For some reason, that old television show with Sebastian Cabot came into my mind. I had to look it up to even see what it was called, which was “Family Affair”, and starred Brian Keith also. I didn’t watch it very often; but I do remember occasionally looking at it and thought that Cabot did a great job as Mr. French, the very proper (butler ?) who ended up practically raising those little kids.
Here is a trailer from the first show.
Both of those kids on Family Affair (the actors who played them) had some significant problems later in life. The girl died of an overdose at about eighteen or so, and the boy had some big drug problems, but was able to get help with it.
Yes, I watched that show...one of my favorites ate the time. Also heard about the overdose.
Well he sure wasn't a fire and hell brimstone Preacher for sure. Actually what I like about the show is that it shows the Minister as a human being first and foremost. And his family are normal people too who make their share of mistakes and learn from them just like we all do. God isn't forced on anyone in this show but for the most part you can tell He is a natural part of this Family's life by the love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, etc. shown to each other and everyone else. Yet they argue, fight, get angry, etc. like all of us humans do and I think that's important to show too.
I'm really glad this show is back on right now...as it is some good wholesomeness in a World I feel needs more of that so badly.
