  1. Wow.... You took yourself a HUGE gulp of that Kool-aid, eh? I suppose the MOON LANDING was staged, too? If PSY-OP was involved at all it was likely at the behest of those right-wing senators and congressmen in order to disrupt the electoral count proceedings, which would be a typical PSY-OP function. And also recall... It WASN'T the "anti-Trumpsters" who were giving the preliminary threats to disrupt those proceedings in the first place. Sepiatone
  2. First off.... "Fulton County, Atlanta" Is where? The STATE of Atlanta? Didn't know that state existed. Oh, so Fulton county is in GEORGIA? And the man's last name was GEORGIA? Well, how serendipitous! And if he was a manager at a North Carolina bank, it'd be reasonable to assume he lived in north Carolina which raises the question.... WHY is a medical examiner from Fulton County GEORGIA the medical examiner in this case? That's quite a mammoth commute for the examiner to make. There's something amiss in this fable. Sepiatone
  3. I noticed that. Perhaps dyslexia is a more common problem than we realized. Whatever... When I saw it all I thought was that in my case, TMC came WAY before TCM. But to the issue at hand.... It seems that TCM spreads out it's tribute to black film history with many small vignettes over the remainder of the year so as to not ruin their insessant and stale "31 Days Of Oscar" feature. And seeing as how the Oscar thing has deteriorated into them showing movies, regardless of how obscure(and generally unheard of) that was nominated in at least one category that the majority of movie go
  4. Man! The equipment used to project that medium onto a big screen must be FANTASTIC, and costly too! Sepiatone
  5. Well, none of us were there at the time, and all I can go by is how WIKI posted it} America's entry into World War II resulted in a deluge of support for the war effort from all sectors of society, and Hollywood was no exception. Wayne was exempted from service due to his age (34 at the time of Pearl Harbor) and family status (classified as 3-A – family deferment). Wayne repeatedly wrote to John Ford saying he wanted to enlist, on one occasion inquiring whether he could get into Ford's military unit.[36] Wayne did not attempt to prevent his reclassification as 1-A (draft eligible), but Re
  6. "Unimpressive" as in the amount of work available for consideration. Unless too, you'd think TCM should also include any of the TV work Ms. Hughes did. In that case we'd have to add BILL KENNEDY, HOWARD McNEAR, ALAN YOUNG and JOHN FORSYTHE as well. And why not? At least it would create a pause in all the frequent showings of the same movies only a week apart from their previous viewing. Sepiatone
  7. There was a difference between Ford filming for propaganda purposes, and Wayne fighting on the front lines. As for Stewart: Stewart became the first major American movie star to enlist in the United States Army to fight in World War II.[110] His family had deep military roots: both of his grandfathers had fought in the Civil War,[111] and his father had served during both the Spanish–American War and World War I.[112] After first being rejected for low weight in November 1940, he successfully enlisted in February 1941.[113][N 1] As an experienced amateur pilot, he reported for induction
  8. Y'know, this reminds me of something a friend of mine brought up. "Words that sound like they should mean something else." But sadly, it was long enough ago I could only recall one example.: (and thanks to the previous posts) "Ignoramus" Meaning someone who is basically ignorant of a lot of things, but could also describe someone who seems to ignore a lot of things.

  9. But, we're discussing CELEBRITIES here, and not MM's family! And it's obviously not taboo in HIS neck of the "backwoods". But as to John Wayne, racist he may have been, but that's certainly no kind of "scandal" worth the bother of covering up, and his not serving in WWII was not due to any "cowardice" but a lot to do with him being in his mid 30's by the time Pearl harbor was attacked. AND his movie studio's efforts to maintain his 4-F status . And what's with this attack on the lack of "realism" in "Father Knows Best" TV series? I thought LEAVE IT TO BEAVER was the "go to"
  10. ??? As Jane WAS a member of the original"Not Ready For Prime Time" players, it really couldn't have been that much of a surprise, eh? But I vaguely recall that PBS series as at the time I thought it disinteresting to watch the daily goings on of some "average" family, just as I thought if it was MY family involved it would be just as disinteresting. The SNL sketch was good, as was ALBERT BROOKS' parody REAL LIFE ('79) with Charles Grodin. But I am sorry for the loud family's loss, and past losses of family members and hope the best for their survivors. And know I don't bl
  11. And that'll just open the door for more threads complaining about frequently shown movies. And too, not EVERY person who had small and bit part "walk-ons" deserves a day dedicated to their mostly small and unimpressive filmography(as Kathleen Hughes). And...... you SURE your meds don't need to be adjusted? Sepiatone
  12. They may have been "eligable"(as in appearing in movies) but the majority of those on the list( andIMHO) weren't good enough to be worthy of oscar nomination. Even the ones that might have been. Sepiatone
  13. A good guess anyway, but I knew many kids in my hometown of LINCOLN PARK, MI. whose Dad's worked for Ford's. Sepiatone
  14. That's always changed with each passing period of my life. From LUNCH WITH SOUPY as a tyke, to CAPTAIN KANGAROO when a bit older, then SHARI LEWIS on a variety of shows she starred on. Prime time by then was when I coveted Western TV series' like LAWMAN, WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE, WAGON TRAIN, THE RIFLEMAN and all those. "Must see" depended on which night it was. As I got older I shifted from comedies to dramas and back and forth twixt the two. In more recent years, it was comedies like MODERN FAMILY and THE MIDDLE. The dramas were any of the LAW AND ORDER franchise shows. Sepiat
  15. Nah. But it was amusing whenever she was visiting because it was the onlytime I'd see my Dad sit uncomfortably silent and work up a sweat trying hard not to say even the mildest of "cuss words" in her presence. But she was a delightful person with a quit wit and sharp sense of humor. And yes... She WAS the principal of a Catholic parochial school in a neighboring city. SAINT ALFONSUS in Dearborn, MI. Which is why I found the old Zappa tune "Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast" particularly amusing. Sepiatone
  16. Tell all that to Darg's neighbor. As for the "saint and Christian" thing..... I once asked my Stepfather's older sister, who WAS a "sister"( as in NUN) how she thought about praying to some of the saints in her church, like SIMON, SIMON/PETER, JOHN, LUKE and MATTHEW, all of whom if you follow the scripture were Jewish and didn't ever think of themselves as "Christians". And being a good natured person, she just smiled and said, "Every time I'm asked a question like that I wish I was given another dime." Sepiatone
  17. Mention "drive-in" to most youth these days and they'll only think of "fast food" or root beer. The now defunct TV comedy THE MIDDLE once did an amusing episode about it. Tried to find a clip but couldn't. Sepiatone
  18. A few of those DID have their days Ari. Sepiatone
  19. Heh.... Most men would also say Ms. Russell was THEIR kind of woman too! But seriously, it is a very good movie. Sepiatone
  20. Not without proper instrumentation, which those involved in the study probably used to arrive at the conclusion. D'OH! Sepiatone
  21. No sh*t Sherlock? WE thought they were in jail for jaywalking! Sepiatone
  22. And notice too, we all also notice YOU have no explanation for the weather anomalies we've had for the last couple of decades. You and the other nay-sayers to science will go on blithely believing that no amount of filth we pour in our water and spew into the atmosphere will have any consequences. Sepiatone
  23. I'm wondering why that neighbor of yours would give that worn out "Christian country" chant before the 2012 election, except maybe he was one of those right-wingnuts who actually believed Barack Obama was Muslim because of his " Hussein" middle name. Just like a lot of other right-wingnuts believe that democrats who often promote and endorse many social programs makes them "socialists". Using their twisted logic, we could argue TRUMP is a "socialist" due to his heavy use of social media. As this is a part of a "classic movie" message board, I began to think Trump saw himself as
  24. Oh, and I'd be surprised if this WASN'T previously posted! Sepiatone
  25. I rest my case. Compare the flow of that "animation" to that of the average Disney, Looney Toon or Terry Toon and you should see it's way outclassed. Sepiatone
