   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1962 movie: John W. "Jack" Burns works as a roaming ranch hand much as the cowboys of the old West did, refusing to join modern society. He rejects much of modern technology, not even carrying any identification such as a driver's license or draft card. He can't provide an address because he just sleeps wherever he finds a place. After a violent barroom fight against a one-armed man in which he chooses to use only one arm himself, Burns is arrested. When the police decide to let him go, he deliberately punches a cop to get himself arrested.

   StormCnter  Well, the discussion isn't shown, but Midler is. I have been known to tangle my syntax.

   StormCnter posted on Main Page The Lobby  Y'll forgive me if this should have gone on a different wall. I didn't see one where it exactly fit, so it ends up here. This is a cartoon strip (too long to copy and paste ) about "How I Killed the Spider". I stole it from National Review Online. Enjoy!

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  She was an ardent Democrat who strongly supported the presidency of John F. Kennedy. During the 1940s when she was under contract with Warner Brothers, she was close friends with future president Ronald Reagan (whom at that point was a registered Democrat ) and later was a guest at his wedding to Nancy Reagan and babysat the couple's children. Upon Reagan's 1962 switch from Democrat to Republican, she was so livid by his decision that she ended her friendship with the Reagans via a handwritten letter informing them that she believed it was both inexcusable and unacceptable that Reagan would abandon the Democrat's in an election year. She never spoke to the Reagan family again for the rest of her life. Who was this English-born actress and director?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Movie trivia tidbit from 1962's "The Longest Day": During the filming of the landings at Omaha Beach, the American soldiers appearing as extras didn't want to jump off the landing craft into the water because they thought it would be too cold. Robert Mitchum, who played Gen. Norm Cota, was so disgusted with them that he jumped in first, at which point the soldiers had no choice but to follow his example.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1972 Sam Peckinpah-directed movie about a rodeo rider who is slightly "over the hill". He is first seen taping up his injuries after an unsuccessful ride on an ornery bull named Sunshine.
He returns home to Prescott, Arizona for the Independence Day parade and rodeo. When he arrives, the family home is being bulldozed by his younger brother Curly, an entrepreneur and real-estate developer, in order to build ranch homes.
