  1. Hey, just for fun I would like to see you construct an example of a deductive argument which could be used to identify film noir.

    The Problem with Charlton Heston

    I do not think the movie Diamond Head was mentioned, probably for good reason. It was awful.

    My take as well, although, to be fair, it was on too late for me to stay awake past about the first day.

    What film is this scene from?

    The following is what could be described as off-the-wall speculation: It could be a scene from The Kentuckian with Burt Lancaster. In that movie he finds a pearl in a fresh water mussel and thinks it is valuable, provoking the mirth of more sophisticated townsfolk. I have a vague memory of him writing a letter to the President or someone important to offer the pearl.

    Need emoticon for yawn.

    Andy Hardy and the Holiday season(s) ?

    Mine too, along with the Alistair Sim version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The rest (including It's a Wonderful Life) I avoid.

    Yellow Sky

    LOL. Not bloody likely from a post made 7 years ago by a poster who was last active two years ago.
  8. I was trying to find Decoy (1946) to watch online and had the same issue. Lots of movies so titled. The one I wanted does not seem to be available anyway.

    Noir Alley

    He has not posted anything on Facebook so all you have missed is the same sort of speculations and opinions you can see here.

    But is there a scene where Gloria Talbot is in the water with her top soaked?

    Although I like most of Wilder's movies, I cannot stand Some Like it Hot.

    Unfilmed Noir

    I would add to that list, James Lee Burke novels featuring Dave Robicheaux. I think only one movie was made from these with Alec Baldwin as Robicheaux. I suspect one of the issues with this author as well as John D. McDonald is casting the lead. There are not that many actors who fit the physical description of the leading character. Certainly not Rod Taylor as Travis McGee or Alec Baldwin as Dave Robicheaux. (although both of those are closer to the book's description than Tom Cruise is to the book description of Jack Reacher).

    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."

    2. Is Spike Jones 4. Allen Jones?

    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'd love to see a biopic about..."

    Edgar Cayce.

    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!"

    Dandelion Wine maybe.

    Speaking of "Ma":
  24. 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.)
  25. 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.
