  1. That's it! Thank you! I couldn't remember his name for the life of me.
  2. One of my favorites- George Washington Slept Here. They move to the dilapidated house in the country because their lease is up and Rommy (sp) the dog kept ripping the carpet. Love Jack Benny, Ann Sheriden, Hattie McDaniel and Uncle Stanley- (I drew a blank on his name).
  3. Lovely photo. So nice to see them together. Always nice to see the little ones. Precious.
  4. What was the name of the second song, Jake? Sounds vaguely familiar. I've never heard the intro into Ride the Seesaw either and I have that album. I have quite a few of their albums. They were a great band and their music not always understood. First day of spring and we got around 4" of snow. It won't last. Rain tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend.
  5. I love James Mason. Unfortunately I missed this one. I've only seen him in a few movies: The Verdict, The Boys From Brazil, Georgy Girl, Lolita, North by Northwest. He has such a smooth way about him. Any recommendations for movies for me, I would greatly appreciate.
  6. They are so beautiful but it's an even greater pleasure to see them when they are little. So adorable.
  7. I am sorry for your loss. I took care of many Alzheimer patients and it is a difficult and heartbreaking. My Grandmother had it and she didn't recognize me. Her temper was always kind but I saw many with even tempers change so much that their children didn't know how to deal with them. Many become violent. I am sure it is hard for you. I know for me it was bittersweet because I knew my Gram didn't have to be in that state anymore. Best to you Fedya. Take care.
  8. I read at Wikipedia that Robinson had to sell his art collection for a divorce settlement, due to being underemployed, which I just assumed was because of being blacklisted. As you noted he had roles in the 1950's. Was it against the law to be a communist? Or looked down upon? I am asking because I don't know.
  9. I have a soft spot in my heart for Edward G. Robinson. He was so cultured. The man spoke seven languages and I agree that is a big "goof" that he was never nominated. I don't know near as much as the people on these boards about The Golden Age in Hollywood but I did read about the HUAC and what it did to people like Robinson, Garfield, Trumbo. To come through that and still hold onto ones beliefs is incredible. I know this is a comedy angled topic but I saw the last entry about Robinson and wanted to say I agree 100%.
  10. Best wishes to her. I am proud of her for seeking help. No one has walked in her shoes but her. What a lovely lady. Thank you for posting this.
  11. I want to say thank you for posting when a good movie is going to air. I appreciate it very much. I am looking forward to seeing this.
  12. That's thoughtful of you to post this. I hope all goes well for him.
  13. I think there is a middle ground here as james suggested. I am always glad to see abuse stop. I have to say it breaks my heart when I read someone has beaten a baby child to death. Those stories I cannot even read anymore. There definitely are people that should not have children and don't realize this until the child suffers or its too late. I hate to see anything/anyone suffer. I understand that animals provide food/leather etc... I eat meat and I love it. I try to eat more chicken but I love a good steak as well. Unfortunately we all can't live where Dargp lives, so we could sample some o
  14. For me, I would like to see Black Narcissus. I know it's been shown in the past but I think it's a great movie. I love the way the "palace" looks. I would also like to see Song of the South. I have never seen or heard of it. I could make a much longer list.
  15. One of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs! I have so many though, ranging from harder rock ie: Communication Breakdown to softer: Hey, Hey What Can I Do, Thank You. I even like Hot Dog. My all time, if I had to pick one is Misty Mountain Hop. There isn't much I don't like by them. I love classic movies but I think I love music more. To some people its just background noise.
  16. Great picture, Kid. I like the movie. I guess I can understand that people weren't ready for it back then. I've often wondered where he found the elongated head people.
  17. I just wanted to say I love the pictures, especially with the stories. Thank you very much. I learn things I didn't know and see pictures I've never seen.
  18. Saw the first flock of geese go North. I love to see them although they seemed a little lost. They were in a V but somehow got messed up. It's 57 today. Snow almost gone. Can't wait until our forsythia's bloom and the wild cherry trees. I saw 3 praying mantis cocoons. 2 weeks until it's officially Spring.
  19. And I was thinking the anagrord in the middle looked like Bryan Cranston.
  20. I have the album Toulouse Street. I still play my records, although they are hard to find anymore, or people want an arm and a leg for them. Whenever I hear The Doobie Brothers I think of the movie Romancing the Stone when Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner are in the crashed plane and he finds an old Rolling Stone magazine and says "The Doobie Brothers broke up! When did that happen?" Oh, Capt'n Beefheart's song Hardworking Man was featured in the beginning of the movie A Civil Action. I guess it's more of a blues/avant-guarde. He worked with Frank Zappa sometimes.
  21. I had to look Wishbone Ash up. The song was vaguely familiar. They reminded me slightly of some of Uriah Heep songs. Melody Maker magazine said they were the most interesting guitarists since The Yardbirds -Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. Thanks for introducing me to these bands because I was impressed with myself because I knew who Captain Beefheart was. Well only Hardworking Man. Have a great weekend. It's going to rain here but at least it's not snow. If you go fishing-good luck!
  22. Incredible story. Just the baby's survival is amazing. The car being overturned for so long, so the water didn't reach the baby. I feel sorry the baby doesn't have a Mother now. I'm with GayDivorcee- it gives me goosebumps too and tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing this Fred.
  23. I didn't know this. Thank you for posting. I like many of their songs: Never Been to Spain, Out in the Country, Shambala and of course, Joy to the World. They were a great band. I was just listening to them on my mp3 this morning. Thanks, Kid.
  24. A very touching story about the elephant. There are some people that think animals don't feel/have emotions. When I was 15 I got my first horse. She was in foal and when the little colt arrived my mom wouldn't let me keep him. We didn't have enough money or room for a second horse. After the new owner picked up the colt and left was so hard for me, but heartbreaking for his mother. She ran back and forth in the pasture looking for her baby. She had the loudest, most shrill whinny I ever heard. She looked frantic. This went on all night. She just wanted her baby back. I know this wasn't about
  25. Thank you very much for the suggestions. I do want to see Papa's Delicate Condition. I became a huge Ralph Richardson fan after seeing The Fallen Idol on TCM, and my son just got me A Long Days Journey into Night. I loved it and everyone in it. I am hoping to see more of Richardson's movies. Thanks, again.
