    What are you reading

    "Stage career"? 🤣 That would imply that I'm an actor! Trust me, when it comes to being on stage, I am, at best, a dilettante. But I enjoy being a small part of the creative process. And, in answer to your question, since I don't consider myself an actor, I do my best to do what the director tells me to do.

    What are you reading

    This one is already on my shelf waiting to be read and your post is tempting me to get to it sooner rather than later. Considering that I read the first volume when it came out way back in 2001, though, I will probably reread that one first.

    What are you reading

    At the risk of disappointing you, Sarge, my reading of Charlotte's Web was not the first step on such a worthwhile literary endeavor. I will be taken part in a local production of a play based upon that novel and thought it best to revisit the original source material prior to the start of rehearsals.

    What are you reading

    Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White. Obviously my current reading is not as esoteric as LawrenceA’s!
  7. Charley Varrick (1973) - TCM w/ Walter Matthau, Joe Don Baker, Felicia Farr, Andy Robinson, Sheree North and John Vernon. And directed by Don Siegel. Caught this one as part of a double feature in a second run theatre back in the '70s. Haven't seen it since but my memories of it (especially of Mr. Baker's performance) are strong enough that I've been looking forward to tonight's airing.

    What Are You Watching Now?

    Please note that I do not have any of these movies in a different home video format so any comparisons I make would be to what I've seen on television/cable. And on that basis all three movies looked and sounded great to me. Especially The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973). Last presentation of that one I caught was, to put it nicely but bluntly, **** material. Probably why we don't catch that one on TCM. Although the nudity may also have something to do with that! 😉 On a related note, this is also the first time I've seen the BFI restored version of The Horror of Dracula (1958). The additional footage in that version is absolutely nothing to get excited over. I hope you didn't buy it just for that.

    What Are You Watching Now?

    The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) - Blu-ray w/ Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Michael Coles, Freddie Jones and Joanna Lumley And, of course, the third and final recent Region A release from Warner Archives of the Hammer Dracula series of movies. At this point, the only two from that series which I still don't have are Scars of Dracula (1970) and The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974) which have still not been released on blu-ray in the US. But a recent posting from LawrenceA indicates the latter should become available in April and I will definitely be picking that one up.
