   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  Spur-of-the-moment quiz: Go to the lobby, look at the pic on Dan Miller's post, and name the movie it came from...

   Rake King  If I let you keep doing that, then so will everyone else. From my point I'm doing all this work for simple movie titles...not much of quiz for the work involved.

   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  Hope ya'll will forgive my self-indulgence, but washing dishes around midnoght last night (wife and crew are outta town for the week ), Peter Brown's character in Laredo finally came to me--his Ranger name was Chad Everett. And Wolder's rich-Englishman character was Eric Hunter., that came to me this AM. Just had to do that...

   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  Added several titles to the John Wayne movies on Page 2, if anyone cares to look. BTW, my fave would probably be The Searchers. And I just thought of another one, Fighting Seabees. And was he in They were Expendable?

   Persecutor2  We could go on for a loooong time, I think--and that's not even counting all those "B" westerns he made before he got "big". Just thought of a couple more, Big Jim McClain, and the one where he played a college fottball coach, with Donna Reed as a social worker.

   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  Let me do a no-right-answer, just what do you remember one-- I can think of a few NFL football stars who played in non-sports movies--How many can you think of, with the player and the movie? I'll tell what I remember after the rest of you have a chance to respond.

   Persecutor2  Don't remember that one myself..I'll go ahead and list the ones i recall, anyone else can jump in too..
Merlin Olsen and Roman Gabriel were in "The Undefeated" with John Wayne and Rock Hudson. Fred Williamson starred in one of those 70's "blaxploitation" crime flicks, called "Hammer" (Fred's nickname on the Kansas City Chiefs was "the Hammer" ). Ben Davidson of the Oakland Raiders was in Conan the Barbarian with Arnold Schwarzenegger. And there was a stinker of a horror flick that got a lot of publicity in my hometown, Ft Worth, because the cast included several then-current Dallas Cowboys players, including John Niland and D D Lewis--it was called Horror High. If you count made-for-TV movies, Alex Karras was in one called "Hardcase" with Clint Walker and Stefanie Powers. Anyone think of any more?

   Balogreene  Terry Bradshaw recently did Failure to launch. Joe Namath did Some western, and one called Avalanche Train, Roosevelt Greier Also made movies. My problem is, it took all day, and reading your answers to remember this much. When I was much younger, and a huge football fan, I knew a lot of movies with players, not so much now.

   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  As long as Rake is taking a break, I have a trivia question. Elvis made several movies, bt to my knowledge he only made one where he didn't sing anything but the title song over the opening credits. What movie was that? And if I am wrong, someone please correct me.

   Persecutor2 posted on Movies & Reviews  Hmmmm--all-time fave movie. Almost threw in the towel on that one, i have too many "faves". But I think I'll settle on The Magnificent Seven, to me it has more repeatable lines and memorable individual scenes than any other movie I can think of. Cool Hand Luke runs a close second in that regard, but it's a bit of a downer.

   Linder  Our DIL and granddaughter have Indian blood...both are very, very, very light complected. Both have documentation from their Indian tribe that they are of a certain percentage Indian blood and are proud of their heritage. BTW, it didn't take an Ivy-League education to secure proof.

   Bettijo  Actually, we have Indian blood in my family. I don't know how many generations back was a Cherokee chief. At one time I knew his name. We can prove it as my father did a lot of research into his family history and has written records. Anyway, point of story, when my daughter was applying to colleges and there was a place to indicate if you were a minority, we talked about this in a joking sort of way. We never actually "considered" trying to claim minority status. We, too, have "high cheek bones" and my father had a very "Indian" nose. But, I like to think we did the right thing by being true to ourselves. "I have to live with myself and so, I want to be fit for myself to know."

   Bearman43  My son Tom does extensive genealogy work. One of my distant cousins says we have Cherokee blood, but so far we've not seen any proof.

On the other hand, I found this article on American Thinker. Take a look.

   Persecutor2 posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria  Gonna do a little chest-thumping too--Mentioned it on the mother site, my son just graduated from the two-year program at New Mexico Military Institute and was commissioned 2nd Lt. Two more years of school and he'll be 1st Lt. He got the highest male PT score award, graduated with high honors, and got the school's Douglas McArthur Award as the most "soldierly" graduating cadet. If I can pry loose some pics I'll share them. BTW, did I mention he has his jump wings?

   Eagle's Dominion  Well P2 this is the page where we came holler at the top of our lungs! ;- ) People that have no one in harms way or have never been in harm's way themselves cannot understand what we go through or what the families endure! After my son returned from his first deployment I actually called my mother and apologized for what I had put her through during Vietnam. LOL Congrats on your sons accomplishments!
