   Richdet  I am thinking "Swiss Family Robinson." I assume this is a production picture. When I click on it and enlarge it, the people seem to be crew members, going by the clothes (? ). If not, then I definitely have the wrong movie.

   Susannah  The Swiss family Robinson???

   StormCnter  Rich is right. The photo is labeled "set". Those are treehouses to die for, aren't they? Rich and Susannah can choose which tree each would like to climb in order to spend a nice nap in a hammock. As a kid, reading the that book, I envied the family. What an adventure!

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Good morning, good morning. Hooray to Susannah for her good quizzes and to all who participated. I'm going to check on Mei today and find out if all is well with her.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  From the "Movies so bad they're unmissable" list, here is a 1938 entry: "The Terror of Tiny Town"
This all-midget western was homaged by punk band The Dead Kennedys and in the M*A*S*H television series. A Poverty Row production from director Sam Newfield -- who made 14 other movies that year -- it's like a pint-sized version of Deadwood as evil little b*****d Bat Haines tries to steal love interest Nancy from heroic Buck Lawson by stirring up a clan war. Midgets walk into full-sized saloons and ride ponies and sing songs and do derring but the weirdest thing is how, given the conventional story and lack of normal-sized actors, you quickly adjust to the tiny cast.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  (1988 film ) A 12-year-old boy living in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, after being told he is too short for a carnival ride while attempting to impress an older girl, puts a coin into an unusual antique arcade fortune teller machine called Zoltar Speaks, and makes a wish. Zoltar dispenses a card stating "Your wish has been granted", but Josh is spooked to see the Zoltar machine has been unplugged the entire time.

   Surfhut  Big with Tom Hanks. I enjoyed this one. It was directed by Penny Marshall of Laverne & Shirley fame.

   StormCnter  Surf, when friends challenge Tom Hanks' acting ability, I point to this movie. He made me believe he was a 12-year-old boy in an adult body. Just watch him walk. It's exactly how a kid does it. You win the big piano keyboard from FAO Schwartz . Step lively to make a song.

   Surfhut  IMO, Tom Hanks is one of the most gifted actors of our time. His motion picture acting credits alone are impressive. Big, Castaway, Saving Private Ryan, DaVinci Code, Catch Me if You Can, The Terminal (a few of my favorites ). The first time I noticed him was on the TV show Bosom Buddies.

The piano keyboard dance from Big is one of my favorite scenes from the movie. Thank you for the gift! I'm a kid at heart and will be dancing on it every day. (Hope I don't break anything in the process. )

   Richdet  He is also very good in "Captain Phillips," a movie I saw for the first time just the other day.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Bull Meechum is a great fighter pilot -- so great that he gives himself a nickname. While his take-no-prisoners attitude and willingness to fight has served him well in the military, he's unable to turn it off at home.

   StormCnter  Iacta spots it. Yes, that's the movie, that's Duvall and the young guy is Michael O'Keefe. This book and movie made me sad. For his prize and since it's not yet 4:30 AM, I offer Iacta huevos rancheros for his breakfast.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Born in 1950, an English film and television actress who was categorized by inema writer Leslie Halliwell's rather terse summary of her career: "British leading lady, former child actress; usually typed as sexpot". In her early sexpot days, she was linked with Charles, Prince of Wales. She is perhaps best known for "Straw Dogs" and "Mandingo".

   StormCnter  Yup, Susan George. She pretty much disappeared after her marriage. I haven't seen her in anything in a long time. Susannah wins the sequinned evening bag Susan carried to dinner with Prince Charles.

   Susannah  At first glance I thought it was Julie Christie. A lot of the British beauties who came to fame in the late sixties and early seventies had the same sort of look: huge eyes, high cheekbones, shoulder-length hair with bangs, full mouths, and a kind of fragility. Sarah Miles comes to mind, too, and Susannah York.
