I know this is the place for me. Loved Heartland. I crossed paths, briefly, with Rip Torn some years ago up in the NW hills of CT. 

Conchata Farrell, to me, was a poor man's Kathy Bates. While she enjoyed a solid career, I some how think she did not get the credit she deserved.

And...Rip Torn....what a stage name!

Glad to find another fan of HEARTLAND (1979). Wish TCM would air it.

If I recall correctly, I discovered it on the Retroplex movie channel a few years ago.

I did see it on some cable channel within the past year.

I saw it in a little art theater up in Litchfield, CT...the Bantam Cinema, which is still running. Movies like HEARTLAND, CHILLY SCENES OF WINTER, MY DINNER WITH ANDRE, WICKERMAN (the original),  RAN, AMADEUS, DAS BOOT, DEAD POETS SOCIETY, IMMORTAL BELOVED. I saw FARGO there...and PULP FICTION.

It was way to small to show big films like any of the Indiana Jones movies or any Spielberg's stuff. No Tom Cruise, though maybe, sadly,  EYES WIDE SHUT was. My wife and I would have a little dinner at a cafe next door and go to the movies. Some times there'd be only 5-6 people in the place. I think we were the only people there one night to see THE CRYING GAME, which was good when that...well...you know...scene showed up.

The only problem I had with the Bantam Cinema is it would show every single, freaking Gerard Depardieu movie that came out. I never got that guy. Leading man? To me he was a French version of Wallace Beery. What could Catherine Deneuve ever see in Gerard Depardieu? But then, what does Penelope Cruz see in Javier Bardem? 

But now...I just digress.

And didn't lovely Andie MacDowell fall for him in GREEN CARD (1990)...?

Ugh...exactly!

Though he was perfectly cast as the slovenly cook in LIFE OF PI. He just rolled out of bed and showed up on the set.

2117 and 2118 yes.  Think I might have seen Dillinger.

TCM usually airs DILLINGER during Oscar month since it was nominated for best screenplay.

I've seen Man of the West. My memory is so spotty, I can't ascertain that I've seen all of any of the others. I know I've seen at least parts of Dillinger and The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond. But I guess I'm going to put them in the "No" category because I can't recall any specific scenes in either.

So, I've probably just seen one all the way through.

2122 is Tugboat Annie. Yes.

2125 is It Came from Outer Space. Yes.

2128 is An American Werewolf in London. Yes.

2129 is Turner & Hooch. No.

2130 is Outbreak. These kinds of movies briefly topped all the streaming rental charts for a while this year, I think I read. I haven't seen it.

So, I think I've seen three.

I recognize almost all of the actors, but I can't place most the older movies.

2134 is The Long, Long Trailer. Yes.

2136 They made like seven movies together, so I'm not a hundred per cent sure, but I think it's The Sandpiper. Yes.

2138 Gloria? No.

2139 Oh, that Cruise/Kidman movie where they're Irish immigrants directed by Ron Howard. Can't think of the name. I never saw it.

2140 Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which apparently has no connection to the Hitchcock film other than the title. No.

Possibly I've just seen one or two.

2139 is something like Far and Away (may have seen it, not sure)

2134 Yes

One of the movies is Bronson and Jill Ireland (may have seen it)

2140 Yes (like both of the leads)

Recognize Liz and Dick, Ronald R. and Jane Wyman, John C. and Gena R. (I think I saw Gloria)

Looks like the theme is husbands and wives (Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor?)

I may have seen The Comedians (Graham Greene?)  and, I think, Breakheart Pass.

THE COMEDIANS (1967) is an under-appreciated work from Burton and Taylor. It has a fine supporting cast which includes Lillian Gish, Paul Ford and Roscoe Lee Browne.

I was wrong on my guess of Burton/Taylor movies. I haven't seen that one. So, I've only seen one.

See my note above. I recommend it.

2142 is The Best Years of Our Lives. Yes.

2146 is Days of Wine and Roses. Yes.

2149 is The Terminator. Yes.
