Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for stooping by and for leaving such kind comments. I do appreciate the time and trouble you take!
As the post title says - I got one dead battery - so my camera was out of whack for a snap lat night. I didn't realize it until I went and tried to get a couple of snaps of the Hornbook and my battery light was a'blinking. So, I popped it out and plugged it into the recharger and will be able to get a snap this evening.
Last night the flicker was "Clash by Night" - 1952 -starring Barbara Stanwyck, Paul Douglas, Robert Ryan and Marilyn Monroe. A bit talky and stage bound in some scenes--but an interesting melodrama thanks mainly to the gripping performances of Stanwyck, Douglas and Ryan. Ryan would have made a great Stanley Kowalski in 'Streetcar' based on his drunk scene in this one. He can play a brute about as well as anyone and here he's quite an actor, matching Stanwyck's intense performance with a sturdy one of his own.Worth a look.
There you go sports fans - Thanks again for stopping by , do come again!!
