For When You Can't Ride

FWIW, some entertainment recommendations for discerning members:

Reading: This Kind Of War: The Classic Military History Of The Korean War - T.R. Fehrenbach. The most engrossing military history book I've ever read.

Movies: Gold Diggers of 1933.


What We Do In The Shadows


Television: TCM's Noir Alley. Airs late Saturday night and again Sunday morning.

Noir Alley, highly recommended! Some of Hollywood's best.

Indeed, that's a good one. I was surprised on this morning's NA Murder My Sweet when Phillip Marlowe was played by Dick Powell, one of the stars of Gold Diggers of 1933 I recommended above. I'd never seen it. He's not nearly as good a Marlow as Bogart.

I haven't watched any of the Bogart - Marlowe films. Where do you recommend one start?

I might be forgetting others, but the only one I can think of is The Big Sleep.

Robert Mitchum was also a good Marlowe.

The Big Sleep, for sure. You get Lauren Bacall in the bargain.

And for more Bogie and Bacall, To Have and Have Not.

That I do want to see. I watched Friends of Edddy Coyle recently, too, and was reminded that Mitchum's the shit. And now that I'm thinking about it, not having any of his Marlowe films on hand until I get to the movie store, I think I'll watch Night of the Hunter this evening…

When I was in the Army T.R. Fehrenbach signed a copy of that book for me. Korea was my home away from home. Except for the times on the DMZ I loved it there. Not enough books or movies on that war.

Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..
