   StormCnter  I haven't seen the movie, but I have to say if Lee Marvin isn't in the cast, nobody could have been the sergeant. ; )
Yesterday at 14:43 EST .

   Iacta alea est  Storm, Eastwood did a nice job as GSgt. Tom Highway. Marcia Mason played the ex. In reality it was the US Army Rangers who carried out this mission, but the Army didn't want to co-operate with the film company, so the changed the invasion force to the USMC.

   StormCnter  I'm trying to decide if I can persuade any of the granddaughters to come with me. I want to see it, but I need a kid to make it look legit.

   Gram77  Has anyone seen the previews for The Secret Life Of House Pets? I need something that requires little thinking and some laughter. Might see it.

Gregory Peck
Dean Jaggar
Hugh Marlowe
Gary Merrill
Millard Mitchell

Can you name it?
June 20 at 22:01 EST .

   StormCnter  Terrific film. Gregory Peck is always worth watching, but Dean Jagger is a fave of mine. "Twelve O'Clock High". Good one, Hope.

   HopeandGlory  That's correct Storm, Hubby loved it for the Umpteenth time Smile!. . . Sorry I didn't answer sooner, but my Internet has been down all day. Also, the electricity was off for an hour this morning, Is this going to be the new "Norm"? . . . Sigh!

   Safetydude  Roger on a terrific movie.
I can almost identify with the scene when General Savage started to suffer his breakdown and couldn't swing himself into the B-17 through the crew hatch.
No, not the breakdown, but having a tough time getting in the 'plane through the nose hatch.
Our wing hosted the B-17 "Memphis Belle", of what was the "Confederate(now commemorative )Air Force" when I stationed at Robins AFB with the 116th BW. Some of us did some maintenance on it and went up to the flightdeck, via the front hatch. I don't know how the crews wearing flack jackets and all that cold weather gear on managed it. It took us at least three tries to get it.
It's hard to believe that the old F-4 Phantom could carry twice the bomb load of the B-17.

It's nice to see some activity on the ol' Movie wall.

   MeiDei  Gee Safety you sure know how to make a person feel like chopped liver! [laughing] I thought you weren't happy with it/us.
June 23 at 11:36 EST .

   StormCnter  That's what I thought, too, Mei.
June 23 at 13:10 EST .

   Iacta alea est  I loved the TV show as a kid.
June 24 at 17:20 EST .

   Safetydude  I miss the quizzes.
By the way MeiD.. I love pate and cucumber sandwiches.
Not a thing wrong with chopped liver.
Yesterday at 23:04 EST .

   MeiDei  I loved my French aunt's pork liver pate, it was ground not chopped - couldn't help but make a pig of myself (laughing ).
I left you a war quiz tell us if it's to your liking.

   StormCnter  For Mei:

June 19 at 10:46 EST .

   Gram77  These two remind me of my grandkids driving their mother crazy. Very funny
June 19 at 12:46 EST .

   MeiDei  You can't look at Dwayne w/out smiling back at him! Unfortunately, I can't get sound.
June 19 at 12:49 EST .

   Safetydude  Who's Dwayne Johnson ?
June 19 at 18:13 EST .

   MeiDei  To wrestling fans (I'm not but I like John Cena ) he's known as "The Rock" - one of his characters in movies was the Scorpion King; a policeman in another + other roles.
June 19 at 19:35 EST .

   StormCnter  I'm sorry about your sound-deprivation, Mei, but I think this one was enjoyable even without it. Johnson and Fallon hammed it up pretty efficiently.
June 20 at 06:04 EST .

   MeiDei  Enjoyed it, trying to remember the name of the candy that popped & made crackling noises in your mouth -

   Iacta alea est  He was also a good football player at U of Miami
June 24 at 17:21 EST .

   StormCnter  Mei, the candy is Pop Rocks and was the reason for Fallon holding the mike to his mouth. I saw an article the other day saying Dwayne Johnson "isn't ruling out" a political run, apparently in California.
Iacta, it's nice to see you.
June 25 at 05:50 EST .

   MeiDei  Pop Rocks, of course! : ) Remembering all the kids insisting you listen to their throaty poppings. They seem not to outgrow that joy in later years : )-nor should they while it still makes us laugh.

   Escaped commieny  Gram I sent him your email. He said I could give out his new one to the 'old timers' from the Connection. I told him most no longer post here. I had to send emails to all our original members for a prayer circle for DH's cardio endarterectomy done this week. The prayers worked, successful surgery and he is home. Wonderful people and a great loss for this site.
