    The End of "TV"

    So, how was the date? I do not think Jim Lange was the host of whatever show I was watching. I think it may have been The Love Connection hosted by Chuck Woolery.

    The End of "TV"

    This discussion puts me in mind of an episode I saw years ago on something like The Dating Game. The contestant was a young lady who was asked by the host (name forgotten, maybe Bob Eubank) what she was looking for in a man. She replied that she had thought long and hard about that issue. I leaned forward in my recliner awaiting a nuanced and maybe even poetic response. She said "He has got to be good looking, and he has to drive a nice car."

    Movie Trivia

    I saw it a few years ago and thought it was quite good. I may have even seen it on TCM.

    Movie Trivia

    I think you mean Robert Schumann. Otherwise you are surely correct.

    I Just Watched...

    I have seen the movie and read the book you are referencing. However, I believe it is called "Staying On" rather than "Moving On". I really like the interaction between the henpecked husband and his wife "I am ownership; you are management".

    I still consider Jewel in the Crown about the best series ever created for television.

    What about the guy who appeared as Teddy Roosevelt toward the end of the movie "Buffalo Bill (1944)? But wait, that was Sidney Blackmer too! "Splendid performance! Bully!"

    Speaking of "Ma":
  12. Perhaps it is my Malcolm Muggerage avatar combined with the ease with which this site can be spammed that makes me a target. If I try to access that site when not lingering here, Malwarebytes blocks it. (not that I want to visit it anyway.)
  13. Really? She is one of my favorite actresses and has nothing to do with that genealogy website Movies include Molly's Game, Miss Sloane, The Help, Crimson Peak and many others.
  14. The outbound traffic notices which Malwarebytes blocks for me is www.chastaincentral.com. It appears to be a site Malwarebytes considers malicious that appears to be a geneology site of some kind. Perhaps I should not have googled Jessica Chastain the other day, but I just could not help myself
  15. I would not be surprised. Whenever I visit this site, I get notices from Malwarebytes that some website sending "outbound traffic" has been blocked.

  17. When I tried to log on earlier there was a forum upgrade notification and I wondered whether something was being done about the spam. No such luck. Earlier there was a bunch of posts containing links to online movies, but no Korean spam. Now the Korean spam is back with as much gusto as ever.

    I think Professor Metz and his roaches did not make it into the 1942 movie version. Jimmy Durante played Banjo, a significant role. I played the pompous and much put upon Mr. Stanley. The play was so tiresome, his irritation required no acting.

    I Just Watched...

    One of those films I simply cannot watch again. Maybe because I was in a community theater production once where the director cut nothing out of the script. I just got sick to death of the play
  20. That is what my dad used to refer to as "that dreaming crap from the 30's".

    Name changes(TV/movie characters....)

    Yeah, true. Besides the last name was Banner, not Bannon. I was just groping for a reason why his first name was changed. And, as usual, am likely wide of the mark.

    Name changes(TV/movie characters....)

    In the comic book version of the Hulk, the scientist who got bombarded by gamma rays was Bruce Bannon. In the TV series, his name was changed to David. I suppose in the pre-Bruce Willis days, "Bruce" was considered too "limp-wristed".

    Is no 3 Dorothy Kilgallen?

    GUESS WHO?

    1. Faye Emerson. If I recall she appeared on To Tell the Truth and I've Got a Secret as a panelist.

    Trivia game

    That has to be correct. The director, Delbert Mann and the female co-star Betsy Blair (married to Gene Kelly) also fit the criteria.
