Re: KC Barbeque

Chris! The majority of the south is an enigma to me. I have long wanted to take a barbeque tour though; encompassing the best barbeque joints in Texas, Kansas City, Memphis and North Carolina. Judith is right: we all go to New York. And I sampled more barbeque when I was there these past months, bu...

The interesting aspect of the filming of this scene, Fernando, is that -- according to Stephen Boyd -- Boyd knew of the gay subtext and played it accordingly, but Charlton Heston did not. No one told Heston about this facet of the characters. Don't you think it was meant to be played that way? That...

Chris, there's a whole language out there for fiber "addicts". The best one is when you refer to your "stash"...it's how much yarn you have waiting to be worked. Anne, I have been smoke-free for 15 years, and until I started knitting, I still had strong cravings for a cigarette. ...

Anne, as you might guess by my "handle", I took up knitting. It is supposed to be more stress-relieving than Yoga, and you have something to show for all your efforts. When you start, you really have to concentrate on what you're doing, and then gradually it becomes second nature. I teach ...

Summers were movie times for me. Sometimes my mom and I would watch movies starting around 10 in the morning and ending at midnight. Watching with her was so much fun, because she remembered so many things that had happened in her life at the same time of the movie we were watching. Since there were...

Fred MacMurray

I just found this thread, and hope I'm not back-spacing, but I wanted to share a memory. When I was about 9 or 10, my parents took us to California for a vacation. While there, thru a connection of my dad's, we got to have lunch in the commissary at Universal Studios. As I recall this, (about 50 yea...

Joe

Moira, I have to disagree about one of the "lesser" movies.. "Joe Versus the Volcano" is a fun, mindless entertainment for the summer. It gives a hint of the wonderful chemistry between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, and the exit line of hers sums up their whole relationship: "It's...

RE: Who Will Love My Children?

John, if this is the one I'm thinking of, is it with Ann-Margaret? Unless I've got my stories confused, she was nominated for an Emmy in that role, and lost to Barbara Stanwyck in Thornbirds. At her acceptance speech, Miss Stanwyck said thank you, but then said something to the effect that Ann-Marga...

The Painted Veil

Calling all experts! (which really means everyone on this board except me.) I DVR'd "The Painted Veil" when it was on recently, wanted to watch it again. I first saw this when The Divine One was "Star of the Month", and loved it. Is it my imagination, or was this recent showing a...

What a woman...both you and Connie!

Her duet with Judy was heartbreaking, and I loved every minute of it.

Thanks Moira, you are the best

Connie Gilchrist

Welcome home or back Moira. You've been missed! How about Connie Gilchrist? She's one of my favorites, I love her work in "Letter to Three Wives". When she and Thelma Ritter (another top of the list fave) are playing cards as the train roars thru, well, it's one of the best moments in the ...

Didn't W.C. Fields use that line in his movie as the Dentist?
