  1. Thank you for the birthday wishes. It was okay. (And for me that is fine.) We had dinner with my parents and son so it was filled with loved ones. I am not broke. My daughter was very happy with a low key event. We had it in her backyard and about 40 people and had breakfast for dinner. It was a lovely time. If you talk to Miss G please pass on my regards. She was a help and was quite friendly to me when I came on here some 14 years or so ago.
  2. I like Talk of The Town. The three most interesting voices in movies all in one film.
  3. I haven't been on here in some time but it certainly looks to be popular. My tastes aren't broad enough for it to be too interesting for my posts but glad others have taken it on. Hve fun.
  4. So nice to see part of the gang. Bronxie: I watched Red River not long ago and I always enjoy it. Yes, Joanne is annoying but she is still has some charm for me. Scott: All are well. My daughter just married a few weeks ago. We are all healthy if dull. Still trying to get my dose of movies and music. It would be a sad world without. I keep up with some on Facebook but I haven't talked to Sweet T in some time. I have no ideas about MissG. It is good to hear from you. Take care. Hope to see all of you some more!
  5. Scott, my friend!!! How are you? I see I have missed your birthday. (Again.) I had wondered through some other threads recently, probably about westerns and thought of you. I hope you are well. If you have time please drop me a note and let me know how things are. It is wonderful to see some familiar names. We were a fine group. I hope you still get to come by and find some things to enjoy. I stop occasionally to see what goes on but I don't know many anymore. Anyway, a belated and heartfelt Happy Birthday to you.
  6. Here is a fine thread for reading. If you dance around the birthday wishes (we were a pretty tight group) you will find plenty of worthwhile comments. 335 pages worth.
  7. The thing about most Murphy westerns is that they are fairly routine. (No Name On The Bullet I would say being an exception.) I have always found them, and him, pleasant entertainment. He is certainly amiable and often does a good job. He, too often, doesn't have material that brings it above the routine. (A fate of most early 50's Randolph Scott films.) They are a good way to spend 90 minutes. Just don't overthink them.
  8. For some SD broadcasts (not always TCM) I found that I had to change the setting on the cable box itself. For Comcast you had to turn the box off and then hit menu and there came up a set of options that allowed me to preset the 4:3 ratio to that rather than stretched or zoom. That might apply to some situations. I only found that by typing aspect ratio in the Support section.
  9. It was Looney Tunes all the way. Later I had enough of Daffy and Speedy Gonzalez but up until then they were the best. Saturday morning and even weekday mornings on local TV was a wonderful way to fill time before school (and later work.) Tom and Jerry were fun. I remember my father laughing at Tom and Jerry like little else he saw on TV. Rocky and Bullwinkle were fun but much better when I was older. It was for adults. A lot of filler in the links between sketches. Was never much of a Disney fan. Popeye isn't on my radar anymore. I even got a collection of Droopy cartoons. Not enough shown anymore.
  10. I enjoyed seeing Robert's intro to tonight's movie. I hope they do them now and then. He set the standard and everyone else is fine but there is only one Robert.
  11. Hitchcock: Jamaica Inn. Dull. It may be nice to look at but that is about it.
  12. Here is a reason to bring this thread up. Amazon Prime is carrying some L&H shorts. (Silent ones at that.) Some haven't been around is some time. Also, look for Stan and Ollie in theaters soon. It has received some pretty good reviews.
  13. Hi, I saw your name and had to say hello. It has been awhile since we have chatted and I hope all is well in your world. You mentioned Susan Slept Here and I saw it for the first time last week. I was a little surprised at the premise but it was pleasant enough to watch. Debbie Reynolds sure was into her part. Maybe I will check in more often. Haven't had a good movie discussion in some time. Regards, Chris
