The Cartwrights go to San Francisco and one by one they get Shanghaied and sold off to merchant ships as crew.
You should really watch this. Colin Powell explains how he didn’t want to shoot an “Atomic Annie” at the Soviets. Nuclear Tipping Point is a 2010 documentary produced by the Nuclear Threat Initiative. It features interviews Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Sam Nunn, and William Perry. Did you know a good chunk of the power you’re using right now comes from the decommissioned nuclear submarines of the former USSR along with the Ukraine’s ICBM stockpile from the cold war? These are good guys trying to do a good thing. But there is a quandry. Who will own the last hydrogen bomb?
Here’s another Lone Star Picture with John Wayne. John Wayne goes after the guys that killed his dad.
This is one of my favorite John Wayne Movies. Quirt Evans gets introduced to Quakers, who take him in after he gets shot over a land deal. He likes the Quakers, especially the farmers daughter played by Gail Russell.
Captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden) tries to remain sane while leading the 12th Precinct’s detectives: crochety, nearing-retirement Jewish-American Philip K. Fish (Abe Vigoda); naive but goodhearted Polish-American Det. Stanley “Wojo” Wojciehowicz (Max Gail); ambitious, arrogant African-American Det. Ronald “Ron” Nathan Harris (Ron Glass); philosophical, wisecracking Japanese-American Nick Yemana (Jack Soo); and dauntless Puerto Rican Chano Amanguale (Gregory Sierra).
I wasn’t born when Ike made this speech, but we should sure be listening.
You should be rather afraid of this 63 years later. Here’s the whole thing.
I used to think 2010, a Space Odessy was the future. Well, we’re here. I can’t think of anything interesting to say at all, but we got this far, so I guess you just trust in the Lord and keep going. God Bless.
The order of the day was mutually assured destruction. I was 5 months old. The US Navy was adept at detecting Soviet submarines. Little did we know, his submarine had a nuclear torpedo. It was a hydrogen bomb. It had 80% odds of working. The Navy dropped some practice depth charges on it. They were just inviting it to surface. His Captain and his KGB political officer were ready for Armageddon and thought it it started.
Strange Illusion is a 1945 American film noir. This thing is a budget B. If there is any better copy of this, it isn’t mine. It’s still worth a watch. Reminiscent of a time when movies didn’t cost a hundred million bucks but had actual talent. It’s an Ulmer movie, that might get your attention about a man who is afraid of his mother’s boyfriend. Good performances and a decent plot.
It’s the same old sword and sandal where the men get captured by the Amazon women. It’s just the 1960’s plot line nobody ever got tired of. Well, not until 1970 anyway.
A couple travel to a village to investigate a painting by an artist they think is dead. They are told the ghost of the painter allowed a blind man to finish the work.
