  2. I was just rereading Mr. Morrow's bio on imdb and didn't realize that

    the man who was his first director on "Combat" (Boris Sagal) died within

    the same year as Morrow in almost the same way. Uncanny.


    I feel he had such power in the roles he played. Oft times when people

    are typecast in the movies as well as in real life, as his IMDB bio indicates,

    and forced to replay some of the same scenarios, we lose touch with the idea that there are so many avenues of change we can enact ourselves.


    I feel that he might have made a great character on M*A*S*H*

    or evinced a Marvinesque take on The Thin Red Line.

  4. I find the whole topic intriguing. Didn't mean to imply Cardiff was my only

    concern as far as great cinematographers are concerned.


    I just hope that I can view it some day. I'm even more intrigued about it now

    than before your post with the Variety review.


    I enjoy a wide range of films, actors, actresses, and cinematographers,

    and I enjoy reading about all these different points of view concerning film.

    Thanks for locating the info.

  5. Great insight, mythoughts and twister!

    Great shots, danthemoviefan!


    I hope that we keep on remembering Vic Morrow as a solid performer in his own right, and that a horrifying event like TZ never recurs just to secure the

    film in the can at the expense of well-rehearsed "special effects," cost overruns,

    and illegal labor practices.

  6. Immigrant children such as Renee Chen and My-ca Dinh are still being exploited.


    What also receives little media attention is that the pregnancy rate of 14 and 15-year-old female immigrants in this country is staggering, yet there is a great reluctance on the part of schools and parents to charge anyone with statutory rape. Exploiting children is sad in any decade.


    I'm glad someone remembered the names of Renee Chen and My-ca Dinh,

    and I'm glad there is a thread devoted to Vic Morrow.


    Landis' cheerful demeanor in court still haunts and hurts.

  7. I'll never forget when I saw Pepe in the theatre for the first time!


    We had just come back from a car trip to Mexico, and had stayed at

    a hotel where someone had just met him because he had stayed at the

    hotel or one nearby.


    Cantinflas was popular here and a megastar in Mexico at the time.

  8. Bama peanut butter and Bama jellies were sold in pre-Walmart era

    stores call Fed-Marts in the sixties. They were yummy!


    Fed-Marts were small bulk-in-bargain type stores, and the most

    popular "preserves" were the peach and strawberry variety,

    according to my vast, internal landscape of memory.
