    We rescued this little guy about two and a half weeks ago. He showed up outside my fiancee's apartment on a cold day (with snow in the forecast). Once we realized he was not feral, we took him in. We searched several days for the owner, but no luck. So we took him to a clinic, had a chip put in, got him "fixed" and got his shots, and now he is ours. He is incredibly docile and friendly. We are guessing he is about a year old, or less. We named him Louie. And here is how he likes to relax:

    Been watching a lot of his movies from the early 40's up to the late 70's....not only was he a great actor, but man oh man, was he ever dreamy! Another great actor shamefully overlooked by the Academy. Especially loved his performance in OUT OF THE PAST, and he makes one heck of a villain in both THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and CAPE FEAR. And he was so cool as Philip Marlowe in FAREWELL MY LOVELY.

    Years ago I was sitting in a theatre watching "Apollo 13" and I kept thinking: "I know that kid, I know that kid." The "kid" I was referring to was the actress who was playing Tom Hanks' aka Jim Lovell's daughter, Barbara Lovell. I was so curious that I stayed through the credits to find out who she was and then I knew. Barbara Lovell was played by a young actress named Mary Kate Schellhardt and years before I had cast her in a TV commercial which just happened to be her very first acting gig. She was probably 6 or 7 at the time, gave an incredible performance and worked for hours and hours without complaint. Way to go, Mary Kate! Her father (who worked for Associated Press and was on set with Mary Kate when we shot the commercial) was a super smart, super nice guy who was eventually transferred from Pittsburgh to Chicago so we lost access to Mary Kate for a while. But, when it came time to choose a college, Mary Kate decided to return to Pittsburgh and attend Carnegie Mellon University so we had a chance to re-connect. She was a natural talent from the very first moment she auditioned for me and turned out to be a lovely young woman who has continued working in film and TV.

    I too disagree with you and so did two Native American elders on CNN New Day. Pochahontas is a cultural hero to them and every time Tump uses it he does so in a derogatory fashion. He therefore besmirches their heritage. Face it. He's a pig. A moron. An embarrassment. Akin to something I'd scrape off the sole of my shoe.

    Regardless of whether the places are good to live in or not, the comment was very rude and crass. The comment also comes across like Trump mocking their homelands. Previous presidents at least had the dignity to not denigrate other nations and peoples. Another thing is he should have known his comments would come across as racist when he said them and that it would upset people from there, not to mention if the US has to ever ally with an African country like they did just a few months back, to fight terrorists. Trump speaks down to his own citizens and alienates us from potential allies.

    Blake wasn't a bad actor when he was a kid. I particularly like him when he played John Garfield as a boy in Humoresque. He brought a sensitivity and even sweetness to the role. Years later, during his Baretta years, I recall his being interviewed on a talk show, and discussing Garfield. He said that he had a scene in the film in which he was supposed to cry and the director (Jean Negulesco) was becomingly increasingly impatient with him for not being able to perform it properly. Garfield arrived on the set at this time, sized up the situation, took the director aside for a minute then climbed up on the fire escape set, where the scene was set (most of it eventually cut from the film - in fact, I can't even recall a fire escape in the film) and sat next to young Blake. Said Blake, "He just talked to me for a while about my childhood, and he got me to go back into my past and talk, and pretty soon I was crying my eyes out. It was his way of teaching me that the Group Theatre's Method really worked. Then he climbed through the window behind me, told me not to worry about the crew, and coached me through the entire scene as Negulesco filmed it. It was the beginning of my education as an actor." Afterward, according to the Garfield biography He Ran All The Way, the little boy followed Garfield around the set like a puppy dog, something the actor did nothing to discourage. Robert Blake's public image has considerably hardened since then, I know, but whenever I think of him, I often think of this anecdote about a vulnerable child actor and the "tough guy" film star who could feel for that boy and took the time to help him get through a scene.

    My favorite all-time Mickey Mouse cartoon is on TCM's Treasures from the Disney Vault series tonight. And I've never even seen it! I should explain. When I was a kid, one of my favorite possessions was a GAF View Master (do they still make them?). Among the first 3-D reels I ever got were a tour of Disneyland and "Brave Little Tailor," in which sets out to catch a giant. I looked at the "Brave Little Tailor" reel so many times, it's always been the Mickey Mouse tale I've remembered most. But I've never seen the actual 1938 cartoon (I guess it really has been in the Disney Vault all these years). By the way, Henry Fonda used to do TV commercials for the GAF View Master. The 1971 spot below features a young Jodie Foster and another popular TV kid from the decade.

    Roberta (1935) - Musical rom-com from RKO and director William A. Seiter. Huck Haines (Fred Astaire) and his big band arrive in France only to learn that their promised gig has fallen through. Huck's best friend John Kent (Randolph Kent) decides to look up his aunt, a dressmaker named Roberta (Helen Westley) to see if she has any advice on work for the band. John ends up inheriting the dressmaking firm, and he falls for lead designer Stephanie (Irene Dunne), while Huck meets up with Lizzie Gatz (Ginger Rogers) a neighborhood gal pretending to be European aristocracy. Also featuring Claire Dodd, Victor Varconi, Luis Alberni, Torben Meyer, Bodil Rosing, and Lucille Ball. Musical + rom-com + France + haute couture = a formula for a movie that seems designed to not appeal to me to the ultimate degree. And yet I enjoyed it, after all. I was surprised to see Astaire and Rogers as supporting players again, with top-billed Dunne and Scott as the true leads. All four are charming and on top of their game. The costumes are elaborate, and the models are stunning, including a young blonde Lucille Ball. The songs are good, too, including the standard "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". The movie earned an Oscar nomination for Best Music, Original Song ("Lovely to Look At"). (7/10) Source: Warner DVD, part of the TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection: Astaire & Rogers, Volume Two.

    I thought she was great in "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and her role as a TV comedy writer on the show (in a time when 99% of woman's roles on TV were wives, mothers, teachers or nurses) was an inspiration to many a little girl. The whole cast was wonderful from the leads to even folks with smaller roles like Mille & Jerry Helper. Not to take anything away from Mary Tyler Moore but I always preferred the office scenes to the home scenes. Sally, Buddy, Rob, Mel and Alan Brady always cracked me up. Carl Reiner is/was a genius. The show still remains as funny today as it was all those years ago. RIP Rose Marie.

    "Manpower" (1941) What a fascinating mash-up of genres and stars. I watched it coz of Edward G., George Raft and Marlene Dietrich and I stayed with it because it had a little bit of everything: comedy, action, romance, tragedy and the greatest cast of character actors all in one film. There was the basic men-of-action working on power lines story but it was combined with a woman's story trying to reform herself after a year in prison and a rotten life working in clip joints (an "on-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks backstory). What impressed me was that so much was rolled up in this one little movie. Raft and Robinson were pals working dangerous jobs atop power lines. There were lots of scenes of "hot wires" and guys falling and dying; even Edward G. gets it in the end. There's a story line about Dietrich trying to reform her life by marrying good guy Robinson and a love triangle between the three principals. So much of the color and timbre of the movie came from a huge cast of very talented character actors: Alan Hale, Frank McHugh, Barton MacLane, Ward Bond, Eve Arden, Joyce Compton, Barbara Pepper, Dorothy Appleby and Walter Catlett with his funny little round black glasses who played the hospital roommate to both Robinson and Raft. The humor was wide-ranging and really funny: the wedding banquet when Dietrich weds Robinson was held in a Chinese restaurant while a band called "Wing-Ling and his 5 Hot Shots" sang in Chinese; at a diner near the Boulder Dam where the power crew was working the diner owner yelled out the most inventive menu items I've ever heard, including this little morsel when Robinson ordered a bottle of sherry wrapped up "real nice." The owner shouted: "Grapes of Wrath in a spud jacket." A scene on the morning after the wedding, Dietrich appears in a white apron, baking biscuits with a cigarette hanging out of the corner of her mouth. Finally, Robinson attempts to kill Raft when he thinks his pal has made a pass at his wife. High atop the power lines they fight it out, Robinson dies and the final shot is of Raft and Dietrich walking away in the sunrise together. This film, directed by Raoul Walsh, is a real little treasure and worth a watch. I had never heard of it before and I'm glad I just watched it.

    The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981) -- viewed on Cinemax I had always heard that this remake of the 1946 classic film noir did not add up to much, that it added graphic sex scenes, but was just a pale imitation of the original. Well, now, as of today's showing on Cinemax, I can say that this statement is unfounded in reality. True, the 1946 classic is still the better film with its taut pacing, moody black-and-white photography and career-best work from John Garfield and Lana Turner. But this 1981 version is a more than satisfying film. Indeed, while the much ballyhooed sex scenes just seem excessive, the ending leaves out the ironic twist that gave the story its title, and a scene with Anjelica Huston as a lion trainer seems out of place this is still a sturdy textbook example of a worthy early-80s film, treated badly at the time, that appears much stronger and finely wrought today, daring and fascinating in a time where too many new blockbusters seem pallid. Jack Nicholson turns in fine work as the drifter drawn into an affair first and murder later. As the femme fatale, Jessica Lange is even better and has remarkable control in what was only her fourth film. It remains some of her best work in her prestigious career. John Colicos also makes a strong impression as Lange's husband. the 1934 period detail is meticulously well-done and Sven Nykvist's luscious cinematography is ideal. And this story still has its punch. It is about time for this film to be reappraised.

    Once I would have said that is a gross generalization. Maybe it still is. But looking at the comments and conservative source only postings, the constant distractions, the refusal to acknowledge the fact that Trump is probably (I shouldn't even say "probably") a woman abuser, from the Trump supporters on these threads, there is a hell of a lot of credibility to what you say, Cid. Manson just died but these Trump followers here act like they're members of a cult, incapable of criticizing their "leader" or seeing the harm that he is doing to the nation. There will always be rationalizations or, in many cases, just mere silence from them in regard to his daily outrages. Yeh, I know, some call it political tribalism, but that's been going on for some time. With many here it's an obsession with the leader himself. I have no doubt that these followers would stand by and be supportive of significant civil liberties being curtailed by Trump (just so long as it doesn't seriously impact them, of course). Is there one of them here that trusts the mainstream media? Trump would be pleased with the answer. They listen for "the truth" from their exalted leader's mouth.
