   NotaBene  Just came to this wall as I do every day and what a surprise! Quizzes are back! Thank you Mr. Rake King. I know it is a lot of work for you but take into consideration that you make a lot of people happy. I do not know much about movies and actors but I am learning a lot from your quizzes.

Viva Rake King!

   HopeandGlory  Hello Gram . . . I wish I could answer your Quiz, but at the moment it's not stirring any memories for me. I'm sure someone will be along soon who can answer it for you.

   Gram77  Rake sometimes gave hints so, this movie is based on a very famous book by a very famous writer, a lady writer.

   Rake King  When Gram throws out a quiz, it's an oldie...but by most critics one of Muni's best. WW provides an interesting aside about Charlie Chan's number one son.

I will also add an interesting point, many of the early day Chinese actors were used in World War II films playing Japanese soldiers, officers. While they resented their depictions, they did understand playing cruel Japanese did assist the war effort. This point concerns itself with B&W, 40's war movies, not later productions, such as Bridge on the River Kwai,where Japanese actors were used.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Got lucky at the library today. Got a new book that I couldn't decide whether to buy or hope I would sooner or later find at the library. The title is The Wives of Los Alamos by Tarashea Nesbitt. The husbands of these wives were scientists and recruited to work on the development of the atomic bomb. The wives knew nothing except that they were going to the desert. They would know nothing the entire time they lived there. In this book we are told what their lives were during those years.

   Balogreene  Gram, I spent several years in Albuquerque, South of Los Alamos. People my age, 60ish, who were born in Los Alamos, up until the '60s, have the address on their birth certificates listed as a PO Box in Santa Fe! No one knew Los Alamos existed. I've been there, it's a nice little town, with a huge airstrip, and really based around the labs, which still do top-secret research.

   Gram77 posted on Coffee Klatch  How did those white flags get on the Brooklyn Bridge with no one seeing anyone up there? Why were they left up for so long? Were these flags intended to mean something?

   Rake King  A white flag is a surrender instrument. With our President's helplessness concerning the downed jet, I think it is obvious what they meant.

   MeiDei  The scariest part is - if they can get up there undetected - some terrorist could just as easily gain access with a bomb that would cause havoc. The flags were either bleached or spray painted & the people were caught on tape. I fault the news for listing how it was done.

   Rake King  The news reports empty bleach bottles were found up top. To blank out the lights (while they did their deed ) they placed aluminum pots exactly the right size over the lights. That fact made the NYPD think it was an inside job, or by former contract workers who brought the right size. Video of them is in the hands of police, no further at this time.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Stupid question or maybe not. The sinking of The Lusitania was the beginning of the first world war, Pearl Harbor took us into the second world war. Is the downing of this plane going to take us into yet another war? I'll bet Rake and Wrightwinger have some excellent thoughts.

   Rake King  He is the king alright....King of Fund Raisers. As each day passes he becomes a lamer duck. The world is exploding around him, and what does he say..."well we may have to look at tougher sanctions". Can you believe that would be the reply of Reagan, Truman, to 295 people murdered by a bunch of thugs with their faces covered? Obama had better be careful or he will be drawing lines in the sand in New Jersey, or New York City.

   Rake King  My question is the World Court in the Hague, going to indict those masked thugs for murder, as they did the Serbian Generals and President. All the countries represented by the passengers and crew should demand the World Court take action.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  TV is rather blah tonight so I tuned in to a movie for TV. An actor appears in a scene and I'm thinking that he looks rather familiar and finally I realize it's Nick Nolte. He looks really bad and terribly old. Yet another actor that has made poor choices and has really messed up his life and career. So sad.

   Surfhut  I used to see him at the grocery store when I lived in SoCal. He was always drunk with dirty, matted hair, wearing hospital scrubs. Sad, indeed.

   Rake King  Nolte made a fool out of himself at an awards show where a tribute for Elia Kazan was taking place, and Nolte stood up and turned his back to the stage. Nolte later stated he did that in protest to Kazan's testimony before the U S Congress Unamerican Activities committee re some communists in Hollywood....60 YEARS AGO!, Kazan's legacy of great movie direction stands way above Nolte's talent and drunk life style.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Rake, please take a look at the posts below from your true friends. Don't let one person get in your way. You know I am one who stays out of stuff but.....you are a wise man and I'm betting you're heard the saying......pick your battles. Believe me this one isn't worth it. Take a breather and I see you in a few days.
