The Flying Padre
Mike sent along this "don't make 'em like they used to" RKO newsreel, directed by a young Stanley Kubrick. In it, we follow Fr. Fred Stadtmuller as he travels around his 400-square-mile New Mexico parish. The POD-ness and overall '50's cornyness make it a worthwhile watch. Also, "The Spirit of St. Joseph" is just a great name for a plane.
Speaking of Mike, he's looking for a good parish in the USC area. So, once you stop laughing at the previous sentence, if you could leave any suggestions in the combox or drop him an email, I'm sure they would be appreciated.
