  1. Talk about starting off the bar high! It's no wonder I get tempted to try one of these challenges. And then I channel my inner Garth and declare "I'm not worthy!".¬†ūüėÄ

    Would love for the concept of a weekly spotlight on classic television movies to be a reality, TB. I could easily spend an evening with Andy "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Mayberry anymore" Griffith: The Strangers in 7A (1972), Pray for the Wildcats (1974) and Savages (1974).

  2. Euripides to The Cyclops (1957)?¬†ūü§£ I'm fairly confident that Bert I. Gordon did not have the Euripides' satyr play in mind when he wrote and directed that one!¬†ūüėČ

    As for Norman Mailer...

    The Naked and the Dead (1958)

    Next: Sophocles (and, yes, it is all Greek to me!)

    Or even a path of non-musical musings. Is she really married to him? :)

    ‚ÄúIs she really going out with him? Is she really gonna¬†take him home tonight? ...‚Ä̬†ūüėČ

  4. So many choices. Heck, even The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) is, technically, a haunted house movie.

    My favorite is The Uninvited (1944) with Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, Donald Crisp, Gail Russell and Cornelia Otis Skinner.

    cigarjoe’s The Legend of Hell House (1973) is also on my short list. First haunted house movie I ever saw on the big screen.

    Just for the record, Costello released two albums before Jackson's first.

    Very true. But, in my case,¬†whenever any mentions ‚ÄúElvis Costello‚ÄĚ, the first thought that comes to my mind is ‚ÄúDiana Krall‚ÄĚ which takes me down a completely different path of musical musings.

    I'm finishing up a detour reading musician Joe Jackson's autobiography because it needs to be returned to the lie-berry. Then I'm going to dig into Flamini's Irving Thalberg book-given to my Mother that she's never read!

    One of my favorite singer/songwriters! How was it?
