   Richdet  Clint Walker, one of my boyhood favorites (and I assume a fave of many others ), star of "Cheyenne," has died at the age of 90. I just saw him in "The Dirty Dozen" on TCM this weekend. What a presence. And a good spirit.

Here is a link to an interesting obit (don't miss the CB DeMille story ) from one of the "trades":

   Richdet  I am also providing a link to the NY Times obit, which somewhat to my surprise is also a nice one with more detail about Clint Walker's life:

   Richdet  I just realized Clint died a week ago. Somehow this skipped my notice until this morning. My bad. But certainly his passing is worth noting on this wall.

   Richdet  Not sure I understand your posting, but if you are praying for StormCnter and MeiDei, I don't think you need worry. I have noticed that both ladies are certainly "active" on the main site, and in fact can be seen on the main page of The Connection with recent posts. They seem fine. Maybe they are taking a "time out" from the movie wall or have "moved on."

Or, to put it in Hollywood lingo (which seems appropriate on this wall ), maybe a case of "creative differences" or "amicable separation"? Hope this addresses your concerns. If you meant something else entirely, perhaps you can clarify.

   Tulsa  I had never seen 5 or 6 days with no activity. I prayed for everyone who comments here.

I noticed both Mei and Storm commented at Lucianne two days ago and Storm yesterday or today at the Connection Lobby.

Thank you, Richdet. I'm thankful everyone is well.

   Calvinesq  Thanks, Tulsa. Not sure the reasons, either. I'm hoping it's just a "time out" as Rich suggests. It is quiet.

   Gram77  Pretty sure we are looking at the 3 Stooges. I don't think I've ever known their real names.

   MeiDei  Yes indeed! A little background:
The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy team active from 1922 until 1970, best known for their 190 short subject films by Columbia Pictures that have been regularly airing on television since 1958. Their hallmark was physical farce and slapstick. In films, the stooges were commonly known by their actual first names. There were a total of six stooges over the act's run: Moe Howard and Larry Fine were mainstays throughout the ensemble's nearly fifty-year run and the pivotal "third Stooge" was played by Shemp Howard, Curly Howard, Joe Besser, and Curly Joe DeRita.

   MeiDei  2002 Title/Actors?
It is the fall of 1957. The Whitakers, the very picture of a suburban family, make their home in Hartford, Connecticut. Their daily existences are characterized by carefully observed family etiquette, social events, and an overall desire to keep up with the Joneses. Cathy Whitaker is the homemaker, wife and mother. Frank Whitaker is the breadwinner, husband and father. Together they have the perfect '50s life: healthy kids and social prominence. Then one night, Cathy discovers her husband's secret life and her tidy, insular world starts spinning out of control

   MeiDei  2005 - title? Actors?
Just as a successful cocaine dealer, who has earned a respected place among England's Mafia elite, eyes an early retirement from the business, big boss Jimmy Price hands down a tough assignment: find Charlotte Ryder, the missing rich princess daughter of Jimmy's old pal Edward, a powerful construction business player and gossip papers socialite. Complicating matters are two million pounds' worth of Grade A ecstasy, a brutal neo-Nazi sect and a whole series of double crossings.

You get to test all the layer cakes on the next "The Best British Bake Off" - color me green with envy. ; )

   Richdet  "Slap Shot" with Paul Newman. I remember enjoying this one when it first came out. That could be Michael Ontkean on the left, who was more of a tv show star, eventually a lead on "Twin Peaks." Not totally sure, but he looks familiar to me.
