Was watching another of the best movies ever (Jeremiah Johnson) and saw some commercials for The Shawshank Redemption....it's on tonight (Sat) at 8 pm on AMC.
I'll take the river down to still water and ride a pack of dogs.
It is sad how many of the great actors and actresses are so damned liberal. No wonder they were all suspect back in the days after WWII...when "..if your mommie is a commie, ya gotta turn her in."
Does it stem from white guilt? That certainly was the case with Hanoi Jane, and she was a drool in her day. Shawshank was a classic. So were many of the Danny Glover bits when he starred with Gibson, who I also thought was reedeemable until recently. I'll still watch his "Forever Young" flick, tho.
About the only Hollywood types I hold in high esteem are the late Charleton Heston, (who, during the Clinton years was MY President) and Tom Selleck. His current TV series is just super. I also enjoyed that series he produced as the chief of police in Paradise.
It's seldom that you see a CW star claim to be liberal...most are of the conservative persuasion, but they seldom flaunt it. After Waylon and Johnny passed away, we didn't hear much from that crowd, with the exception of Willie's tax problems. One of those original 'liberal' Highwaymen that Waylon always thought should grow up was Kris Kristofferson, but he's hardly heard from anymore.
Those 4 on the blue collar tour didn't have many 'liberal' tendancies. Always enjoyed those dudes, although it got occasionally over the top with blue material. When I'm surfing, I frequently land on a channel featuring Ron White, who I'll happily spend time with.
When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
I don't have cable or satellite so missed it this week end. We only use Netflix or the internet for our TV needs if its not on local channels. I'll check out netflix and see if it's on there!
