Steve the @postman29 , Clint Eastwood The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.  and True Grit with John Wayne  so good.  Million Dollar Baby with Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank excellent!  Ok, my list is getting longer, Wayne and Eastwood have to be added. Eastwood Director, Producer, Writer, Music score writer in addition to his amazing acting. I stand corrected  ---  Christine the limericker

Steve the @postman29 That's an interesting mix.  I don't get cable any more.  One of my favorite old tv series was Quincy md with Jack Klugman.   Does MEtv have that show on?  ---  Christine the limericker

I haven't seen Quincy on MEtv recently. Good show though. Always liked Klugman, especially on The Odd Couple. Great shows like The Big Valley (Peter Breck was from my hometown, that whole cast was awesome), Cannon, and The Fugitive are on MEtv. Brings me back to my youth.

Steve the @postman29 Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, so good together.  Barbara Stanwyck awesome. Long acting career- she was one of the best.   A little crush on Lee Majors and the other two brothers.  Wanted to be Linda Evans and  Lindsay Wagner when I was young!

 

Time for a little reading and sudoku before bedtime. Take care,  Christine the limericker

@Raynyky Can't believe I forgot Humphrey Bogart. Bogie and Bacall.  Classic couple. Favorite Bogart movie The African Queen with Katherine Hepburn.  Runner up Caine Mutiny, one of my hubbies favorites.   ---  Christine

@Raynyky Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walked into mine.  We'll always have Paris. Play it , Sam.  Louis, I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship. Doesn't get much better.  Though some think Citizen Kane best movie ever. Both superb!   ---  Christine
