Back when there were only a few NFL games televised each Sunday and before teams moved to new cities every few years I loved watching the rivalry games like Oakland vs Kansas City.

Sean Connery wasn’t in either of those movies.


Quote:Marsha Hunt was blacklisted by the Republicans at the time for being a Communist which she said she was not a communist and never was interested in it. How many actors, actresses and others in Hollywood back in that time got blackballed and never had a job for a while?
The film industry has always rewarded/punished people for political reasons.


My bad. I got that and Zardoz mixed up.

I’m sure Connery would have traded Zardoz for either of the other two. Maybe Zardoz the Greek, LOL?

I don’t know what John Boorman was trying to do with that (Zardoz). He was coming off of Deliverance, a commercial and critical smash-hit, and he was basically given as much $$$ as he wanted to make whatever movie he wanted. The result is one of the worst big-budget, big-name-star films of all time. Oh, well. Once seen, the image of Connery in that weird S&M outfit cannot be unseen.

Guns of Navarone is one of my all-time favorite movies. The scene that starts when David Niven has discovered the damage done by the traitor, and ends with Papas shooting the traitor, is one of the most intense movie scenes I know.

I think seeing the first 15 minutes of Saving Private Ryan on the Big Screen is the most intense movie experience I've had, and I had one uncle who was in the third wave to hit Omaha. I walked away with a deeper respect for a man whom I held in high esteem already. Unglaublich!

The Saving Private Ryan sequence is intense because of the fighting and violence. The Guns of Navarone sequence is intense primarily because of the interplay between Niven and Gregory Peck, where Niven is determined to get his pound of flesh, with no real violence until it ends with the shooting. Two different kinds of intensity.

I don't know of any guy who would want to go on the can. Weird Al. There's an 80's flashback! MTV was a hoot and Weird AL was better listened to that way! Wait! I just had the Dire Straits album flashback! My daughters wore me out with it! I'm afraid it set the stage for today's protests, "Money for Nothin' and Your Chicks for Free!"

If you're not a fan of the way local news is today, blame this guy, Al Primo, the man credited with creating Eyewitness News format: dies at 87

Quote:...Primo had developed the Eyewitness News concept earlier, and was recruited from KYW-TV in Philadelphia, where he had great success with his new approach to storytelling, and brought on talent like Tom Snyder.

While many people helped grow and spread the concept of Eyewitness News, Primo was the one who came up with the idea. Primo dispatched reporters into the field and then back into the studio to share their stories with the anchors, serving as eyewitnesses. Those reporters reflected the diversity of the community.

Primo believed the people presenting the news should look and sound like the audiences they served.

"I was determined to make the reporters the most important element of the program - they were the eyewitnesses," said Primo.

He hired many of Channel 7's legendary anchors and reporters from Geraldo Rivera to Rose Ann Scamardella....The Daily News once described him as 'the man who almost single-handedly changed the face of broadcast journalism.'...

Geraldo is more tabloid trash reporter than a real reporter.

Judge Laurence Silberman, Iconic Jurist, Dead at 86

Quote:Judge Silberman’s contributions to our nation transcend his stellar service as a judge. Characteristically, [his decisions are] rooted in the Constitution and a deeply principled grasp of the judicial role, which is more than can be said about the high court’s 1964 decision, so beloved by the media and by progressives who look to the judiciary to drive their policy preferences through the Constitution’s strictures....
