  1. This IS good news. Glad to hear it! So, kind'a like the opposite of Generalissimo Francisco Franco here then, eh?! (...you have to be a fan of the first few years of SNL to get this one, ya know)
  2. LOL So, you can "neither confirm nor deny" this, eh?! Saaaay, you wouldn't happen to be Miss Rush's press secretary here or somethin', now would YA?! (...'cause that sounds JUST like what some press secretary would say, ya know) LOL
  3. Yes, by all means let us wish the lovely Barbara Rush, a lady who always seemed to me to grow more attractive as she aged, a wonderful 90th Birthday here. Although, I gotta say here Aritosthenes, I do not believe the beautiful and quite sultry brunette you posted a pic of here is actually Miss Rush. Nope, and because Miss Rush had a softer look with fuller more rounded cheeks than this lady has. See what I mean?... (...betcha your search for a pic of Miss Rush was another case on someone uploading a pic into the Internet and mislabeling it...this happens all the time, ya know)
  4. Yeah, and there's a couple of other performances of Basehart's which are quite good too, Princess. In fact and as you might know, his work in Repeat Performance was his very first screen credit. (...and yep as you note, I'll bet the primary reason he took the role on the Irwin Allen show was for the paycheck)
  5. Oh, I dunno. I'd also fault Irwin Allen and this TV show for basically become as big a joke after its first fairly good season and where it just became a case of each new episiode being the adventures of Admiral Nelson and his crew of the Seaview battling some different "monster/alien of the week", and something of which even as kid who was a regular viewer of this program recognized this show's waning quality during its initial run. (...and speaking of "Admiral Nelson" here...I've always wondered if such a talented actor as Richard Basehart might have been bit embarrased about wasting hi
  6. After doing a search for it, I found that old offering of mine in the 20th Century Vole thread here, midwesty. Good suggestion here regarding Miss Kerr, but it appears I only mentioned two other actressess known for playing nuns in movies, and as you can see below... --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The year, 1943, and Hitler's Fortress Europe is holding fast to its invaded territories. In the
  7. You mean you'd two-time on MARTHA???!!! (...man, you're as fickle as I am, dude!)
  8. Btw, MY favorite animated short of all time isn't WO,D?, although it does rank highly with me. Nope, MY favorite animated short of all time is another Chuck Jones directed funny-as-all-hell little piece starring that crazy rabbit...Ali Baba Bunny. (...just can never get enough of "Open Saskatchewan?", "Here we are, Pismo Beach, and all the clams you can eat!" AND the ever-popular"HASSAN, CHOP!", among many other hilarious lines in this one)
  9. Wow! I can NOT believe the animated short What's Opera, Doc? which almost all lists of the greatest animated shorts of all time has sitting in the Number-1 position, wasn't even nominated in 1957???!!! And here I had thought this was the one that garnered the great Chuck Jones his first Oscar win. (...guess it's kind'a like how THE greatest musical ever made, Singin' in the Rain, wasn't even nominated for Best Picture its year, eh?!...damn Academy!)
  10. HEY, and btw AGAIN...the above has me wondering whatever became of that old "20th Century Vole" thread??? Gotta say MY most proud entry in that thing was coicidentally ALSO a riff on a WWII flick. (...you may remember it...it was titled "The Nuns of Navarone")
  11. Btw Rich, have you ever watched that Jeffrey Hunter and David Janssen WWII flick titled From Hell With Eternity It Came ? Uh-huh, Jeffrey Hunter plays a guy who was raised by Tabongas in Southern California, but is sent overseas to fight 'em after hostilites commenced, and which in turn of course causes poor Jeff to engage in much soul-searching while in combat. And Janssen, in a precursor to his most famous role, goes on the lam after encountering his first Tabonga, which coincidentally kind'a sort'a looks like Barry Morse. (...well, once again IF ya squint real good, anyway)
  12. LOL Yeah, and especially because some of those trees on the island of Oahu look like a Tabonga. (...'specially if ya squint real good)
  13. You're quite welcome, lav. (...glad to hear you're enjoying the program)
  14. Wait! Didn't TCM show From Here To Eternity on Dec. 7th this year? I know they showed it very recently anyway, because I watched it for the umpteenth time. (...and while I was, ahem, "awoke" one night)
  15. LOL Yeah, at last count I believe Harrison has now had two FAA/CAB crash investigations done on him, eh James?
  16. Yeah, well, what I wanna know why it is none of those Salvation Army women I see out there ever look like THIS cutie here from Guys and Dolls???... (...answer me THAT!)
  17. Uh-huh, and just like this overreaching attempt at humor of yours here bombed, eh MM?! (...but hey, at least you knew you'd get the Nipster to laugh at it, and even though as I'm sure even YOU know, he's much too easy an audience)
  18. AND one MORE thing here... I've come to conclusion after witnessing Fat Boy Donny's attempts to INVALIDATE this election's results and ALL under the FALSE guise of saying it was "fraudulent", and NOW after all these Republican state AG's climbing on board his little circus train AND despite THEIR fraudulent claims in doing THIS that they're attempting to "save this Democracy", that it'll be a COLD DAY IN HELL when ANY of 'em will have the GUTS to publically ADMIT that their TRUE and UNDERLYING reason for all this IS because they REALLY don't want the American people, and ESPECIALLY those
  19. So, what exactly HAVE "the Dems done in CA" anyway, James? Heck, you've always seemed to me to be a guy who hates "party politics", and so with CA having no separate political party primary elections, how does this not make it a heck of lot easier for people who proudly boast that "they vote for the candidate and regardless their party" to actually DO that? And besides, if you ask ME, there's nothing at ALL either "insidious" or "fraudulent" about this sort of balloting and REGARDLESS what MM thinks about it OR attempts to state about it from his obviously biased POV! (...AND be
  20. Well ya know Cid, James here wouldn't care if Martha gave "a good performace" in that flick or NOT! (...right JAMES?!)
  21. And as I understand it, also the holiday greeting of choice on E.T.'s planet.
  22. Bet you wish you were Danny boy here, don't ya James. (...btw, I just noticed after reading her Wiki profile just now that she was only 5'3''...funny, but I always thought she was a lot taller)
  23. LOL Well, kind'a sort'a anyway, Sepia. However of course, my actual point was that jobs such as those as TSA airport screeners are monotonous, repetitive and thankless. (...and unfortunately thankless in particular, as much of the traveling public resents having to go through this process, and even though in today's world it's extremely necessary)
  24. Not a bad guess here Tex, but nope, like I said earlier, I've noticed this AND have actually commented upon this sort'a thing to others for many years now. (...and has always brought to mind Thoreau's "quiet desperation" line)
  25. Wait! Lemme try a line from one of Carlin's earliest and greatest routines here, James. "You CAN say 'prick your finger', but you CAN'T say 'finger your prick'!" (...okay, let's see what happens now!) LOL
