Re: THE MENS ROOM

This is fascinating stuff, I am glad I ventured into The Men's Room. I just couldn't resist, with a name like that! I think most women have an urge to find out what's behind that male-only stuff. The discussion here has been illuminating for me, a female, especially since I didn't know which of you ...

Here are some caps I made of Robert Dudley a long time ago, because you never know when you might need a Wienie King....

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Charliechaplinfan- I think Chaplin was very brave at a time when people were running for cover, hiding their heads in the sand... it took some guts for him to step up, put himself out there for the world to see and use the power that he had to say, "Enough is enough". He knew he was a targ...

Re: Bit Players We Love

Oh my gosh, I forgot to say how happy I am that you mentioned Charles Lane! He has always been a favorite, and was probably the first bit player I ever knew, since he showed up on nearly every TV show ever made. I cried the day he died.....he was like a friend of the family.

Re: Bit Players We Love

Oh, gosh, this is a dream topic! I agree with MissG - it's gotta have been a good thing. Some of us out here in the dark have noticed and remembered. Your story of Byron Foulger and Dorothy Adams reminded me of another couple, bit players (probably Foulger's name reminded me) Fritz Feld and Virginia...

Re: ,The Best Character Actors?

What does best really mean? Most versatile? Most able to move me emotionally? The actor or actress I most like to see? The one who can most easily steal a scene? In the end, after much thought, I picked actors who could actually make me cry at the same time that they make me laugh. Oscar Homolka Fel...

Re: Random thoughts on Butch and the Kid and the Wild Bunch

That was a great reply, Bryce, and I think we may actually agree on most of the movie, if I've read you right, for instance: The editing (and its subsequent effect) is a matter of taste but, like most of Peckinpah's editing technique, it has been diluted down to at best irrelevancy and at worst accu...

Re: Random thoughts on Butch and the Kid and the Wild Bunch

I agree wholeheartedly, knitwit45.

As I am working my way through Ben Johnson films, I feel panicked like I did when I read Jane Austen. I know there are only a finite number of movies to see and that I will run out of Ben Johnson sooner or later....

Re: Random thoughts on Butch and the Kid and the Wild Bunch

OK. I am apologizing before I post this. I hope I don't upset anyone here. I am trying to be honest about my reactions to this movie. I have gone back through my post and tried very hard to be fair in the way I looked at The Wild Bunch . There are only so many stories out there to be told. "The...
