  1. The film is The Dark Past with William Holden, Nina Foch and Lee J. Cobb.
  2. The motive for Trump is for the GOP to suffer losses in the House in 2022 when normally the opposition party gains seats. This creates fear and panic among Republican voters thus making them come out strong in 2024 for Trump, the House and Senate, as well all down steam state contests. In other words the GOP shouldn't gain power unless Trump regains power.
  3. Not going to happen since this is just a stale tactic. Bannon's lawyer has already said that Bannon will comply if ordered to be by court. So now we are seeing the first step in that process; The committee filing contempt charges. Bannon's lawyer will then take the charges to a Federal court claiming an Ex-President can involve executive privileges. My prediction is that the Court will not even hear the case since Bannon wasn't working for the White House on January 6th (or after the election was over since Trump fired him long before that). Bannon facing jail time will
  4. The last time I ordered squab was over 3 years ago in France. Don't see it here in So Cal.
  5. Trump also implied that if the 2020 Presidential election is overturned (I.e. Trump isn't declared President), Republicans should not vote in a corrupt system. Hopefully many Trumpers will listen to their master and the Dems will be able to retain control of the House in 2022.
  6. The point I see here is that the Biden Admin is sometimes slow on the draw; I.e. they are not very decisive. Of course this is another crisis (I believe one more of perception than reality because little to no essential goods are facing storages) the Biden Admin inherited from the Trump admin. Cid: Most of us get-that and of course MM doesn't. BUT the Biden Admin has been in power for over 9 months now and the issue with the supply chain were known many months ago. At least the Biden Admin is being proactive now. As for unloading ships: longshore workers are
  7. Cool thread; Funny but at the jazz forum one of the topics is: can one play Jazz on a Les Paul; Well Les Paul did! Here are two of my favorite people\musicians.
  8. You're correct that my reference to Kim Novak was related to Vertigo, but I guess my recall of that scene, as well as what I read about Hitch making her do multiple takes of the jump into the water, were off.
  9. I do appreciate your transparency. I really do, but I just can't agree with you. What you're saying is two-wrongs should be treated as right. Of course those that committed violence during the summer protest should have been prosecuted to the full extent of the law and instead Dems and left-leaning pols didn't have the guts to do that, but that doesn't provide an excuse for a GOP Senator not to vote "yes" for the Trump impeachment to ensure he can't run for office ever again. Your "screw them" comment shows that you have the same moral standing as the Dems\progressive at thi
  10. Even being an atheist I understand that Christmas is about family and getting together to share good feelings. This is especially true given that a lot of that couldn't happen last year do to Covid. So I'm looking forward to do that with my family and loved ones. (but only the vaccinated are invited something my siblings have all agreed upon!) We don't need no stinking gifts to experience what this holiday is truly about.
  11. Hopefully Chris Laundrie and his wife sue all the various parties like Fox, Gabby's parents etc... for libel and defamation. But for Fox to claim someone mowing their lawn (which clearly needs mowing), is a sign of something suspicious or telling,,,, is so out-there. Talk about gutter journalism.
  12. Not sure what you mean by "sided with Mitch on that"; Based on the comments Mitch said he clearly viewed that Trump should have been impeached but said he didn't support it because Trump was no longer President; I.e. that a sitting President shouldn't be impeached from office in their remaining lame-duck days after being defeated in an election. So I believe Mitch felt Trump did commit crimes but didn't impeach him for that reason. As for "we hate each other already": please don't count me in that group since I'm not on either side being a states-right libertarian. Thus
  13. I would only want Trump prosecuted, as an ex-President, if it was necessary to prevent him from re-running for the office of President. (which now appears to be the case). This is why McConnell game play with impeachment was so flawed; He knew Trump deserved to be impeached even after defeat by Biden but didn't because he hoped Trump would just go away. Big misjudgment there Mitch. So now Trump is still leader of the GOP, attacking McConnell and all those that oppose him, even in the slightest, with Trump running again in 2024 and also trying to ensure GOP pols that
  14. The 1941 The Maltese Falcon is known for how much smoking is going on. Jack Warner wanted it reshot to reduce the amount and Huston did redo a few scenes but was convinced by Huston and especially Peter Lorre that the smoking added to the atmosphere of the film. Lorre had some non PC comments related to why a guy like him would be smoking up a storm.
  15. Kim Novak told me something different.
  16. Your reply is also misguided. Little in life is so black and white. Note that today pro-Biden CNN has a article that continuing the Trump imposed tariffs is hurting the supply chain and that Biden should temporarily suspends them (and just end some select ones). Biden doesn't wish to do this since he wishes to appear as tough against China as Trump. The Biden admin could also temporarily suspend some regulatory requirements at the ports and trucker regulations that could reduce the backlog of ships waiting to deliver their goods (which caused that oil spill that occurred i
  17. Some Ron DeSantis polling number: The September The Data for Progress polling finds that 52% of those Floridians asked disapprove of DeSantis’ performance as governor while 45% approve. A Quinnipiac University poll from late August found that 59% of registered Florida voters opposed a DeSantis presidential run. That poll found that 47% approved of DeSantis’ performance overall, with 45% disapproving. Based on these polling number DeSantis disapproval percentage has only decreased 2% (from 47% to 45%), well within any margin of error. Therefore I wouldn't write off D
  18. Lured (1947) is a good film and being from United Artist I'm glad TCM is showing it even if it is a month after Lucy's SOTM month. The film was made in Hollywood but it gives off the vibe as being made in Britain. Casting Boris Karloff is kind of misleading; he is more humorous than scary. I like the chemistry between Sanders and Lucy.
  19. Like I said that is the likely outcome. If someone like Paul Ryan would run against Trump in the GOP Primary would you vote for Ryan over Trump? Note that since CA has open primary elections expect for the President I register with the party I wish to vote in the Presidential primary for. E.g. in 2016 I was registered as a Republican since I wanted to vote for anyone-but-Trump in the GOP primary. Since in 2016 CA's primary was in June, it didn't matter since Trump was the only one left, but CA moved up their primary to March so in 2024 I might do the same thing (not that it wil
  20. Trump has made clear he will run again and has already started to attack other GOP pols like Florida's DeSantis. So there is little to no downside with out of work, GOP pols taking on other duties while they wait in the wings. Their only other option is to join up with the Liz Cheney wing of the GOP and attack Trump as the traitor that he is. But since this tactics isn't like to work and they are generally cowards when it comes to taking on Trump, they just take a backseat. I do believe Liz Cheney will run in the GOP Presidential Primary. Maybe Paul Ryan. But again,
  21. Most of the context NOT related to the specific investigation was redacted but some of the out-there ones from Gruden were so-called mistakenly NOT redacted. I smell a fish here; The NFL knew someone with legal access to the original emails was going to leak these half-a redacted Gurden email (or maybe even the non-redacted ones) to the media. This would look like the NFL was doing a cover-up so they meet with Gruden and the Davis (Raider owner), and they agreed on the plan of action. Note that either way this blew up in the NFL's face: I.e. they are being accused of a cov
  22. Wasn't there a sequel called Brighton Coral?
  23. What should have happened was that most just get seasonal work vista and not full on permanent residency. But I would be OK with granting full-time work visas to a certain percentage of farm labors since anything is preferred over illegal immigration.
  24. I was surprised to see Bondi play such a mother figure in The Very Thought of You. I recall how she was in Remember the Night towards Stawynck and she was a thief about to steal away her son. At first in The Very Thought of You I felt Bondi must be just play-acting; acting that way to try to influence a difficult situation. I keep waiting for the wink or smile to her husband telling me that was the case. But NO, she was just down right mean.
  25. Saw the Sharron Stone film Scissors (1991), which came out right before Basic Instincts (1992), followed by Silver (1993). I have only seen Basic Instincts. I agree with you about Stone's screen persona; she is indeed watchable. Scissors wasn't a very good movie and it appears Silvers is only OK as well. Too bad producers couldn't find the right fit for Stone during the 90s when she had that IT quality I'm looking for in a lead actress.
