    Watching 'In Harm's Way' this morning. John Wayne and Kirk Douglas. Can't go wrong with those two.
    The opening shots of Sandy beach and Makapuu beach remind me of when I lived on Oahu.

    Just watched the movie "High Noon" again. I had to get a look at that second story window with the air conditioner hanging out of it. It sure as heck looks like one. What else could it be?

    I just watched an old western from the 1950s, and there's a scene where a puppet is sitting on a chair. I had to stop, back it up and freeze the frame to be sure, but the puppet is sitting on a blanket that has a swastika on it. I know that the swastika was used by some other groups before the Nazis, including an American Indian symbol, but I think the Indian symbol was a mirror image of the Nazi swastika. Either way, being produced so near the end of World War II, I would think they'd have been careful about the use of a swastika.

    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.
