  1. Mexicanos al grito de Guerra (1943) - I saw this one almost a decade ago when TCM was showing Mexican films because of the 100th anniversary of the Revolution. In this film a Mexican patriot and the daughter of a French ambassador of Napoleon (who was occupying the country at the time) fall in love. I don't remember much of this film but I remember the funny and clumsy way Napoleon III was portrayed. Napoleon III tries to tax every window and door! (not sure of the historical accuracy of that) This film is decent and worth a look.
  2. Zou-Zou (1934) - Another Josephine Baker musical. Baker plays a woman who grew up in the circus. Her friend she grew up with is accused of murder and she must set things straight. This one had a few good numbers and is worth a look.
  3. The French Way (1940) - This one was a TCM Import a few months ago and I saw it then. This film was shot in 1940 but was only released in 1945 after WWII. Josephine Baker is a singer who helps two lovers get together. The lovers' parents hate each other so they have to hide and sneak around. All this while bombs are dropping and people flee to the air raid shelters. This was an okay film. Worth viewing for any Baker fans.

  5. This is a very beautiful movie. I don't usually cry at movies but I cry at the end of this one.
  6. That video is a good overview of the meme. I saw this article in Jacobite the post political magazine and I think it really explains the meme pretty well and why people are afraid to admit how truthful it is. https://jacobitemag.com/2018/10/02/empty-realm/

In early June, the agency announced it was sending up to 1,600 immigrant detainees to five federal prisons in Texas, Oregon, California, Washington, and Arizona. But now, a total of only three ICE detainees remain across the five prisons that once held hundreds of immigrants. Immigrant detainees l

  10. A Small Town Idol - condensed version of the 1921 Mack Sennett film. Ben Turpin is a small town man who is falsely accused of bigamy by a romantic rival so he leaves to Hollywood. He comes back as a star but the villain is still there and won't let him have a break. This one had some funny gags and looked well shot. Unfortunately the full length version does not appear to be online or available anywhere. I hope it turns up some time though.

  12. Those films are good but they cost a lot of money so I wouldn't wait to see them on TCM any time soon.
  13. I think I saw Odd Obsession last time it was on TCM too but forgot about it so it may not be on my list. Didn't really care for it either way.
  14. I don't think he's doing it on purpose or trying to be rude. I think he can't help it.
