Grumpy old fart!!!

"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Cradle Song


Dorothea Wieck (3rd January 1908 in Davos, – 19th February 1986 in Berlin ) and was a German theater and film actress.  Her English-film debut was as Sister Joanna, in Martinez Sierra’s “Canción de cuna” (Cradle Song) 1933. It is a story of a group of nuns who bring up a baby girl left on the doorstep of their convent. They name her Teresa, and the final scene takes place about twenty years later, as Teresa is leaving the convent to get married, and the nun who brought her up, Sister Joanna of the Cross, is reluctant to let her go rather than have her stay and become a nun.
