TAP ROOTS on YouTube. I love this film. It's never aired on TCM. Susan Hayward is very good in it.

Someone uploaded MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS on YouTube. I hadn't seen this excellent B film in a long time. I'd forgotten how great it is.

Flashback to the suburbs of the past day...Fun With Dick and Jane​ (not the crappy remake) and ​How to Beat the High Co$t of Living...​terrific streams.  If you have a firestick, do yourself a big favor and side-load Terrarium --you can spend days just wading through all the films and tv shows...sort of KODI without the work.

I've become hooked on an Irish soap opera called Red Rock. There are 80 episodes on Amazon Prime. It's sort of what I call soap noir. The main action takes place around the garda (Irish police precinct) and we see the personal lives of the officers. But there is a good balance between soap suds and police procedural drama. Highly recommended.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

I'm re-watching this film, since it's been about 15 years or so since I first watched it. My dad's side of the family is Jewish, so it's interesting also to see a story of an old-world Jewish family (so to speak). I love the score to the Broadway show, so I'm prepared to sing along while watching lol. 

 

Is the watching of Fiddler on the Roof a family "Tradition"?

What did you get? And what post-Disney depression? Wren't you working at Disney World for awhile, or something?


Not to interject and act like I know all about NickandNora's life and she can correct me if I'm wrong...

But I believe those Walt Disney World positions are typically internships for college aged kids (my friend and her sister did the same program. In fact, my friend's sister's internship led to an actual permanent position and she works there). So I would suspect that NickandNora's internship has ended.

Went to the public library to check out some good old movies in an attempt to work through my post-Disney depression. (I'm half-joking).

I just finished watching "All That Jazz." Now I'm watching "Humoresque." I didn't realize how hunky John Garfield is!

Emmerdale. I found out that one of my favourite actresses is leaving the show. So I've been enjoying every episode she's in. It was announced she departs later in the year, and I'm going to miss her and this storyline. I've never seen an actress play vengeance in such a "loving" way. She's very dynamic to watch.

Right now I'm watching a movie I borrowed--Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid with William Powell and Ann Blyth.  I really like Blyth, so I was excited to see this film.

 

It seems like such an unusual film (especially for William Powell), which is another reason I was intrigued by it.
