  1. Love any film with the inimitable Dick Miller. What a great movie poster also! Thanks, Janet.
  2. Didn't Letterman go to Ball State? I have a feeling he would not mind his alma mater being called "Ball University" being that he is such a cut-up. Personally I would rather say I went to Ball University than Ball State, which sounds like all of Indiana looks like a ball but then that's me. But you are certainly right that this is a major snafu to leave out a word in a university name, because how awful would it be to call Notre Dame, just Dame College or Wake Forest, just Wake University...agreed? And calling NYU just New University should be a crime punishable by death on the gallow
  3. My favorite actor in that film is Bronson! I've liked him since he was Igor in HOW. Thankfully, Jay Sebring was not doing his hairdo in that film, as he was for some of the other male stars.
  4. Tell me about it, Sarge. There will always be men who think that they can force a woman to like them and won't accept no for an answer. I think it goes back to some maternal issue, where they either got too much or no attention from that female, so all later women they meet have to give them unending approval and agreement on all things, and are not allowed to ignore or reject them. Such a man will torture or kill his intended paramour, if she refuses to give it to him. I know these signs and always try to stay away from such stalker types. I once had a co-worker who kept asking me out a
  5. Now this film I have seen and totally enjoy since any film promoting a non-procreation discipline in society is great in my book. I do think it is seen best though when one turns the sound off, like when watching TWOO while playing Pink Floyd's music. I suggest that one turn off the sound to "Zardoz" and take a couple of Sandoz tablets and they will have a super wild experience, especially if they have strobe lights above their big screen to illuminate all the scenes with Sean Connery. Thanks, Darg!
  6. I have never seen this but now I want to, so thanks, N&N!
  7. Oh, my, my...we certainly don't want this general malaise that is overtaking you to end up like what overcame George Sanders, Sarge! His goodbye to a cruel world went something like this, or actually exactly like this: "Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck." Might I suggest an infusion of some fine Lubitsch or Sturges comedies to raise your endorphin levels as we would not want to lose such a witty and acerbic poster from our milieu. Or try a dose of some W.C. Fields fare like
  8. Though it is actually not really a 'bad movie" as how can any Olsen Twins film be classified as such, my favorite movie redemption scene for any failings in the film is in "New York Minute" from 2004. In it we find at the ending that one of the Olsen twins has been given a college scholarship to Oxford because of her totally ethical behaviour that is mentioned saying that she "didn't just want to win, she absolutely refused to fail." How laudable is that!!! In view of the current college entrance cheating allegations, I think this ending makes the Olsen Twin movie a must see, plus it also
  9. Play this song by Roger Miller, when the hangman enters the schoolyard, Sarge, and please take photos!: "Dang me, dang meThey oughta take a rope and hang meHigh from the highest treeWoman, would you weep for me?"
  10. when the legend becomes fact. This is a line often misquoted, often attributed to not who wrote it, but who directed the film it was in, and often misinterpreted. According to sources it was actually written by the writers who did the screenplay, Bellah and Goldbeck for the movie and isn't even in the book by Dorothy M. Johnson. Last night I saw a show about the man known as Brushy Bill, who contended that he was the outlaw, Billy the Kid. He had many supporters in his old age, and all were adamant about his tale of outlaw origins, based mostly on believing anything he said. It would hav
  11. This is for those who love really worthless information about movies, that most find boring but they personally find stimulating and fun to know. Yesterday, I was watching some films on TCM with early acting roles by the Oomph Girl and noticed in the pre-film credits for "The Patient in Room 18", in the cast was the name, Vicki Lester! Now I was baffled, since I'm thinking, who is this Vicki Lester and was she the hidden girlfriend of Norman Maine or what gives? She played a nurse and I later looked her up to find that the actress had taken on the name of Vicki [sometimes billed also
  12. I will watch anything with Donald Pleasance in it. For me, he made the movie "Halloween" work, plus is always amazing in any film or tv show. There is a fine write-up about him in that TTZ Companion book, about his being hired for the episode, "The Changing of the Guard" where he plays a kindly professor. The episode reminds me a bit of the film "The Browning Version" without all the wifely adultery issues and such, but it has a similar melancholy tone. Thanks, Bogie!
  13. Why...I never thought Pongy Ponce acted "puffed-up" in his role on "Hawaiian Eye" and I'm sure Connie Stevens never thought so either, Sarge. Oh, wait...that was Poncie Ponce, wasn't it? Never mind...
  14. Oh, I adore Robert Morley! I still remember seeing him in I think some BBC prank, in which he espoused the belief that balls were the bane of society and the movement was called "Ban the Ball" and cameras would follow Morley all around playgrounds in Britain and he would walk up to small children playing games with varied types of sporting balls, and would put his hands out, point to the ball and ask them quite solemnly to "Surrender the ball!" The children's incredulous expressions as they sadly and wistfully handed over their beloved balls was so entertaining. Thanks, Sarge!
  15. Yes, we all know he has a most lovely wife. But even if Dargo were single I know he would never be interested in me, being that I look a lot like Una O'Connor and am not really that appealing to the male gender Thanks though, Michael for warning me just in case.
  16. No, this is not about your meeting up with Lou Reed at a film fest. Name a movie that took you to places beyond your wildest dreams, depending on what the criteria is that you use for defining the word "wild". Remember, it does not have to be triple X-rated but it's okay if it is. For some viewers, "The Wizard of Oz" could qualify, or "Fritz the Cat", or "Fantasia" or "In the Realm of the Senses" or even "The Angry Red Planet". I'll start with Walerian Borwczyk's "The Beast" from 1975. Next?
  17. Basically, Markoff I agree with your sentiments. But I can tell you for sure, no amount of largesse would make me even date some of the men one sees around with good looking women as mates. Larry King, for example, I would not even accept a freebie coffee drink from and I also wouldn't even want to be in nearby breathing space of certain men who have achieved high political offices, nor do I find them attractive due to their fame, if attractive only means in their wallet. There will always be those females, who can be had for the price of an emerald ring, but some would prefer to buy the
  18. Good point and sound position. Waiting to see if there is another side with strong beliefs on this topic. Thanks!
  19. You know what I like about you, Dargo? You have the ability to be courteous and innately polite when you see a possible slight error in anyone's post, which you do not do in a condescending or know-it-all way. I could only wish that all people in the world had such understanding of what etiquette really means. I remember seeing Dina Merrill once on a show talking about etiquette and she said true etiquette is not to make people uncomfortable and call them up on their table manners or whatever, as that actually constitutes bad manners. If one sees someone drinking out of the finger bowl, oft
  20. Finally, a man who believes that my "instructions" are to be strictly followed, who is also one of the handsomest men in the movies, Michael Rennie! My dream has come true. Thanks, MR for always following my "instructions" to the letter, and you are right when you say I was not that "specific" so feel free to extrapolate on any of my topics. Only you though, no other posters have that right!!!
  21. That old adage about not discussing religion or politics at a party, is raising its ugly head again, ain't it,Bogie? I see my poor insufferable blowhard thread, being cast off into the no man's land of the off-topic chat area, piece by piece as I watch helplessly.
  22. Dargo, being that you are the most urbane gent hereabouts, with an engaging wit and charm to spare, I think only you could say to the James Bond role..."I Can Play That". And this is not just specious flattery! But you can put me in the will... So glad someone else saw the skit, by the way, and I so agree, it was one of the funnier and more biting ones they've done recently. Thank you!
  23. Attention! Note to all...though I agree wholeheartedly with Firkle, I am not Firkle, just because I agree with him about Muller. One can actually agree with a poster here and yet still not be that poster, as unbelievable as that sounds. I am also not related in any way to members of the Farkle family from "Laugh-In", if anyone wondered. If you see me liking more posts by Firkle, save yourself some worry or paying off detective agencies to do background searches on either of us, by assuming I am also him/her just due to our similar thought patterns. Thanks for listening.
  24. Stop...I just spit my Coke out!!! The legal kind by the way. Now let's all be nice to the leader of our nation, so we won't get on his naughty list, since Cohen is no longer there to torment anyone.
