  1. I just recently purchased a copy of Electra Glide In Blue and found it to be a pretty entertaining stroll down memory lane. Robert Blake and Mitch Ryan are quite good in their roles as Arizona policemen and the plot line, though dated, still keeps you in interested as the action unfolds. I have always remembered Jeannine Riley from this film, she plays Jolene the owner of the local watering hole, and has a monologue midway through the film that really is quite effective. I have tried to find out anything about her on the web and she has proven to be a real challenge. Originally she was one
  2. I don't know about anyone else but the decision by Time Warner to go Blu Ray on all its videos in future is a crippling blow to my collection.. I cannot and will not replace my collection with all new DVD's just because they can perform this outrage. Hopefully, some manufacturer will come up with a dual player that will play both formats for those folks like me who have a pretty large DVD collection. What do you guys think?
  3. I just recently purchased a DVD collection of Petticoat Junction. It's a fun collection and has some interesting extras which feature some interviews and remembrances by past cast members. However, there is a huge gap when it comes to Jeannine Riley. Not one bit of information on her. Moviegoers may remember her in a film entitled Electra Glide In Blue. Does anyone have any idea what happened to Ms. Riley. I sure would appreciate any info. Thanks Robert M. Lee, Jr.
  4. I like Keanu Reeves well enough but it will take a lot of doing to erase that most memorable performance by the late Michael Rennie. His performance made that film for me and his quiet, forceful manner only drove the point deeper that violence and war are not the way to progress in the universe. Go ahead and make it. They will fall way short of my expectations.
  5. The movie in question is indeed Rocky Mountain and starred Flynn and his third wife Patrice Wymore. It is remarkably gritty and plays well even today with the cynical audiences. Flynn is in superb form and the action sequences are well done. Montana on the other hand is in color and co-stars Alexis Smith. Flynn plays a sheepherder and this produces the usual conflict between cattlemen and herders. Flynn also does some serenading to Ms. Smith and is pretty effective in the singing department. The film is very short, as I remember, and is pretty much matinee material but as is always t
  6. I am so glad that you all have echoed my sentiments about this wonderfully talented lady. I can just look at her and am filled with a warm glow knowing that she will bring laughter and joy into my heart over and over again. She deserves a tribute from Robert Osborne sometime soon. She is really a cinematic jewel and should shine forever. Thank you rainingviolets for your remembrances and appreciations. I didn't realize that her daughter was in Some Like It Hot so when I view my dvd again, I will pay special attention. Thanks for the info! Keep the accolades coming folks, Joan needs
  7. Just thought I would throw one out there and ask if anyone remembers Joan Davis. She was a wonderful comedic actress who graced some interesting films and was in an early television show called I Married Joan with Jim Backus. All of which is available on dvd and still pretty funny. She was a grand practioner of the adroitly delivered line and a master of the double and triple take. I remember her when I was a kid, tells you how old I am, and think of her often. I loved Lucy but there was and still is a special place in my heart for Ms. Davis. God bless her. Throw out your remembrances a
  8. I just received my copy of G.I. Joe directed by Wm Wellman and it has an unbilled performance by Mrs. Wellman as Nurse Murphy. She has three words of dialogue! This film is very touching and is a wonderful tribute to the infantry of WWII. I highly recommend it to all fellow Wellman fans. Hope all of you are enjoying the holidays. Robert M. Lee, Jr.
  9. I don't know why my last response was posted twice, I must have fumbled on the keys. Please excuse my clumsiness. Robert M. Lee,Jr.
  10. I concur with your regarding this wonderful special presentation of Wellman films. He is a most underappreciated director and is a real surprise to filmgoers when they discover the number of memorable films he directed. To further your appreciation for this great man, try and get a copy of his autobiography entitled A Short Time For Insanity. Published in 1974, it is one of the most intriguing, entertaining, and beguiling remembrances ever put on paper. His insights and recollections of many Hollywoodites is fascinating and more than informative. Also, it contains my very favorite romant

  12. The ever mystical Mongo supplied the answer to my question. Mrs. Wellman celebrated her 92nd birthday this past October. By all accounts, she is doing well. For this information, I am grateful and I wish all my fellow movie aficionadoes the best Christmas, Happy Holidays Ever!!!
  13. Thank you so much for this wonderful news! It makes my Christmas season even brighter knowing that Mrs. Wellman is doing well. Merry Christmas Mongo Robert M. Lee, Jr.
  14. I was just curious as to the current status of Dorothy Coonan Wellman. She was featured in the documentary produced by her son, William Wellman, Jr, entitled Wild Bill, Hollywood Maverick, in the 1990's. However, in the recent showcasing of Wellman films, her current status was not given by Robert Osborne or Mr. Wellman. Is Mrs. Wellman still with us? Thank you.
  15. I believe this is a dead end research item. How do I contact the mystical Mongo? Perhaps he can supply some information. Does he view these items or is he a separate entity? Let me know out there if you have any insights as to how the answer may be attained.
