  1. Room for two in that "time machine"... I don't know though, my ulcer might not handle that chili these days. I have enough problems with a big mac! LOL jerry c
  2. Oh, and who could forget "That Touch of Mink" jerry c
  3. Hi Shaina... you have my vote also with Pillow Talk jerry c
  4. Someday maybe I will tell you (and all) about how the police (mistakenly) arrested me at Sunset and Western (helicopters, squads, shotguns.) Also the time I got into an accident with Roman Polanski in front of Micheal's restaurant. Not a whole lot of good memories of my stay, other than riding my Harley up to the ??? observitory, loved that place and the "view." Ps. I got dragged out that by my first wife, she wanted to be an actess. Funny the only one to get offered a part was ME in one of the Clint Eastwood movies with the "monkey." jerry c
  5. "lzcutter... man all THAT talk"... sorry jerry c
  6. lzcutter... man all talk, makes we want a "Tommy Burger." Haven't had one since the 70's when I lived there for a year. The earth moving scared the heck out of me. I remember a Deloris Drive-In also, I think over by the Tar-pits. If I remember right I worked at Western and Wilshire (se corner) and there was a Tommy's on the south west corner.... I miss them big green tomatoes! jerry c
  7. My favorites for "over and over" are... It happened One Night Since You Went Away Boom Town Boys Town Pittsburgh Thirty Seconds over Tokyo Hollywood Canteen Miracle of Morgran's Creek Meet John Doe Only Angels Have Wings Wife Vs. Secretary Devil and Miss Jones (Jean Arthur, Robert Cummings, Charles Cobrun) Three Cheers for the Irish Destination Tokyo Wing and a Prayer People will Talk Anthing by Cary Grant, Debra Kerr, Randolph Scott, Spencer Tracy, the "Hepp", John Wayne (war movies), John Garfield.... and the list goes on... these are just timeless! jerry c
  8. I saw that movie "the great raid" taken from the book "Some Survived" by lawton. I'm looking at the book on my shelf. I much enjoyed the book over the movie, but your right for modern day that was a good production. Being a busted up Vietnam vet (disabled now) , I like the entertainment value of a movie more than how "realistic" Speilberg can make a bullet tearing through flesh sound. Just doesn't do anything for me. I like the love scenes and the way they blend so many characters into the old movies and when a guy dies in combat, it's ok with me if he just slumps over. Another good book is "Flags of our Fathers" James Bradley, about Iwo Jima and "the Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors"... all great reading. I appreciate your comments... jerry c
  9. Hi Fred, I just read your reply about 30 Seconds over Tokyo you wrote back in Feb. You talked about Robert Mitchum (sp? don't like right) anyway, yes he did have a small part in that film, I believe it was his first film that he got credit in. That movie had such a wonderful cast. I wonder why more of them never went on to "star" in more movies. Phyllis Thaxter, I thought played a terrific part, along with the guy who played "Shorty" Madge, Glover, Robert Walker (I love most of his work, ashamed he died young) and I read somewhere about Spencer Tracy, how he took such a small part in that movie to allow others more credit. Just a great movie all around. I watch it every couple weeks. I wrote a post in "information please" about the comment Phyllis Thaxter makes behind the glass when Van Johnson is taking off for the mission. If you read her lips, it looks like she is say's "sh%&, I'll be with you" I found that odd for her to say, also the line about "since Pearl Harbor, there's been so much VELVET"... I didn't understand that comment. Speaking of things like this, what's your take on the movie "So Proudly We Hail"... did (John) George Reeves survive? When he left Claudette Colbert to go to Manatua bay for supplies. The beginning and the ending where the clergyman is reading her a letter from "John." All the times I've seen that, it suddenly dawned on me that it sounds like he made it. --- just more of my babble --- jerry c
  10. Hi Kathy, I'm glad that you have been "hooked" by these oldies. You just can't beat them for entertainment value. I'm not much on what comes out of Hollywood today and yet I can sit and watch hours full of oldies (b&w's) and never get tired of seeing them. Some I just run over and over on sleepless nights. Glad to have you here! Most of my favorites are late 30's thru mid 40's. A lot of war (Pacific theater) and comedies. jerry c
  11. Randolph Scott!!!! I heard this awhile back from Osborne himself and he eluded to Scott having something going with Rock Hudson I believe. I still can't believe it though. I love almost anything by Scott and Hudson also! I won't go political here, but the one thing that bothers me is when it's "rammed down my thoat" (no pun intended.) Ann Heshe (sp?), what can I say... I just drool...it don't matter if she is. Now Barbara Stanwich... give me a break, you know I think I heard that William Bendix and Groucho Marx had a thing going at one time also.
  12. Oh yeah the "mouse thing"... been there done that! jerry c
  13. Hi again Fred... love your description of your system. I know what your going through with remotes and channels etc. The one thing I can suggest is to make sure your digital feed to your recorders is as close as possilbe before all the other peripherals. Remember all them connections lead to signal lose. When you take from VHS to DVD, what program do you use? I have tried a few and none works like Studio. I have thought about getting their newest version which is 10, but I have not had any problems with what I have. Their newest version has lots more transitions, face effects, etc. I have more than enough of them on hand. Also you did not mention your "rendering" times, have you had any issues with this? OK, I'm gonna make this reply as short as I can. Ps. I used to work for NASA (Voyager II project) also put in 20 years with IBM (AS/400 CE) regards, jerry c
  14. I'm impressed Fred. Good for you that you have multiple systems to work with. Acutally I have 3 computer systems here in front of me. I have one along dedicated to making my DVD's, although I have done quite abit with music files for me and my kids on this unit also. No problems with disc space on it either. Now on your DVD to DVD that you use for dubbing, do you have problems with "copy right protection" on rental movies? I know we should not discuss this openly here, but it's a fact, people do do it. I don't do it for a business, nor do I turn a "buck" from it. Just for my own collection and my theory is, If I've bought it, I own them rights to back up my collection. But there are ways around that problem if you need help. We can discuss privately away from here. jerry c
  15. Hi Fred. I assume your recording to DVD thru a computer or DVD recorder since I don't know of any VHS ever made that gave you that "fine" of adjustment for recording. IF you are recording to a DVD Recorder 1. does your machine have an internal harddrive? 2. If it does not have an internal harddrive are you able to go back and "edit" any movie after the fact? as I do on my computer. I much prefer my method, I have looked at the Panasonic models with hard drives even downloading the manuals online to see if this is possible, but it's not from what I have read. I use a program called Studio vs. 8 along with my Studio USB Moviebox and have nothing but good results since figuring it all out. I too had that 80-90 barrier in the beginning and nobody had an answer til I talked with one of my IBM buddies who was also going this this a couple years ago. He had already converted his drive to NTFS and no problems with time. Also along with doing it on the computer you have many options to "improve" what you wind up with. Alot of the older movies have image quality problems, now TCM does do a great job on sending out a very high quality picture, but when your dealing with rentals or older VHS that you pick up, the images can be a problem, so to do some enhancements is actually "fun time" for me to see just how good I can make it. Sound is another issue, there are no "filters" that I have found that can deal with sound qualitys. Rending time for me is still an issue, seems to me if it's a b&w and under 90 minutes in length, I go run thru rending in about an hour, NOW if' it's over 90 minutes and in color... well now your talking great rending times. Anyway from 7 to 11 hours. Be prepared for this. I usually do my rendings at night time when I go to bed. Set it and forget it!... seems I've heard that before somewhere...LOL I hope this info helps you. jerry c
