  1. Open mic night begins now: I think Ford was looking for a better idea. LOL
  2. I think I heard John say, "Paul, you really need to hit this doobie."
  3. >I suppose that Lucy and Desi broke a taboo barrier at the movies at the time regarding miscegenation Old beliefs can be very difficult to break. In the present day, the word miscegenation is avoided by many scholars, because the term suggests a concrete biological phenomenon, rather than a categorization imposed on certain relationships. The term's historical use in contexts that typically implied disapproval is also a reason why more unambiguously neutral terms such as interracial, inter ethnic or cross-cultural are more common in contemporary usage.The term remains in use
  4. The Census Bureau defines "Hispanic or Latino" as "a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_ethnicity_in_the_United_States_Census
  5. >I think Top Billed made a very valid observation. After all, Desi was Hispanic. Hispanic is not a race. The 1990 census questions on race and Hispanic origin were changed for Census 2000. The Federal government considers race and Hispanic origin to be two separate and distinct concepts. Ergo, Desi Arnaz was a white Hispanic contrary to previously held beliefs. http://nationalatlas.gov/articles/people/a_race.html
  6. >THE LONG, LONG TRAILER is a film where two from different races have married and go off on their honeymoon. Aren't you confusing race and ethnicity? What race would you characterize Desi Arnaz as?
  7. Dearest C.G,. you are getting The Lady from Shanghai mixed up with another Rita film, Gilda It is George MacReady who plays the despotic husband to Rita in that film. But he does meet the same fate as the late, lamented Arthur Bannister does in Shanghai.
  8. The Trouble with Harry is Charlie. Charles Townshend of the Townshend Dectective Agency. lol
  9. The TCM programming elves should consider running a few Traveltalks which haven't seen the light of day nigh on several years. Glimpses of Austria (1938) last aired in 2009 Cradle of a Nation (1947) last aired Fourth of July 2008. Glimpses of Mexico (1940) last aired 2009
  10. There are many Stars from Canada, especially Stars from back in the day, like James Mason Actually, James Mason was born in Yorkshire, England.
  11. I'm still hoping the TCM elves will dig deep in to their black bag and pull out these never aired, as far as I can tell, titles. Holland in Tulip Time (1934) Colorful Guatemala (1935) Historic Mexico City (1935) St. Helena and its Man of Destiny (1936) Chile, Land of Charm (1936) Jaipur, the Pink City (1938) Sitka and Juneau, A Tale of Two Cities (1940) Suva: 'Pride of Fiji" (1940) Alluring Alaska (1941) Land of the Quintuplets (1942) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0280534/filmoyear
  12. Thank you for your sharing your opinion on Cagney, crazyblonde7. But I'm not alone in thinking Bogie was the cat's meow. After all, Lauren Bacall thought he was the greatest.
  13. *The two factors reinforced each other to push him higher than either factor would have done alone.* I believe the two factors most responsible for Bogart's iconic status were Max and Frank Factor.
  14. I must say that in the Minneapolis neighborhood in which I grew up, Bogie was the cat's meow. Cagney was just anotha mug.
