Re: Strange movies are appearing

I'm one of the few people who don't appreciate the films of Martin Scorsese. Who couldn't tell a story about people getting their brains blown out? What takes talent is NOT falling back on that. Have you seen Scorsese's film HUGO? This is simply amazing, one of the best that I've seen since the las...

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

While I wouldn't say it was awful there sure isn't much to recommend about it. Only if you're bored. That pretty much sums up BELLE OF THE YUKON. For years I needed to add to the list as I'm a completist when it comes to Randolph Scott. TCM aired it so I recorded it on my DVD recorder so that I may...

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

Thanks for the comment mrsl. It's such packaging that caused me to stop ordering from Deep Discount as I had a few things arrive with the DVD boxes rather banged up. It's like buying a new car and getting one that has little dents and nicks on it. I was at least able to confirm on a friend's PC that...

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

I just received the Randolph Scott Western Collection that's being promoted this month. A big buyer beware on this set - the site lists that the four films are on four discs. Wrong - there's only two discs (not "flippers") and at a $40.00 list, this is contemptible. Plus it was shipped in what could...

Re: Someone's having a birthday!

Thanks again one and all. Those pics from THE WALKING HILLS were a special treat and I can't wait for that Randolph Scott DVD set to be issued in December. Oh - the cake looks yummy, you may all have a slice. I need to share it too as not one goblin has rung my bell and I'm stuck with all this candy...

Re: Someone's having a birthday!

Aww, thank you kind people. Sorry that I didn't see this sooner, but Mother Nature decided to send me some germs for my b-day and I've spent much of the last two days in bed.

I appreciate the thoughts, it's good medicine.

Wow - funny that this is the first thread that I opened just five minutes after seeing Betty Garde on an episode of MR LUCKY along with Berry Kroeger and Ted De Corsia.

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

The color was a bit "off" as that was the nature of the Cinecolor process, a two-color process that tended to lean toward earth-tones and thus perhaps best used in westerns if it had to be used at all.
