Re: A morning in the Western world

A war picture comes to mind but unsure which one. Unless it is "The Great Escape.""3 Godfathers" has a scene where a water tower scene where Ward Bond tries to head them off. Of course, there is the opening credits to "Petticoat Junction" which I always thought was a bi...

Re: A morning in the Western world

To April's point about TROOPER HOOK and THE STALKING MOON (see first post) and would agree that is really isn't a remake and also that the latter can be slow and without much of a soul to it. Aside from one scene where Peck invites Saint and the boy to join him in the meal and feel free to talk abou...

Re: Some less known Fredric March films worth seeing

I somehow missed the charm of "I Married A Witch." Having finally seen it I didn't find it all that funny. I'll agree with the nice marks for Kellaway and Benchley and I generally always like March. Fantasies generally aren't my cup of tea and this didn't do anything to change my mind. Ben...

Re: Gaslight (1940) vs. Gaslight (1944)

FInally saw the 1940 "Gaslight." As stated there is much to be said for Dickinson's direction. He moves the camera quite a bit and always very smoothly. The final tracking shot that ends at a street lamp is especially good. The set design is quite good too as the house is just covered in a...

Re: Our Family Album

Masha, you are the one I thought of as I posted. I knew that my impending situation would be ever so slight in comparison. It is an amazing story and one that certainly proves any situation is possible to overcome. All of you have shared stories that encourage me and those that will find this later....

Re: Our Family Album

Thanks. Good for you for overcoming your challenge. To me it is much more difficult than my upcoming road. I'm glad music helped. I've played the piano most of my life with an amateur's level but nonetheless have always found it quite a pleasant distraction. It has allowed me a very satisfying life ...

Re: Harold Lloyd

Am I missing something or is WELCOME DANGER pretty awful? A half silent half talkie originally almost three hours is badly dubbed and frankly just not funny. And I usually likehim very much.

Re: What are you listening to?

Last night was spent attending a concert with Karla Bonoff and Jimmy Webb, Both primarily songwriters who also sing, it was a night of wonderful music, great stories, and a new found fondness for Miss Bonoff. Having been in the business since the 70s it is easy to see why Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie R...
