Not a B&W movie, but IF you've seen the new movie "Hunter Killer", the sniper rifle demonstrated in that movie is a Tracking-Point rifle.  Performance is typical of that rifle...

TORN CURTAIN didn't lose money but it wasn't a blockbuster due to the fact that it was terribly miscast....not considered one of Hitchcock's best.....he did not want these two actors but Universal insisted that he use them. They had zero chemistry. I saw it in the movies. It was OKAY......

Paul Newman drove Hitchcock crazy with his Method Acting......

AndrĂ© Previn died yesterday. Every time I hear his name I immediately think of the opening scene in BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK.

Image result for World War One CBS TV 1964


In 1964 CBS came out with a 26 episode documentary series about World War I. It was narrated by Robert Ryan. Many of you have probably seen it. I found it on Youtube. It looks like the History Channel or someone has replayed it. 

Episode One is unavailable due to copyright...but this starts at Episode Two and I guess you can just keep going....

I had already been fascinated by WW I because I had found an old book when I was twelve about The Great War in a junk room at my cousin's farm.

I can't find a picture of the exact book but it was an ancient book that was published immediately after the war. Anyway, I was amazed a couple of years later to see actual film of the war.

Didn't see the television version but loved the 1957 B&W version starring Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchester.  You should try to watch that version Ed. |

Oh, I've seen it! It's a favorite of mine! But it's not on Youtube!  ( so I stumbled upon this one...and it is adapted from the Billy Wilder screenplay so it should be pretty decent. )

Ed, you are being a bit disingenuous here... We KNOW you started WWI... (as well as the Mesopotamian war between Sumer and Elam and most wars in between...)

It's a 1968 "cult" movie that EVERYONE today should see... looks like the democrats are using its themes as a part of their new party plank...
Not a very good movie overall, but the points it makes are "right on, dude"...

I never saw it, even when I was eighteen. Lots of those "hip" movies back then were just too dorky with their weird photography and the almost "porn movie"-type music. 

But I'm sure you're right. The Democrats are CHILDREN trying to play Communists. 


.....and they're WINNING! Because our Opposition is freaking Indifferent!

A mighty book.....I'm on page 505....only 140 more pages to go!  This is the first book I have ever read from Paul Horgan but I'm about to order some more!
