  1. Non New Yorkers may not be aware of some of Rudy's family issues. He announced his separation from his wife Donna Hanover at a press conference -- that's how she found out about it. She was surprised. There were a lot of public recriminations leading up to the divorce. Hanover was given custody of their two children.
  2. What's a prongwad? I googled it, and it led me to a link for Nipkow/TCM!
  3. I think Nip is more like Ayllene Gibbons in The Loved One!
  4. "Corned Beef and Cabbage I Love You" -- Kiss and Make-Up (1934) Next: Favorite Hoagy Carmichael song used in a film
  5. "I've Told Ev'ry Little Star" -- Music in the Air (1934) Next: Song from a black-and-white British kitchen sink movie (or at any rate, from a movie about the working class)
  6. "It's Delightful to Be Married" -- sung by Luise Rainer in The Great Ziegfeld (1936) Next: Song from a movie about hillbillies
  7. Roberta (1935) -- Mr. Scott in another non-western The House of Rothschild (1934) -- more Helen Westley
  8. Connie Gilchrist was in Auntie Mame with Joanna Barnes.
  9. The Boogeyman (1980) Another film with "boogey" in the title (any spelling)
  10. I had a hygiene teacher in Junior High School whose name was Miss Fugarino. It was a boys' class, and touched, in those early days, on what would later become sex education. You can imagine what the boys did with her name. Miss Fugarino got married the following year and took her husband's name.
  11. "Mister Deep Blue Sea" -- sung by Mae West in Klondike Annie (1936) Next: Song mentioning cooking
  12. There is concern, particularly due to his traitorous proclivities and his need for funds, that Trump may try to sell America's diplomatic and military secrets to his foreign friends, particularly in Russia. He may have already been doing that.
  13. On Svengoolie tomorrow, November 28, 2020: Just to spice it up, there is a theory that there is a gay subtext to this film; or at any rate a character who is depicted as stereotypically gay. I don't remember the details well enough to offer an opinion on that.
  14. The Group (1966) Next: Film with a turkey in it, or at any rate an edible bird, but not a chicken
  15. Right you are, Princess. And the late career performance by Roger Livesey in a BBC miniseries, also on Masterpiece Theater, was as the Duke of St. Bungay in The Pallisers. (Which at 26 episodes was actually not so mini. RL was in 18 of them.) Your thread. And happy Thanksgiving!
  16. "U.S. President Donald Trump said that the stock market would "crash" if Joe Biden was elected president." Instead, it soared, now that Trump is on the way out.
  17. Pericles, Prince or Tyre (1984) Impending winds of war
  18. Unusual nominations, like King of the Zombies (1941), which was nominated for Best Musical Score. And deserved its nomination for composer Edward J. Kay.
  19. He was known for his distinctive voice. His famous three-films-in-a-row were made for the same creative team.
  20. The Bride Wore Black (1968) Next: Rear Window (1954) -- more based on work by Cornell Woolrich
  21. "Adeste Fideles" -- Gene Lockhart, Terry Kilburn and others in A Christmas Carol (1938) [Terry Kilburn, who played Tiny Tim, will be 94 on Wednesday.] Next: A wintry song
  22. Die, Monster, Die! (1965) -- more Nick Adams The Dunwich Horror (1970) -- more based on H.P. Lovecraft
