  1. Thank you for being so honest. Maybe you and I are cousins. I occasionally have a strong impulse to steal a horse. Maybe it's genetic.
  2. I don't know about your ancestors, but mine came over by boat long after 1620, and mine landed more toward the South. I think they were pretty much rogues and poor share-cropping farmers, with substantial numbres of sinners and horse thieves among them. 1/16 of my ancesters walked over, freezing along the way, from North East Asia and then on down into the US area, about 12,000 years ago.
  3. Hmm.... sounds like the 2nd replay of the same dialogue, spoken differently, is what happened in "The Conversaion", except the person killed was not the girl, but her father. A bugging expert records those conversations, and goes mad trying to interpret their true meaning, based on the different way the same dialogue was spoken differently the second time he listened to it. First time: "He would have KILLED us if he had a chance.". Emplying the father would have killed the girl and the boyfriend. Second time: "He would have killed US if he had a chance." Emplying the boyfriend and girl were justified in killing the father.
  4. By the way..... to start, I asked "What would this guy look like in 10 to 15 years?" I decided on Lewis Stone, but countless searches turned up nothing, then I let my brain go through a whole series of naurual algorithms. My brain does this automatically. Face, hair, nose, age at time of photo, approximate year of photo, approximate year 10 to 15 years later, and I came up with H.B. Warner. Then I searched for the photo, and there it was on page 2.
  5. I don't know how accurate it is, but it seems to tell a lot about how difficult it was in those old days to ride a sailing ship to the New World.... and then try to build homes and raise food before winter arrives at Plymouth. I think we should give as much credit to our brave ancestors as we do to our brave WW II soldiers.
  6. Leave it open for anyone, or do another one yourself.
  7. H.B. WARNER Newspaper photo page link: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030214/1922-01-22/ed-1/seq-70/#date1=1836&sort=relevance&rows=20&words=B+H+Warner&searchType=basic&sequence=0&index=2&state=&date2=1922&proxtext=h+b+warner&y=0&x=0&dateFilterType=yearRange&page=2
  8. Do you mean if I come to a fork in the road, take it?
  9. I thought the title of the film was really good, especially since it was two older men who were talking about modern times.
  10. I generally like the film, and I've seen it at least 3 times, because it is so unusual with some unusual and interesting stuff in it. But I don't like the unsolved mysteries or vague endings. Generally, the old classics left us with no unsolved mysteries. But this film is like cutting the last 5 minutes off of every famous old classic film. This film suddenly ended in a way that would be exactly like cutting GONE WITH THE WIND right after Scarlet says, "But where will I go, what will I do??" (go directly to fade out and theme music).
  11. This was an old French import Art-Theater film that was popular with us younger folks back in the early '60s, like LA DOLCE VITA, and other foreign films. It was a "French Classic" art film for a long time. I never got to see it, but people talked about it for years. The title is kinda catchy.
  12. Yeah, where were the women? Every time I've been to Texas there have been lots of women of all ages. And kids too.
  13. The film wasn't "resolved" at all. That is a big problem for me and one reason I don't like new films. So did he kill the girl or smell dog poo on his boot? Did the cops coming to the accident find him and arrest him? Or did the Coens plan for a Part 2 film that they never made? So how did it end? Well, it didn't end at all. It was like in the old days when an old worn out film broke in a theater, 5 minutes from the end and the projectionist couldn't repair it. It was like cutting off the last 5 minute of Gone With the Wind or the last 5 minutes of Treasure of the Sierra Madre. One of those kids told him a bone was sticking out of his arm, so how did he fix it? Didn't that hurt? Wouldn't a hospital ask questions about it. Did he just go through the rest of his life with the bone sticking out? And how did that guy wearing only a hospital gown pay for all his new clothes since he wasn't carrying any money with Him? And how could they have a big shoot-out in a fairly large Texas town at night with nobody on the street or coming out of the bars to took at it, and no cops arriving? How could he kill 2 people with a shotgun in an old hotel without waking up half the guests? Even with the silencer, it still made a lot of noise.
