  1. Glad to see you back and glad to hear that you are on the mend.
  2. I kind of feel awkward at the moment, these last few weeks, because I have really been plunging myself into the world of TV shows in a way that I've not been prone to before, with heedless abandon. And I don't know, I've usually a big movie person, and yet I've been giving movies short shrift these last few weeks. And since early July, I have seen episodes of the following shows for the first time: Dynasty, Family Ties, That Girl, Perry Mason (the Raymond Burr one), Alice, thirtysomething, Taxi, Three's Company, Barney Miller, The Practice, The Streets of San Francisco, and Sisters.
  3. And its streaming in full on Hulu if you want to revisit it.
  4. So I take it that if you had been a writer for the show, you would have killed him up in either the Moldavian Massacre or the El Mirage fire.
  5. The only two things I can guess is maybe they felt Wayne had been featured a lot with the John Ford tribute this month, or because of the controversy surrounding the John Wayne airport.
  6. John Wayne also got canned this year, replaced by Natalie Wood.
  7. Squeaky tried to kill Ford on September 5, 1975 in Sacramento. Sara Jane Moore then tried to make a hit on him in San Francisco on September 22, 1975. The mark of Moore's bullets is still in the stone facade of the St Francis Hotel to this day.
  8. Gerald Ford must have had some sort of complex after two women tried to kill him within a month.

Jaime Foxx in Collateral (2004) -- 64 minutes, 13 seconds Brad Pitt's screentime in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is 55 minutes, 12 seconds, making his performance the 13th longest winning performance in the history of the supporting categories , behind the five in bold above, plus in order: Haing S Ngor/The killing Fields (1984), Jack Albertson/The Subject Was Roses (1968), Christopher Walken/The Deer Hunter (1978), Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl (2015), Peter Ustinov in Topkapi (1964), Walter Matthau in The Fortune Cookie (1966), and, surprisingly, Shelley Winters in The Diary of Anne Frank (1959) who beats Pitt's screentime by 2 seconds.
  11. The person who plays Manson has less than two minutes of screentime in a 161 minute film. His followers are seen more often than he is.
  12. I saw 37 films from last year, and there are still a few more i would like to see (Dark Waters, A Hidden Life, Ad Astra, The Goldfinch, etc). But as it stands, here is how I ranked things. https://letterboxd.com/bcarr95/list/2019/
