   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1960 speech quote: "'Republic'. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words give you a feeling. 'Republic' is one of those words that makes me tight in the throat - the same tightness a man gets when his baby takes his first step or his first baby shaves and makes his first sound like a man. Some words can give you a feeling that make your heart warm. 'Republic' is one of those words."

   MeiDei  You've really got my interest with this one! I'm guessing one of the men who frequent this wall will be the first to answer & I can't wait!

   StormCnter  I'll leave it just a bit longer. The film is famous, as is the speaker.

   Richdet  Has to be "The Alamo." Has to be John Wayne. You can hear the Wayne cadence built right into the speech. Nobody but him could deliver that. He played Davy Crockett.

   StormCnter  And, supposedly with this speech convinced Col. William B. Travis that Davy Crockett was no yahoo. Well done, Rich. You know, of course, a coonskin cap is on its way.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He was the first actor ever asked to guest-host "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962 ). Before him, only comedians had been invited. His first guest was his ex-wife , to whom he hadn't spoken in over six years after a very bitter divorce. Who was he? And maybe you know who was she?

   StormCnter  Ok, additional hint. The gal was known for the phrase "sock it to me!".
7 hours ago .

   Richdet  Well that hint worked for me. You are looking then for Burt Reynolds. Miss "sock it to me" was a brunette Brit, whose name I have forgotten.

   StormCnter  Judy Carne. I didn't think Burt would take so long to get recognized. You are awarded, Rich, a smooch and a hug from Loni Anderson.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  (1911-1998 ) She was often dubbed "Ireland's first film star". She was a favorite of Irving Thalberg and Louis B. Mayer at MGM and they had big plans for her as a big star. Thalberg's sudden death at age 37 of pneumonia in 1936 put a big damper on the momentum in her pursuit of stardom and was soon relegated to romantic interest roles. She said about her most famous co-star: "An amiable piece of beefcake; a likeable, overgrown child."

   StormCnter  Maureen O'Sullivan, Mia's mom, John Farrow's wife (and Tarzan's pretend wife ) and mother of five. Her statement was about Johnny Weissmuller, who according to stories mooned after O'Sullivan for years.

   Richdet  Little-known piece of trivia: Maureen and Vivien Leigh were classmates at a convent school in London as girls. Legend has it that a few years later young Vivien, with dreamy fantasies of becoming an actress, went to the cinema one day and, to her amazement, there was her old pal Maureen on the screen starring in a Hollywood MGM movie. That did it. Vivien reasoned if Maureen could make it in the movies, so could she. After all, she was much prettier.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  I read a review of this film in yesterday's Wall Street Journal. It sounds intriguing. The film stars Streep and her real-life look-alike daughter:

"Meryl Streep stars as Ricki Rendazzo, a guitar heroine who made a world of mistakes as she followed her dreams of rock-and-roll stardom. Returning home, Ricki gets a shot at redemption and a chance to make things right as she faces the music with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer; Rick Springfield, portraying a Flash member in love with Ricki; Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband; and Audra McDonald as Kline’s new wife."

Maybe you'll enjoy the trailer:

   MeiDei  This one reminds me of Mamma Mia ala rock & roll.
14 hours ago .

   Richdet  Well if that's so, my doctors will forbid me to get near this one. I have never fully recovered from the spectacle of Streep the free spirit galumphing around in Mamma Mia. Shudder.

Another deterrent: the daughter. The Mamie Gummer. Streep's mini-me (mini-Mamie? ). To be fair, she is acceptable as Halle Berry's rival/adversary on "Extant." But that's only because I expect Halle to demolish her on some future episode, and I don't want to miss that.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He's prominently featured in any list of top character actors. Who is he?

   Iacta alea est  Steve Buscemi
Yesterday at 17:05 EST .

   StormCnter  Yes! Tidbit about Buscemi: He was a New York City firefighter from 1980 to 1984, with Engine Company No. 55, in the Little Italy section of New York. He showed up at his old firehouse the day after the 9/11 attacks in New York to volunteer, working twelve-hour shifts for a week, and digging through rubble looking for missing firefighters.
Iacta wins a ride on an FD ladder truck the next time it leaves his local firehouse.
