    Who would have thought a topic on Ringo could get heated? Ringo is royalty and so is Paul. While they are still with us lets cherish them.

    Miss W, you certainly are NOT derailing the thread. So far there have been 65 posts on 3 pages PRAISING Ringo and wishing him a Happy Birthday and liking that this thread was started. With 1 execption. that's who is "derailing" or at least trying to derail the thread, and it is not you!

    I'm hardly "derailing" it...I'm one of the posters here actually talking about Ringo. As for maturity, I've always closely identified with five-year-olds.

    Other countries are not reporting deaths or doing enough testing, it's pretty obvious. Those that are hoping for more deaths for political reasons need to get professional help. BTW for those that just woke up, the "experts" who having been predicting how this virus behaves have been about as accurate as global warming "experts", which means they've been totally wrong up to this point.

    You don't have to care, if you're not a fan of Ringo or the Beatles, why should you? However, quite often a thread is started here about an actor or director or someone else with some claim to fame, who I don't care about. I just respect the fact that others DO care about that person, and leave the thread alone. If you don't care, why bother posting in this thread at all?

    Yeah, I know what you're sayin' here, MissW. But, I've also always preferred the melodic opening guitar strains to "It Don't Come Easy" than I have the piano opening to "Photograph". And yes again, I know what you mean about Brian Wilson's musical ear too. In fact, just a couple years ago and because I've always loved it so much, I changed my cellphone's ringtone to the opening prelude of his song "California Girls"... One of the most melodic introductions to any song ever, I've always thought. But yes again, after that opening prelude ends and it goes into that rhythmic organ beat and then when the lyrics begin being sung, it's just not as interesting a song to me, and even though it's still a very good song overall. (...and from what I've heard, Brian Wilson's favorite of any of the songs he's ever written)

    According to MovieCollector's database, WHITE BANNERS has aired 17 times on TCM. The most recent airing was on January 2007. So it's been over thirteen years since it's been seen on the channel. It is not on Warner home video.

    I have very few intros prior to 2003. That was still the VHS era for me. I didn't record a lot of movies then. So if I happen to have one or two it was from an old VHS tape. In 2003 I bought a SONY Vaio desktop computer that could record from cable. Recording movies and intros was a breeze! At first I started collecting intros for movies I liked and ones I thought were important. Wish I had recorded more of the early Essentials for example. Eventually around 2010 I started to record ALL the intros! They were recorded more for posterity. Quality is good not perfect. I have all of the Cartoon Alley intros and wrap-ups from this era. With the advent of MP4 the recorded quality is now much better. I've missed a few here and there over the last decade. Not by choice though. Prime example, for what ever reason. I missed Eddie Muller's first intro for Noir Alley, THE MALTESE FALCON. I do have the wrap-up. So, yeah, thousands. It's an unforgiving beast of a hobby and at least once a month I ask myself, "To what end?"

    I like Madonna, she's a legend and has contributed so much to pop music and culture. But is she "better" than the Beatles? Of course not. Not even close. Although it's one of those apples and oranges situations (of course the Beatles would be the Apples.)

    And later put it on Disney+ streaming for all (well, subscribers, anyway) to see: https://www.disneyplus.com/movies/swiss-family-robinson-1940/3ea1UFZCVdki I've seen Warner's DVD, and it's good, from the days when they still did classic "Night at the Movies" 30's fodder and precode. It hasn't been banished to the Archive yet, although the Archive does have Ann Sheridan's Dead End Kids spinoff Angels Wash Their Faces (1939)

    Right, it's the general consensus among professional drummers (from all genres) that Ringo was and is one of the best. Flashy "show-offy" drum solos are not necessarily an indication of the drummer's talent. Same with George; a great rock guitarist, one of the very best. But George never felt the need to take off on long excruciating guitar solos; his playing always served the song, not the other way around. (ie, he did not use the song as an excuse to go into some prolonged solo that would have drawn more attention to his playing than to the song itself...)

    https://www.nitrateville.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13752&hilit=letty+lynton This thread on another forum summarizes the legal injunction hindering LL. Warner Archive reports having reached out to the relevant rightsholders in hopes of coming to a deal, but apparently they're not cooperating. In the case of Porgy and Bess, supposedly the surviving elements would require extensive and expensive restoration work. (And apparently the concerned parties can't come to a necessary agreement.) Escapade is a remake of the 1934 Austrian film Maskerade; rights issues are probably hindering it.

    Anyone would be swamped by Trump's lies. You only have so many seconds to respond. And anyway, Trump doesn't care about being fact checked. He just wants to lay out the lie for his base to hear. Obama stumbled in the debates when Romney employed the strategy of simply lying about everything. No one cared. They declared Romney the victor because he was the aggressor. Obama looked weak with his "that simply isn't true" comebacks. Romney stuck to the lies and his bravado won the day. Not only did he win over the stupid viewers but the stupid press as well.

    These conditions are crazy talk. When the jurisdiction is heading way south (in this case the USA) the non incumbent has all of the advantages going into a debate. E.g. they don't have to defend what they did, but only say, in hindsight, what they would have done. The incumbent has to defend their actions and those of their admin. That is a much bigger challenge. My guess is that these bogus conditions were set up with the knowledge that Trump would never approve them, because Biden supporters like Friedman know he is a poor debater and fear that debates with Trump can only hurt Biden. I.e. there is ZERO upside for Biden in debating. PS: the fact-checker stunt is really an insult to Biden. Any sound debater knows the facts and wants their opponent to lie and \ or stretch the truth. This gives them the perfect opportunity to rebut those lies and half-truth claims with FACTS! But Joe is too old, stupid, lacks the memory, slow-on-his-feet to do that. This is what Friedman must believe otherwise why the need for such a silly stunt.

    My advice to all Republican voters is not to trust the mail in vote. And don't trust the ballot box either as it can be easily manipulated. The only way to safeguard your sacred vote is NOT to vote at all. This advice only applies to Republicans.

    What does it mean when the drummer is drooling out of both sides of his mouth? The drum platform is level and you are good to go. ------ Two drunks are walking along. One drunk says to the other, "What a beautiful night, look at the moon." The other drunk stops and looks at his drunk friend. "You're wrong, that's not the moon, that's the sun." They began to argue when they come upon a drummer. They asked, "Sir, could you please help settle our argument? Tell us what that thing is up in the sky that's shining. Is it the moon or the sun?" The drummer looked at the sky and said, "Sorry, I don't live around here."

    Mature is/was always full of those interesting kind of stories. One I liked was when he was filming some "Swords-and-Sandals" flick, business partner JIM BACKUS picked him up to rush to some crisis at one of their business concerns with Vic still in costume. They stopped for a bite at a roadside diner and the waitress looked hesitantly at Vic and the way he was dressed and Vic, in good humor allegedly asked her, "What's the matter? Don't you serve men in uniform? " And that he wasn't above self parody(think "After The Fox") or self deprecation, as we all know the tale of his trying to join a certain country club that refused him admission with the explanation "We're sorry, but we prohibit actors from membership." and Vic protesting...... "I'm not an actor, and I've got 30 pictures under my belt that proves it!" Sepiatone

    A young dancer made her feature film debut in 1943's "Something To Shout About", which has been shown on TCM. She was billed as Lily Norwood. In all future movies, she was billed as Cyd Charisse. Yes, born Tula Ellice Finklea, she married her one time dance teacher, Nico Charisse, when she was eighteen. Her first name, Cyd, was a family nickname. When her brother was learning to talk, he tried to call her Sis, but it came out Sid. With a spelling change, she became Cyd.
