  4. That women who was explaining about Emil Janning ,after Faust ,10/ 12/ 29, left many things out about him. The reason why he left Hollywood was because his accent was to thick for American talkies .He needed to make a living in acting at all cost. He went back back to Germany to continue his career. Unfortunately he did make films under the Nazi dictatorship. Many of these did films were no different than Hollywood films ,light entertainment dramas. After the war the American military took over Germany Jannings was black listed from doing any movies period. He did not want to do American movies. Any how settled down at his farm and he was dying of cancer. Since 2001 T.C.M. has been pseudo liberal against showing any more films ,except what they have repeated , Munchausen ,Olympia and Titanic, made during the Nazi dictatorship. Not even right after .They treat this genre like porn. It would be nice if T.C. M . were more open to bad history they would show Emile Jannings later films and the audience would learn more about him, inspire of what he did. Remember. T. C. M. has explored our own dark side. This hypocritical. . .

    Maybe you should get on the phone. Isn't Trump looking for a new foreign policy advisor?

    He stumbled on the Western Hemisphere, which would lead to one of the greatest demographic calamities in human history, with the decimation of native groups.

    THE YOUNG MR PITT (1942)
  17. We know the actual cause. The computer does not have the capability to download quickly on its own with a WiFi connection. This was determined by viewing the specs of the computer (so I was told). Or was it the result of the download speed tests? So it needs an adapter for a booster. There is no adapter now. There was no old adapter (unless you mean the whatever it is already in the router upon initial installation). It was using the wifi I have in the apartment without an adapter. That's my understanding anyway. If what I just said doesn't make sense then I am not understanding the explanation I got from the tech person. Anyway, the adapter (USB as explained to me) is the answer, but that means the desktop in no longer independent/portable and I'll have to run the cable all over the room to connect the router to the PC, boo on that. As I said above, I'll just use the laptop for the CC Channel because it is capable to begin with and does not need an adapter. I have the feeling I don't have complete command of the situation but at least I know what needs to be done, etc. I thought the resolution of my problem might have been instructive to others, but perhaps not. Thanks, OH, appreciate your input, as always.

    Your Favourite Foreign Language Films Up to 2015

    Don't feel bad...a lot of people were ticked off after watching it. It was very divisive, and I think I alluded to that when I made comments about it. I enjoyed it though, even if the twist renders some of the previously viewed events implausible, at best.
