    Forgetting about Trump's craziness for the moment, he has done so much damage with his policies that we need Democratic control of the three branches of government to begin to reclaim some sense. For example, if Biden wins the presidency and the Senate remains in Republican hands, it would be nearly impossible to get a good candidate confirmed for the Supreme Court. Regarding the AOC paranoia, I don't see it in New York. She won her elections because the demographics have changed in that district, from a working class white neighborhood to a largely black and latino one. It wasn't a rush to the left. Just as Eliot Engel, the multi-term congressman lost, not because of a rush to the left, but because his largely Jewish/Irish/Italian district is now largely black and hispanic. (Engel's district includes Co-op City in the Bronx, a huge area, once largely Jewish, now mostly black. His district also includes Woodlawn Cemetery, where the residents, who include George M. Cohan, presumably don't vote.) I don't see AOC beating Schumer. The rest of NYC, though progressive, is not far left, and the rest of the state, including the suburbs and upstate, would never vote for her.

    Barack Obama @BarackObama This holiday weekend, let’s be safe and smart. It’s going to take all of us to beat this virus. So wear a mask. Wash your hands. And listen to the experts, not the folks trying to divide us. That's the only way we’ll do this—together. Honor America’s Birthday (Safely) in 2020 You may not be able to congregate for parades or fireworks, but there are other options when it comes to having a festive Fourth. nytimes.com 12:00 PM · Jul 3, 2020·Twitter Web App

    I'm gonna do something unique and seemingly unprecedented here...... Post something IN MY OWN WORDS! In answer to concerns that the Mt. Rushmore fireworks display might trigger a wildfire, Trump said, "So, what's gonna burn? It's stone! Right" It's STONE!" But then, nobody voiced concern about the MONUMENT catching fire!

    You've said this before but your position is baffling. Nothing will get done in this scenario. Mitch McConnell has proved that. So you must chose one party or the other if you wish to see any progress in your country. Go forward with the democrats or back to the 17th century with the Republicans.

    LOL Loved the "'Fffraid not" here, rosebette! Nope, actually I didn't really think Larry Storch (who btw is still with us at age 97) had nailed that particular accent there, as I figured he was just doing what many people might think of as your standard French-Canadian (fur trapper) accent. And yeah, that is probably my favorite episode of that old sitcom. And yes again, I did know that Banff(ff-ff ) is located out west in the province of Alberta, as my birth mother with whom I reconnected back in 2007 lived in the Banff and Lake Louise area for a few years back in the 1960s and before she moved back to her hometown of Kelowna BC. I'd occasionally fly up to Kelowna to visit her and until she passed away about a year and a half ago now. (...she was a lovely lady, and I was so glad my wife initiated this reconnection)

    1776 (1972) on TCM 2:30pm EST July 4, 2020 TCM shows 1776 every year... and I always have it on. I really need to see this this year. I've always enjoyed the film because of three primary performers: WILLIAM DANIELS, who is still with us , HOWARD DaSILVA and KEN HOWARD. All the performances are wonderful.

    I've been on a Joel McCrea kick lately. I watched a bunch of movies of his that I owned (The Palm Beach Story, Sullivan's Travels, The More the Merrier). Then, I finally watched my Criterion copy of Foreign Correspondent--a blind buy, from a while back. I'm happy to say that my blind buy turned out to be an excellent purchase. In Foreign Correspondent (1940), McCrea plays Johnny Jones, a crime reporter who is enlisted by his employer, Mr. Powers, to cover the emerging situation in 1939 Europe. Powers is concerned about the amount of power Hitler and the Nazis seem to be gaining. Jones is re-christened "Huntley Haverstock," a pen name that he should use when writing his reports. When Jones arrives in London, his first assignment is to interview Stephen Fisher (Herbert Marshall), the leader of the Universal Peace Party. It seems that Fisher will be holding a luncheon in honor of Van Meer (Albert Basserman), a Dutch diplomat who participated in the drafting of a treaty that Fisher and others are interested in. Jones also meets Fisher's daughter, Carol, played by Laraine Day. When Jones arrives at the luncheon, he discovers that the guest of honor, Van Meer, has bailed and is headed to Amsterdam for a political conference. Powers wires Jones to instruct him to head to Amsterdam and interview Van Meer. When Jones arrives at the building where his political conference will be held, and sees Van Meer walking up to the facility. However, he is assassinated by an unknown assailant before making it inside. Jones commandeers a car to chase the assailant's getaway vehicle. When he gets inside the vehicle, he just happens to meet Carol and Scott ffolliott (George Sanders), another reporter. The three chase the getaway car to a windmill farm. Soon it becomes apparent that all is not what it seems with both Van Meer and Fisher. I loved this movie. McCrea and Sanders were fantastic. I love Sanders' voice. I never realized how much McCrea and Sanders resembled one another. They should have played relatives in a film. I loved Sanders' character's name--ffolliott. The windmill farm and the inside windmill set was amazing. The ending scene on the plane was excellent. This film also reaffirmed how much I love Herbert Marshall and made me want to watch Trouble in Paradise again. --- Paths of Glory (1957). I watched this Kubrick film after multiple recommendations here on the message board. I had recorded it during Kirk Douglas' memorial tribute a few months ago. I loved it. I knew that Douglas was in it, and was advised that Timothy Carey was in it over on the Noir Alley board. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that Ralph Meeker was in it too! Ralph Meeker is a new favorite of mine that I just discovered within the last year or two. I wouldn't have recognized him with the beard, but when he spoke, the voice was instantly recognizable. Timothy Carey still brought his weird quality to the film, but in this movie he didn't speak through clenched teeth like he did in The Killing. Douglas was excellent as he usually is in his films and he brought a stoic quality to his character. I would have never recognized George Macready as the Brigadier General if I hadn't known he was in the film. Adolphe Menjou was also in this film and was good as well. I like how Menjou can play a sophisticated, rich character or a villain without doing anything different with his performance. In this film, Major General Menjou asks his subordinate, Brigadier General Macready to send his division on a suicide mission to take over "the anthill," a well-defended German position. Macready is initially hesitant, but is easily persuaded when Menjou promises him a big promotion. Macready, wanting the promotion, convinces himself that the mission will succeed. The next day, Macready walks the trenches and leaves a detailed plan of the attack with Colonel Douglas, who protests this mission, stating that they'll only lose a large number of men with little reward. That evening, three of the men (including Corporal Ralph Meeker) are sent on a scouting mission. However, one of the men, Lieutenant Wayne Morris (leader of the scouting mission) is drunk sends Meeker and another man ahead. He then gets scared while waiting for them to return, and lobs a grenade and retreats. Unfortunately, the grenade kills one of his own men (the one who isn't Meeker). When confronted about the incident, Morris denies any wrongdoing and even lies to Douglas in his report. The next morning, the attack on the Anthill takes place and as expected, it is a disaster. There are numerous casualties and the remaining members of the division do not even make it to the German side. Some of the men, like Meeker, don't even leave the barracks. Macready and Menjou are furious and go as far as to declare the men, including Douglas, cowards. To deflect blame for the failed mission (and presumably to cover up corruption within the higher ranks), Macready and Menjou decide to court martial the entire division. Douglas manages to convince them to court martial 3 men instead, 1 from each company. 3 men are offered up for tribute. I didn't realize that his movie was so short. I paused it toward the end (not knowing it was the end), and the film just ended. I was like "oh, it's over. I wanted to see what happened next." That's a good sign that I liked the movie.

    (((Harry Enten))) @ForecasterEnten "GOP internal polling signals a Democratic rout." The GOP has released 0 district polls conducted since April. Dems have released 17. Historically, the difference between # of polls put out by each party is HIGHLY correlated with November's result. What's fascinating is that before the coronavirus hit, the GOP was putting out more polling... So the timing lines up very well with the public numbers of when Trump's approval started a mostly unabated decline over the last 3 months. The type of advantage Democrats are having in released internal polling over the past 3 months looks a heck of a lot like 2018... which turned out to be a rout. Republican internal polling signals a Democratic rout Whenever I hear an operative complain about public polling, I have just one thing to say: Put up or shut up. Release your own numbers that show the race in a different place than the public polling,... cnn.com 11:00 AM · Jul 4, 2020·Twitter Web App

    We like Swamp Women and watch it occasionally. Have in one of those crime sets with many movies. Quality is not too good, especially the parts in New Orleans. It is almost a comedy. As with any "swamp" movie, it is always interesting to see how the mosquitoes never bother anybody. Another interesting aspect is how the four women use a knife to cut their jeans down to shorts. All four perfectly matched at the same very short length.

    I have this on DVD after reading favorable impressions like yours. I was puzzled by it, didn't seem to gel for me. This may be the kind of movie another viewing might strike the viewer wholly differently. And I loved Kubrick's THE SHINING. It's a cerebral horror story, very dreamlike, a nightmare. The visual impact is from the sets & actors-no need for gore.

    Many of the greatest plays (made into wonderful movies) were part of the WPA. Same for gorgeous public art mural paintings & sculptures. I live next to a beautiful park with cobblestone stairs, newels & drainage sluices built by out of work masons during the Depression. With so many out of work, seems like a good idea to get people employed.

    Yep, Kubrick liked Carey...for a while anyway. The following excerpt is from Carey's Wiki bio page: During the filming of Paths of Glory, Carey was reportedly disruptive and tried to draw more attention to his character. Due to this behavior, a scene in which Carey and the other actors were served a duck dinner as a final meal before execution took 57 takes to complete. Carey then faked his own kidnapping to generate personal publicity, which prompted Kubrick and producer James B. Harris to fire him. As a result, the film does not depict the three condemned soldiers during the battle scene, and a double was used during a scene in which a priest hears Carey's character's confession. The scene was filmed with the double's back to the camera.[2] (...yep, "Weird"?...you betcha)

    You know, there are some hard-core TCM ARCHIVISTS On these boards, and every now and then someone will post the schedule of The very first week ever of TCM from, what? 1994? And THE LEGEND OF LYLAH CLARE is on it. And I have to question this choice because as a fledgling cable network, I would like to think that you’re wanting to prove to your audience “look there’s a reason for us to be here” and “these are the kind of films we’re going to bring you on a regular basis”. ..and I just don’t think it was right to bring LYLAH out QUITE so early in their run. They *really* should’ve saved it for after they’ve been on the air for a couple of years. It’s like heavy bondage or biting on the first date, it’s gonna leave a bad impression.
