  1. Gene Tierney had her share of love affairs during her Hollywood reign, including a notorious one with John F. Kennedy, whom she met while filming Dragonwyck (1946). Kennedy broke it up because of his political aspirations.

    Despite Gene Tierney's earlier romance with John F. Kennedy during the Forties, she voted for Richard Nixon in 1960 instead. She did send JFK a congratulatory note when he was elected president, however

    Gene Tierney was a lifelong staunch Republican and a strong supporter of Richard Nixon andRonald Reagan in particular.

  4. Laura has always been in my favorite top 5 movies and she was wonderful in it along with Clifton Webb.

  7. As a kid, I used to watch movies in the afternoon after school. If it was in black and white, I've probably seen it!

  8. You will enjoy when you find it on Netflix or DVR it on Turner Classic Movies it is a great murder mystery and Alfred Hitchock would have approved. I'll make a deal with you, if you see it and find me wrong you can give me two demerits which I won't contest. Deal?

  9. I don't give many demerits. I rely on the Hillary Clinton, 'grade your own paper, arbitrate your own disputes and punish yourself for any infraction' school of discipline.

    But, I'll put it on my list. You do know that Laura is the face in the misty light, footsteps that you hear down the hall. The laugh that floats on a summer night that you can never quite recall?

    BTW, I like the Spike Jones cover.

  10. You crafty devil. I'm impressed with your skirting of the demerits and got a big chuckle, thanks. The cover is Al Capp from Dogpatch cartoon and in this day and age we could use a few Shmoos (research Shmoo) and you will agree. I must admit I like what you come up with and look forward to it on a daily basis. Please keep up the great work. Thanks, puyalluppete

  11. Thanks! We appreciate you stopping by and putting your two cents in.
    I was a big fan of Al Capp. Aside from his talent, he respected his audience. I learned a lot from him. The first time I ever saw the word "trajectory" was in an Al Capp strip. Then, I'd have to get out a dictionary and find out what he was saying.
