    Cid's referring to a comment I made about Ann Sheridan's unbecoming hairdo in Woman on the Run. I get what you're saying, Cid, that maybe Ann had made a considered decision to disguise her attractiveness, being tired of the way she was always flaunted in Warner Brothers movies as a sexy young dame. However, that doesn't mean she had to give up entirely on her looks ! She could have continued to wear that oversize belted coat, which, as Eddie mentioned, she wears throughout the film, which completely covers her shapely figure. But there's a difference between not wanting to be sexualized on the screen, and choosing to look ten years older than you are. If it was Ann's own decision to go with that "Ethel Mertz" hairdo, I still think it was a mistake.

    S.V. Dáte‏Verified account @svdate S.V. Dáte Retweeted Donald J. Trump This is laughable. The White House and the administration are stonewalling congressional committees on any number of topics. The White House no longer holds press briefings. When there WERE press briefings, the press office showed no hesitation in disseminating falsehoods.

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account@realDonaldTrump No Collusion, No Obstruction - there has NEVER been a President who has been more transparent. Millions of pages of documents were given to the Mueller Angry Dems, plus I allowed everyone to testify, including W.H. counsel. I didn’t have to do this, but now they want more...Congress has no time to legislate, they only want to continue the Witch Hunt, which I have already won. They should start looking at The Criminals who are already very well known to all. This was a Rigged System - WE WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP! 9:52 AM - 24 Apr 2019

    The Devil Bat (1941) 5/10 Here is a film for really dedicated Lugosi fans. It cannot compare to his 1930s Universal classics but better than most of his Poverty Row films of the 1940s and 1950s. He plays a mad scientists who invents a shaving lotion that attracts his giant killer bat to attack his victims. Bela gets some good lines that only he can deliver. The only other interesting thing about this one is Dave O'Brien as the reporter hero of the film. Most TCM fans today will recognize him as the goofball character in the numerous Pete Smith Specialty short films shown frequently on the channel. Cult film fans will also remember him as one of the guffawing pot heads in "Reefer Madness". One thing that I find striking about him is the uncanny resemblance he has to the later 1960s and 1970s character actor James Olson.

The deal, announced in 2017 at a White House ceremony, was meant to create 13,000 jobs, and Wisconsin offered billions in incentives to get it done. Since then, the deal appears to have stalled out. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/04/23/foxconn-wisconsin-governor-tony-evers-renegotiating-letter.html?__source=twitter|main

    NOW PLAYING (100 YEARS AGO)

    From April 24-16, 1919, the feature at the Poli was Three Men and a Girl, starring Marguerite Clark (as Sylvia Weston) and Richard Barthelmess (as Christopher Kent). Released on March 16, 1919 at five reels, the film is presumed lost. Plot: Christopher Kent and Julius Vanneman have had bad experiences with women, so their friend Dr. Henry Forsyth, who has also sworn off women, joins the pair at a club where they hope to escape from the fair sex. However, the trio are constantly disturbed by female callers, so they rent a country home owned by a man named Weston. Weston’s daughter, Sylvia, is promised to a rich old man whom she despises. She runs out on her wedding ceremony and decides to hide out in her father’s country home. When she arrives, she finds food on the table, and after a hearty meal, wraps herself in her wedding gown and falls asleep on a couch. When the three men return to the home, they find Sylvia and are beside themselves. They cannot throw the girl out of the house, so they decide to let her stay the night. The next morning, Sylvia’s nurse arrives, and the two women move into a small building near the main house. The three men create a “dead line,” marked off with a rope, between the houses, with the understanding that no one is to encroach on the other’s property. But one by one, the men soften and spent more time at the dead line with Sylvia than avoiding her. Sylvia falls for Kent, whom she calls her “little bear,” while she refers to the other two men as “big and middle sized bears.” Although the men become jealous of each other, Sylvia and Kent end up happily together. As with many of Clark’s films, this one sounds cute. If the plot reminds you of the Goldilocks story, it’s probably because the film was based upon a stage play entitled “The Three Bears,” which premiered on Broadway in October of 1917. The National Juvenile Motion Picture League of New York apparently looked askance at films with “questionable” title cards. In this instance, they suggested cutting the lines “How the devil did I know it was a woman” and “Good Lord, just like a woman.” Exterior scenes were filmed at Loon Lake in the Adirondacks. The two other “bears” were played by Percy Marmont (the light-haired fellow in the stills) and Jerome Patrick (the dark-haired gentleman with the mustache). Both were born outside the United States, and both had appeared in the 1917 stage version of “The Three Bears.” Marmont, a native of Great Britain, lived into his 90s. Patrick, a New Zealander, suffered a loss when his father William died in New Zealand, a few months before the film opened. Then Jerome died in 1923, after making only a handful of films. Some newspapers claimed the cause of death was a “nervous disorder.” However, Variety reported that Patrick had died of heart disease at the Neurological Institute in New York.
