Re: Merry Christmas and other holidays of the season!

The twelve days of Christmas used to be a big deal. By the way, they are from Christmas through Jan 5, NOt up to Christmas. Thus they are a clear reminder that we should really be kind to each other all the time and not just for one brief season as the year comes to a close. So, I, too, shall jump t...

Re: Robert Q. Lewis

Remember him well, including the fact that the "Q" doesn't stand for anything. He added it because there was already an actor named Robert Lewis. He only made a couple of movies, but did a lot of TV. You can learn a lot about him from imdb.com - here's the URL: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Great choices, RR. I'm sure they'll brighten the evenings, especially David Copperfield. I consider it the best cast classic of all time. It seems like every one of the actors was born to play that part.

Moira wrote "Hey, Lucky, what's not to love about the entrancing Peyton Place on Turkey Day? It's set in New England just like the Pilgrims were, wasn't it?" Yup, Moira. And we were responsible for the Salem Witch Trials, too. (At least we didn't eat the Indians for Thanksgiving dinner.)

Just one question: Did Doris or Howard keel the turkey?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Re: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Let me also thank you, Moira, for brightening the Holiday with humor suitable to the SSO. It's jumping the gun a bit (rather like the department stores), but your comment on " rather grisly or non-family fare movies being promoted as holiday fare for the Thanksgiving crowd!" reminded me of...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Thanks for the info, Kingrat. Haven't heard of either of these films and will certainly look them up. The blitz was a fascinating part of the war story, often lost, at least on this side of the pond, in favor of the activities that took place after we became directly involved.

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I put together a WWII double bill that I really enjoyed and think some of our members might find interesting, at least from an historical perspective. First up, The Boy from Stalingrad (1943 Columbia). Although 3 adult actors have small parts as Nazi officers and there are 11 extras playing German s...

Let's face it. The General is the ideal film to demonstrate to young people who won't even watch a film that isn't in color much less SILENT that we old folks know whereof we rant!

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Truly agree, Eric. It's an always-entertaining classic. All the more amazing when you consider when and how it was made. With all their computer graphics tricks, today's films are rarely entertaining on a second viewing. I don't think they're likely to still be watched 80 years from now.

Thanks for the kind words. Just though of another one from one of the most glamorous tramps, Elizabeth Taylor:

Re: Vote for Your Favorite Movie Quotes for the Banner

Couldn't agree more. In fact, I think it’s the great quotes in classics like My Man Godfrey that keep us going back to them over and over again. Of course, most of the quotable films are comedies, such as those you've mentioned and The Women , Some Like it Hot , The Philadelphia Story , The Producer...

Re: OUR FAVORITE TRAMP

Side thought. It’s amazing how many good “tramp” quotes there are. For example: “As long as they’ve got sidewalks, you’ve got a job.” (Footlight Parade) “It took more than one man to change my name to Shanghai Lily.” (Shanghai Express) “They hire girls like me to entertain the visiting exhibitor.” (...

Re: OUR FAVORITE TRAMP

Just realized we've been ignoring the most famous tramp of all, portrayed by both steamy seductress Joan Crawford and breathtakingly beautiful Rita Hayworth. She was, of course: On the isle of Pago Pago, land of palm trees, rice and sago, Where the fishermen to play go, and swim the natives in the n...

Re: Vote for Your Favorite Movie Quotes for the Banner

All this talk about Tramps lately leads me to suggest my favorite song quote for the Banner (and perhaps, to go with it, a spread of actresses who have played "loose women"):

"I hope, and I pray, for Hester to win just one more A."
