  1. Gosh, thanks so much. Both of these movies sound like they could be the one I saw! Now I'll just have to try to see both.
  2. Also, don't forget to pause the movie when you want a particular screen shot!
  3. You noted to me that you still could not capture a frame from a DVD playing in Windows Media Player. I just now put in a DVD. Then when the movie started to play in Windows Media Player, I pressed ALT and Print Screen. Then I went into Microsoft Word and used the Paste command: Voila, the screen shot appeared! By the way, I find Microsoft PowerPoint the best place to crop the shots, but you can also use MIcrosoft Paint or another program. Paint is good at downsizing a photo that might be too large in pixels. (I need to look at this process again to see what you were doing that did not work. Please try to paste the shot, any screen shot in Word to see if it works. Let me know what is happening.)
  4. Thanks for the advice, but in looking at the 39 movies with "struggling writer," nothing fit. The movie was a drama, so it may be the lead actor was not a writer, but I'm not sure what he was. It's that scene in the cafeteria (with his making and eating the ketchup soup) that stands out in my mind.
  5. I think that the lead character took the ketchup and poured it into hot water that he got in the cafeteria. I do recall him eating his newly created "soup". It also might be that he was hoping to get a job in some other state and later in his one-room apartment (?) he finally received a letter that said he got the job. I'm guessing this movie first appeared in the 1940's.
  6. It's better to use Alt with the Print Screen key if you do not have Windows Vista (which has the Snipping tool). That way you save the last open window. You can use Microsoft Paint (on every Windows computer) to reduce the size of the photo: Choose *Image* on the top menu bar, then choose *Resize/Skew*. Try a smaller percentage than the 100% listed for Horizontal and for Vertical. Keep the percent chosen the same for both. The smaller the percent you give for each, the smaller the size.
  7. Years ago I recall seeing a movie with well-known stars in which the lead actor was a struggling writer (I think). He was so down-and-out that *I recall him going to a cafeteria and getting free ketchup to eat there.* (He may have bought a cup of tea or coffee and may have been waiting for someone.) I recall the movie being in black and white. I thought Robert Mitchum was the lead actor and in this film but in looking over his films, nothing fit. I recall a woman trying to help the lead actor and that the ending was happy in that he received a letter saying his manuscript (?) was accepted. Please help. The key to my finding the right title to this movie is the scene in the cafeteria. It's definitely not Holiday Affair and there is a good chance that the lead actor was not Robert Mitchum. I'm hoping someone else recalls seeing this movie and at least can provide further information.
