David Niven left behind wealth of watchable films

Tastes change at Mango's
Mango's Cafe in Aiken is nothing if not adaptable. The restaurant, housed in a stately old home on Laurens Street, opened in 1995 with an emphasis on Caribbean and Jamaican food. But the owner/chef soon realized that his ethnic fare was less popular with locals than he had anticipated.

'God's Favorite' has fun with Job's tribulations
In the Bible, Job withstood death, disease and despair to prove his devotion to God. His trials take up 42 chapters.

David Niven left behind wealth of watchable films
David Niven, born on this day in 1910, was something of a one-trick pony. Certainly, he was never an actor in the running to play cowboys, space rangers or blue-collar toughs. But he could play David Niven, the gentrified Englishman with a roving eye and mischievous grin, better than anybody. Between 1934 and his death in 1983, Mr. Niven averaged two movies a year, each time spinning his dapper, and sometimes daffy, persona in interesting ways. So, in honor of what would have been Mr. Niven's 92nd birthday, here are some outstanding films featuring the unflappable star.
