Yep, it's from WINGS, this is Margery Chapin, William Wellman's then wife in the scene in the french farmhouse where Richard Arlen crashes and then dies.

THE INTRUDER (1962) William Shatner

It's amazing still how few people know about this movie, Roger Corman said for years that it was his only film that lost money, even if it is the best thing he ever did, from a great Charles Beaumont script and an early powerhouse William Shatner performance.

Re: Sam Gill and Richard M Roberts Zoom Conversation December 19 online

We've been getting great feedback on the Zoom Webinar and are happy everyone seems to be enjoying it (and hey, it's perfectly okay to be enjoying it in increments, I haven't even watched it all yet).

THE SCULPTOR'S NIGHTMARE (Biograph 1908)

Strange early Biograph film, released May 8, 1908, directed by Wallace McCutcheon, features Eddie Dillon and Florence Auer, and supposedly D. W. Griffith, but Mack Sennett is definitely one of the members of the club (can't mistake him, he's wearing a derby): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUwJdqIQ...

Re: Something to head you into a Holiday Mood

Still my favorite Christmas song, so give it another listen if you heard it last year, still a great way to get in the holiday spirit.

Re: Season's Greetings

Ahh David, you beat me to it, but indeed, a Happy Holiday Season to all Mafiosi. No question, this year sucked, so let's be happy to see the back of it and hope 2021 is a big improvement.

God rest ye merry, ladies and gentlemen, let nothing you dismay.
