well as being an author, screenwriter and footballer).

The teacher and students challenge each other in many ways both positive and negative and it's riveting watching these personalities interact.

Thanks, Andrea, for the recommendation.  I will definitely pick it up the next time I'm looking for something to watch.

Kathy,

If you want to see a movie that has elements frighteningly close to the "boys' side" of life at MC, rent "Heaven Help Us" starring Donald Sutherland and many others.  It was made around 1985, but is set in 1965, almost exactly on target for "our" times.  About a Catholic prep school (I seem to remember thinking it was in NYC) and some pretty tough religious Brothers trying to get and keep the boys in line.  Costuming will fersure bring back memories.  Many aspects are way over the top (too-brutal discipline, ferinstance), but many others are spot-on!  Also mostly hysterically funny for those of us with "insider" knowledge of some of the religious stuff....

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089264/

PS -- How have you been?  haven't "seen" you around here, much... Joan & I and rest of famdamily are all doing well....

Hi, Clem!  Yes - I haven't posted in a while - just busy at school.  It's never dull when you work with teenagers!  I think I did see the movie you're referring to but I will definitely check it out.  Say "hi" to Joanie for me.
