I only knew about the set because I've rented some from Netflix. I've seen "Whiskey Galore" (you almost need an interpreter but it's a nice film) and "Passport To Pimlico" (lovely idea but not as much fun as I remember it) and I'm waiting on "The Titfield Thunderbolt." I thought it was a miracle whe...

Hollis: Jon answered this in another thread so you might look around. From what I remember the Outbox is where the mail is waiting to be picked up ny the person receiving it. While there you can make changes to it. Once the receiver picks it up it is not available for modification. This makes it "se...

Yes. At some point they have said all there is to say. It is not to lessen the importance of the event but how many times can you say the same thing. They can go away and come back unless something else is worth interrupting The most annoying thing, for me, is the incessant showing of the same video...

Whether it's the best or not I'll leave to all of you but my favorite soundtrack is John Barry's "Dances With Wolves." I love the way he writes.

Anne: I think the Audie Murphy version is running on the Westerns channel or Retroplex this month. I saw it listed once but am unsure about future showings. I never could understand the fascination with Dietrich's voice. Wasn't there an affair with Stewart and Dietrich? They seem an odd pair in real...

They are wonderful. Such talent. People tell me I have lovely handwriting (for a guy) but I can't draw worth anything.

They really are very good.

Have you seen "Midnight"? JB stars with Claudette Colbert and Don Ameche. It's quite funny but it hasn't been on in awhile and I don't think it's on DVD.

So, why did I bring it up? Just in case.

Absolutely, right down to the brothers. Bruce Dern could be an idiot version of Ike Clanton. How many comedies actually have a killing in them? A few but not many. Seeing Garner sitting out on the porch of the Sheriff's office with his foot on the rail also reminds of Fonda and the post in "Clementi...

I love the line in "Sheriff" when during the mud fight Hackett says to Garner "Do you want to grab something?" And he replies "Everything looks to slippery."

I mentioned it "over there" - Who would have that Jack Elam could be funny?

Re: Music Mad Members?

Have you heard his contributions to the John Williams score for Memoirs of a Geisha ? While I was thinking about Joshua Bell's escapade, I was wondering if the charismatic and more famous Itzhak Perlman would've gone unnoticed by passersby in the subway. I also amused myself by wondering if the not...

I know it was a few years later but you could apply your question to the entire movie "Miracle At Morgan's Creek." The idea of a young marrying someone from a party, getting pregnant, can't remember her husband's name, throw in bank robbery, a jail break and talk of suicide it's a wonder, for that d...

Can I get one reduced? Yes...but I'm gonna want to balance the color in that one also. Do you think it might be possible to get a better quality copy of that photo. It would look tons better if we could! :wink: Otherwise I can cut that one down and play around with the color balance some. Is this b...

Moira:

I assume your fondness of classical music goes beyond Mr. Bell. I am a fan of classical music as well. My most memborable night as a concert attendee was watching Yo Yo Ma play Elgar's Cello Concerto. I was in the 5th row.

Now we have more things we can talk about.

It's been years for me too. I probably saw it on AMC. I remember it fondly though.
