It is a great 60s flick about a Catholic girls boarding school. Rosalind Russell plays the Mother Superior, and Hayley Mills is a trouble-making student.
Each of Haley Mills' escapades start with the pronouncement, "I have a scathingly brilliant idea!"
At one point in the movie, the Mother Superior stops by dance class (the dance teacher is played by Gypsy Rose Lee, which brings up a whole different conversation), and realizes that the girls are lacking certain undergarments.
Brassieres. (Not bras. It is 1966 after all.)
Mother Superior tasks a particularly nervous and timid nun to take the girls to a lingerie shop, so they can buy said brassieres.
Nearly in tears, she says, "But Reverend Mother, I don't know anything about...binders!"
And that is all I have to say about women and binders.
Do you have a favorite old or classic movie?
We have been talking about this today on facebook - discussing how old a movie should be to consider it old. And if the age of a movie has anything to do with it being a classic. I loved this definition from Denise, "A classic doesn't have to be old. It just needs to be timeless and enjoyable, or relevant for more than one generation."
