N Is For Natty

I remember going to see, in the actual movie theater no less!, the movie The Journey of Natty Gann.  I was in love.  I loved Natty, with her flat cap and boys clothes and her rough and tumble ways.  It was the first movie I saw John Cusack and as previously posted here, I love him.

 

I had the movie poster on my wall and I dreamed of Harry calling me 'Kid'.....so when I saw the movie on VHS years ago, I bought it.  I've watched it, I've shared it with my sisters, but apparently I've never shared it with my kids.

 

Last Saturday was a quiet day and since I was ironing, I asked the kids if they'd watch a movie with me and they said yes, so I popped my old favorite in and I told them to get ready for a heart warming movie.....

 

Which, of course, they did not find all that heart warming!  They said the wolf was super scary, Natty was only about 12 years old to Harry's 20, and the whole depression thing was sad.

 

Huh.  I still love it!

 

Although, it did seem like the kids are right about one part.  The wolf was a bit of a stalker.  And by his example you learn that  if you stalk a girl, give her dead rabbits, and growl menacingly, you will win the girls heart!
