   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  I've been trying to finish up Christmas shopping and my husband is always a challenge when I'm gift-selecting. But, a couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he would like to have an audiobook of the complete Bible. When we first married, we decided to jointly read the Bible all the way through. We got bogged down in Genesis's begats and went no further. But, I found this set (64 discs ) at Barnes and Noble, The NIV Audio Bible, Dramatized. Not just a reading, but different voices, different actors acting it all out. It gets good reviews and I think he will love it.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Just for fun. This was a Carmen Miranda hit and my mother loved to dance around the kitchen singing it. We've all seen the Miranda version. Maybe you can smile at Jerry Lewis?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He is one of only three male actors to win three Best Supporting Actor Oscars. He is often referred to as "one of those actors who was born old". Film historians and critics have long regarded him as one of the finest character actors in motion picture history. In all, he appeared in more than 230 film and television roles during a career that spanned nearly five decades. His range was enormous. He could play sophisticated businessmen, con artists, local yokels, cowhands and military officers with apparent equal ease. An accident in 1932 cost him most of his teeth, and he most often was seen in eccentric rural parts, often playing characters much older than his actual age. And he sang, too, having four Top 100 Singles. To later generations, he is probably best known for a long-running role in a big hit television series during the late 50's and early 60's.
Who was he?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  It was Spencer Tracy's last MGM film, after 20 years with the studio. Just before shooting began, an indecisive Spencer Tracy tried to back out of the picture. Weighed down by his growing alcoholism, Tracy refused to commit to the picture. In order to close the deal, an MGM executive contacted Tracy shortly before filming was to begin and said, "Don't worry, Mr. Tracy, a copy of the script has been sent to Alan Ladd and he has agreed to do the picture." The next day, Tracy committed to the film. Ladd, however, apparently never even saw the script. Five of the cast members won a total of eight Oscars.The projectionist's records have revealed that over the years this has become one of the most frequently shown films in the screening room of The White House.

What is this movie title?
