  1. How about Ezekiel "Easy" Porterhouse Rawlins, the main character in Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) and the creation, of course, of the novelist Walter Mosley?
  2. This news about Olympia Dukakis is so sad. She and the rest of the cast were so wonderful in Moonstruck. I guess I'll always remember her as Mrs. Castorini, Cher's mom.
  3. Television shows: Medium, starring Patricia Arquette Ghost Whisperer, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt
  4. *****Spoiler alert Spoiler alert***** Smoothie is the evil bartender in The Mob (1951)
  5. Take Me out to the Ballgame (1949) Eight Men Out (1988) A League of Their Own (1992)
  6. Treasury Department: Borderline (1950), Charade (1963) FBI: The House on 92nd Street (1945), The Street with No Name (1948)
  7. And I would add The Imitation Game (2014) and The Aftermath (2019) to Keira Knightley's list. I think World War II counts as a period piece these days.
  8. Thanks for posting this clip. George Segal was just so great.
  9. But it sure sounds like George Segal!!! (To be honest, I was more iffy about Segal meeting his wife at a school reunion.😄)
  10. I was thinking of The Quiller Memorandum when I heard the news about George Segal. I also remember him playing his banjo on Johnny Carson with his wife, someone he met at a class reunion, if I recall correctly.
  11. It's not always for good reasons! Key Witness (1947) Somewhere in the Night (1946) Two of a Kind (1951) Where Danger Lives (1950)
  12. Mrs. Popinga knits in The Man Who Watched Trains Go By (1952), starring Claude Rains.
  13. Phantom Lady (1944): Trying to find a hat in a dressing room!
  14. Agreed. I also like the 2008 German film Jerichow, which is updated nicely for issues in the twenty-first century. If you really want noir, the book by James Cain delivers. Ossessione is preceded by a 1939 French adaptation: Le dernier tournant, which I have not seen.
  15. Wow. Even knowing that doesn't stop me from seeing Gene Kelly and Marlene Dietrich!!!
  16. Is that Gene Kelly and Marlene Dietrich in the photo? And what movie is the still from? (This has been bugging me because I thought I had seen all the Gene Kelly films!)
  17. I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932) The Devil Is a Woman (1935) The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) Bury Me Dead (1947) I Walk Alone (1947) Ride the Pink Horse (1947) Call Northside 777 (1948) Walk a Crooked Mile (1948) The Damned Don’t Cry (1950) Don’t Bother to Knock (1952) Walk East on Beacon! (1952) I Confess (1953) The Killer Is Loose (1956) Please Murder Me (1956) Consider All Risks (1960) (Classe tous risques) Shoot the Piano Player (1960) Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965) Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid (1
  18. Sleep, My Love (1948) Try and Get Me! (1950)
  19. I Wake up Screaming (1941) It's a Wonderful Life (1946) He Walked by Night (1948) Wait Until Dark (1967)
  20. Just wondering: wasn't Orson Welles's character a real Nazi in hiding after World War II?
  21. I'm going with the television show VEEP again because Selina Meyer gives a lot of speeches.
  22. The television series VEEP I am almost finished watching all seven seasons, and I wonder sometimes if life is imitating art or art is imitating life!
  23. To this list I would like to add Nicola Walker, who is the lead detective in the British television series Unforgotten.
  24. Lloyd Nolan started the Michael Shayne series of films. Hugh Beaumont finished the Shayne series (although it's hard not to picture him as Mr. Cleaver!). Beaumont and Nolan actually appeared in many noirs.
