Re: Forum Banners 2019

Wait.. the photo with the Pontiac is identified as "circa 1955".. if that's true (?) the car could be several years old. The scene looks early '50s, though.

Re: Forum Banners 2019

The car is a Pontiac.. looks like a 1952 model with that visor (see Google images). If that's true the photo could've been taken as early as the autumn of 1951 (U.S. cars then were always introduced in the previous fall of the model-year).

Re: California fires

Bryan, the fires in northern California (the town of Paradise) are probably six hours by car from Carmel. You're right, it is shocking and devastating for residents.. more than 200 are missing, known dead approaching 30, and 90% of buildings are gone it's said. Here in the city we're having dark ski...

Re: Once Over Lightly

Last year at the party for her 90th I told Doris that I went "all the way back" to "Sentimental Journey" -- and we both laughed.. It's nice to know that "My Lost Horizon" was produced on my 5th birthday. I must have gone someplace with family where soundies were played, but don't remember them, unfo...

" fifty eight " -- when it was time (for me) to graduate ..

Also the last time anyone was seen to get " weak in the knees "

Interesting, and a lot of work, no doubt much of it difficult and time-consuming.. but "Sentimental Journey" made Doris Day famous -- it did not give her "notoriety".

Re: The Man Who Knew Too Much

TMWKTM played on the big screen last night at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland--complete with cartoon, newsreel, short subject, all for $5--and I couldn't go due to other plans.

Check out the theatre online to see a gorgeous Art Deco masterpiece of a place--they show movies only once in awhile.
