  1. Noir Alley

    I used to have a photo of my dad circa 1950(ish ) standing in front of his car in the parking lot area of his apartment building in Thousand Oaks, CA. The car looks like this! I'm going to email this pic to him and find out if it's the same model. My sisters and I used to tease him that it looked more like something that should be in the water.
  2. Great Songs That Play Over Movie Credits

    The very wordy "Windmills Of Your Mind", sung by Noel Harrison, makes for a lovely beginning to THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR:
  3. I was looking through a very large stack of magazines once at an antique store and came across a LIFE magazine from 1949 with Marge and Gower Champion on the cover. It cost me $0.75. I have no idea if it was worth more, but it was priceless to me!
  4. I too collect autobiographies and biographies. At one point, I had collected many of the big books that the studio era companies released. I had The MGM Story, The Warner Bros Story, The United Artist Story, The RKO Story, and The Columbia Story. I was never able to find The Paramount Story or The Universal Story. In early 1997, flooding muddy waters raged through the living room area of my apartment, sending my bookcase and other furniture to the floor. All my books in this room were completely ruined. I used to really enjoy looking at the still photos in those books, especially the photos of the films that didn't survive the nitrate age.
  5. I'm just thrilled to see Fred Astaire's name at number 5 among that list of luminaries!
  6. Art Bell dies at 72

    For anyone who is interested, Coast To Coast am will be airing a tribute show to Art Bell in tonight's time slot ( Thur 10pm-Fri 2am in most areas.) Many of Bell's guests are scheduled to call in, and clips of his most famous segments will be played. https://www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2018/04/19
  7. Art Bell dies at 72

    Crystal Gayle wrote this song, MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT, specially for Art Bell. He closed his shows with it for the remainder of his radio career.
  8. Art Bell dies at 72

    I remember bringing my ear closer to the radio every time Bell would answer the wildcard line. He did actually move back to Pahrump. He started a show on Sirius Radio called Dark Matter, but I guess he lost interest in it. I enjoy George Noory. Definitely not "out there" like Art Bell, but good in his own way. Really nice guy, too.
  9. Actor Harry Anderson (1952-2018)

    Sad news. I was always a fan of his, both as a comedian and magician. My late husband was a magician, and was also a big fan of Harry's. I still have his book, GAMES YOU CAN'T LOSE: A GUIDE FOR SUCKERS. Well, my husband must be having a great time up there right now, first with Art Bell, and now with Harry Anderson. ~RIP
  10. Star centennial birthdays

    Happy centennial birthday to William Holden, born April 17, 1918! And, happy centennial birthday to Anne Shirley, also born April 17,1918!
  11. Great Songs That Play Over Movie Credits

    Nice sing along-type of opening title to THERE WAS A CROOKED MAN, sung by Trini Lopez:
  12. Great One-Liners

    Tuco: "See you soon, i, i, id..." Blondie: ..."Idiots- It's for you."
  13. I was a bit surprised to see REPULSION in an Underground time slot. I usually associate Underground with kind of, well, not so great films. Maybe that's just my taste, though. The film I think provides some really good insight as to how severally mentally disturbed people may view the world, and may be a motive in the heinous crimes some of them commit.
  14. Not of This Earth

    Maybe that's what the Korean spam is all about; they're trying to find a portal to our brains through this forum.
  15. I just saw something odd ( at least I think so.) While watching THE MOONLIGHTER this morning, 45 minutes into the film there is a title card for an intermission. The film resumes promptly, but the entire duration of the film is only 1.5 hours! Isn't it strange that there would have been an intermission?
