  1. Yea the tonier brand added the "e."
  2. Eagle Eye Dargo thanx for the heads up, I can't believe I screwed up my Prestons they are both probably spinning in their graves, that is unless one of them is not dead yet. What says the Preston expert? BTW I used to put Preston anti freeze in my radiator.
  3. The Macamober Affair (1947) a Film Soleil Noir one of those sun baked, desert or tropical based Noirs. 7/10 This one leaves it up in the air at the end as to the outcome. Joan Bennett and her husband Robert Preston are on safari with guide Gregory Peck in Nairobi. They are in a sort of estranged relationship. Hints of some type of infidelity are implied. Preston hopes the trip will revitalize their marriage. Instead of regaining his manhood he displays his weenie-ness when he throws away his rifle and runs when the lion he wounded charges out of the brush. Back at the camp, Preston takes out his humiliation on the native crew. Its bad form, very bad form. All that is witnessed by Bennett who is turned on to Peck. Eventually Preston shows hes got a pair and is able to shoot an antelope, he also is ready to give Bennett he walking papers. Bennett realizes shes gonna loose her sugar daddy. Preston next shoots a couple of buffalo. One is only wounded and the same scenario with the lion plays out. They have to go in to dispatch it. When the buffalo rears up and charges both Preston and Peck shoot at it along with Bennett but instead of hitting the buffalo she shoots Preston in the back of the head. Was it an accident or deliberate.? Peck fills out a report that it was an accident, but questions Bennett who admits that in her heart she wanted to kill him. The film ends with her walking to the coroners inquiry.

  5. I grew up in Queens, went to a junior high-high school in Manhattan. It was an open campus. If you had classes from say 8 to 10. and then one at 3 PM you could leave the building walk over to Times Square and see what was there to see or go to the Playland Arcade and play some games. Or jump on a subway down to Chinatown for lunch. Spent a lot of time around the 42nd St Times Square Area also. One of my friends father owned King Displays a company that did a lot of the Broadway signage, another owned Kaufman's Surplus, both places still in business BTW. Another friends father ran The Brass Rail restaurant that place is long gone though. I'm part Italian decent , as far as "mook" goes, I too, never heard any of my relatives use it. My father was born in the Apsertides he was a mix of Italian and Croatian. I think mook is a second - third generational bastardization of "mamaluko" which referred to Egyptian Mamluks who were not very good soldiers being quite easily defeated when Napoleon conquered Egypt, and sort of got a reputation of being dumb and ineffectual.

  7. Heard this one today heard it before but got reminded of it again I got a yen for you. The yen in this expression comes from the Chinese yan, meaning “a craving” (probably for opium). The term was first recorded in English in 1906.

  9. Cornered (1945) wrote the below blurb in 2012 Director: Edward Dmytryk, Stars: Dick Powell, Walter Slezak, Micheline Cheirel and too many to count to its detriment. On being demobilized at the end of the war, Canadian flyer Laurence Gerard returns to France to track down who ordered the killing of a group of resistance fighters including his new bride in a convoluted plot that has Buenos Aries as its center point. RKO's back lot is not a very distinctive Buenos Aries, not much atmosphere no dietetic music that would have helped. Still a 7/10. Lets see what Eddie has to say.
  10. For the majority probably not, for "Up State" New Yorkers and the Six Nations of Iroquois maybe yes.
