    Hi Kids

    Res ipsa loquitur. The title "speaks for itself". HaHa!

    High Noon, Rear Window
    Home Alone, Boys Town

    Born Yesterday, Born Free
    Cinderella Liberty, Annie Hall

    42nd Street, Billy Jack
    Double Indemnity, Alice Adams

    I'd like to see some of those old favorites again. Wouldn't you?

    Actually, I saw Alice Adams a few days ago for the first time on TCM. I enjoyed Katharine Hepburn but didn't care much for Fred MacMurray's performance. Interesting story. Alice reminded me of Hyacinth Bucket on the Brit comedy, Keeping Up Apprearances.

    Also saw To Each His Own, and enjoyed it too. Don't know if I'd seen it before but it did seem familiar. Then, a few days before, I saw Humphrey Bogart, Leslie Howard and Bette Davis in Petrified Forest. I thought Bette was really cute when she was young.

    Hi GB, I read a Bette Davis story recently in a biography of some other
    Hollywood notable. Can't remember which one. Maybe a director. Anyhoo
    an invited guest to a party called and asked if Bette Davis could come along.
    She was feeling lonely and neglected now that she was retired.

    So of course the host said yes. He was told to be sure to have a particular
    brand of Scotch or Brandy or some such for her. So Bette showed up and
    drank and drank and then launched into a diatribe about Hollywood and
    the terrible people she had worked with, etc. Is it a true story? No way to know.

    Well, let's see. You posted some I had on my list, so I will try to avoid

    Tom Sawyer, Sylvia Scarlett
    Broadway Melody, Mildred Pierce
    Baby Face, The Alamo

    The Intern, The Abyss
    Stella Dallas, Mr. Skeffington
    Mr. Belvedere, Mr. Roberts

    Mr. Deeds, Mr. Right

    Mr. Rock

    Hi GB

    You got a couple of my favorites in your list. The Women and Peter
    Pan. Am just about to watch a DVD from the Library: Promised Land.
    Stars are Matt Damon, Hal Holbrook and Frances McDormand. I think
    the last named was in Fargo. I always thought Fargo was an
    inappropriate name for a movie set in Minnesota. But of course I
    don't have the gift of the Hollywood vision of life and what not.

    The Women is a great comedy. Super Cast. I think the movie was
    about 8 or 9 decades old by the time I first saw it. The author
    (it was a play first) was Clare Booth Luce who married Henry Luce,
    the publisher of Time, Fortune and Look magazines. Clare eventually
    became an Ambassador and a politician. Her name still shows up
    in the crosswords.

    Joan Crawford never looked more beautiful than she did in The Women.

    Have you seen the list of gabby posters on the board recently? You and
    I are still at the top. Ta-da!

    Hi Chris

    Welcome to the board. Let me give you a quick tour. If you click on "Forums" at the top
    of the page, you can see the table of contents for the different boards. The porch, where
    "The Porchlight is On" is a thread with no topic. Folks just drop by and talk about what
    is going on with them. A good place to chat about kids, relatives, TV shows, movies,
    books, old music, new recipes, pets, pet peeves, etc.

    You can find the board rules at the top of the page (blue line). We avoid contentious
    topics like religion and politics. Click on "Shop" if you want info about supplements.
    "Supplement News" has reports about developments; research; etc. There is a tool bar
    at the top of box where you type messages. You can change the font, add color, etc.

    If you click on a poster's avatar, you can get some info and pull up posts from the past.

    I have CFS; very little energy; was born during the Roosevelt administration. Thank
    goodness I've kept my stunning good looks and sense of humor. Understandably, this
    board is my social life.

    Feel free to ask questions. There is usually somebody with helpful info.

    Nice list. At one point I was trying to think of Djanjo Unchained. I think I
    had it mixed up with some other movie.
