Thanks, Chris . . .

I really appreciated that review of The Wild Wild West. That was one of my favorite TV series when I was a wild, impressionable youngster -- I even got my parents to like it! Up till now, I've been afraid to revisit the series, fearing it might not be as good as I remember it. But now, I just might ...

Nah, baby, nah . . .

Elvis is dead, Alger Hiss was guilty, and Oswald acted alone. Abundant evidence supports all three of those assertions.

How about Cincinnati native Walter Connelly as Claudette Colbert's father in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT? I think he was the last sympathetic businessman in a Frank Capra film.

By the way, I got back $73 and change from the Feds, almost double what I normally get, thanks to the federal telephone excise tax rebate. That, and $35 from the state of Ohio, went right into my savings account.

However, I think I may need another suit for work in the coming months . . .

The Post Office isn't really part of the federal government. Well, yes and no. As an ex-letter carrier, let me try to explain. The US Post Office used to be a government agency -- and the offfice of Postmaster General was a cabinet post, appointed by the President -- until the Postal Reorganization...

Shucks, folks, I'm speechless!

Aw, thanks for the kind words, MR/Jack, Fernando, and Lynn! (Brushes tear from eye.) I would have said this earlier, but I forgot where I originally posted! It's good to be back among friends. Lynn, you probably know by now that my post on the holdings of the TCM library and others is being put to g...

Get it right the first time . . .

Here's the EXACT quotation: "When I see the worsening degeneracy in our politicians, our media, our educators, and our intelligentsia, I can’t help wondering if the day may yet come when the only thing that can save this country is a military coup." Sowell isn't advocating that solution. H...

More on Richard Dix . . .

Thanks for having me, Moira; also for "the use of the hall." That 1927 Liberty cover is from my own collection, which probably numbers close to 500 issues now. I have to confess, though, that I've seen little of Richard Dix prior to CIMARRON. His home studio, Paramount, has still not relea...

Stingaree or "Stinkeroo"?

Finally got to watch STINGAREE yesterday, and I loved it! Of course, I've been a big fan of Richard Dix and Irene Dunne from way back, so that helped. I loved both of them in CIMARRON, so I was really looking forward to this movie, and I wasn't disappointed. I never had trouble with Richard Dix's st...

Was clicking around the site before I registered just now. I really, really like it here -- I see a lot of the people I've gotten to know and respect on the TCM boards over the years, and I think this is going to be fun. I have to confess that I almost quit posting altogether with all the mud that w...
