Re: Films that made you cry

Films that make me cry? I don't mind admitting that the first motion picture I ever saw, Mary Poppins , has always made me cry, every time, during the scene where Jane Darwell is feeding the birds on the steps of St. Paul's and Julie Andrews is singing the 'tuppence a bag' song. I'm starting to cry ...

Re: Cartography

There's a site where you can create maps to show where you've been, but I can't get the image to show here. Anyway, the red shows where I've been in the States . And here's where I've been world-wide . It's a big world. Still so much to see... Thanks for the link to the World66 web site! I've creat...

Re: Your Movie 'Guilty Pleasures'

A couple of my 'guilty pleasure' movies are Wild in the Streets and Looking for Mr. Goodbar (which I wish would be released on DVD). :D :D

Re: The Quiet Man

Hello Miss G -- It was a great occupation, while it lasted. My handle is really an hommage to my 30s when I got to do a lot of travel, often without needing to work. [My favorite tours were in South America.] But for several years now I have been a working stiff, eeking out my living as a computer s...

Re: Paul Douglas Movies on TCM

I agree that Fourteen Hours is an excellent picture, as is Paul Douglas' performance. Richard Basehart was about ten years old for his character, but did well in his role, I think, as did Martin Gabel in his.

I don't know how many times I saw this picture durin...
