It looks like TCM will be showing some silent films in the following days! Tonight a Lillian Gish movie will be on, so if you're interested, be sure to check it out; some Charlie Chaplin movies will be on, a 1917 film with Buster Keaton and "Fatty" Arbuckle is being shown, lots of neat sounding movies are scheduled! Thank you TCM!

 

Yes, some good stuff in the days ahead. 


"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.
