WHAT'S MY LINE?
THE WHISTLER
THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)
     THIS PAGE IS AS MUCH FOR MAVEN'S USE AS  ANY, SINCE HER MIND HAS GONE RELIGIOUS. . . . TO PARAPHRASE ONE OF THE WEASLEY TWINS (of Harry Potter Fame):  IT'S GOTTEN SO "HOLEY" LIKE SWISS CHEESE THAT TOO MANY THOUGHTS HAVE STARTED PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK WITH MAVEN!
     ADMITTEDLY INCOMPLETE, THESE ARE BOOKS+ AND MOVIES THAT WOULD BE PERFECT - IN WHAT IS LEFT OF MAVEN'S MIND! - FOR CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR . . . AND GOOD FOR ALL AGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
