  1. Off the top of my head, I've never really cared for: Jerry Lewis (although some of his movies are okay for short time, never cared for his solo stand-up performances) The Three Stooges (too violent, which seems to be their entire schtick sometimes) Don Rickles (never got the whole insult as humor thing) Sarah Silverman

  3. A few of Mae's famous quotes: Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly. Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before. I believe that it's better to be looked over than it is to be overlooked. I only like two kinds of men, domestic and imported. I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure. When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better. You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough

  7. I believe next Sunday, TCM is showing *The Hunchback of Notre Dame* which is probably the 1923 version with Lon Chaney. I know there is a 1911 French version, but does anyone know if a print exists and if so, has it ever been shown on TCM?
  8. I was wondering how many silent film fans, or at least people with an interest in them, are on the board. As you probably know, TCM has their Silent Sundays where they show a silent after the regular broadcast schedule. This past Sunday, July 11th, they showed the Harold Lloyd classic *Speedy* (1928) in prime time as part of their Essential Jr. series and followed it with *Coney Island*, a 30-minute film with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle and Buster Keaton from 1917. Harold Lloyd is one of my favorite stars of all-time and it was nice to see TCM giving him more screen time. I never cared much fo
  9. Not bringing the killer of Elizabeth Short, The Black Dahlia, to justice. To this day, I think the non-resolution of her case was due to police incompetence, corruption and/or pressure from the Hollywood studio execs.
