    SansFin, great Halloween recipes! Thanks so much. lavender, it is very traumatic to hear of bad times with our TCM friends here. Real life unfortunately keeps intruding....

    SansFin, those pasta mummies are just adorable, lol. Thank you for posting, and that cartoon too! Lavender, it is very sad to hear about Joe. I didn't know he had such health problems.

    RO! So glad you had a wonderful celebration, my friend! I could live on their breadsticks, lol. I'm doing okay! Getting ready for THE MUMMY'S SHROUD. I love me a mummy. Although I do not wish to meet one personally. Blessings!

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    Awww, thanks, we're fine, SansFin! We've been together for almost 20 years. Longer than some human relationships, lol. And he's still lookin' good -- a fine broth of a bear!

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    Scott, aww...and coincidentally I happen to have a jar of Smucker's peach preserves in the fridge, lol. Hello, SansFin! How are you doing? Darn, I didn't know about National Teddy Bear Day. I have a beloved ranger bear who looks like Smokey's little brother. When you press the tummy he says "Are you ready for adventure?" Hi, Chris! I just finished watching RED RIVER. John Ireland (I dub him cinema's most effective actor in portraying cynical characters) as Cherry Valance is one of my all-time favorite performances. ("I haven't any such notion....") I'd like to think he survived at the finale. Could Joanne Dru be any more annoying? Among Hawks' signature feisty and sexually aggressive women, in my opinion she's the least appealing. And all the, er "coffee" talk, lol. Never has a cup of caffeine been so suggestive....

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    Scott mon cher ami! I saw BLACULA and SBS decades ago and felt the need to revisit them. William Marshall is one of the screen's great vampires in my opinion. I enjoy the voodoo aspects in the sequel; however, the two overall are highly watchable. Unique and worthy additions to the Dracula mythology.

    The Annual FrankGrimes Torture Thread

    Oh, Scott, don't you know how unforgettable you are? (cue Johnny Mathis song!) I thank you. Am getting ready to watch BLACULA and SCREAM BLACULA SCREAM. Just a typical Sunday chez Bronxie. Hello, lafitte, my sweet pirate! Hope you're doing well!

    Re: LURED, so Lucy and George see each other -- what? -- only about three or four times and then get engaged? That's a swift courtship, lol. It seemed like the script didn't quite know what to do with Sanders' character, though. "Unmitigated cad" or "lovestruck (anti)-hero?" I'm a big fan of this actor but for some reason his role didn't really jell with me.

    Thank you, molo! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY TCM FRIENDS! (I'm still having some trouble uploading photos and such -- must the the same gremlins that pestered William Shatner on that TZ airplane....) Speaking of which, I've been popping in and out of the Twilight Zone marathon on the SyFy Channel. I recorded the two Bergman films that were shown on TCM Imports -- WINTER LIGHT and THE SILENCE but think I'll save my viewing for next week. Why depress myself on New Year's Day, lol.
