I was watching a documentary about the making of "The Searchers" just the other day, and I was impressed when one of the people who knew Ford well mentioned that all of his accomplishments as a filmmaker didn't mean nearly as much to him as his accomplishments in the U.S. Navy - this man was a real patriot.

  5. This is a fascinating article from the L.A. Times which contains a few interviews with the folks who actually worked inside Area 51. Needless to say, Area 51 has been a subject of much fascination for both conspiracy theorists and fans of sci-fi B movies, so I thought there might be some interest in it: http://www.latimes.com/la-mag-april052009-backstory,0,786384.story The Road to Area 51 After decades of denying the facility's existence, five former insiders speak out by Annie Jacobsen Area 51. It's the most famous military institution in the world that doesn't officially exist.

There is also an interesting 45-minute documentary on the making of the film I've a question about the documentary. Was it made around the time of the movie's release, or is it a recently-made documentary?
  7. Well I'd agree it's probably nowhere near as good a movie as the 1936 version, but I'm sure it is nonetheless a fascinating example of the transition from silents to talkies.

  10. Sounds like a great event! I'm not a huge fan of the movie, but I'm delighted to hear Arlene Dahl is keeping pretty busy lately. Last I heard of her, she was being honored at the Noir City festival, in January. It's great that she's so eager to show up for all her fans. B-)
  11. Do you intend for the discussion to be limited to singers and actors of the "classic" era? Or can we bring up contemporary examples as well?
