Life This Week: November 7, 1938




This week's "Movie of the Week" is The Citadel, starring Robert Donat as a young doctor who must decide what's important in life. Not to be all preachy or political, but this film outlines a few reasons why universal healthcare just might be a good idea. Keep an eye out for a young Rex Harrison.

How awesome is it that there's a cake named after a dance in a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movie?

  2. Hi Lauren, I am such a fan of Robert Donat. Haven't seen this in so many years I'd forgotten all about it. Speaking of Donat, I too posted about one of his movies today. Great minds strike - once again! :)

  4. I love reading the description of the cake and about what "discriminating housewives" should tell their grocer!
