Q: We are fans of “Mike and Molly,” and we noticed on the wall of Carl’s grandmother’s house are two framed gold records. Was she a singer in a previous entertainment career?
A: We don’t exactly know. It has been established that Grandma, played by Cleo King, can sing. But the writers and producers on the CBS comedy have not yet established exactly what her background is.
Q: The other day I was reading a story on the Internet about a dog that wouldn’t leave the church where his master’s funeral had taken place and it reminded me of a movie I saw many years ago, “Greyfriars Bobby.”
I think it was a true story that took place in England in the last century? Anyway, was wondering if it was available on DVD. It was such a heartwarming story.
A: “Greyfriars Bobby” was a 1961 Disney movie starring Donald Crisp, inspired by the true story of a 19th-century dog in Edinburgh, Scotland, who kept watch over his master’s grave for many years.
It is available on DVD and via Instant Video on Amazon.com. A 2007 film, “The Adventures of Greyfriars Bobby,” is also on DVD.
