    I enjoyed TLFT as well. Actually, Kristine Miller was my favorite even though her part was pretty small. I also liked Don DeFore, but I kept waiting for Shirley Booth as Hazel to show up and call him Mr. "B". My wife and I were both afraid he was going to be the guy that Duryea blackmailed. As always I thought Eddie's intro and wrap-up really added to the viewing experience. Thank goodness there are people that still want to preserve these treasures from our past.

    I Just Watched...

    I just watched ACROSS THE PACIFIC and it was enjoyable. It was made right after THE MALTESE FALCON and features Bogart, Astor, Greenstreet and is directed by John Huston. While it's not as good as TMF, it has it's moments. I've read that Huston had to leave for military service before he could finish. This explains why the final scenes don't seem to measure up to the rest of the film. Still one cannot go wrong with these players. All in all I give it a solid B.

    Films of 2018

    I'm sure it's my age, but it seems like there aren't many great movies being made these days. Everything I see advertised is comic book stuff or post apocalyptic action films with over-the-top special effects. Green Book looks good, but I haven't seen anything else that is appealing. We watch a lot of Netflix and Prime. They seem to get all the good stories and the actors are following the scripts.

    Movies I watch again and again.

    There is another one I watch frequently, but mainly for just one scene. I love the scene in the train station in THE UNTOUCHABLES when Ness (Costner) and Stone (Garcia) apprehend Capone's bookkeeper. The slow motion sequence with the baby carriage bouncing down the stairs is classic. Ness- "You got him?" Stone- "Yeah, I got him" Ness-"Take him".

    Yes. I believe you're right. There weren't many Johnny Cochrans around back in those days.

    I tend to agree. I enjoyed THE POST, but ATPM was better. For one thing, the actors in ATPM actually looked like the people they were playing. Also, I thought it was great that Bradlee had a "pet" name for his two young reporters. He called them "Woodstein" collectively.

    Yes. Hal Holbrook was great as Deep Throat. However, I still think Robards was perfect as Bradlee. Tom Hanks was good as Bradlee in THE POST too, but Robards "nailed it" with his performance.

    I know this topic was covered recently, but I couldn't find it. I feel sure someone will tell me how to find it again. In the meantime I thought of one last night watching a documentary about Watergate. "We're about to run a story saying the Attorney General, the highest ranking law enforcement official in the country, is a crook. We damn well better be right!" - Jason Robards as Ben Bradlee in ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN.

    Wow, that's perfect. The club to which I belong, primarily for golf, has a library with a fireplace, leather sofas and stuffed chairs where one can sip brandy, but they don't allow cigars. Still it doesn't hold a candle to your place. I feel sure there have been some movies made there.

    Just viewed THE WOMEN IN THE WINDOW and loved it. I know a lot of you prefer SCARLET STREET. I guess I liked the "lighter" version. Also, the comments earlier about the club where a lot of the story takes place were on target. Although they were probably for men only back in the 40s, which wouldn't fly today, these clubs still exist in some circles. Sitting by a fireplace with a cigar and a glass of brandy while chatting with friends is my idea of heaven. Being a dinosaur in 2018 is probably why I'm so attracted to TCM and Noir Alley. The men all wore suits and hats. The women dressed glamorously. Sure, everyone drank and smoked too much, but it just seemed like a classier time. I realize these are just movies and not everyone lived like the characters in these films. Still it's a nice escape from today's world. I guess you could say "it's the stuff that dreams are made of".

    JOURNEY TO ITALY was good, but I liked DEATH OF A SCOUNDREL better.

    Apparently, this is George Sanders day. TCM has featured several of his movies all day. Most of which I haven't seen. Today was a good day to binge watch TCM as it's been 40* and raining all day here in Charlotte.
