The Dead Of Winter

  1. One of the finest, most beautiful short stories I've ever read. Huston did the impossible and preserved its impact on the screen. Great selection, Bruce!

  2. I saw this when it came out and again a few weeks ago. And The Dead is a masterpiece within a masterpiece.

  3. Needs subtitles - my hearing is too shot to understand anything being muttered there.

    My favorite Joshua trees grow in Ireland.

    Yeah, I had to mention that...

  4. And speaking of Jeopardy questions, name the only two Hollywood families that each have 3 generations of Academy Award winners.

    You are already half way there...

  5. Hollywood families? I do voices of Hollywood families: link

    I'm trying to script a dialog between Titus (voiced as Paul Lynde) and Trooper York (voiced as John Wayne).

  7. Yes, count your blessings.

    But your answer is incorrect. Thanks for playing and enjoy the home version of Jeopardy, where all the answers are double jeopardy. Well, they were in my house, but that's a story for another day.

  8. What's that, the Fondas? Sorry, wrong again.

  9. Well done, CL - that one stumped me when I first heard it, but FFC's father won one for his GF music. Sofia won one, too, but certainly not for her work in GF III. Man, she was bad in that turkey.

    For your fine work you win a paste-on replica of Alex Trebek's mustache. Wear it in good health!

  10. Whoa, dude, I clicked on your link - talk about The Great Folk Scare! You are too young to remember, but it was a dark time, my son, dark, I tells ya!

  11. I'm rather fond of the Kingston Trio, actually. Doubt there's much you can say to change my mind.

    1. All I would say is enjoy! Far be it from me to try and change your mind about music - one likes what one likes.

    1. Hibernian lull.

      More cheerbits to come!
