Classic Movie Alert: The Court Jester

Email from Mama Rote today, to all her offspring and our significant others:


The Court Jester is on TCM Sunday evening at 8pm ET/5pmPT.

I think you should NOT MISS IT. But that’s just my opinion.


“The chalice from the palace has the brew that is true.”

If you’ve ever considered taking my old movie recommendations, now is the time. You’ll love this one. It’s full of hilarious scenes, memorable lines, and of course, Danny Kaye making faces like this:

(Fair warning to my husband: there’s singing and dancing. But also a great sword fight scene.)

You’ll do a double take when you see Angela Lansbury as a beautiful young princess, rather than Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote. And then there’s one of my all-time favorite villains, Basil Rathbone.

Enjoy! (And you’re welcome.) Have a great, swashbuckling weekend.
