  1. Didn't dig it. It had some nice imagery but I was really looking forward to a more fetching young Joan Bennett. Good sound for the times. I wouldn't have guessed it was a 20s piece.

    I did see a post from mid October where he said his PC tower was making an odd noise and that if it crashed he may be off for a few days. Maybe it crashed and he decided he liked not being tied to the pc all the time.

    I'm reading through his posts now, hearing Bogart's voice as I enjoy his wit and insights. He would occasionally discuss his past and decribe his experiences as they related to whatever topic he was addressing. Like most here, I've always found him interesting, entertaining and informative. I PMd with him on occasion and was often tempted to ask more specific questions about his life and times, but didn't want to seem presumptuous. Until we know differently, I'm assuming he's met a lovely young senorita and now has far more constructive things to do with his time. Till we meet again, old friend!

    Johnny Carson is back on TV in 2016 !

    I'd forgotten his singing but I just read he guest hosted for Johnny 58 times, and was a relative of Adlai Stevenson.

    "The Night Walker" (1964)

    Good points, Liam, about the ages of the two leads. I suppose I could have worded my objection more carefully about Barbara and Robert looking past their prime and tired, respectively. Barbara's character was supposed to be thought of as a straying wife, at least in her husband's jealous eye. Of course she wasn't but I would have chosen a younger leading lady to give some credibility to the idea. As for Taylor, well, I guess I'm just not a big fan of his acting.

    According to wiki, production moved to Burbank in May 1972, and went to the 60 minute format in September 1980. I'm looking forward to the broadcasts. It will be interesting to see how well the humor has held up since the 70s.

    "The Night Walker" (1964)

    Didn't care much for the story which came off like a TZ episode badly in need of editing, but I liked the TV look of the production, low budget but clean and some nice black and white tones. I love Barbara but she was past her prime as a female lead. For that matter Taylor looked a little tired, himself. Vic Mizzy scores are always fun and sort of tongue in cheek but he seemed short on motifs here. Maybe because the script itself was limited. But I'm a sven fan and enjoyed seeing it in that venue.

    Orson Welles is 100 years old today

    Thank you for your thoughts, Speed. I remember his turn with Lucy! It was probably my introduction to him. He was an acquired taste for me. It took a few viewings of Kane before i got how good it really is. Sad his 100th wasn't well commemorated.
  12. Just saw this item on Twitter and thought I'd check the boards for thoughts on Orson. I didn't see a thread going, which surprised me, but I thought I'd share. I'm a great admirer of his work, especially Kane and Touch of Evil. I was surprised that F for Fake made the list, but not his Othello. He struggled for funding of his films in his later career, but Peter Bogdanovich quoted Orson as saying something like, oh how they will love me after I'm gone.

    "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" (1966)

    It was only a few years ago that I saw Joan's playboy photos, in which she is blonde! But I adored her even before i saw those. I noticed the censor after I posted, too, but decided I didn't give a **** about it.
  14. Reading all this makes me think of the people who choose to enforce the speed limit by driving 55 in the fast lane. And tattlers in school. Always spoiling fun. And in the name of fairness. Fred, I hope youre not guilt ridden at having robbed these filmmakers of what is very likely a substantial pittance.
