  1. Lantana (2001): Great film starring Anthony LaPaglia Television series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Lots of fun, by the way. Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears: yet-to-be-released film that I am looking forward to seeing!
  2. Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) (Yes, it's a movie, and yes, I saw it in the theater.)
  3. I just saw Key Largo for the first time in its entirety. I always thought I had seen it before, but nope, not from beginning to end. I have a soft spot for Bogie and Bacall together on screen.
  4. Suddenly (1954) The Desperate Hours (1955)
  5. Planet of the Apes (1968) and all its sequels and remakes The original film is actually based on a French novel: La planete des singes (1963) by Pierre Boulle!
  6. The Wizard of Oz (1939) It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
  7. Princess of Tap, I still listen to and enjoy both the Beatles and the Beach Boys. I was thinking of George Wills when I posted (wasn't he critical of George Harrison and the Beatles, but not so much the Beach Boys?). Anyway, that discussion is now a ways back in this thread, but I shall continue enjoying the Beach Boys and just be glad that Dennis Wilson didn't get them all in any deeper!
  8. Not to mention their connection, however brief, to Charles Manson. I have always liked the Beach Boys (and the Beatles), but that doesn't mean any of the bands' members are a good judge of character.
  9. This is not the documentary that will be on PBS. But this is: Chasing the Moon, on American Experience (2019), in early July
  10. Moon (2009) Apollo 13 (1995) Apollo 11 (2019) (documentary that I think is the one that will be presented on PBS later this year, but I'm not completely sure) The Right Stuff (1993)
  11. Wouldn't The Secret Life of Pets 1 and 2 qualify? And I'll go out on a tree limb to be rescued by firefighters and add Catwoman (2004)! While I'm at it, let me add the 1961/1962 cartoon Top Cat.
  12. I can think of two Edmund O'Brien films right away: 711 Ocean Drive (he plays a telephone repairer who sets up a bookie operation by phone) Shield for Murder (he plays a police officer who shoots a bookie at the start of the film, thus unraveling his law enforcement career)
  13. To Sir With Love (1967) Blowup (1966) Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965) A Hard Day's Night (1964)
  14. I wonder about number 3. I'm not sure that James Michael Curley ran a mayoral campaign from jail, but that may be the only "achomlishment" he can't claim. I'm not as confident that it won't happen as Mr. Beschloss seems to be here. [The URL didn't appear, but put "James Michael Curley" into the search box in Wikipedia and you'll see what I mean.]
  15. A Bridge Too Far (1977) I just finished reading Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II, by Robert Matzen, so I feel like I know this story from a civilian's point of view. Great book, by the way, especially if you are curious about Hepburn before her worldwide fame.
  16. The Endless Summer (1966) Gidget (1959) Gidget Goes Hawaiian (1961) Any surfing in Gidget Goes to Rome (1963)? I don't remember any, but maybe Gidget surfed the Mediterranean? Beach Party (1963) and all its sequels
  17. Gene Kelly and Jules Munshin and Frank: Take Me Out to the Ball Game (1949) On the Town (1949)
  18. And then Basehart went in the exact opposite direction for Fourteen Hours (1951). 😀
  19. How about two television shows? Veep Madame Secretary
  20. Something tells me I'm going to hear jokes devoted to this topic on Steven Colbert's show very soon (unless it's happened already and I missed it).
  21. Jane Palmer (played by Lizabeth Scott) in Too Late for Tears (1949) Miriam Deering (played by Olivia Haviland) in Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964)
  22. Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
  23. Moonstruck, right? One of my favorites. Cher has most of the best lines.
  24. What about these "raven-haired beauties"? Dana Andrews Montgomery Clift Glenn Ford Clark Gable John Ireland
  25. And Baby Makes Three (1949) With Six You Get Eggroll (1968)
