I watched a movie years ago, and it had a line that stuck with me. Unfortunately, I don't recall the movie or the specific phrasing. I'd really love to track it down though. In the movie, one of the characters comments that he knew of some soldiers that were wounded years ago. Some even had bullets that had completely healed over, so as they walked around you would never know that they'd ever been wounded. But anytime a storm came up or the weather changed, they'd feel pain as though it were a fresh injury again. (Paraphrased) The line stuck in my mind because it works literally and as a metaphor. There have been instances of soldiers having wounds heal over, but they experience pain when the barometric pressure changed (1, 2, 3). Then there are soldiers who have not suffered from a physical injury, but they have mental scars that are hidden. Their pain can surface at times from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Shell Sock. If that's enough for anyone recognize the movie, please share. In the meantime, I wish everyone among the TCM message boards happy viewing and good health. United States. Surgeon-General's Office, George Alexander Otis. 1869.

Hello everyone. I have mentioned several times that I am a Glenn Ford fan and that I want to see every movie he ever made. I have a high percentage of movies seen from his big screen career-past 85%. I thought it was time to start a favourite forum thread on Glenn Ford. Here are some of my favourite Glenn Ford movies in no particular order except the first film: Gilda, which is the first film I saw with him and in my opinion is the sexiest movie I've ever seen. Here are *some* of my favourites: GILDA 3:10 TO YUMA THE GAZEBO THE TEAHOUSE OF THE AUGUST MOON TORPEDO RUN THE BIG HEAT DON'T GO NEAR THE WATER EXPERIMENT IN TERROR THE MONEY TRAP THE FASTEST GUN ALIVE DEAR HEART THE COURTSHIP OF EDDIE'S FATHER IMITATION GENERAL THE SHHEPMAN IT STARTED WITH A KISS COWBOY RANSOM INTERRUPTED MELODY and many more. What are yours?
I'm sure glad that they showed last night the tin drum.I had not seen that in a long time,since h.b.o in the late 70's .What was really interesting is the scene where the radio was being played and you heard Zarah Leander singing ,"Is it a sin to love?It would have been nice if t.c.m. doubled featured it with the 1938 German film ,"The Blue Fox. This Zarah Leander classic had this song as part of this comedy costarring Paul Horbinger .Since after early 2000 t.c.m has been politically correct against showing any more film of 33 and 45 of Germany and Austria except what they repeated.They will show film made in japan during the war and some of the Russian film too and hypocritically show our own biased classics,but not the other Genre, any more .T.cm is selfish.What's worst they are causing desegregation of these films ,making them more poisonous than they are .This is typical of Hollywood greed and selfishness, beside over playing the winners.One day Hollywood will be pressured by the public to put out more variety or no more money Serve all consumer of classic film or else. The worst part is that the history channel and the American heroes channel is also double standard .Autobiography of a dictator ,but no movie made in that period .The owners of a.m.c are double standard politically correct too ,they own the history channel .Money first film history second .Pretending to serve. exploiting, a bunch of dull sorry audiences Turner classic movies need to have the Joan river attitude,but,in films.No aspect of film history should be above showing. T.c.m. only that way moderately only .
