Re: Solar Eclipse?

Edmund : I am thinking, brother, of a prediction I read this other day, what should follow these eclipses. Edgar : Do you busy yourself with that? Edmund : I promise you, the effects he writes of succeed unhappily: as of unnaturalness between the child and the parent; death, dearth, dissolutions of...

Re: Noir Alley

I liked Nancy Coleman. She was not spectacular, not even that good but not that bad either. I had never seen her before and at least she was a fresh face who was certainly passable. The final scenes were more that terrible. This was a B movie right? Everybody wanted to know who Mr. X was. I was wait...

Re: Films that made you cry

About 35 years ago, I made the "mistake" of telling a group of buddies, we were milling about after some meeting or ruther, that Dumbo made me cry. Man, did they get on my case, or what! Some razzing, but it was okay, I was a little defensive but feelings were not all that hurt. Then, some...

Re: MUSINGS, PONDERINGS, RUMINATIONS AND FANCIES

Anyone feel the earthquake? My building shook. I didn't because I am in San Diego. Yeah, haha. We are still waiting for the Big One. If it's going to happen in my lifetime it had better hurry. Maybe I'll be floating in the Pacific ere I shuffle off this mortal coil. Were you in NYC when a hurricane...

Re: Noir Alley

I wish Fred MacMurray had done more drama. Really good screen presence, loved that chiseled jaw, clipped speech, and piercing eyes ... and great inscrutability, now wonder it took them so long to catch up with him. Eddie's remark about vulnerability with regard to Kim made me think of Marilyn. They...

Re: Noir Alley

Last Night Noir Alley was Pushover. I've seen the film before but never heard Eddie discuss it. I was somewhat surprised how much he praised the film.

Re: SPOILERS!

These clues seem somewhat convoluted. Maybe some lucidity will be forthcoming. I have enough trouble even when the clues are concrete, lol.
