  1. 50 years ago this month, after Peter Green had left the band, the remaining members of Fleetwood Mac moved into this home in Alton and recorded the album Kiln House, with cover art by the bassists's wife and future band member Christine Perfect McVie.
  2. Can't believe nobody has beaten me to this one, though the film has been mentioned here. He's the character everyone talks about but is only on screen once. And memorably. Edit: woops!

  9. "and introducing clint eastwood" - that put me away
  10. this post got me curious so i asked sven if he is still in production. he replied, "We are still in production- when Universal assigns us a movie we've already shown, there are older segments and updated ones."
  11. Svengoolie is able to broadcast the films he does because WCIU, the station that produces his show, obtained broadcast rights to Universal-International titles as well as the Hammer titles distributed by them.
  12. good lord what a day. im gonna banish myself for a while. i have no idea where we are.
  13. this actor worked as a lifeguard and a radio announcer before getting into the movies. in a pair of films directed by a future tv talk show director, he acted with a chimp. he would meet his future wife when they costarred in a naval drama. later he would leave film acting to become a spokesman for general electric. then he did other stuff that made him world famous.
  14. diana dors. and my apologies for going out of turn. i'll read more carefully next time.
