    Does anyone know if there are legal reasons why Freud (1962) with Montgomery Clift is not available anywhere?

    From Wiki  Freud: The Secret Passion was eventually released in the UK by Transition Digital Media in a 1.78:1 letter-boxed, non-anamorphic 4:3 format, on a Region 2 DVD edition on April 23, 2012,movie was shown on tv but several years ago.

  2. Letty Lynton here is from imdb  'Unofficially based on Edward Sheldon and Margaret Ayer Barnes play Dishonored Lady to such a great extent that a Federal court ruled on 17th January 1936 that the film could not be seen again unless Sheldon and Barnes are given credit,or until the copyright of the play runs out in 2050! More on wiki  .I have a copy,not pristine,a good movie .My favorite George Hurrell photos of Joan Crawford are from the Letty sessions,i have a very large of this one  in a frame museum quality matted etc

    Very true.

    However, it is the goal of the current Republican party to destroy everything that the Democratic party has accomplished since Franklin D Roosevelt's New Deal.

    It has been a concerted effort of the 1% who have always been against FDR and civil rights for all Americans,  to whittle away at our democratic freedoms with extreme right-wing think tanks, political pacs, media, template legislative agendas for all 50 states, gerrymandering ect. For number of decades.

    And this extreme right-wing Elite has gotten it's support from the poorly educated white lower classes--

    who see themselves lost in the emergence of the Level Playing Field if equality eradicates their racist white privilege.

    trump is only the latest player in this vast game.

    The mainstream Republicans have gone along with this game for years until it's gotten entirely out of control. As their tacit racism and misogyny has been replaced with trump's crude- loud- vulgar tweets.

    To put it simply--the moderate Republicans' agenda isn't entirely opposite that of the current GOP of trump and McConnell. What offends the moderates is the lack of Civility, public cover, and the lip service to feminism,  equality and civil rights for all that would keep so many of the college-educated white Suburbanites voting Republican.

    trump is an embarrassment to everyone in both parties, however as long as he can carry out the agenda of the extreme right-wing GOP they're trying to hang on to him.

    But it's naive to think that it started with him or that he is really the Juggernaut of the whole thing.

    Birther boy has just been a failed real estate businessman/ network reality TV star, who became the precipitant and the icing on the cake for that 1%.

    I agree with you the problem with  the GOP is not recent what i do not accept is the fact Trump is getting away with everything,when he got away with the sex tape in 2016,i knew he was going to win: no politician would have survived  something like that,this is the difference now the GOP is letting loose a monster with no limits ,murdering their fellow countrymen ,this is unreal..how many more by november 3rd ?...

    I'm from Canada… you have in the USA a corrupt murderous administration, i always  thought Trump wanted to be a dictator but this is getting out of control, the man is insane and very dangerous, Biden will have an incredible job just to put the country in shape,Trump destroyed everything Obama has done. The USA have a president  thinking  he is dictator for life, the complete Republican party must be eradicated as it is not the older one.They must be all voted out: Senators,judges,sheriffs,representatives etc Trump and his movement must disappear forever ,i could not believe what happened in Michigan with all these boneheads with assault rifles at the Governor's place, in my country they would have not set foot there.. the army would have been waiting for them,this is very dangerous behaviour especially when Trump asked to 'liberate' Michigan, Trump is a murderer period.

    For years I would go to Amoeba Music in Hollywood looking for DC5 cds. They are one of the main groups in which I don’t have any (other than some vinyl albums I can’t play).   With the store closed down (hopefully) temporarily, I don’t know if they are now available. 

    In the 90's nothing was available, there was a series of 2 on 1 cds from Europe,'gray area' done from clean lps they were good,the japanese did a lot of that too,you could hear crackles on some

    'The French-Canadian vs. Parisian French accent differ mostly in pronunciation of vowels.   French-Canadian accent has more of a long "A" sound in words like bien, demain, etc.  We also say "Eh" a lot.  By the way, Banff is in Western Canada, whereas my folks all came from Quebec.

     

     

    There is several regional accents in the Québec province which is normal,but overall the French in Québec is better then the one from France which Anglicised everything,it is incredible the English words in France now.. and i'am not talking about 'shopping' hélas...

  9. L'HOMME PRESSÉ 1977 by Edouard Molinaro .Alain Delon Mireille Darc.During the 70,s Delon made many-too many -movies ,the gems are MR KLEIN in 1976 and this one in 1977.It was remade in 2005 -with his son Anthony in the same role, and in 2018.I have not seen the 2 remakes.A very special film about the modern world,to be in a hurry all the time, the pleasure of a collector in reality is owning.Delon's character do not like to waste time,saying a pregnancy is too long,7 months should be enough as the baby is complete !! And i'am not mentioning anything about his lovemaking! A great film.8/10

    I don't have any Stones LPs  I have several Stones songs from various albums that my daughter compiled onto  a few discs though.  Never seemed to be enough on one LP to make me buying one sensible.  But like we always say....  "to each".  ;) 

    Rummaging through my CDs I came across this reissue, which when released was 'bout as big as "Frampton Comes Alive" got to be....

    (one of my favorite cuts from it)

    Sepiatone

    I saw them live 3 times in the early 70's.A very  good band it was a good seller for them, a gold record i.e half a million units not as big as Frampton's though,you should listen to their follow up,a very good studio album titled 'Grand Hotel ' from 1973.Ther 1971 lp Broken Barricades is very good ,their last with Robin Trower on guitar.

    What film roles did Gene Hackman turn down?  

    He wanted to be in Klute but Jane Fonda wanted Donald Sutherland but it was in 1971 After the stiff of Scarecrow in 1973 Hackman mainly concentrated on acting for money, turning down such films as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and Network (1976) for roles in films like March or Die (1977) and Lucky Lady (1975) that offered him fatter paychecks.He was the first choice to play Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) he was also offered a chance to direct it.
    One of the lead roles in Network (1976)the lead role of Roy Neary in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)the leading role in Sorcerer (1977) that went to Roy Scheider,the role of Dr. Berger in Ordinary People (1980)) he said'I didn't turn it down, we couldn't make a deal.'Turned down the lead roles in Jaws (1975), and Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).

    Interesting comment re: Hackman and paycheck.  Some actors will take a large paycheck to finance or star in a film with a better film.

     

    Not Gene, for his first divorce maybe …. but paycheck was the incentive,you would never believe what he turned down...

    OMG, you got me there! Now that was a real stinker!

    Come to think of it, I think SUPERMAN IV just might beat out THE DOMINO PRINCIPLE (though just barely) but still I believe LOOSE CANNONS ranks as Hackman's absolute worst, but the other 2 films are close behind.

    I' am a Gene Hackman completist -i'am missing only Banning-his swan song was  his worst : MOOSEPORT  (sorry i cannot insert the ' great' poster).He cashed his check and retired.Since Scarecrow was a stiff in 73,Hackman always selected his roles with the value of the paycheck coming with it,he passed on many good ones but no more art films for him as a result: a rich guy with many stinkers, unfortunately...
