I have long heard that yawns are contagious but the sight of those teeth leaves me wide awake!

One person who shall remain nameless except to say that it is Capuchin claims to be able to cure cats of insomnia. Part of me believes that that must be the world's most useless skill while a different part of me imagines it would be an intensely complicated process if it was ever truly needed.

Darn, I was going to cite the guy on Monty Python who could give cats influenza:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXuCiEWc_7E

Gotta say here slayton, you seem to have the same reservation about cats as Indiana Jones did about snakes.

(...wanna talk about it?)

So watching EYE OF THE CAT (1969-Universal) or THE UNCANNY (1977) is out of the question then?

Did anybody mention Stars in My Crown yet?

There's a typhoid epidemic that leaves the civil authority (the doctor, since I don't think we ever see the town's mayor) running around like a chicken with his head cut off much like today's "leaders", who responds by trying to lock down the town preacher.  There's also a guy who is willing to engage in violence to keep his essential frontline heroes working at his mica mine.

So, basically the Jeff Bezos Story, eh Fedya?!

I think, a long way back in the thread.  But it bears repeating.

STARS IN THEIR CROWNS is one of my favorite films of the 1950's, and it (at least recently) was on TCM and may be available thru ON DEMAND or HULU.

it manages to be resonant IN SO MANY WAYS, i really HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

What's there to talk about?  There's nothing to talk about.  I don't need to talk about it.

It's just cat videos infecting the message boards.  Ohhh, the horror. . . .

THE BLOB (1988)

Quarantine and suits and all kinds of FAMILIAR THEMES, PLUS IT'S REALLY GOOD!

My review is in the I JUST WATCHED THREAD.

What a catastrophe!

Think so, do ya slayton? Well, that's nothin'.

I once had a cat who got hold of a catalog after finding my credit card.

The little #$%&* ordered a catamaran and sailed it to Catalina, and which wouldn't have been so bad if he would've invited me along.

(... sorry Steve Martin...I just couldn't resist)

Speaking of cats . . .

I recommend watching the 1976 movie DOGS (aka:  "Slaughter").

Time to watch THE PACK (1977).  Fun with Joe Don Baker & Co.

Maybe this belongs in "Information Please", but it seems rather deserted. Are there any  surviving films from the silent era that were either about the pandemic of 1918 or had it incorporated into the story?
