Re: October Schedule 2014

but William Conrad has a chance to shine as he "goes rogue" Isn't he wonderful in -30- ? He makes poor David Nelson look like a deer caught in the headlights. And slap me upside the head, but watching the clip from THE D.I. made me think of Barney Fife and Sgt. Carter ( GOMER PYLE, U.S.M....

There are a million of them, but to keep it simple, I'll join Moraldo in a HIS GIRL FRIDAY salute:

Walter, you're wonderful, in a loathsome sort of way.

Re: Crime on film and the Criminals that inspired the writing.

Saw this episode for the umpteenth time tonight and it still causes my jaw to drop.

Who said noir can't be funny?

Re: Fellini's Roma (1972)

I'd suggest starting with I VITELLONI (1953) to get a feel for the early, neo-realistic Fellini , followed by 8-1/2 (1963) because it falls into the dreaded "Oh, you really should see it" category. But you really should see it. There are several others worth viewing, but those two should g...

Ann B. Davis talks about The Keefe Brasselle Show and more here. It provides a couple of clues as to the love for Keefe.

Re: Favorite TV Shows

Why is swearing "realistic"? Is it because swearing actually occurs? Sure it does. But not swearing also occurs. I frequently go through days without hearing anyone swear (well, except on TV). I find it fascinating that we often think of things that generally are in poor taste (e.g., swear...
