Just getting back into the swing of things again,
I know we have discussed this one before.
I still think Mr Costner is a very good actor. I own
some of his movies on DVD and enjoy watching him.

It's been a wee while since I've done any lurking,
but if its good enough for my good friend Keith,
then its good enough for this Irishman. Hope all
you other lurkers are keeping well.
Thanks Robbie for bringing this up and allowing
us to pop out of the woodwork.
...things that had...
Jay, thanks for clearing that one up.
That's what I love about this wonderful site,
there's always someone with the right answer.
As you know I got to watch "THE SEARCHERS"
on the big screen a few weeks. They showed it in
the original VistaVision, a format that went for height
instead of width on screen. I noticed a couple of things
while watching it then, so I watched it again last night
to see if I had somehow missed them on DVD but I'm
glad to say that they are not seen. The first is when
Jeffery Hunter and Ken Curtis are in the kitchen and
about to fight over Vera Miles. As they are talking, you
can clearly see above them the boom microphone, that
in itself is nothing, you see that in a lot of movies. But
the second was a little funnier. When Henry Brandon as
Scar comes out of his tepee and throws a stone at a dog
to stop it barking, behind him you can see the set is on a
soundstage and above the blue painted wall you can see
three or four big stage lights, they remain in view for the
whole scene as Brandon turns from the camera and walks
away. It didn't spoil the movie but I wonder why John Ford
let that one go.
Cold and wet, don't think it
will improve for a few days.
...places that were...
We had a couple of wet days,
but today is dry and not that cold.
Carl my good friend sorry to hear you've been
under the weather, I hope you feel better in
time for the wedding.
....and made his....
Carl, Congratulations my friend,
I hope you enjoy them both. and
good luck with your research.
A belated Happy Birthday to Robbie
and to anyone I've missed. Like Robbie
I've been away a while but hope to come
I've not been around for a wee while,
so please let me just say to my good
friends Carl and Jay,
HAPPY 3rd ANNIVERSARY GUYS!!!!
Time does fly when you are enjoying yourself.
Well I went and watched Duke in "The Searchers"
on Friday night, I went with my wife, daughter,and
2 of our sons, and I have to say that it was an
unforgetable experience. They had an original
Vista Vision print which made it even more enjoyable,
and to hear people laugh at all the right places in the
movie was really something. I missed out on
"She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" tonight, but I'm going to
see "Fort Apache" tomorrow night, The Shootist" on
Tuesday, night and "stagecoach" on Thursday night.
I wish you all could be there.
Mike you are right the QFT are showing the
movies as part of "THE Belfast Festival at Queens".
It runs from 27th October, The Searchers will be
Carl I wish you could be here to enjoy these movies.
Chester, We could manage more than a bed by the fire.
Keith, I'm sorry I don't come around as much as I would like to,
I'm up to my eyes at work, but when I find a wee bit of time
to myself this is the place I head for first, even if it's just to
read all the wonderful posts
Next month a cinema here in Belfast
will be screening 5 John Wayne westerns.
One a night for 5 nights. They are,
The Searchers, She Wore a Yellow Ribbin,
Fort Apache, The Shootist, and Stagecoach.
5 classic movies and all on the big screen.
