Comments on: Considering the Lilies of the Field http://journeytothesea.com/jesus-lilies/ an online magazine devoted to the study of myth Mon, 01 Oct 2012 20:00:05 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.8.4 hourly 1 By: Laura Gibbs http://journeytothesea.com/jesus-lilies/comment-page-1/#comment-882 Laura Gibbs Thu, 21 May 2009 22:19:30 +0000 http://journeytothesea.com/?p=2906#comment-882 <p>Jason, Lionel Barrymore is one of my film heroes! As his arthritis got worse and worse (and he also suffered broken hip), he still kept on acting - on crutches (which they wrote into the script of You Can't Take It With You - it was not part of the Broadway play), and then later in the wheelchair. There are two AMAZING films of his I can recommend - Captains Courageous (a beautiful film for which I think Spencer Tracy may have won an Academy Award), and also On Borrowed Time. On Borrowed Time is a film worthy of Journey to the Sea - a mythological encounter with Death himself, who climbs up in Lionel Barrymore's apple tree and doesn't come down! It's a gem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On<em>Borrowed</em>Time</p> Jason, Lionel Barrymore is one of my film heroes!

My father-in-law had recommended it to us I don't know how many times, and we finally saw it sometime last year. It was so wonderful, too, to see Lionel Barrymore playing a part so different from his more notorious turn in <i>It's a Wonderful Life</i>, eight years later.</p> Laura, what a wonderful movie that is!

Here is how Grandpa explains it to Mr. Poppins - and when in the next scene Mr. Poppins joins Grandpa in the elevator he says, "I'm a lily!"</p> <p>Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: How would you like to come over to our house and work on your gadgets? Poppins: Your house? Well I don't know, thank you. Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Oh go on, you'll love it. Everybody at over at our place does just what he wants to do. Poppins: Really? Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: Mmm-hmmmm. Poppins: That must be wonderful. But how would I live? Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: The same way we do. Poppins: The same way? Well who takes care of you? Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff: The same One that takes care of the lilies of the field, Mr. Poppins, except that we toil a little, spin a little, have a barrel of fun. If you want to, come on over and become a lily too.</p> Hey Randy, we’re watching You Can’t Take It With You tonight (one of my very very very favorite movies) – and I had forgotten about this great “lilies of the field” reference in there; Grandpa Martin Vanderhoff is trying to lure a man named Poppins away from his tedious accounting job so that he can come live in the big old house where Grandpa and all his family and friends just do whatever they want – for the sheer joy of it.
