"Please, sir, may I have some more?"

“Please, sir, may I have some more?”

It’s that time of year again! Just a note in the spirit of the holiday season to mention my favorite Thanksgiving Eve movie.

Every Wednesday before Thanksgiving I make a point out of watching the musical Oliver!

I know the musical sentimentalizes  several characters that Dickens portrayed in a sinister way in the book (especially Fagan and The Artful Dodger) but the finished product has always seemed very holidayish to me.

Since Christmas has plenty of films that go with it I decided to make Oliver! the official Thanksgiving Eve flick in my eccentric little world.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    I watched Oliver many years ago and remember a sweet and lovely song – the boys and Nancy dancing and singing, “I’d do anything for you.”

    What a great idea! I’m going to add Oliver! to my family’s own Thanksgiving Wednesday customs!

    The ending of this is too sad.

    My brother played the Artful Dodger in our High School’s production of this musical.
