    Johnny Got His Gun

    I haven't read the book, so, I can't compare the two. Watched the film many years ago and found it to be one that I will never forget.

    What Were They Thinking?

    What were they thinking thread? What was Fred MacMurray?s character thinking in Double Indemnity and Loretta Youngs? character thinking in The Stranger? Oh, that?s right, MacMurray?s character couldn?t stop thinking about the bracelet on Barbara Stanwycks? ankle. Now I see where kinky obsessions can get ya. As for Young?s character, she must?ve had the songs ?Stand by Your Man? and ?Oh, My Man, I Love Him So? running through her head while thinking, ?I just know I can change him.? Meanwhile, Edward G. Robinson?s character is running around trying to ?get his woman and man,? as the case would be, in both the films! My, he must have been tired! Good Heavens! What Great Films! :0

    James Garner Birthday

    LOL "Message was edited by CineMaven because I'm restraining from freaking out over the blasphemous Rock Hudson statement Popcorn and Dots made." *blasphemous* oh no how many HAIL MARY'S do i have to say?!?!?! :0 LOL ...and Easter is sooo close- I almost made it!
  7. I saw this film for the first time in the movie theater. I was small and moved from my mother's lap to my father's lap during the film. My father read the scrolls to me. Tell's you how young I was when I saw it. I can remember that the whole theater was crowded and it seemed so grand to me. I don't remember my thoughts, at that time, on Scarlet, but I've heard other people say they don't like Scarlet, but I have liked her ever since I rewatched the film during my high school days. Anyway, someone mentioned that the book didn't speak all truth. Although I was thinking of reading it, given this infomration, I guess I'll pass.

    After watching The Children's Hour today, the trailer for The Good, the Bad and the Ugly come on TCM - all I could do was laugh and think of the U. O. of G. B.'s version of the theme song! J.V.- I found them on youtube- I was looking up the theme music for Wuthering Heights came upon Kate Bush's old song and noticed the U. O.of G.B. and decided to listen and thought they would be great to share with the TCM crowd and other friends- Here's a cute one with William H.Macy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_o7SmPfzo0

    Sorry, I didn't make past the "sheet across my chest" line. This is about as dark as I can go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENbBPWjYtPM For the *western movie fans* in the crowd, here's (IMHO) the perfect voice to sing the theme songs: For the lovers of *great male voices* with bundles of talent: and.. just because I adore her: (Children Will Listen sung by Bernadette Peters)

    general chat spot

    I have a question that I am hoping someone can answer- The China Syndrome was shown during Jack Lemmon month, right, right, we TCMers all know this and probably watched the film- So...to the question...Jane Fonda's character meets/runs into (whatever) Jack Lemmon's character in a bar. While they are conversing a young woman walks up to Jane Fonda's character and asks for her autograph. O.K. here's my question: Is the young woman who walks up to Jane's character Caroline Aaron, who played Nina Cassotto Maffia (Bobby Darin's sister/mother) in Beyond the Sea ? Side thought- Ann-Margret is still beautiful- After (my) learning what was done to her career, I can't help but wonder how it is that she still seems to carry herself with grace.

    you mentioned "one hit wonders" -does anyone, other than me, remember this one? Timothy-The Buoys- 1971-pics ( on youtube). I can't figure out how to cut and paste the URL for a particular song on the youtube site and transfer to here. Would someone be so kind as to tell me how to do this? Thanks. As you can see, you can't go straight to song from the URL that I've posted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHRLWSk_Nzg o.k., so, all you have to do is send the message and it works, ok, I can handle that.
