"If an artist paints a great picture, he may not get recognition while he lives, but his work lives on and inspires after he is gone...But an actor—he is soon forgotten. He does a good piece of work in one picture and if he doesn’t get a chance in another good part for six months, he is forgotten." -Ricardo Cortez

Re: Silverado . . . AGAIN

No. It could be very interesting. Clearly, he has feelings for her. Is it brotherly love or more? I think there is, at the very least, an intellectual love. On a level they "get" each other. If it had been a TV series it would be a real interesting part of the story line.

Re: Happy Anniversary!

We had a nice weekend with wonderful weather very much like the day we got married. A fine dinner and a quiet evening and looking forward to another year.

It was a lovely time. CA and I still talk about it. Thanks for all you have done from your blogs to snaring interesting people to come for visits to our playground. I am glad so many have stayed in touch.

Re: Robert Osborne Has Died - R.I.P.

Even when I recorded things to keep I always made sure I got his introduction. He was a guy who came to my house to visit and tell me things about movies. He took great joy in sharing what he knew. I appreciated the fact that he didn't pretend that some movies were good when they weren't. They were ...

Re: What recent films have you seen?

Watched "Philomena" starring Judi Dench. Based on a true story it is about an Irish woman who 50 years after her child was "sold" to an adoptive American family goes to find him. Heartbreaking at the core of it there is quite a bit of humor in it as Judi tries to fill a hole in h...

Re: LISTS

Yes, 1962 was a great year for movies. Most of the great ones, however, were non-English language. THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL (Luis Bunuel), all by itself, elevates the year. Add THE TRIAL OF JOAN OF ARC (Robert Bresson) and several others, and it is spectacular. But, for the English language movies, ...

Re: Return of a Pain in the neck

Nice that you are back. Being a hard ass helped you beat those things. You keep going and keep looking for those fans. All the while remember we are here, maybe not as often but still here.

Re: Silverado . . . AGAIN

Hi Anne: Completely agree. I refer to this as "The Kitchen Sink" western. About every plot in a western seems to be thrown in. I like the cast, Hunt and Brian Dennehy are particularly good. One thing I really like about it is the humor. Kline is given most of it and the fact that he is so ...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

Mr. O'Brien, it is great to have you back again. Thanks for coming. I recently saw Sylvia in an episode of "The Equalizer." Was quite surprised she turned up there even if it was a small role. She has a huge body of television work. For her was it a matter of just working and keeping herse...

Re: Our Family Album

Back at the end of June my family sold our insurance agency. My father had done this just three days short of 50 years and I was with him for 28 of those years. Business slowed and thought we needed to go now rather than later. The idea of finding something else to do worried me for months. Two days...
