The Blender Manual which uses the monkey on a Bezier curve does not seem relevant. For my modeling, the objects would be a stick that bends as if it were a segment of an arch over a door or window. perhaps only 45deg, but as much as 180 deg. arch. and other tutorials that make things move like a snake in 3 directions are confusing for my level of experience. I just want to bend a stick on a very well defines regular arch of a specific radius.
