   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  TCM showed a movie I haven't seen in years. The Inn Of The Sixth Happiness. Something interesting was added at the end. The person hosting the show for today said that the missionary the movie was about was furious at how much there was wrong in her story and threatened a lawsuit. I need to look up all this. Sounds interesting.

   MeiDei  You sparked curiosity here; check out the 2 paragraphs in the "historical Accuracy" section: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Inn_of
_the_Sixth_Happiness

hanks for mentioning it.

   Gram77  Thanks, Mei. It seems that Hollywood, as it often does, dressed up some of the real story. The article you posted was most helpful.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Stumbled across a nice little movie that I don't even remember being advertised. It was We Bought A Zoo. It was a feel good story and the little girl was really cute.

   MeiDei  I watched that last month or so and did a quiz on it a few days after. Glad you liked it. The ending left room for a sequel.

   StormCnter  I didn't, Gram, but I looked it up on Goodreads. Sounds like a gamble, but sometimes a gamble pays off.

   Gram77  Another question, Storm. Do you read Stephen Hunter? I used to but over the years as I check out books I sort of moved away from him. I was on Bookreporter and see that he has a new book out; G-Man. Sounds interesting.

   StormCnter  I'm pretty sure I've read one or two of the Hunter books. Have you ever read any of James Lee Burke, Gram?

   Gram77  Yes, I have read several of his books. Nothing wrong with him, just something about his books that don't hit me. I have a friend who has read all his books. Just a matter of taste I guess.

   StormCnter  I think, with Burke, it's a matter of setting. Most of his are set in South Louisiana, which is familiar territory to me. I know the location names he uses and recognize the atmosphere he describes. His daughter, Alafair Burke, has written some humdingers in the suspense field.

   StormCnter  I did and I was impacted by the story. I believe Mei has read it also.

   MeiDei  It would have been a daily preview in a week's time if I read it - can't comment. My friend read it and I believe she was glad she did.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Just read the last page of Only Killers and Thieves. I had hoped for a different ending, but it was the only ending there could have been. Now on to Sue Grafton's last book before her death.

   Safetydude  I never understood him or what he did or why he had achieved movie star celebrity status.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Several of us gals saw I, Tonya today. Not bad. Allison Janney did a very good job. Most of us know this story but it did show how tough Tonya's life was. There was very little kindness in her young life.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  About the Selick and Roy thing.. In Quigley Down Under, a character called Crazy Cora was a bit disturbed and she kept calling Selick Roy, thinking he was her husband. Sorry for my dumb error.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Good morning all. A friend sent me a little something along with a lovely personal message. The "little something" is called Little White Lies. It goes as follows, Little White Lies: One Size Fits All...You Haven't Changed A Bit...You May Experience Some Mild Discomfort...I'm Sure It Won't Stain and best of all, You Carry It Well. : )

   Bettijo  My father used to say your conscious is like a sharp triangle in your chest. The first few times you lie, it turns slightly and hurts. If you keep lying, it creates a grove so that eventually when it turns you feel no pain.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  While waiting for my turn to pick up Fire and Fury I am reading Only Killers and Thieves by Paul Howarth. The background is Australia in the 1800s, a country I have always been very interested in.

   StormCnter  Gram, I'll look for that one. I am fascinated by Australia and it was always on my now defunct bucket list.
