This topic reminded me of a scene from an old Elvis movie, "Follow That Dream" (one of my favorites). In that movie some people were trying to kick Elvis's family off of their land so they could build a casino. It has been a while since I have seen it, so I may get some of the details wrong, but anyway they tried to prove Elvis's father to be mentally unstable. It ended up in court, where a psychologist made him take a word association test. He was to write his answers down. Right before the test Elvis whispered something to the judge. One of the words on the test was moon. After the test the psychologist looked over the results and started going on about how each answer showed him to be unstable. For "moon" the response was "shine." The psychologist got this look of triumph on her face and went on about how that answer showed that he was obviously a moonshiner. That is when the judge revealed that he had also taken the test (as suggested by Elvis) and those were the results the psychologist had. When he said "shine" he was thinking of the song "Shine on harvest moon."

Oh, my, Barbara! That's one of my favorite movies, too. Some of the Elvis movies were so "pure" and simple (not to mean simple-minded), but nice. Today's movies are so different!!
