   MeiDei  1967 movie - from this description can you name it?
"An armed forces major is assigned to take a special unit of ninety men across the desert of Libya to destroy military supplies in (_____ ) during the second World War. To avoid confrontation with enemy forces occupying the territory, they must disguise themselves as German soldiers escorting prisoners of war".

   MeiDei  OK I was inspired reading the military wall, saw Tobruk & remembered there was a movie made - not surprised you knew this one straight away! Nicely done naming the actors too.

   StormCnter  Some time back, I said I had never seen a disappointing Robert Duvall movie. I have now.
I ordered the DVD of "Wild Horses" because it was consistently unavailable on OnDemand. I wasted my $29.95. The movie is just terrible. After we watched it, I did a little internet research and found a NY Times review calling the plot "incoherent". That is being kind. It's impossible to follow exactly who is doing what and in the final scene, my husband and I are still arguing on exactly which three characters were in it. Stay away from this film. Even the title bears no resemblance to the movie.

   StormCnter  I found this link on a Movie Lists site. "200 Movies to See Before You Die". It's pretty interesting to compare the list with movies we might have seen and might (or might not ) have loved. I've never seen some of them. I avoid Woody Allen movies, some war films (Private Ryan, Apocalypse Now ) and anything about the Beatles is a generation too young for me.
How about you?

   MeiDei  I've seen a good many of those listed, some are of no interest - surprised "Leon: the Professional" isn't on the list as well as a few starring Anthony Hopkins, "The Lion in Winter" another missing. "Goodbye Mr. Chips" w/O'Toole & Petula Clark also not mentioned.

What movies are favorites for those who visit here?

   GO3  The list is pretty good given it's posted by someone named Chloe who likes movies as we all do. Anyway, I differ with her selection of Clint Eastwood Westerns. I agree with The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and High Plains Drifter, but not A Fistful of Dollars. Not a bad movie, but it's a re-telling of an old story as we discussed earlier. I would have put The Outlaw Josey Wales in its place. In fact, it's one of Clint's best IMO. And I definitely would take JFK off the list because it's typical Oliver Stone loony bin conspiracy theory tripe.

   StormCnter  She was born on the 4th of July. She is a skilled photographer. A lettuce was named for her. Personal quotes: "I've had many lovers and still have romances. I am very spoiled. All my life, I've had too many admirers". "I have experience seducing nephews." "A woman at 20 is like ice, at 30 she is warm and at 40 she is hot." She retired from films after 50 years in the industry. Who is she?

   StormCnter  This is one of Mei's favorite types of quizzes, but I think she's having computer problems. So, here goes:

   StormCnter  She is usually listed on any of the "Worst Actress" lists and has even been targeted as "unsexy". She appeared in her first television special at the age of 8. She lived with Robert Downey, Jr., for six years. She was one of the first "Annie"s on Broadway. Manolo Blahnik named a shoe in her honor. She has seven siblings. She is a Golden Globe and Emmy winner. Who is she?
