Board-O, don't know what it is, but trains in film often make for good bedfellows. Wink

I see Hackman often around town. He still even at his age has an edge about him. The word gravitas always comes to mind when we bump into him.

The classic 1952 or the 1990 remake by hack Peter Hyams?
The Lady Vanishes
Shop Around the Corner
The Rope

--All great old time flicks. Thanks all for the recs

The Salvation: Western flick starring Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen (also in "The Hunt" which is one of my favorite movies of the year so far). Fantastic flick. I put this in the same league as "The Unforgiven"

I'm assuming "The Rope" is Rope. Many don't know that Hitchcock tried the the long take experiment again in his next film Under Capricorn. Though starring Joseph Cotton and Ingrid Bergman it's probably in the bottom five of Hitchcock's films. Though even with his worst films there's always something to see.

"Rope" is was

and not one of my finer movie watching experiences, but just got done watching "Unfriended" on a flight. Paranormal social media flick meant for the college crowd. Mildly amusing at a time when I have nothing better to do

There are many others, this was a list from a quick scan of my itunes!


That's a nice list. I've seen most of those (recently watched Rear Window in the last 2 weeks actually) but have now put 5 more onto my list

Doesn't he live in Taos?

TOM, the remake. Didn't know there was an original.

Board-O, he lives in Santa Fe. His wife owns a high end retail store, and he is around the stables from time to time.
Double Indemnity: fantastic flick. Love the film noir dialogue and seeing Fred MacMurray in role other than My Three Sons!

Often Edgar G. Robinson is only known for his gangster roles (of which the seminal Little Caesar is on TCM Sunday 3:15am EDT), however as this move shows he was often just a wonderful actor. Other standout roles are in Orson Welles' The Stranger the devastating All My Sons. He was also one the top art collectors from the "Golden Age

I knew there was one in Paris, but Rome? The director Steno (!) 80 directing credits and I've never heard of him. Where do you find these freaking things?

I also watched the third The Hobbit movie, but it was so bad I was too ashamed to mention it.

Stopped 35 minutes into the first one. Really should have been a single 2 1/2 hour film, but Jackson's head exploded.

He did seem pretty natural on screen, not forced. We liked it as well.

He was indeed. I think he and Vincent Price owned an art gallery at one time.

Price studied art history at Yale and was very learned in the arts in general.

Price was also a very good amateur chef. I had an often-used copy of his excellent cookbook for years, but lost it when a friend borrowed and accidentally ruined it (fell into sink with dirty water, and replacement could not be found). The book had lots of anecdotes about himself and his travels, in addition to the recipes. He was a true bon vivant.

Seaquam,

If it's the same book (A Treasury of Great Recipes), the 50th Anniversary Edition is scheduled for release September 16.
