At the beginning of my junior year of high school in Arkansas, our homeroom teacher had us fill out a form stating our future goals. Out of curiosity, I leaned over to see what my friend put down for her aspirations. Where it read “Vocational Plans” she had written, “Florida.”😐
Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???
“…Chief, you’re about as big as a […] mountain!” This is a famous movie quote which not only illustrates the movie but the book it came from, and yet highlights the difference between the book and movie. From which multi-award winning movie from the 70s did this defining line come?
ANSWER: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) is a movie based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Ken Kesey. Both book and movie were critically acclaimed with the movie one of only three movies in the twentieth century to have won the Academy Award Big Five (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Movie and Best Screenplay). Whilst the themes remain similar between book and movie, there are some important differences. In the book Chief Bromden is the narrator who watches the antics of Randle McMurphey’s battles against the orderliness and authority of Nurse Ratched, whereas in the movie, Chief Bromden is a secondary (but still important character), who is presumed to be mute and deaf. So when the Chief speaks two-thirds into the movie (“Hmmm, Juicy Fruit”) we the audience are taken by surprise.
In 1993, the United States Library of Congress deemed the movie “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant” and selected this important movie for preservation.

Friday’s Quizzer is……
I beam, I shine, I sparkle white
I’ll brighten the gloom with my light
I’ll mystify and enchant all
I’ll bring out the best in you all
Goofy, bucked, green or gold
Young and charming, wise and old
Sly, cunning, empty some times
Mirthful, uplifting, within the lines
A fleeting glimpse or prolonged show
I’m sometimes sad, sometimes mean
Sometimes I’ll say more than you know
Or betray what you think you’ve seen
Now, if you know me, tell me so
You have me too, you know!
