   MeiDei posted on Movies & Reviews  Not for the emotionally faint of heart, 'The Magdalene Sisters' is a pointed look at the lives of four Irish girls who were each raised in a strictly Roman Catholic manner. In what particular setting does the story unfold?

   Gram77  I have a guess. Does this take place (or was this place real ) in Dublin. This rings a bell for me and I don't know why. Laundries also come to mind. Can't wait to see the entire answer.

   MeiDei  It's been up long enough - Answer: An asylum
The four girls, Margaret, Rose, Bernadette and Crispina, have each been admitted to Magdalene Asylum, a place for 'fallen' young women. The film depicts the cruel treatment these young women are forced to endure, the friendships they are able to achieve and the means of their eventual departures from the asylum. This is a stark but important film document!

   Gram77  I think the things I was remembering was from a movie Judi Dench was in several years ago. Can't remember that title either but do you know if that movie was based on that very difficult life these girls were forced to endure?

   Mike PHX  Fatty Arbuckle. A pretty sordid tale that happened at the St Francis Hotel in San Francisco and ended his career. Unfortunately, it seems he was innocent of this particular deed.
But boy, did those silent stars know how to party.

   Mike PHX  Well..Orson Welles knew that WR Hearst had a mistress. Marion Davies. He was just like Citizen Kane.
Kane died with Rosebud on his lips.

   StormCnter  Go ahead, Mike. Rosebud was a what?
Anyone else visited San Simeon? Gorgeous place. I recommend a terrific book about WR Hearst, his profligacies and his eccentricities. "Citizen Hearst" by W. A. Swanberg.

   Mike PHX  OK, at the risk of being banned...
Somehow Welles found out that "Rosebud" was what Hearst called Marion Davies' ...err...lady part.
That's why Citizen Kane didn't do so well at the box office initially. Hearst was POd and had the critics of all his papers to either pan the movie or ignore it.

   StormCnter  Mary O'Hara wrote those books, apparently intended for children. They were "My Friend Flicka", "Thunderhead" and "Green Grass of Wyoming". Those stories remain favorites for me. In the book (I haven't seen the movie ), Ken's dad explains to him that the word "flicka" means "little girl" in Swedish. There was a series of early forties films based on these books. Roddy McDowell played Ken. For the 2006 movie "Flicka", O'Hara's teenaged Ken is changed to a girl.

   MeiDei  Yes & it gets ticklish here, one source said he served as a gunner w/Patton's forces but Wiki says he was a late comer to the war and was a radio operator/entertainer. Hate when that happens.

   MeiDei posted on Movies & Reviews  In the role that he was born to play, Jack Black practically soars as a washed-up loser, booted out of his own hard rock band, who seizes for himself a second lease on life by posing as a substitute teacher. Yes, I speak of 'School of Rock', one of the sleeper films of 2003. What is the name of Jack Black's excitable and rather unprincipled character in this risible cinematic treat?

   MeiDei  Dewey Finn

"Richard Linklater expertly directs this film that features largely a cast of pre-teens, many of them with little to no acting experience (but with plenty of musical talent ). Somehow, he manages to bring out their hidden acting talents, meshing them with Jack Black, who seems almost constantly energized. Also appearing are Joan Cusack, the stiff but sympathetic school principal, and Sarah Silverman, Dewey Finn's nemesis. Both are very good"!
