Hello, I don't know about shows I watch having no redeeming value, but I will tell you about some television things I would not admit watching to anybody...face to face. Would you believe? Several years ago, I would rush home from work to catch that heroic and literate Jack Russell Terrier... Wishbo...

Talking about Gloria Grahame...have you watched her in the film The Man Who Never Was (1956)? The movie is a dramatization of a bit of real World War II history...not film noir. The reason I am asking is...Ms. Grahame looks odd in this film. I mean, her face is shiny. No one else in the movie has a ...

Capote and High Fidelity

Capote is good not only because of the terrific performance by Philip Seymour Hoffmann, but also the movie lacks the "kitchen sink" approach to plot. I like the fact screenwriter Dan Futterman stayed focused on the relationship between Truman Capote and Perry Smith. Capote could have so easily stra...

Please think about purchasing Ealing Studios movies on dvd.

Hello, IMDB lists about 95 Ealing Studios movies, released from 1939 to 1959. You know how many Ealing movies are on dvd (Region 1)? Not many...maybe, twenty.

I found Whit...he's in Indiana.

Hello, Last night, I watched The Desperate Hours (1955)...starring Humphrey Bogart. During the opening credit roll, I noticed Whit Bissell as a cast member. I said to my wife, "Whit Bissell". Probably because I only said the name, "Whit Bissell"...she replied, "what the heck are you talking about". ...
