Important for Flannery & film fans

Top Five Reasons to See "The Displaced Person":

5 - John Houseman: surprisingly funny as a priest who adores peacocks, those symbols of resurrection, since salvation is central to this and all of O'Connor's work.

4 - Samuel L. Jackson: probably an embarrassing early role for him (his second according to IMDb), as a slow-minded farmhand routinely addressed by the dreaded "N" word.

3 - Bill Conti - scoring this TV movie fresh off his Rocky victory.

2 - Robert Earl Jones - father of James, playing a seriously "yessum" farmhand.

and the number one reason ...

1 - Andalusia - for lovers of Flannery's writing, this movie was shot on the working farm in Milledgeville, Georgia, where she spent most of her life, just twelve years after her death. The peacock probably wasn't one of hers, though (see http://www2.gcsu.edu/library/sc/collections/oconnor/focfaq.html). But who could tell the difference, anyway?
