Television Humor

We love the 1956 Danny Kaye movie, The Court Jester. We watched it again recently and  I think the kids laughed more at the silliness than the first time they watched.

Last night, Allan and I were watching the Murder in the Electric Cathedral episode of Murder She Wrote.  In it Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury, who was the very spoiled princess in The Court Jester) met up with an elderly widow.  After watching the show for awhile, I told Allan that the widow was Griselda from the movie. When Jessica commented that it had been “thirty years since they have seen each other”, we just had to check the dates.

This episode was taped thirty years after the Court Jester 🙂
