LOL!!!! I swear the only reason I kept turning back to it was to see if I could spot when they substituted the dummy alligator for the real one.

Hi Barb,


It's a jungle out there! :)


I recorded *An Alligator Named Daisy* a while back but haven't watched it yet. For some reason I always record Margaret Rutherford movies.

Now I did get to see *Twonky* a few months ago thanks to Ollie. I really liked it. What a surreal little movie.

Good weekend to you, Larry.


Normally I'd be tickled to see a British alligator along with Margaret Rutherford, Diana Dors and Steven Boyd, but I was so looking forward

to an icily-sexy Max Schell play cat-and-mouse with Samantha Eggar

in RETURN FROM THE ASHES, which used to play back in the Bronx

decades ago, and I haven't seen the movie since, yet always remembered it. Funny, though, in the back of my mind I was thinking,

"It's just too good to be true that this is playing on TCM!" Well, I guess it was...


Yes, it certainly is a jungle out there. My frog will meet your snake for lunch soon.


Wasn't THE TWONKY fun in that oddly bland-but-weird 50's way? I watched SON OF KONG this morning, one of my childhood favorites. "Oh, I've got those runaway blues..." This is the film where Robert Armstrong actually appeared attractive to me.

I somehow knew ASHES would be a no-show. Don't ask me how or why.

There were likely either rights issues that cropped up or the distributor/studio couldn't provide a digital print.

Oh that is SO neat to hear! I really love how protective Carl Denham is towards "La Belle Helene".


And for some strange reason, I'm also attracted to John Marston as Helstrom. It's obviously not the character, since he's a pathetic murdering coward. I just dig the way Marston plays him.

A day in the life of Bronxgirl:


Mom phones.


Mom: "I was watching "Lassie" on HBO and my set went dead!"

Me: "Oh, you were watching "Lassie?"

Mom: "Yes. For some reason I wanted to see him."

Me: "Well, it's supposed to be a female, but it was always played by a male dog".

Mom: "How do you know all of this?"

Me: "What's wrong with your t.v.?"

Mom: "I can't get the picture on!"

Me: "Pull the plug out of the cable box, count to fifteen, then put it back in."

Mom: "Pull the plug from the television set?"

Me: "No! From the cable box. I'll wait."

Mom: "Okay, wait."




Me: "What were you doing? All you had to do is count to fifteen."

Mom: "I had to run to the bathroom and pee."

Me: "I'll wait again."




Me: "Okay, so is it working now?"

Mom: "I'm trying to put on channel 304, but nothing is happening."

Me: "Use the remote and move the channel either up or down".

Mom: "Oh, okay! It works! There's Lassie!"

Me: "Anything else you're having a problem with?"

Mom: "Oh, you're wonderful. I didn't have to call Comcast. Okay, now let me go back to watching it."

Me: "Be my guest. I wish you HAD called Comcast."

Oh my goodness, it is a bad sign when you refer anyone to your cable provider. :)


I thought the same thing about the ending to THE BLOB. Maybe we need to stock up on fire extinguishers?


Did you notice THE BLOB only ate middle aged people and up? Leaving the world to angry teenagers. Hmmm....

I also noticed that the only way the blob was able to catch it's victims was when they were stricken with fear and fell down in front of him, which they seemed to do frequently.....I mean the only reason the nurse was absorbed was because she knocked the lamp off of the table and it wrapped around her legs.


Poor blob. That's kind of sad.
