In 1931, a movie was made. And in 2017, I began to watch it. I’d seen Bette Davis in an episode of ‘What’s My Line?’ Then found a number of her films up on YouTube. 

The movie’s name was ‘The Bad Sister’. It’s only just over an hour long. But the interesting thing is that this version came with French subtitles. I could get in some language activity as a bonus.

Quite quickly, with the extra emphasis I’m putting on French lately, it’s—or I’m—responding. It doesn’t take much to ‘activate’ a language.

As the French would say, “Action!”
