   MeiDei  Boy, she has good genes, even her parents lived long lives though she has exceeded theirs. I hope she's alert and happy.

   StormCnter  Sounds like "San Andreas", which I am looking forward to.

   Susannah  Good guess, but it was "Volcano," starring Tommy Lee Jones.

   MeiDei  Deliverance?

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  What famous novel was made into a movie in 1926, 1949, 1974, 2000, 2013, and is now in development for a sixth re-make?
June 29 at 16:39 EST .

   StormCnter  I think I know, but I'll wait for someone else to answer. I didn't know they were remaking it.
June 29 at 17:39 EST .

   Gram77  Is this movie worth all these remakes or does it happen when new stars need a push. And.....what is so good about this movie that there have been so many remakes? Oh, I have not a clue to the movie. Can't wait.

   HopeandGlory  "Wuthering Heights," Maybe?

   Safetydude  What makes this novel so famous? I've tried to read it several times and have yet to read it to the end.

There were so many aspiring authors at that time, like Hemingway, A.E.Hotchner, Ford Maddox Ford, Gertrude Stein who were better writers.
I guess the opulent life style described in the novel makes everyone think 'I wish that were me'.
June 29 at 19:30 EST .

   Susannah  I think Safety Dude has it...The Great Gatsby. The prose is magnificent, but otherwise it's a dull story about silly people with stupid aspirations. That was Fitzgerald's problem; he was a great prose stylist who spent most of his energy writing about inconsequentials. I would, however, recommend his novella "The Rich Boy," which as far as I know has never been made into a movie. I could be wrong about that, but the novella is worth reading.

   Susannah posted on Suggested Reading  I'm reading Sally Bedell Smith's "Elizabeth the Queen." It covers a lot of familiar ground, but I did find out that the relationship between the Reagans and the royal family was a lot closer than I knew. Everyone knows how highly Thatcher and Reagan regarded each other, but I didn't know that Elizabeth and Nancy Reagan became such good friends, and that Princess Margaret and Nancy Reagan were very close. Princess Margaret wrote to Nancy several times a month for decades, apparently, and after her stroke when she could no longer communicate very well, Margaret had her secretary keep up the correspondence.

This probably is not the book for you if you believe Diana was a saint. Bedell, who has already written a bio of Diana, offers proof that Diana lied about her husband and the rest of the family. (To cut her some slack, Diana was mentally ill, and was ill before her marriage. ) But Bedell shows that Charles wasn't having an affair with Camilla, and only returned to Camilla after he discovered that Diana had already cheated on him with a bodyguard and then James Hewitt.

   StormCnter  I've read it, Susannah, and Sally Bedell Smith never disappoints. I've been fascinated with Elizabeth since she was a mere Princess. In sixth grade, I wrote an essay about her, using the only resources available in 1951 to a kid in rural Texas: my family's Encyclopedia Americana and Life magazine. At the same age, I devoured Marion Crawford's "The Little Princesses" and when Elizabeth was crowned, I watched her coronation on television. Secretly, however, I considered myself Princess Margaret Rose, whom I thought was much more exciting.

   MeiDei  i hadn't heard that Diana was mentally ill - only read the book written by her butler (? ) That tidbit has got to sting William & Harry.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  Iacta's mention of Dixie Carter got me thinking about other stunning, sexy, and witty brunette actresses, and I thought immediately of the late, lamented Suzanne Pleshette. And the late, lamented Anne Bancroft. Who else would fit that category?

   Susannah  Good picks. I was thinking of Mary Tyler Moore, too, but although she's a terrific actress and comedienne, she seems to lack the edge that Bancroft, Pleshette, and Carter had.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  He's played Mark Twain on stage and screen; Abraham Lincoln twice, in two different mini-series; and portrayed Preston Blair, an advisor to Lincoln, in the theatrical movie "Lincoln." Going from the sublime to the ridiculous, he played Deep Throat in "All the President's Men." At age 82, he was nominated for an Oscar, thereby becoming the oldest man to receive that accolade. At age 90, he's still working.

   Iacta alea est  Hal Holbrook....he was also the "bad guy" in the Dirty Harry flik 'Magnum Force'. He was also married to the late Dixie Carter....a lucky man.

   Susannah posted on Movies & Reviews  Born Ninian Joseph Yule, Jr., his show biz career started in vaudeville when he was only 17 months old. He was still acting in films and tv when he died at age 94. He was once considered for the part of Archie Bunker on "All in the Family." He was once married to Ava Gardner. The title of his first feature-length film, in 1927, was "Orchids and Ermine." Although lacking in matinee idol looks and stature, he was notoriously successful with women.

Who he?
