    [b]In what year was I born?[/b]

    Sorry I haven't answered in such a long time. I haven't had time to even check the message boards in quite a while. As far as the emoticons, I can't really help you there. I don't use them very often myself, so I don't know much about them. Sorry.

    Ellie, you're not old, you're just well seasoned. Now then, about the emoticons . . . Go to Yahoo! home page and type in the word "emoticons" in the search line. On the results page, there should be a link that reads, "Learn how to make Yahoo! emoticons." Click on that and it will show what you need to type to get different characters. Enjoy! B-) This is one of my favorites. I call him "Too Cool to Drool"!!

    [b]In what year was I born?[/b]

    Okay, I'm back. Couldn't get back sooner because my 4 month old granddaughter was here. She demands undivided attention. (And of course, she gets it!!) I figured the most logical way to progress is for the person guessing the correct year to post the next list. Other than that, I didn't have any specific rules in mind. As long as the progression makes sense and we can keep up with it. Oh, of course, path was right--1955!! BTW--The movie I was watching was Blood Alley. Just got it on DVD!
  6. Okay, I got this idea the other night as I was watching one of my favorite movies. I found that the movie was released the year I was born. Think you can identify the year of my birth by a list of some of the movies released that year? If you're interested, then give it a try!! The first to guess correctly can add a list of his/her own. Okay, in no particular order, here goes . . . Mister Roberts Blood Alley The Seven Year Itch Oklahoma East of Eden The Trouble with Harry Bad Day at Black Rock Marty To Catch a Thief The Rose Tattoo Not a bad year, movie-wise!! I listed 10 movies from my birth year, but any one else should feel free to list as few or as many as you'd like!

    Who today will be added to the list of greats?

    I believe no self respecting "great actor" list could be complete without WALTER MATTHAU! He was such a CHARACTER! He could play comedy roles to perfection. But that wasn't the limit of his talents. Oh, I'm not good at calling film titles to mind, but he had several dramatic roles in which he excelled. He could play characters that you wanted as friends, or those that you loved to hate. I like the Grumpy Old Men movies, but I guess one of my favorite Matthau movies is "The Sunshine Boys," which he did with George Burns. Anyhow, in my humble opinion, no list of "great actors" would be complete if it did not include WALTER MATTHAU!!! Oh, BTW, I agree that Mickey Rooney is one of the greatest. After all, an actor's purpose is to be entertaining. And in whatever "vehicle" he acted, Mr. Rooney was entertaining!

    Tired of signal problems with TCM

    fuster, I like that description of yourself -- TCM junkie. If my husband were to hear that, he'd agree that's my affliction as well. When I'm home, I have the TV on and tuned to TCM. Even if I don't have time to sit and watch a movie, I have TCM tuned in so I can listen to it and catch glimpses. Most of the films are like old friends -- they're so familiar, I know what they're going to say before they say it, and I know I can always count on them to give me a lift when I need one!! Oh, and as the others have responded, the only time I have a problem with the picture is during bad weather when all of the satelite channels are messed up.

    Not yet! Clue #5 Lauren Bacall
  13. Okay, I'm going back a month or so. But in response to stoneyburke, I want to add -- AMEN!!! I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're exactly right. I don't think Robert Mitchum was the most handsome actor on the screen. But man, did he have PRESENCE!!! (Well, he did come close to most handsome in HEAVEN KNOWS, MR. ALLISON) Animal magnetism. . . Yes, I think that's it exactly!
