    The MeToo Movement

    From your experience, where do you think the MeToo movement fits in on most online chat sites? For example, if I am on a vintage and antique appreciation chat room, though as posters we admire the items from the past, should we also accept the acceptable norms of behaviour from that period, such as having a fellow poster espouse tenets of the white supremacy style groups or men treating woman as second class citizens and being abusive in language? I wlll say responsible sites like Facebook at least have a block button so a poster can eliminate someone from constantly responding to their posts with intransigent harassment, which is a good thing. Why should anyone have to associate with cranky and miserable folks who just are annoyingly always blabbing their invective? What say you?

    I totally dig Allison Hayes, Sepia! She was the first movie star who really looked good with frosted hair.

    Misleading Titles

    I don't wear slips of any kind, Detective Jim. You must only be dating women of about ninety years old to think that... There might have been many a slip betwixt tongue and lip in your day, but those days are ancient history now in the female undergarment market. Next week we will discuss the underwire bra, if you like?

    Kid Sisters

    Love that movie and you are so right about its noir heritage, arpirose!

    Kid Sisters

    Pat Hitchcock is one of the few relatives of a director or performer who I think was really talented and added to the film or tv episode. Margaret O'Brien, the kid who asked how far down the director wanted her tears to fall, she was that good at crying. Love her, Sepia and thanks!

    That's hilarious and I agree, illegitimate does make more sense due to their ages!

    Misleading Titles

    At first glance, the movie "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman" sounds so polite, as if the Monster and Larry Talbot are wearing three-piece suits specially made for them by Brooks Brothers and are being formally introduced at the Engineers Club.I find the title amusing, as it gives a very Emily Vanderbilt picture of their first encounter, and the parts should be played by the debonair Errol Flynn shaking hands with the genteel Tyrone Power, both in frightening regalia. Now for movie buffs, we all get it, but imagine those who don't, plus we're not even mentioning that in Michael Cohen shorthand ways, we also know instinctively due to watching too many horror films, that it is Frankenstein's creation, the Monster, who is meeting up with the Wolfman, not his creator. Of course this misleading title is a minor faux example, but I'm sure there are so many more serious types to explore. Imagine wasting your hard earned money if the title said something like "Tammy and Godzilla Go to Hawaii" and you thought you'd be seeing some romantic interludes.Nevertheless, misleading titles are interesting and if you can name some more egregious examples, that would be revelatory.

    I bet you've met some "hot tamales" in your time also, Sepia?

    Haunted Houses

    Thanks for the very impressive "ectoplasmic" contribution to my thread, Sepia. For me, I'd prefer to have a ghost dog, like Neil, the St. Bernard, who was in the "Topper" series. Hopefully his supply of liquor on his collar would be visible at all times?

    Sarge is dreamy, CigarJoe but then you are too! And I will say only you seem to have the guts to post a real live living photo of your handsome mug.

    Haunted Houses

    Being that I love all things "Tiki" I would want to haunt the Tiki room at Graceland. I went to Memphis just to see all the Witco furniture and it was marvelous! I think there is even a waterfall there but I might have be confused because right as I was looking at the room behind the velvet ropes the tour guide was describing how the cook for Elvis made his fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Too bad they weren't playing some Les Baxter or Yma Sumac along with songs from "Blue Hawaii". Tiki wahine ghosts would seem to be quite appealing as a haunting figure in a home. I agree with TikiSoo that haunting an empty factory seems like a thankless task for the dead.

    DETOUR (1945) on Movies! channel---an "edit"!

    Do you think they will soon have to take all the black blotches out of the drawings of milk bottles, in the Baltimore Catechism, that represent mortal sins? This is a joke in case any complaint posts come in asap.

    Haunted Houses

    OMG! What a cool story. I'm like you, Janet...very "skeptical" but open to any new findings. Just have been enjoying a new show on the TRVL channel called "Paranormal" which you might like. They show volunteered personal footage from people all over the world about paranormal events. One of the best was shot in Cork, Ireland at a high school called Deerpark I think. It was footage shot after hours of lockers opening and chairs moving all around in hallways. Check it out and thanks for sharing, Janet!

    Actor Jan-Michael Vincent (1945-2019)

    Ah, what a sad story. Loved him in one of the best drive-in movies of all time, "Buster and Billie". Thanks, Jakeem.

    Bogus Movie Biographies

    I come here to talk about movies, but some people just like to argue, and try to start fights. Perhaps it would be best if you put me on Ignore, if my posts get you this upset.

    Bogus Movie Biographies

    I should clarify and say somewhat "bogus" or mostly "bogus" I guess, since many films about famous personages only take some liberties with the truth, and can have factual material mixed in.Take for example, "The Agony and the Ecstasy". Now the basic storyline is okay I guess even though some bits are fudged like people's ages and such, but basically Michelangelo's duress under Pope Julius II, is true enough. What is not so true, is the complete avoidance of Michelangelo's basic human core, of shall we say, attraction to men, and this is not just be omission but also by direct tactics of trying to create the inference of possible romantic liaisons with women, like the one played by Diana Cilento in the film.Not saying there is some romantic scene of them kissing in the Sistine Chapel, but still. This is not just like having the wrong school mentioned in a film, or incorrect minor information being purveyed to the viewer, but a possible basic background component of a personality that seems essential to a biography of such. It is pretty well established historically that at the very least, Michelangelo was writing love notes to Tommaso dei Cavalieri and the one woman he was just friends with, Vittoria Colonna was just a buddy, plus his descendants tried to change the gender of wording in his poems to seemingly hide things.Any somewhat or seriously flawed movie biographies you have seen?

    I think you could forget the "Stygian stench" if there were more Callipygian influences in your environment, Henry David Markoff!

    Stars that deserve discussion

    Great topic! I don't think anyone has mentioned Cloris Leachman, but I love her. She can be in serious roles and be totally believable but also play comedy better than anyone, no matter how outrageous. If anyone has mentioned her, she deserves to be mentioned twice!
