    Intriguing Ike - I shall ponder this. I watched the movie a few months back and didn't notice it :)

    @Ike Willis I'm thinking the symbol was probably the left-facing one.
    The local library in the small town I lived in awhile back, came across a Rudyard Kipling book with the left-facing
    swastika on the facing page and pulled the book from the shelf. Kipling put them on his older copies for good luck.
    Nazi's used the right-facing symbol.

    I asked about buying the book, but they were going to ' get rid of it '. A shame. It was " The Man Who Would Be King ".

    Saw another old western and in a room scene there was a table by a wall. The table had a kerosene lamp on it and a small section of electric cord ran over the table to the lamp.
    Can't remember the western now. Maybe a 'Bonanza'.
    I look for stuff like that.:D

    My favorites are, "To Kill A Mockingbird", "Grapes Of Wrath", "Casablanca," Anything B & W shrouded in mystery, suspense. Makes it all the more spooky.:)

    While watching 2 old Sherlock Holmes movies this morning, at the beginning of 'The Woman in Green',
    Sherlock is in a night club and reaches over to add some seltzer to his drink.
    I thought an old, glass seltzer bottle would look good sitting on my bar. Just for decoration.
    Something like this:

    Off to ebay to see what's available.

    I've watched every Sherlock Holmes I can find on Youtube @Tim Burr and yes, that is neat decor for a kitchen for sure:)

    I think my fave of all time from Sherlock is The Hound of the Baskervilles. Jeremy Brett is a good Sherlock, and I did love old Basil as well:) I've seen the new ones with Downey Jr. and Bennedict Cumberbatch, but something about the old ones get my #1 vote;)

    Ok, I should put my fave Black and White. I have several but I'll pick just one for now:)

    Right now, I am thinking of Key Largo w/Bogie and Bacall [​IMG]

    He was good in that for sure. Sherlock was supposed to be very eccentric (I think that's the right word) or odd too;) Brett is unique. I liked that Watson too, I know his name, cannot think of it offhand;)

    That's right he was unique and fitted the role perfectly

    Edward Hardwicke. I think he replaced a previous actor in the part though;)

    This is a wonderful movie. One of my fave parts was where Roddy jumped in to save momma and they both were sick in bed awhile. Good/Excellent choice @Holly Saunders

    Cast a Giant Shadow isn't black and white if I remember right, but it's one of Kirk's best imo!

    It's been so long since I've watched some of the ones mentioned on here....something to do when I'm bored.

    It's funny that I don't really do anything but I'm seldom bored....thank goodness for that.

    Jane Eyre is like, omgosh, one of my faves, just watched it again with Joan Fontaine as the adult Jane Eyre. Yes, Elizabeth, wasn't she gorgeous even as a little girl:)

    Orson Welles was wonderful in that.

    It's hard for me to concentrate on a whole movie anymore. I've seen so many over the years, and LOVE them, remember them. I have to be in just the right mood to watch TV/movies. At christmas time, I have no problem watching the old ones though, like Scrooge, It's a Wonderful Life:)
