  1. You have a great insight on the oldies. For me who toiled in the US film industry for over 35 years, have met and befriended many of those you mention on your blog. Excellent. (Dickie Moore, Hal Mohr, Peter Fonda, etc.)

  2. This is amazing you know i was free from many days so i got spectrum charter internet connection and I am adding all of the movies to my watch list which seems good, thanks for the review.


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
