buy Hermie - a Common Caterpillar from Amazon.com So what’s so bad about being a common caterpillar? Just ask Hermie-or his friend, Wormie-and they’ll tell you. No splashy stripes. No stand-out spots. Not even a cool house like the snail or super-strength like the ant. Compared to the rest of God’s beautiful creation, they just feel ordinary. Unimportant. A little out of place. But God sees past their plainness, and plans an incredible surprise to show them just how special they are.Read More »Hermie: A Common Caterpillar

Walt Disney’s The Apple Dumpling Gang, starring Don Knotts, Tim Conway, Bill Bixby, Susan Clark – DVD review

Many people who were children during 1975 will remember Walt Disney’s The Apple Dumpling Gang with fondness. The basic plot involves three orphans, who become the responsibility of Russell Donovan (played by Bill Bixby), a bachelor and small-time con artist who wants nothing more than to be free of them. After spending time trying to foist the children upon someone else, it’s found out that they own the deed to a gold mine, formerly thought to be worthless, but that produced a sizable nugget of gold after an earthquake.

buy Dear God from Amazon.com I have to admit being pleasantly surprised by Dear God.  Originally I was only going to review it for completeness’ sake, as part of the Tim Conway reviews.  I picked it up at my local Wal-Mart for only $4.00. I figured that even a little bit of Tim Conway was worth $4.00. Even if the rest of the movie was a waste.  It wasn’t, for several reasons.

Editorial Review of McHale’s Navy, Season One (1962) starring Ernest Borgnine, Tim Conway, Joe Flynn—courtesy of Amazon.com

buy McHale's Navy season one from Amazon.com Something of a cross between M*A*S*H* (it’s set in wartime) and Sgt. Bilko (the emphasis in on ensemble acting, with a ringleader and his band of merry pranksters), McHale’s Navy isn’t on a level with those two immortal sit-coms. But this amiable show, debuting on DVD with all 36 black & white episodes from its first season (1962-63) on five discs, stands the test of time surprisingly well.

buy The Private Eyes (1980), co-starring Tim Conway and Don Knotts from Amazon.com Don Knotts and Tim Conway co-star in The Private Eyes. It’s a silly little comedy where they spoof the murder mystery in general, and Sherlock Holmes in particular.  Called from Scotland Yard, Inspector Winthrop (played by Don Knotts), and his bumbling assistant Dr. Tart (played with mindless abandon by Tim Conway) to solve the murder of Lord Morely.

Buy "The Longshot" from Amazon If you’re like me, you consider  Tim Conway  and  Harvey Korman  to be one of the classic comedy teams, and wish that they had worked together beside The Carol Burnett Show. Thankfully, they did!  The Longshot is an independent film  written by Tim Conway, co-starring Tim Conway,  Harvey Korman  (as well as Jack Weston, Ted Wass, and  Jonathan Winters).   The basic  plot is that a group of four life-long losers decide to take a chance for once in their lives, and place a large long-shot bet on a broken-down horse.   With borrowed money.   Borrowed from the mob.   Read More »The Longshot [Tim Conway, Harvey Korman]
