Listener comments!

  1:09pm Tom:

Unforgettable in Man in the Dark made in 3D!
  1:14pm Philo Gristle:

Never saw Man in the Dark myself, but he was great in DOA. Looking at his films, surprised to see he was in Wild Bunch!
  1:14pm JohnP in PA:

off to a rockin' start! wish your show was 3 or 4 hours instead of just two.
  1:15pm SteveL:

JohnP: Don't forget the archives!
  1:17pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

any truth to the rumor that the label for the Royal Flairs had "One Pink Box" misprinted on it?
  1:19pm SteveL:

"meanwhile, I'm still thinkin'"

T-Rex line origin?
  1:22pm Honey Water:

Is this a trivia quiz today? Hi, Rex, and everyone here already and still to come!
  1:23pm Honey Water:

I concur w/ Philo. DOA was a superb film.
  1:28pm Philo Gristle:

Gang War! Rumble! Juvenile Delinquents! Great song.
  1:28pm Honey Water:

Dunno about pine vs. pink, but bet it s.b. "The LightNing Strikes" for anyone who cares about such.
  1:33pm Honey Water:

See you last played this in October 2010 -- do you have a year this came out [Eller Davis]?
  1:35pm Ralph:

  1:36pm Honey Water:

This comments board is like a Jeopardy board: All questions with no answers. ;)
  1:36pm Philo Gristle:

  1:37pm Edmond O'Brien:

You're too kind...
  1:38pm Philo Gristle:

Edmond O'Brien, class act even beyond the grave.
  1:42pm Honey Water:

NOW we're into some boojie woojie -- Go 'Fess!
  1:46pm Honey Water:

[Correction: Like the *opposite* of a Jeopardy board]
  1:47pm Mike East:

Hey Philo - I've got "For a Few Dollars More" waiting for me when I get home today...completing the trilogy.
  1:49pm Philo Gristle:

Hi Mike! Honey's off to do some work, but sends her regards. I trust The Man With No Name will help with the headache of having to work on a Saturday!
  1:53pm Mike East:

@Philo - That's my thinking exactly...Though I have been watching some Doctor Who at work since its slow, so I shouldn't complain too much. I hope you two enjoy your day.
  1:56pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks Mike! At least they let you listen to WFMU at work -- that's better than my place which frowns on streaming. So the new Dr. Who any good? I've only ever seen the 'classic' shows. Love old Brit tv.
  1:58pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

Don't forget THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT with Edmund!
  1:59pm Tom:

Shield for Murder is available on DVD. It's pricey at $23!
  2:00pm Philo Gristle:

Frank Tashlin! Admittedly I've never seen TGCHI......
  2:03pm Mike East:

yes, my bosses are pretty lax. New Dr. Who is pretty good...took me a minute to get into it, but I watched it with my very reluctant 7 yr old daughter and she really dug it, so I'm glad we can bond over it. Its corny and witty, cheap effects, interesting plots, good writing. New Yorker review got me on board.
  2:04pm Little Richard:

The Gristle Can't Help it!
  2:07pm Philo Gristle:

We should catch it sometime; Honey & I both like good science fiction and that sounds like great fun. The box sets are just a tad expensive so we haven't yet made the plunge...
  2:10pm Mike East:

I do the netflix thing...its all available streaming.
  2:11pm Philo Gristle:

We'll probably watch WILD BUNCH this weekend, Honey got me the Peckinpah westerns set as a b'day gift and it has both Edmund O'Brien and Ernest Borgnine in it.... It's been probably 15 years since I've last seen it.
  2:12pm Philo Gristle:

Ah, that's the way to go. We've got Roku player with hulu plus but no netflix.
  2:13pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

GCHI is a must. Little Richard, Treniers, Eddiie Cochran....
  2:13pm Philo Gristle:

L'il Richard, didn't you make an appearance in GIRL? The best modern rock'n'roll movie is Jim McBride's GREAT BALLS OF FIRE.
  2:16pm Philo Gristle:

@LJiP You pre-empted my question. Thanks!
  2:17pm Mike East:

Wild Bunch is a good one. Enjoy.
  2:19pm Philo Gristle:

Will do. Honey's not a huge western fan, but she enjoys them in small doses. Did you see Once Upon a Time in the West yet? Perfect cap to the trilogy.
  2:20pm Edmond O'Brien:

I once recited Shakespeare with Keith Moon at Sam Peckinpah's surprise birthday party.
  2:22pm Mike East:

No, but its available streaming! Thanks for the tip. This is why I comment!
  2:24pm Mike East:

...and just for the record, I will be watching these without my wife. Not really her cuppa tea, either.
  2:25pm Philo Gristle:

Excellent! GREAT opening. The rest of it is fantastic, but the whatever 20 minute opening gunfight is brilliant (about 30 seconds of action).
  2:26pm sinner:

Scratchest record Rex has ever played????
  2:31pm Moira Johnston:

  2:32pm Philo Gristle:

Honey liked OUATITW and the Leone westerns more than most. Great music, sense of humor and drama, and not just all shootouts from beginning to end.
  2:33pm ken in denver:

Shield for Murder for free: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm-YniAd8hs
  2:33pm Micheal E. Flood:


RIP Ernest Borgnine
Dead at 95
His secret to longevity self abuse.
  2:40pm Tom:

Thanks Ken!
  2:47pm Tom:

Yeah, they do have clips of the film, but not the entire movie.
  2:52pm Boston Bob from Miami:

Rooty Poop the Black Pope rules and dat's wat i'm talkin bout. Listenin in Miami and diggin it. Little Beaver~George & Gwen~Willie Clarke~Clarence Reid~Lynn Williams ~Mighty Ryeders~Jimmy Bo~Philip & Betty~Perk Badger~Frankie Seay and Henry Stone all say hello.
  2:58pm ?:

Michael Constantine could be a Rex double more than O'Brien.
  3:00pm ken in denver:

Full movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm-YniAd8hs
  3:00pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks Rex & fellow listeners!
  11:32am Pete Wentz:

c/w GO GO Girl records are the best !
