    What are you reading

    My reading since finishing Charlotte's Web: High Stakes edited by George R. R. Martin & Melinda M. Snodgrass: The 23rd book in the Wild Cards series of anthologies and novels which forms another shared universe featuring superheroes, etc. (Why should Marvel and DC have all the fun?) which has being going on and off since 1987 (and I've been there since the beginning). Considering the buzzwords above, no one should be surprised to learn that Hollywood has an active interest in this series. The Mammy by Brendan O'Carroll: Basically a series of stories (primarily humorous) about a late-1960s Dublin woman with seven children in her first year of widowhood. The basis for Anjelica Huston's Agnes Browne (1999). Bing Crosby: A Pocketful of Dreams - The Early Years, 1903-1940 by Gary Giddins: Currently rereading this one before I tackle the sequel. When it is 17 years between books, it's probably for the best that I don't rely on my memory. I assume this list qualifies for the word "eclectic"?
  3. 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!". 😀 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).

    Final Lines By Oscar Winning Characters

    Is the 5th one Gene Hackman in The French Connection (1971)? Sounds like something a cop would say when he/she still hasn't caught the criminal.

    Final Lines By Oscar Winning Characters

    I'm batting .300 on this one. I only have answers for the 3rd, the 7th and the 9th lines off the top of my head (and will not write those answers here and spoil the fun for others).

    Haunted Houses

    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.
