   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I think the picture of Karen Black is the movie Airport 75. I'm fairly sure she was not in the original Airport.
June 27 at 16:24 EST .



   StormCnter  Yes, you are right and "Airport75" is the one described in the quiz question. I just forgot to add the "75" when I told you and Mei you won prizes. The movie "Airport" was made in 1970.

   StormCnter  Just for fun, since you mentioned that movie, here is a trailer for 1970's "Airport". It's not the official trailer, but is better.

   Gram77  Don't mean to nit pick. And thanks for the trailer. Another movie I have seen so much I can speak right along the actors.

   StormCnter  I enjoyed watching Van Heflin in that trailer. He was always one of my favorites. Maybe I'll look for another Van Heflin movie to post.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Nothing really important except it's been a irritating day. Anyway, I got lucky and checked out Sundance this afternoon and watched Midnight Run. Forgot how funny that was. Perked me up.

   StormCnter  I agree that "Midnight Run" is a fun film and probably perfect to distract the viewer from an irritating day. Good on ya, Gram.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  One of you folks saw Jurassic World. What was it like?
June 22 at 10:09 EST .



   StormCnter  I did, Gram. I took my daughter in law and the two 13-year-old granddaughters. We all loved it. The story is completely unbelievable, of course, but that's what science fiction gives u. We didn't see the 3-D version because that theater was sold out. I suspect it would be even better in 3-D. One of the granddaughters remained fairly terrified all the way through. Go see it. You'll be glad you did.
BTW: We also saw the previews for "The Martian". Remember that book?
June 22 at 10:43 EST .


   Gram77  Hot dog......The Martian. I sincerely hope they remain true to the book. I always say that and Hollywood always "tinkers" with the good stuff.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Some time back the movie The Homesman was shown here to be identified. Whoever posted it also mentioned that this movie was a book. I found it on Amazon for 42 cents and the book is quite good. Thanks to who ever posted the movie.

   StormCnter  That would be moi! Never let it be said that I hide my light. [grin]
I've got the book on my order list. I'm glad you are liking it.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  This is great! First thing I did was grab paper and pencil and make a list. Saturday is library day for me even if I already have a book (or books ) in the house. Thanks!!

   BirdsNest  It seems it is easier to hit the "like" than it is to leave even a tiny comment.

   Gerty  I'm inclined to believe that there is so much bad news out there that many people get mired down. What's going on out there is discouraging! Up is down and down is up! I don't know about others, but it wears me out...leaving little time for down to earth people.

That does not say that I don't appreciate all you guys for bringing a bit of "nice" into my days.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Good morning all. Couldn't sleep so checked out movies. If you had offered a million dollars to identify Gabby Hayes I still would have never got it. What a difference a beard made!

   StormCnter  Isn't that photo something, Gram? The odd thing (or maybe not odd ) about our perception of Gabby Hayes is that he was what we saw on screen in the cowboy films, funny, not too smart, a little bit grimy. But, in real life, he was educated and erudite. He had retired at age 40 from the business world, but lost everything in the '29 crash. His wife persuaded him to move to California and he found a niche in westerns. He didn't learn to ride a horse until he was 50. I love the story.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I am a little more than half way through James Grippondo's new book Cane and Abe. Very good.

   Gram77  Apparently I was mistaken about the newness of Grippondo's book mentioned above. I just finished checking our a site called "bookreporter" and found that this author has a book coming out on June 2 entitled Cash Landing. This site gives pretty good reviews and the book sounds interesting. ANYWAY I posted because this because the Suggested Reading site does not seem to be visited as often as it once was. I love reading and like to read many different kinds of books; things from history/war, memoirs, explorers, mystery, and silly stuff, Stephnie Plum being one. I know there are well educated folks here. Could we pep up this site a bit? Hope I am not butting in where I don't belong.

   StormCnter  I agree, Gram. Too many of us fail to visit some of the Walls that we would enjoy and where we might be able to contribute. So, let me offer something a little different for discussion. One of my 13 year old granddaughters is an avid reader and will tackle anything. She enjoys fiction but has trouble locating the books she might like. She resists any book labeled or referenced as "young adult", thinking it will be "babyish". You and I know better. Anyway, over this last weekend, I gathered up a group of books from my shelves to send home with her. See what you think of my list: "Jaws", "The Shining" (we had watched the movie on Saturday and I wanted her to see the differences between the book and the movie ), "How to Build a Girl", "Cold Sassy Tree", "Empire of the Summer Moon" (I told her if she read it and liked it, I would take her to the little fort where Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped ), "The Moonflower Vine", "The Reivers".

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Was at Sam's Club yesterday just wandering around when suddenly a cart scrapes along my entire left side, scratching my arm. I jumped, looked to my left and a lady gave me a rather blank look and said, "oh, sorry" and kept going. What is happening to our world?

   Balogreene  Americans and some Europeans tend to have space issues. We like lots of it. Many other countries have cultures of getting close and up front. I get so upset when people invade my space, as Gram's offender obviously did. My problem, I would have yelled at them!

   Safetydude  Not just Europeans, Balo...
Latin America and Mexico is just as bad.
And the NYC subway or the Metro in Paris or the Underground in London. Except for the smell and language 'your space' doesn't exist. I've not been to Tokyo, where as I understand it, it's even worse.
