Class Trip to Paris
I only went on one class trip while I was in high school in Shanksville, Pennsylvania in the late 1960's. Our Spanish teacher took us on a marathon one day bus trip to Washington, D.C. where we did a quick tour of some historic highlights. We left the night before and arrived in Washington the next morning. I remember climbing the steps of the Washington Monument to the top and back down again, and the main reason for our trip, a visit to a South American Embassy where we enjoyed a Spanish snack and tour and a short talk on the country that the Embassy represented. Then back onto the bus and the marathon journey back to Shanksville. While memorable, it was nothing like the trip that British comedian Will Hay took with his class of boys in this amazing adventure. Americans had Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and other fine comedians, but none compare to the unique style and personality of Will Hay. This good natured bumbling Brit fumbles his way through adventure after adventure, always innocently stumbling into a crisis that is bigger than life, and always stumbling his way to conquering the adversaries and coming out on top. He is the embodiment of the sentiment that the angels watch over young children and fools. in this adventure he manages to earn a trip to Paris with his class and manages to get involved with a band of thieves who steal the Mona Lisa painting from the famous Louvre Museum. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and enjoy a fast romp through Paris with Will Hay and his motley class of mischievous miscreants.
