Re: My Dad's Favorite Pin-up
In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Jane Russell stole the show from Marilyn Monroe - no small feat.


You can have brevity and clarify, or you can have accuracy and detail, but you can't easily have both. --Percy

Re: So long Ernie
Great movie, The Wild Bunch, with Ben Johnson, Warren Oates and William Holden. But I remember him best in McHale's Navy with Tim Conway.

Re: Neil Armstrong - my hero
I remember John Glenn, you young whippersnappers.

I remember Walter Cronkite discussing the thickness of the dust on the moon's surface. I watched the landing on a 12-inch black-and-white TV and heard the immortal words live - though there was some question what the words actually were.

Roger Ebert wrote the screenplays for a couple of soft-porn movies, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and Benath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens. At least he was human.

Re: RIP Lauren Bacall
If she had been in Casablanca instead of Bergman, Rick would have kept her and we would have lost the war.

That's why we have his thread. If they didn't have that effect, they wouldn't be great.

(I have to keep checking this thread to see if I'm dead yet - and if I'm great enough for anybody to notice. )

Old rocks never die. They just erode away.

Re: RIp Mareeen OHara
I always think of Maureen O'Hara as John Wayne's wife. They had a strained marriage in Rio Grande, Big Jake, McLintock! and probably some other movies that don't immediately come to mind. Anybody who can tame the Duke is all right.

Tame the Duke? I recall Wayne spanking Ms. O'Hara in McLintock.


True, but that was just his way of giving in. Otherwise, she would have left again. She wanted him to want her.

The Godfather did leave his fate ambiguous. No gun, no cannolis.
