    he directed Legend of the lost and while on location fell hopelessly in love with Sophia loren, but who wouldn't?

    He may be talking about this woman except according to her biography, she wasn't black nor did she commit suicide.

    maybe that's an indictment against our school system as it is now!!

    Precisely - I think the public school system today is a total disaster. We should tear it down and start over.

    Thanks to some well-rounded reading, even our nine-year-old son knows what a fortnight is.

    That's what home schooling does, Sue. But I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that millions of supposedly well-educated Americans would have absolutely no clue what a fortnight is.

    I am going on leave for a fortnight starting saturday

    I had to chuckle at this, Arthur. Only an Englishman would use the term fortnight ( an old fashioned term for two weeks. Many Americans will say to themselves, "Now what the hell is he talking about?" :lol: )

    Anyway, have a great time.

    Bernstein had some great soundtracks but my all-time favorite was his music from "The Sons of Katie Elder". Now that theme was soul-stirring, I thought.

    I always liked Chill Wills. Did y'all ever see him in the "The Rounders" starring Glenn Ford and Henry Fonda? He plays a slick-talkin' rancher who's always gettin' over on Ford and Fonda, two down-on-their-luck cowboys. Pretty funny movie. Had an alcoholic horse in it. :lol:

    33 years ago Natalie Wood of The Searchers married Robert Wagner

    To this day I've had a sneakin' suspicion that Wagner had something to do with Natalie's drowning. I know there was no thorough investigation of the incident but of course, Teddy Kennedy wasn't investigated very thoroughly either over the Chappaquidic drowning.
