  1. I watched most of the film last night and yea, Verdugo was very good. Since the film is only 70 minutes there was too much Svengoolie but at least I did learn that Verdugo was on Marcus Welby M.D. Svengoolie also had a very nice tribute to J. Carroll Naish and his many notable roles as a character actor.
  2. I had never heard of this Sinatra website. As for why the family (mostly Nancy), closed the site down: does anyone know how much traffic the site got? E.g. average number of users per day that log on?
  3. According to the L.A. Times it is illegal for there to be live ammo at a film set. So whoever brought that live ammo on the set could be charged with a crime.
  4. My understanding is the same. With regards to Linder: This was another solid character performance by Steven Geray, who was in a many noirs, always giving a good performance, even if the part wasn't that beefy; E.g. Gilda, The Mask of Dimitrios, Cornered, The Unfaithful, In a Lonely Place, Woman on the Run, and Affair in Trinidad. The best hood in the film was Berry Kroeger; He also has played interesting characters in other noirs like Act of Violence, Gun Crazy, and Chicago Deadline. These two help to elevate what ends up being an overly talkative film that lacked
  5. As you know I'm a big Dodger fan and have been for over 50 years, but I'm predicting Braves in 6. The Dodgers starting arms didn't get the rest they needed due to the wild-card-game, then the series with the Giants going to 5 (while the Braves won in 4), and then the way the games have been scheduled (e.g. all back-to-back unless there is a travel day). Losing Kershaw as the 4th starter at the end of the season really hurt the Dodgers.
  6. So the "they" are the Feds. I agree that Google and other companies shouldn't be able to block websites unless they have a sound legal reason (e.g. the website is showing illegal content like child porn). As for "cleaning up" Google news: Uh, I don't believe you really wish for the Feds to go-there since any clean-up of Google news or any news related website would impact conservative websites more so than liberal ones. I'm sure Trump and TMTG don't wish for additional Fed oversight of their website and thus don't want Google news or any other news based website to have ad
  7. Many of The Reckless Moment scenes were filmed on Balboa Island here in So Cal (Newport Beach). I go to Balboa a few times a year; It was interesting for me to see how Balboa looked back in the late 40s. Fine film and my favorite Joan Bennett noir film, and she was in a lot of fine ones like Scarlet Street, Women in the Window, and The Hollow Triumph, I believe this was also the first of Joan's mother-roles (or at least a mother of late teen \ adult children). The following year, 1950, Joan would star in Father of the Bride and most of her roles were mothe
  8. The Bad Seed; that scene where Rhoda starts a fire and locks Leroy (Henry Jones) in his basement room was very scary.
  9. They????? Who are they? If TMTG, are you saying they should fire all of their employees that work in the Silicon Valley? They (TMTG) can not fire employees of other companies.
  10. I assumed the "eyeroll" was related to "The only actress from pre-1955", and not if Lake was beautiful. I.e. that anyone would think only one actress was beautiful pre-1955.
  11. What does someone really mean when they say "they didn't need to be shot"? I assumed it was a specific and narrow comment related to if the authority that did the shooting was justified in firing their weapon. But now I believe that in most cases my assumption was bogus; I.e. the term "need" in this context is just a very broad and general "feeling". This came up last week in L.A. where a women's boyfriend killed her father at their house and then police came and shot her boyfriend. Standing outside of her home she said "they (police) didn't need to kill him".
  12. I agree with this; of course breaking into the capital with the goal of overturning a national election is a much more serious crime than property damage during a social justice protest. But that being said, those that did commit serious property damage during those social justice protest should still have been prosecuted and forced to pay restitution (if conflicted).
  13. Are we sure it was tobacco? What really gets me is that Chicago Deadline is a noir (which also features Donna Reed in a gritty role), and they show Ladd dressed up like a cowboy.
  14. If one's partner is also "sneaking around" (i.e. an active participant), only an immature person would react towards the 3rd party. The 3rd party isn't at fault. The 3rd party made no claims of loyalty or fidelity. The 3rd party is just doing what comes naturally and therefore isn't a son of a b. I will admit many people disagree with my take here; I assume they do so because it is easier and mentally more convenience to have negative reactions towards a 3rd party than it is, towards someone they love.
  15. Well according to the insurance industry the authorities needed to contain the property damage otherwise the industry will not provide insurance or there will be at assigned-risk level premiums. As for the reaction was harsher on Jan 6th: was it really? I don't think it was per-command by those in charge (and it is still up in the air who really was in charge, if really anyone). Some individual officers may have reacted harsher, but for me such reactions were situational due to those-in-charge not providing leadership.
