    I live in the O.C. and this gets mentioned every time there is a national race-issue. Pols will talk about it,,,, a very small group of activist will complain,,,and then it will be forgotten. Of course maybe this time will be different, but I doubt it. PS: I always wanted the airport to be named after a great actor, Claire Trevor; She did much better work then Wayne and contributed a lot more to Orange County CA than he did.

    John Wayne's name clearly suggests a legacy of racial intolerance and historical shame-- Let's return the airport's name to the more understanding historical name of its California city: Santa Ana. They're the same ones who wanted Reagan's face on the $20 (and push Alexander Hamilton off the $10, he wasn't president!), because every great recently-deceased uber-conservative Republican who became famous in the mainstream must be canonized in time for the funeral. They've approved a clause in Arnold Schwarzenegger's will to rename Austria after his death, and insisted that all shotguns over a certain caliber are now to be referred to as "Hestons".

    So what have those racist Democrats of the '60s got to do with Democrats running for office in 2020? Racists today vote Republican, moreso than ever with Trump in power. And anyone who votes for Trump, even if he/she isn't racist, knows that by voting for him they are enabling racism in America. You seem very eager to point out the racists that have existed in the Democrat Party in the past, MM. But you only do it to finger point. If you thought racism was evil you wouldn't be voting for Trump. Period. This thread is just more finger pointing trolling on your part. It's not because you oppose racism.

    The Lincoln Project @ProjectLincoln The president "didn't hear" the man shout "White Power." The president "didn't see" the brief about Russia. The president "didn't know" about Juneteenth. Not knowing isn't an excuse, it's an indictment.

    The NEW Republican blame game seems to be targeting the American people for being stupy-dupes. Pence, Azar De Santis and even Sleepy Ben Carson were all trotted out to point fingers at the people for why the virus is seeing a resurgence. Sleepy Ben said we all know to wash our hands but the 'problem is the people aren't doing it.' One minute they are declaring the virus defeated then when it comes back they blame the people for listening to them.

    Ok, full disclosure: I really don't like The Lady from Shanghai very much. Today was the second time in two months that I watched it (TCM showed it, not in the Noir Alley slot, I think one evening in April?? and I watched it then, not for the first time.) Why don't I like it? Let me count the ways...It's not just that the plot is almost incomprehensible; that's a feature of many noirs, and plot is not the main reason why I like this type of film. Still, the plot of TLFS seems to be even more complicated than most noirs -- and it's not enjoyable enough to do the work to try and understand it. None of the characters are at all likable--even Orson's character, the hapless Michael O'Hara, is a bit annoying- and not just because of the bad Irish accent. (Why does he have to be Irish, anyway? He could have been American and it would not have affected the story one jot.) But Michael is a saint compared to the rest of the lot on that horrible cruise. I can't stand the way they all just lie around, being decadent and unpleasant and cryptic. I just can't get interested in any of them or their stories. Maybe if we'd been told why Elsa (Rita Hayworth) had married Arthur Bannister in the first place, we might have a little more sympathy for her. It's implied that she got into some sort of trouble when she lived in Shanghai (she actually seems to have told the truth about that, she really did live in Shanghai once) and that Bannister saved her, presumably for the price of marriage to him. But she's so uninteresting, as are all of them, that I can't be bothered trying to figure out their histories. And that picnic ! What a depressing debacle that was ! I do concede that the two most famous scenes in the film- the aquarium one and of course the finale, at the amusement park , are indeed fantastic, and deserve the fame they enjoy in the annuls of spectacular cinematic climaxes. But one and a half great scenes in a 90 minute movie are not enough to make me love The Lady from Shanghai.

    Why name it after any actor? Maybe Mickey Mouse would be more appropriate? Isn't Disneyland in Orange County? Maybe just The OC Airport? This is the whole problem of naming things after people.

    BBC is renowned around the world as the epitome of drama. I much prefer the British comedies. There seems to be at all times the juxtaposition of refined, sophisticated and somewhat stuffy people and their life as absolute gits. Blackadder (1983), Yes Minister (1980), Fawlty Towers (1975), Black Books (2000), Coupling (2000), One Foot in the Grave (1990), The Vicar of Dibley (1994), Absolutely Fabulous (1992), Dad's Army (1968), To the Manor Born (1979) and Jeeves and Wooster (1990) should be required viewing for all.

    Amee Vanderpool @girlsreallyrule The ruble stops with Donald Trump...that's what being president means. Claiming he doesn't have intel as a defense to a possible crime means he's not doing his job, which is just another impeachable offense. This is getting so old. 9:28 PM · Jun 27, 2020·Twitter Web App

    Basically ALL the BBC Dickens adaptations from the 90's-00's are watchable, if not only for the fact that Charles Dickens originally wrote his novels as serials, and knew how to deliver a teasing binge-ready cliffhanger. If you want to find the theatrical classic/historical soundstage-bound 70's "Golden age of BBC", the streaming services of Acorn and Britbox (which BBC co-sponsors) is the way to go, and both are paywalled on Amazon: BBCAmerica on cable long since gave into its cult audience of New-Whoovies, and between that and the "Sherlock" fangirls, pretty much gave over all US and UK BBC programming to cater to slick, CGI-indulgent cable sci-fi...Even airing whole blocks of 90's "Star Trek: the Next Generation", and nobody is really sure why. The BBCA exec at the time went on record saying he "hated" the Golden Age, so those who want their BBC Britcoms of Fawlty Towers and Blackadder now have to look elsewhere. I tried to list my old 70's favorites, but the shows I remember being addicted to, like Jeeves & Wooster (1990), Flickers (1980 - now streaming on Prime) and The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes (1971) were all Thames, Granada & ITV. At least I managed to find the BBC Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries (1972-75) on disk at the library.

    I watched the last half of Madchen in Uniform (1931) and found it very powerful, way ahead of its time. I hope it's On Demand, so that I can see the whole thing. Watermelon Woman was enjoyable and very apropos of the current discussions about racial stereotypes. I found the sex a bit more than what I'd expect on TCM, but thought the idea was intriguing and really appreciated the mix of documentary style and fiction.

    My husband and I watched Black Legion together last week. We feel it should be required viewing, even today. You could swap out the Polish and Irish immigrants with Latinos or Asians, and the same movie could be made today. I think it says something very true and frightening about American xenophobia.

    This recalls to my mind that there was an elective introductory course on deviant human sexual behaviour at university. One might expect from the social order of the time that it would likely cover only homosexuality and promiscuity. It went far beyond to the point that the course syllabus had to be especially marked as educational material so that it would not be confiscated as pornography and was for many years one of the best selling items produced by the university print office.

    Some 3-4 hour movies, like The Right Stuff (1983) or The Seven Samurai (1957), you literally never look at your watch for at least two hours of it. And then there are those like Gone With the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia, where the plot sprawls on so long, they work better on disk as half-hour serialized miniseries. (Which, I'm pretty sure, was Cid's point and TB's about disk.)
