    Noir Alley

    No discussion about the film itself? I'd seen the movie for the first time about a year ago (unsure if it was on Noir Alley or not). Overall a superior B with great dialog. But the movie's big hole: You'd think the police would've known what the mobster looked like and not have been fooled......

    2020 Election

    Your post above this one answers mine re: Warren's positions turning off majority of voters. I stated that those positions (from Warren or any Dem) will turn off majority of voters in NOVEMBER in the general election. The independents, conservative Dems, moderate GOPers, etc. This is what happened in 2010 and to some degree in 2012 and 2014 except for Obama.
  5. They ARE nuts! And big time spongers who sponged off of Bette their entire lives (until she wrote the book!).

    Why do some classic movie fans bash newer films?

    Hmm Lemme guess. He's still DOD. Do I get a cookie?
  7. Yeah, her book was much ado about mostly nothing. She and her hubby sponged off of Bette their whole lives (that was not in the book). Then BD acts all put out and petty putting up with Bette basically acting like Bette. Then she writes the book when Bette is deathly ill knowing how it would hit her. Now she's some wacko minister. Glad she and her spawn were cut out of Bette's will.
  8. He was busted to buck private and is peeling potatoes and cleaning latrines.

    Welcome Back, Dude

    Rather unlikely that db would get such a reception from this source. Unless we can either see facetiousness or total irony (or both).

    Why do some classic movie fans bash newer films?

    By now quite a few people are accustomed to just talking into their smart phones to do certain things like compose text messages, get street directions, or ask about anything in general. It is a convenience, and every convenience comes at a cost. Nothing provided by any corporation is for free, and unlimited data storage and forensics is really cheap these days. "Please, do tell me more about yourself so I can better assist you, friend." People within that group are also likely to just "repost" each other's gak on sites like Twitter and Facebook, not unlike someone who has never heard of literary synthesis before. The extent of the content of most activity is basically just different variants of ">>This!!<<", "Look at me!!", or "Lulz!". Those systems are designed to encourage lower-order primal thinking at that. That is potentially from the same group of people who are likely to order a ride. Not entirely, and I do realize I am painting with a wide brush here, but after all you are talking to people who ordered a ride through a cell phone app. At the very least I am genuinely glad for you and it warms my heart that you are able to personally benefit in some tangible way, as well as some intangible ways, from this form of vapid consumerism which has fostered so much dependency. Everything here exists in varying degrees though, and there is probably some truth to what you are hearing. There are also many who you aren't hearing from, and therein lies what is probably the biggest challenge of all to TCM's Marketing dept. I don't think the longevity of movie theaters has much to do with this, other than the occasional special TCM-affiliated productions introduced by Ben M., or the historically significant theaters which we should keep running for historic value and for classic film festivals. I do miss the drive-ins though.

    I Just Watched...

    Il Posto (1961) - 8/10 Italian drama about a young man (Sandro Panseri) who ventures out into the working world of Milan. He applies for a job at a huge corporation, for which he takes a battery of tests. He meets and falls for a young woman (Loredana Detto) who has also applied. However, it doesn't take long for the young man to realize the dull, banal life that he has locked himself into. Director Ermanno Olmi uses some Neo-Realist touches to add verisimilitude to the drab, gray world that the young man faces. Authentic, appealing performances from the two leads help cement the shambling narrative, and keep things from becoming too dreary. In fact, there's a distinct vein of black comedy running throughout. Recommended. Source: TCM

    The real issue here is, what does the fifty-foot woman have to do with Kate Smith? I mean, did Kate ever sing "I'm Just Wild About Harry?"
