  1. Rhubarb (1951) This is a quite joyful little romp! Gene Lockhart is a crotchety old coot who is awed by the spunk of a stray cat. He adopts him and then leaves his immense fortune and holdings to him. One of these properties is a luckless baseball team. Ray Milland is the press secretary for the team and is made guardian of the cat. A complication is that the girl whom he is trying to marry is very allergic to it. The millionaire's daughter objects to the loss of the inheritance and does all in her power to get rid of the cat. I hesitate to tell of the more amusing
  2. If I may weigh in with my forty-six cents' worth: (that is the original two cents adjusted for inflation) Only whole filets should be fried or grilled. Patties made from shredded or ground fish should only be baked to prevent excessive formation of nitrates. The 'lesser' grades of olive oil are more suited to frying than 'extra virgin' because of the higher acid contents and previous exposure to high heat. The 'extra virgin' is most suitable for use on salads or in spritzes because of its clean taste. It is a common practice when using virgin olive oil as a frying medium t
  3. I am sorry to say that I could not discern the first part of the joke and so I am not sure what it is that I am to ignore. 😉
  4. You seriously do not want to start comparing families during childhood! My life was complicated even before I was born.

  6. Classic Movie Bloopers: Uncensored (2013) This is a wonderful selection of flubbed lines and other boners. Many great stars and many great movies are represented. I found it compelling because 'I knew I knew' who they all are but was unable to place a name or title to an alarming number of them. There are some whom I will have to track down by remembering who their co-star was in a different movie and work backwards from there. It is singular in that there is no narrator nor presenter for the individual clips. It is simply clip after clip after clip after the initial introduct
  7. The majority of my work is telecommunicated. A significant portion of the remainder is my traveling to specific sites. I would be an excellent candidate for such relocation. I have been in Topeka, Kansas. There is not sufficient money in the free world to induce me to live there.
  8. I am beginning to suspect that the contract ended on: January First and no one with the authority to renew it has noticed. That is the only explanation why my thread concerning the Danish animated character has remained. No one has used any bad words but far tamer things have disappeared quite quickly.
  9. Kinetic energy rounds are the hardest to protect against but one A-Bomb per shot seems a bit expensive.
  10. I am inclined to give a movie a much higher rating if it is a bit of fluff. I am one also who watches movies to be entertained. It is commonly accepted that comedy is subjective. What one person finds hilarious will not make some other person smile. The same is very true of drama. I was enticed to watch a movie recently because it was highly rated as an intense drama. I found it to be nothing more than one histrionic jerk shouting in the face of other histrionic jerks. It is rare for me to rate a serious drama highly because it takes only a very little misstep to take me out of the story
  11. I do not know how many scenes they had together but they are both credited in: The Bad Sister (1931) Three on a Match (1932) The Petrified Forest (1936) Marked Woman (1937) Kid Galahad (1937) For Auld Lang Syne (1938) Dark Victory (1939) Thank Your Lucky Stars (1943)
  12. Are you saying that you want to play with yourself? I do not think this is the proper forum to discuss such things.
  13. The Man from Earth (2007) This is the most wonderfully fascinating movie which most people would never consider watching. It is a very simple movie: a 35-year old professor is moving far away. The reason is told huis clos to a diverse group of friends who drop in to see him off. How it affects each one is a complex interplay of social, religious and scientific issues cast in personal context. The discussion lasts through an afternoon. That is all it is: talk, talk and more talk. What draws you in is how you identify with the perspective each person brings. You find you are ask
  14. I am reminded of the soap opera heartthrob who tried to expand his appeal by doing a movie with a nude scene. He lost many fans because of his disappointingly small part.
