I noticed that too, but hey, why ruin a good flick with consistency and logic. Cool movie anyway.

Thanks a > lot, you damn dirty apes..... Ha! Ha! Thanks, bunky. I'm sure that's it. Something funny is going on. I did get some answers to this question when I originally asked it, but they've disappeared (deleted). Hmmm...maybe this should go under 'Mystery'. I looked up Maltin's blurb on World Without End and he actually says it was pretty good sci-fi. Maybe my taste isn't so bad. lol!
  3. Ahhh, yes. Good times, eh Bruce? I had forgotten about the bazooka. I've got to see that movie again sometime soon. Nogahide - lol! Back to the future - as it were.
  4. I'm guessing that the answer to my question, "Will that be soon?" .....is uhm....no. Will a little begging help?
  5. Dear TCM Web, It's still happening - and it is quite annoying. When you said you would check it out, did you mean.......soon?
  6. I just changed from 'tell me when a new post occurs' to 'stop telling me' at my e-mail address - but nothing has changed. I keep getting all the notices anyway. Help! LarryD
  7. Thanks for a lot of good tips on moivies to check out, if I ever get the time. It's always interesting to see what people are recommending. My problem is that I haven't seen very many new movies. I just don't have the time to to go very often. But to add a not-so-recent movie..... I thought that A Few Good Men was excellent entertainment. I was impressed that it told an engaging, even compelling story with out the benefit of action and sexual content. It was, to me, a throwback movie in many ways. It told a good story and developed it's plot, diologue and characters as you went along. The phenomenal scene with Nicholson at the end was one of the finest pieces of acting I have ever seen - and great drama. It is remembered by all who have seen it. But it was only one small part of a movie dealing with a few very interesting themes, and sub plots. Yet the movie was told clearly and simply. Like many old classics it was easy to get, but you were intrigued with the ride it gave you right to that great finish. Thank goodness a movie still comes around, every now and then, that can still do that. The ethereal and sublime Field of Dreams is another remarkable film for similar reasons, though it told a completely different type of tale. If anyone can suggest something that would compare in quality to either of those movies, I'd be interested in seeing it.

  12. I don't remember Old Yeller as a sad movie. Quite the contrary. As an adult, I realized why. It was shot with lots of bright daylight scenes. Those always seem so happy and positive to me. I wondered how cool it would have been to live where they were and with such a cool dog.
  13. I also remember watching old reruns of Topper with Leo G. Carroll in the morning. I loved them. I think it came on after the Sandy Becker Show. Anyone remember the cartoon adventures of Crusader Rabbit (and Ragland T. Tiger)? I think that kids today would still enjoy the Might Mouse Show. Yancy Derringer (with his Indian sidekick - Pahoo) was on late Sat. mornings. I loved that he had a derringer in his hat and another up his sleeve. Slick devil. Don't forget the Paul Winchell Show with Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead Smiff. I always thought his name was Smith. I never thought that Paul W, was very good at ventriloquism, but it didn't really matter. The characters were great. That ventriloquism enthralled me so much that my mother got a genuine (toy) working Jerry Mahoney ventriloquist's dummy. I put on a show with it for my fifth grade class at a talent show we did. I broke everyone up. The class was rolling with my corny jokes that I 'borrowed' from some sophomoric joke books. I still remember a few of them, but I'll spare you the pain. Great memories though. Don't forget Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse, the Dick Tracy cartoons (with Mumbles) and Felix the Cat. I think there was one called the Professor (Or something like that) and a Clown one that came out of the inkwell (name please) As far as movies, I certainly enjoyed being reminded of the Syncopated Alarm Clock. I never knew the name of that song, but it was regular sound in my childhood. The 5 O'Clock Movie, the Million Dollar Movie, The Late Movie - those were all great. My mother explained who Loretta Young was when her show moved to daytime reruns. She played a different role each week. We watched that and The Thin Man series everyday, I believe. Good memories.
