  1. Did I miss something? I usually come to this site to discuss film noir. All of a sudden the conversation is about telephone poles, Miss Kitty from GUNSMOKE and whether Hudson NY has changed in sixty years. I guess I had higher expectations for this site. Silly me.
  2. I really like ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW. Eddie mentioned it was one of the last B&W noirs of the era. I thought Belafonte, Ryan and Begley were all great. I hadn't seen that much of Robert Ryan until I started watching Noir Alley a few years ago. He's right up there with Robert Mitchum and John Garfield as far as I'm concerned.
  3. Yes, that would work. I remember the late River Phoenix played Indy as a youth either in a movie or on TV. It's hard to believe Phoenix ( if he was still alive) might be too old to play the part at 49 . Also, to be correct; Ford won't turn 79 until July. Anyway if they decide to make the film I sure hope they include Karen Allen. She's still pretty cute at age 69.
  4. There was an Indiana Jones marathon over the weekend. We watched some of it. I always liked THE LAST CRUSADE. I read somewhere that Sean Connery is only twelve years older than Harrison Ford, but played his father. Also, I've heard Ford is going to do one more Jones film at age 79. I like these movies and Ford. However, I'd have to say I think he's aged out of the role.
  5. While clearly one of Bogie's best performances, I didn't like the movie because my hero was "the bad guy".
  6. My favorite movie with them together is THE ODD COUPLE. My favorite with Lemmon by himself is THE APRIL FOOLS. My favorite with Matthau by himself is KOTCH.
  7. Well, I found NATIVE SON very interesting. As a movie the acting and directing was not that good, but I found the plot line very intriguing. it was also very sad. What's even sadder is that the conditions in parts of the black community today are only marginally better seventy years later. It is interesting that this film could not be made in the US in 1951. I guess one can say we've made a lot of progress in that area. However, whenever I start to think we're moving to a better place something like 1/6 happens. Like Rodney King famously said "Can't we just all get along?"
  8. CORRECTION: For anyone who might want to watch the tournament over the weekend, it's on CBS; not NBC. Sorry.
  9. My mother always told me if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything. Hopefully, she would be proud of my following comment. "---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------" That's all I have to say.
  10. I'm sorry LHF. I didn't mean to insinuate you might look like the guy in the photos. I'm sure you probably look more like Sean Connery, like me.
  11. I didn't know much about Conrad Veidt. I did some research and learned he had quite a prolific career in pre-war Germany, England and the US. I thought he was great in CASABLANCA. Sadly, he died in 1943 only a year after playing Major Strasser. His is only one of the great performances in what is still my favorite movie of all time to this very day. "Here's looking at YOU; Kid". PS Is that you in the pictures LHF? If so, I'm jealous.
  12. Thanks for the photos. You're correct. Hogan did have a flat swing. My guess is Bogart probably read Hogan's book, FIVE LESSONS.
  13. To all you Bogart fans who also love golf (like me), this weekend's PGA Tour event might be of interest. The Genesis Open which was once called the LA Open will be televised on Golf Channel and NBC. It's played at the famed Riviera Country Club. Many of Hollywood's iconic figures were members there including Bogie. He actually lived close to the course and would position himself underneath the sycamore tree beside the 12th hole, with a thermos of bourbon, to watch the pros come through during the tournament. It was hence named The Bogart Tree. Apparently, though he never participated in cele
  14. After hearing about it for years, I finally watched PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE on TCM On Demand today. The critics were right. It is really bad. I remember seeing the movie ED WOOD with Johnny Depp so I had an some idea as to why the film was such a mess. The acting, the editing and the direction were all terrible. It was kind of like watching a train wreck. By the time I got half way through I just could not look away. I understand it's been called the worst movie ever made. I guess as Bill Murray said in CADDIE SHACK; it's got that going for it. BTW Speaking of CADDIE SHACK, I always thou
  15. I think McConnell's speech was to please all the big money contributors that said they would pull there money from any Republicans that voted to acquit. Also, by inferring the former president should still be prosecuted, but the Senate didn't have that authority, he passes the buck to President Biden's DOJ. By doing that he protects himself and his caucus from any blame from the former president's ardent supporters. My hope is Attorney General Garland (if he's ever confirmed) won't take the bait and let the local DAs in Atlanta, DC and Manhattan pursue justice. Anyway, the guy is out for no
