    I Just Watched...

    How, in your view, does this version compare with the earlier version starring Robert Morley and the later version starring Stephen Fry? I liked both of those versions, but have not seen this one. I have always been interested in this trial and even have a book containing a verbatim transcript of the trial.

    RECONSTRUCTION: America After the Civil War

    This sentence, taken verbatim from Judith Butler's Further Reflections on the Conversations of Our Time was enough to give her The Philosophy and Literature Bad Writing Award for 1998. http://theconversation.com/redetermining-paradigmatic-norms-is-there-any-hope-for-academic-writing-62968

    Did anyone predict the Oscars?

    I thought the issue of who predicted what was addressed ad nauseum in another thread.-

    What are you reading

    Just finished The Gentle Axe a novel involving a murder being investigated by Porfiry Petrovich, the detective in Crime and Punishment. A good read.

    TCM Premieres

    It will not be the same without the "Ivory Snow Girl".

    quirky submarine captains

    How about Das Boot? Great film involving anti-Nazi U-Boat commander with a Nazi girlfriend. Obviously does not fit your "American Navy" preference, but the captain is intense, driven to save his men, even at the cost of the ship.

    That's a nice car!

    Nothing against the Valiant, or any slant 6 vehicle, but Dennis Weaver's driving was, s the most incompetent and ineffectual since the driving of Dana Andrews in Hot Rods from Hell😉
  8. Is this the scene of the New Year's Eve party William Holden flees to in Sunset Boulevard after his evening with Gloria Swanson? Even if it is, that does not aid much in identifying the woman pictured.

    I bet you liked the mustache and swagger stick. I did.
  10. Agree. Also Kevin Costner changed the tribe from Commanche to Sioux.
  11. Dargo's Law should include how long it takes to mention Ben M. "nasally voice". What has that to do with an airport name? Probably nothing. Why is a topic as boring as the name of an airport worthy of a thread of this length?

    Film about female doctor - 30s or 40s

    It may be The Girl in White, a 1952 movie starring June Allyson.

    Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

    It was called "The Strange One" based on a Calder Willingham novel (End as a Man).

    Archaic Expressions in Films

    Or its variant "criminently". I used to hear my mother cry "damnation!" from time to time. I thought she was cursing the country. In any event, I never hear that any more.

    Not that you need this link, but I found it interesting with respect to the term "Sam Hill": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Hill_(euphemism)
