    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    Of course Bernie is a capitalist. That just makes it all the more silly and foolish that he is getting into a whose-is-bigger contest with Warren!

    I Just Watched...

    Yes, Manhattan Melodrama is a solid film and one I have always enjoyed. Like many (I assume), I found this film after seeing some Thin Man films, falling for the Powell \ Loy team. Of course this film is a drama but in some ways that makes it a special Powell \ Loy film. Gable was also very good as a charming not-so-good-guy. A must-see for fans of these three.

    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    I agree with this, but one of my points was that often for a mixed-raced person, their answer changes based on who they are responding to. Another thing I have found is that based on the race of the person how I answer is questioned; E.g. my typical response is that I'm race-neutral; I.e. I don't wish to classify myself as belonging to any ethnic or racial 'group'. But my old time white friends just laugh at that and say "you're as white as me" since I had just as much white 'privilege' as them (we had the biggest house in the area, with the nicest pool and landscape, cars, schooling, tutoring (e.g. those violin lessons!!), etc...

    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    Yea, I corrected that, thanks. Yea, he was 90 and passed over two weeks ago but it took a while for the local Catholic church to set things up. It was a nice event and there was a sign with his picture that had his family nickname; Gramps - white boy!

    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    See folks the above ignorant comment is why Bernie shouldn't have dumb down the discussion of our nation's complex economic system. Now those supporting anyone-but-Trump have to worry now many other numskull voters there are out there that view the topic like Bernie and silly, ignorant conservatives.

    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    You know that I know what her background is since I have been following her career here in CA for over 20 years. Yes, she is mixed-race but sadly like Obama, Tiger, and the majority of others that are, they must act like their soul is from one-race in order to appeal to that race. This came up at my dad's funeral last Saturday: He is the only white-boy in the family (his two wife's were Asian and his grand kids are a mix of Asian and Hispanic and only 1\4 white). My other brother was born in Japan. Well he said he always felt he was more Japaneses than us other siblings born in the USA. That surprised me, but I agreed with him that I don't define myself as white, Japanese,,, I'm just a So Cal guy. BUT if I was running for office here in CA: Yea, I would really bond with the Hispanic side of my family, since that is were the votes are!

    What????? Isn't Harris African-Amerian? Oh, wait she is black, right??? Oh, wait, she is whatever the focus groups want her to be!

    Bernie Sanders slams Elizabeth Warren as ‘capitalist’

    Bernie is a fool for treating something as complex as an entire nations' economic system in such a non-complex binary manner. But I'm sure the GOP is loving his dumb downed talking points!

    Seven Days In May

    Read above the reason why B&W works better for films with certain themes. Other than that I see no reason why not to make a film in color and that doing so has nothing to do with colorizing a film (a practice that is blasphemy, but NOT just making a new adaptation in color). Note; I use the term adaptation but there is no such concept as a re-make in my world.

    Still crying about blacklisting

    Uh,,,,,, director Jules Dassin did have to move to France. There were no commie witch hunts going on over there!
  12. Jane was in some good films; Walk on the Wild Side, Period of Adjustment, Sunday in New York, Cat Ballou, Barefoot in the Park, They Shoot Horses, Don't They, Klute, Fun with Dick and Jane, Julia, and 9 to 5.

    Archaic Expressions in Films

    The Gun Moll was a dangerous item to have on hand; she could be soft and thus an easy target for the cops to get at the inner workings of the gang. Johnny Farrell was right; women gum up the works. Better to have Fante and Mingo working for ya instead.
  14. You know how many admirers she has????? Wow, you're a real tool.

    Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

    I agree that Trump is too dirty and deranged to continue his duties, but I don't see him leaving voluntary.

    Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

    Forced?????? The only legal process for that is impeachment resulting in a conviction. So again, you have too much faith in GOP Senators.

    Trump vs Turkey & Kurdish allies....

    ISIS was never 'gone'. But it does appear many people at this forum believed the Trump admin BS that it was.
  19. Isn't this latest 'plan' by Warren trying to get support from one group of people (people-of-color), but marginalizing non-people-of-color (whites)? In addition Warren clearly tries to divide people based on wealth: E.g. that the rich have screwed you people over thus spreading hate. What Warren is doing is similar to what Trump did with his promise that Mexico would pay for a wall. PS: I don't have an issue with what Warren is doing, since we are a very divided nation that needs to acknowledge the dislike and anger people of the various demographic groups have towards each other.

    Funny but the TCM 'genre' for this film is 'romance'. Despite the solid cast, the film falls flat for me. But I'm interested in Eddie's take on the film.
  21. I went to the one in Long Beach since I grew up in nearby Seal Beach. Didn't know it was owned by the bad-guy from Key Largo until I read it at this website!
  22. TCM could show In This Our Life. This is the Davis film the Turner scene above impacted. No more sweaters for Bette!
  23. Looks like pandering to people-of-color by a person that falsely claimed they were one of them. Wise pandering since it is likely to be fool enough people. PS: Warren knows that even a Dem majority Senate would never support such a 'plan'.
  24. She caused Bette Davis a lot of trouble:

    Draft evasion

    Sex is an action (behavior) so both homosex and hetrosex are actions. What is NOT an action is sexual-orientation. Sexual-orientation is folly and a made-up social construct. One isn't born-this-way since one isn't this-way, period. There is no 'way'; That being my POV, I agree 'who the hell cares anyway?". Some do and they need to grow-up and get over it.
