  1. That's right! Jesus was a carpenter. This gets deeper all the time. Bill
  2. Now Gort the robot (and please stay with me on this one) is the Holy Spirit. I was taught to believe that the Holy Spirit is nothing more than the manifestation of God's power primarily there as a helper when things got tough. Bill
  3. Ok! I see it a little different than you do on the latter point. Bill
  4. Professor Barnhardt (Sam Jaffe) and the other members of the scientific community are the Apostles, I suppose. Their job is go forth and preach the Good Word. Bill
  5. Yes! I've heard the correlation mentioned before. Judas Iscariot would no doubt be Patricia Neal's boyfriend in the movie who turns Klatu in near the end. Right? Bill
  6. I'll probably see it when it's released on DVD, however nothing in my mind will be as good as the original. Special effects will be better of course, but not the plot or the message. The message I'm afraid will get lost in all the hoopla. Bill
  7. I saw somewhere (or possibly read) that sometime in 2008 the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) will be out in theaters. Now, my question is this: In today's world state of affairs, would Klatu's message to the people of Earth be as relevant as in the original version? And secondly, what response from the nations of the Earth do you think would be given? Frankly I think we'd be reduced to a "Burned out cinder" ( as Klatu would put it) right off the bat. Especially with what's going on around the world today. Let me know what you think. Bill

  9. Katharine Hepburn's exit was (to say the least) strange. Perhaps after years of being looked upon as a star, egos tend to get larger. Maybe it's a human factor will all have within ourselves yet never get a chance to experience being just the common folk we are. Bill
  10. I went to a Drive-In only once in my youth and saw The Devil's Rain (1975) (with William Shatner & Ernest Borgnine) and Don't Look In The Basement (1973) (also known as: The Forgotten). For some reason I just couldn't get into the whole Drive-In thing. Perhaps I was just in tune to going to the theater. Could never really put my finger on it. Bill
  11. That's an excellent suggestion. TCM would be the perfect venue for that type of movie format. Bill
  12. When I got my first DVD I couldn't waite to get rid of my VHS tapes. My neighbors and friends got all my old collection of movies. Most I found were just taking up space anyway. Some of my favorites I now have on DVD. If you shop online at sites like DVD Empire (and others), their relatively cheap to acquire again. If it's on DVD this site will have it.

  13. An unknown for the Nat "King" Cole roll would be my likely choice. As for Sam Cooke, I really didn't give it much thought, as I know very little about his life, only his tragic death. Bill
  14. Point well taken. Of course the singing parts would be dubbed in. There's no one who could recreate Nat "King" Cole's perfect pitch and harmony. Bill
  15. Nat "King" Cole didn't exactly have a pretty face. I don't know about that one. Bill
