  1. If only he could do something on his own. The slogan is stolen from MLK in 1968. And the issues are the same as RFK's 1968 run. Five democratic presidents since 1962 - what's that - 32 years democrat out of 57 years, and it's the same slogan and same issues? Someone can check my math or whatever, but it won't change the truth. I'm not any party since I'm apolitical. It's all a big con game. One big, creepy carnival side show. There's only one sentence that has any truth to it in politics: "It's all about the money." Anybody who thinks differently is a fool.
  2. I will admit to something. I used to live so close to where i work that I could walk home for lunch and watch a rerun of the old Andy Griffith show, which got me interested in backlots. It actually bummed me out that the sheriff's office was only a front with 2x4's bracing it up! I could have lived without knowing that! I read that the lot was surrounded by a tall fence with a earth berm built up next to it, at least part of it. In one show as I was watching i could hear horns honking, which was startling because you know if a horn honked on the Andy Griffith show or in Mayberry Barney wou
  3. I rarely watch anything after 1959. Obviously there's some great films that have been done (Apollo 13, The Martian, Cast Away, Risen, and more). I just skipped the 70's and 80's because so many films I was forced to watch (because my boyfriend or then husband wanted to see them) as a young adult were just plain stupid (70's - old guys with love beads or loud endless car chases, 80's old guys in bell bottoms and endless loud car chases), and women were....let's just say they did not lift me in any way. Now I sometimes have a "movie night" with my 18yo granddaughter and I always say the same
  4. I would like someone to explain this odd issue people in the 20's and 30's had with their necks. A comeback phrase might be "Oh go wash your own neck!" I've asked all sorts of people what was the deal with people's necks in the 30's? At this point I know no one is going to give me an answer, so I just save it for those special moments when whoever I'm with is pondering something else unanswerable. No one knows! I've seen it lots of times in old movies (Stage Door - the maid is on the phone and says it like "Oh yeah? Well...go wash your own neck!" and slams the phone down (not a direct
  5. She looks a bit like Thelma Lou's cousin from the Andy Griffith show in the later picture. The one who comes to visit and they had to get a date for her to the dance. She was a great character actress. Is this the same person?
  6. Actually, I think the guys who weren't so pretty in their youth became better looking as they aged and I found them more attractive than the pretty boys. i mean, who wouldn't like Gregory Peck's face in that moment when Edmund Gwynn hands him his umbrella in Keys to the Kingdom? He's beautiful in that scene, but I also began to like looking at actors who weren't so perfect as they aged. Edward G. Robinson, even, in a couple of movies later on (the one where he's dreaming of the girl in the painting in the window, and also as the father with Margaret O'Brien). His face is very likeable to
  7. Let's see. "Impact" - one of those lesser movies I love. I am watching "People will talk" with Cary Grant, and before that "Risen," which was great. I'll be watching that again. Last week my granddaughter practically forced me to watch "The martian," which was good. She had to promise me she'd watch "I remember Mama" before i would agree to watch it :^)
  8. Wasn't the narrator Errol Flynn? It was sort of a mini documentary, but not the real deal, and I remember something about research, but....maybe a helicopter picked him up and took him to the coast to board the ship. I remember him saying something about "not everybody gets to go this way..." or something like that and he ran across the grass to get on the 'copter. I'm not a huge Flynn fan, but I really liked the guy in that.
  9. Does anyone know the movie, and especially the singer, who sang a song i thought was "Honolulu Moon?" She's in a nightclub in Hawaii. I only got to see part of the song and had to go. It was really beautiful, a little romantically haunting. I've googled and youtubed to no avail. It played on TCM not too long ago (summer)?
  10. Psychologically, this is a necessary development and separation of self. Which is necessary because if it didn't happen no one would ever move out.
  11. Each case is individual, but in the eighties when I was working with these cases, it was the third marriage that tended to work. That was the point where people allowed themselves to think "....gee, maybe it has something to do with me and the way I think."
  12. can someone clarify - in "Now, Voyager," in the scene where Bette Davis runs from the tea party room after being teased by her niece, the niece says "...we always rag on Aunt Charlotte..." It sure sounds like it to me. I also remember watching the introduction to "All the president's men" and whoever it was said it was the first time that both sides of a phone conversation had been used and it was noted, etc., but that had happened in several earlier movies, like in "Shadow on the Wall," when Ann Southern calls the county law library, and another one i can't remember right now. Unless th
  13. earth is the lowest level of purgatory.
  14. I know he said he would return "...if I think I still look okay," but I always wanted to tell him - it's not about the looks, it's about the voice. He has a great voice.
  15. I would automatically watch this because I watch anything with Spring Byington and Edmund Gwynn. They're both jewels and I've liked them in just about everything they've been in. Gwynn was wonderful in "The Devil and Miss Jones." He played that wonderfully unlikable character so perfectly I actually felt sorry for him in the movie. Byington is always good. She was a charming actress, so homey and comfortable (but never in a predictable way exactly). I've never heard of Louisa! Thanks!
