Re: ROBERT MONTGOMERY Presents...

That's an amazing story! I've got a copy of Wind Sand and Stars floating around here somewhere, you all made me want to go read it over again. His words just ring with beauty and soul. I have always had the dream of adventure, and when I can, I look to Saint Exupery to guide me. It's too bad that so...

Now, see? That is the difference. Here, things are explained to us in a forthright and direct manner. I gotta tell you, I really appreciate it.

Re: An Afternoon with Dobe Carey and family

Lynn, I just realized I didn't respond to the most interesting part of your post.... that THE SEARCHERS was made in 28 days! Now, I would have a hard time believing that any movie could be made in 28 days, but a film like Wagon Master or maybe Rio Grande being made in that amount of time wouldn't su...

Re: An Afternoon with Dobe Carey and family

Great article! I love the way he writes, he's very down to earth, and gets right to the point. He writes like I would assume he speaks... Again, like in his book, he gets this story across, while remaining respectful of his subjects. Respect of elders and co-workers is so rare nowadays, it seems qui...

Re: I hereby organize the first SSO World Congress.

You worked in a bank too, well they are the same here too. Business speak I hate it! Ha! Yes, it's awful, isn't it? I worked there for thirteen years. We started out as a friendly, neighborhood bank, and eventually the bosses decided they had to compete with the big banks, so the use of jargon got ...

Re: The White Sister (1923)

Ollie, thanks for starting the thread... I am very excited to see this movie. I have only seen photos from it long ago in a beautiful Gish sisters book that belonged to my own sister. All this information only makes me want to see it more. I also believe this is going to be the restored version with...

Lynn, I am so envious! Thanks for reporting on your "picnic" with Mr. Pennell and friends..... It sounds awesome. I just finished Mr. Carey, Jr.'s book, The Company of Heroes yesterday, after getting it on inter-library loan. It was so good, I regret that I did not buy it in the first plac...

Re: THE CRAZY MOTHER THREAD

Looks like we might have to start a crazy dad thread.... My mom was really cool. She had her moments, but don't we all? My dad, on the other hand, was/is a control freak with the brain of an Einstein and little or no social skills. In his mind, family are the people you make fun of most.... However,...

Re: MEMORIAL DAY

I find that there are no words adequate enough to thank you for your service to all of us and to this country.

So I will just say thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

"We must service the customer"

This phrase was used countless times when I worked at the bank. It made me want to laugh every time someone would say it.

What happened to serving the customer?

One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies..... I love little harp glissando as Godfrey shoos away the "pixies". I like how you can hear Brady giggling occasionally as Godfrey leaves, and then all the way down the stairs....

I went on a bit when the TCM boards went down.... oh, yeah.... they are still down..... I still don't know who half the people are who are asking to be my friend, or what happens when they become your friend. Do I go for quantity, or quality? Perhaps I should just try and get EVERYONE to be my frien...

Re: THE CRAZY MOTHER THREAD

Hey, Bronxie, it's so much fun to hear from your mum again! "Was she still alive when the movie was made?"... DOH!

Sometimes I picture you as Edgar Kennedy, king of the "slow burn" ..
