No argument here...

Sorry to disappoint you, but you'll get no argument from me about this movie (and that's being generous calling it a movie!) I think I've finally found the cure for my insomnia! We're just over 35 minutes into it and I'm ready to pull the plug! I never used to pay a lot of attention to who directed ...

Favorite duos...

Any number of memorable romantic duos spring to mind and obviously there are too many to list. Let me just go with the first five that came to mind. I don't know why they headed the list but here they are: 1. Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh in GWTW 2. Leslie Howard and Olivia DeHavilland in GWTW 3. Cla...

Co-hosting duties...

Bring back Sydney Pollack (if he'll agree to it) as "The Essentials" co-host. He has an engaging personality, speaks very well and knows what he's talking about! He is a multiple Oscar winner, is he not? Like so many other ventures, it's hard to improve upon the original!

Left vs right? Liberal vs Conservative? Fiction vs Fact?

Hi Ken, I think you're absolutely correct in your observation. I think that those to the left of the political spectrum are probably more cynical by nature and mistrustful of the government than those to the right, those that once would have said "America, love it or leave it." It might be...

My two favorite "Screwball" comedies

Good evening everyone, My two favorite comedies are both the product of one twisted mind. One, which airs on TCM periodically is probably already considered a classic and the other will no doubt be considered among the best ever made once it has a few more years under its' belt. I'm sure it's alread...

John Hodiak...

Hi Ken, I'm not up on what studios produced/released what films and the movie I'm going to mention is from the 40's but not a noir by any means. It's not even a crime drama. Of all the films I've seen with John Hodiak, I think the best was "Lifeboat" which I think was an Alfred Hitchcock f...

The Nekked City

I don't know what all the fuss is about with regard to this movie. I found it slowly paced, even dragging at times. Maybe it's seeing Barry Fitzgerald, with, as he says in the movie, "28 years on the force" still sounding like he just stepped off the boat from Dublin that does it in for me...

Outbox vs Sent Mail

Can you tell me what the difference is between "Outbox" and "Sent Mail?" and is there a way to tell if a message you've sent has been received by the other party (in this case a message to pktrekgirl re: avatar.s)

Joan Leslie

Let's not forget Joan Leslie appearing as herself in "Hollywood Canteen" where she was the object of a young GI's affections. She struck me as an actress who didn't let her position go to her head and remained a "down to earth" sort of person. I'm surprised that she didn't achiev...

An Avatar request!

Hi there pktrekgirl,

Thanks for your assistance in maintaining the site. It's not unappreciated. How and where would I go to get an avatar and then how do I go about making it a part of my profile? Thanks.

Written on the Wind?

Whoa Nelly! Has there ever been a worse actor to "grace" the Silver Screen than Robert Stack? As Elliot Ness he was barely believable. In my considered opinion, he's not worth the light it takes reflecting off of him and into the camera's lens! And what a contrived, silly waste of film thi...
