    speaking of 1943, THE HARD WAY is a rare film for me in that I really didn't care for it on seeing it for the first time (although the acting has always impressed me), but with each subsequent viewing I like it more and more. GLADYS GEORGE and JACK CARSON gave two of the absolute best supporting performances that year in that film. I love to dance, I love romance, but most of all I love to siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!!!!!

    Handsome men who did not become movie stars

    I've been watching Will & Grace reruns, and I love Eric McCormack, especially when he dances. It's a pity he never showed off his killer moves in movies.

    I Just Watched...

    I love 1943 and I love this movie, I also love Billy Wilder and this is one of my five favorite films of his. I recommend it everytime it is on, and I'm thrilled someone finally took my recommendation. it's a (far more fun and engrossing) companion piece to the same year's painfully lethargic FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, also featuring AKIM TAMIROFF, human inspiration for BORIS BADANOFF and POSSIBLY my favorite part of CAIRO. Agree about Tone tho, but everything else about the picture is so A+, I let it slide.

Remember, I was gonna get no black votes. Well, I got a lot."

    Matthew Gertz‏Verified account @MattGertz A lot happened in that interview, but for my money the most important thing was Trump saying that "our Justice Department -- which I try and stay away from, but at some point I won't -- our Justice Department should be looking at corruption at the top of the FBI."

    Movie with lady and dog

    Not to be a nit-picker, but if the movie was in black and white, how do you know that the dog was brown? Anyway, one of the most talented dogs in movies was the dog that played Toto in "The Wizard Of Oz". It was a female Cairn Terrier named Terry, and she was brown. IMDB lists her as being in twenty-one movies, starting in 1934 with Shirley Temple and Ida Lupino, and ending in 1945 with Gloria Jean. Here is the listing of her movies. Maybe one of the titles will stand out in in your mind.

    About DownGoesFrazier, aka "finance"

    One of my favourite posters on these boards remains to be Lori, who we lost in 2012. A devoted fan of John Garfield, she was a sensitive writer who started a campaign to try to get Warners Home Video to release a Garfield DVD box set through a write-in poll. She was also in contact with Garfield's daughter, Julie, as part of that campaign, as well. Lori was also a kind, generous soul, surprisingly me once by sending me a beautiful e-magazine, which had a large section in it devoted to The Breaking Point, a film I had championed on these boards before TCM had first shown it. It became one of her favourite Garfield films after she saw it. It was a genuine shock when we suddenly lost her, as related to us by ginnyfan. I still miss Lori, but a part of her is still with us inasmuch as her touching tribute to her film favourite is still posted on You Tube.

    About DownGoesFrazier, aka "finance"

    If it helps you feel any better MissW, this is just a thought, finance did post towards the end that his intention was when he reached 50,000 posts he was planning on leaving the bds. He posted that after he had reached the 50,000 mark. I don't know the thread he posted that in, maybe there is a way to access his posts and look for that post. I do miss him and wish that he would return to the bds. and I also wish if he left intentionally he would have written that he was leaving. Those of us who have known him for a long time have thought of him frequently. I did notice in trivia that he was posting less and less in the last months before he left. Trivia is where he first showed up. he joined the bds., about a year after I did, I think. He questioned me a lot when he first joined the bds. about one of his favorite films, Marty. He shared a bit of his personal info with me thru pm's over the years. I hope that he's OK and I hope that at some point he returns to the bds. If you're out there and reading the bds Finance (DGF), we all miss you.

    About DownGoesFrazier, aka "finance"

    Yes, there are a few others that are gone now. Whether just gone from these boards or gone from this existence I can't be sure. There WAS one member, a retired nurse if I recall correctly, and a HUGE John Garfield fan that died about a half year after I joined these forums. But we had heard about her passing, so it's not the same as DGF. And too, I wonder what happened to a member known as MADIGAN2, but as I also recall, she was believed to be in her 80's, so I try not to think of what HER possibility might be. But I too do miss DGF and kidding him about his "spinning" obsession, And can best hope his stationary bike didn't slip off it's stand and "spin" him into heavy traffic (and sorry DGF, wherever you are....couldn't resist ) Sepiatone

    Would you ever say a movie is stupid?

    Sure. I mostly agree. I don't think even 50 or 60 years into the future, people will look at the Belushi/Aykroyd collaboration NEIGHBORS and call IT a "classic", unless they mean to say "classic misfire". But then again, that last statement does fall under the "One's trash/Another's treasure" category. I might mention(yet, AGAIN) the guy I know who always felt the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE was the BEST movie he ever saw, and was ever made! One of my daughters had a boyfriend who felt that about HELLRAISER. So I guess we can( if you want) paraphrase FORREST GUMP'S mother and say---- "Stupid is as stupid sees." ;) Sepiatone

A former miltary surgeon (Ernst Wilhelm Borchert) and a concentration camp survivor (Hildegard Knef) try to take up their lives together and try to overcome their war trauma.
