Makes Me Wonder #1: The Yearling

The Yearling is a Hollywood classic and an adaptation of one of my favorite novels by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. It is the story of a 19th century pioneer family and their struggles to survive in the undeveloped Florida scrub.

I remember being so excited when the movie was finally released on DVD several years ago, and then the confusion I felt when I saw the cover graphics.

It makes me wonder . . . .

What genius at Warner Brothers designed the cover?

Has the graphic artist actually seen the movie?

And finally . . . .

When did God move the Grand Tetons to Florida?

I don’t know about you, but my summer vacation plans are set, now that the Rockies are so close to my home in the Sunshine State.
