        Good day, Wee! Here’s a list of his films…soooo many good ones….
        https://www.imdb.com/list/ls058501409/

        This might have been told before, but one day in 1974 James Woods came to my office for an appointment with my boss. He wasn’t terribly well known at the time and still had to go on interviews and do readings for parts. He was humble and respectful to everyone. It’s a big tell when actors/actresses are courteous to support staff. It’s most appreciated since that’s not always the case.

        I told him how much I liked his performance in THE WAY WE WERE. He was delighted and so sweet in his thanks. I didn’t find out until years later that much of his performance had been cut from the finalized film for whatever reason. And yet his time on screen very much adds to the story plot and is memorable.

          I had the feeling that he was a genuinely nice person from his interview. I thought it was telling that he took Tucker’s call when he said he always turns down interviews.

          What a great list, Lucille. I have only seen a couple of them; time for a James Woods marathon! We have Prime and Netflix, I hope I can find quite a few of them there. Thanks!

            You’re welcome, Tundra.

            Two TV movies not to miss. Simply fabulous acting in both by James Garner and James Woods. Garner very much respected Woods’ abilities and Woods returned the admiration.

            “Promise” (1986)
            James Garner, James Woods and Piper Laurie. When his mother dies, Bob (Garner) inherits her small estate, but he also inherits custody of his mentally ill brother (Woods) from whom he’s been estranged for years.

            “My Name Is Bill W.” (1989)
            Bill Wilson (Woods) was successful businessman but the pressure to continue that success when the 1930s Great Depression began started him on a race to the bottom which lost him everything. “My Name Is Bill W.” is the story of Wilson’s founding of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

    Not sure that many here follow Formula 1 racing, but this helps me predict the future. F1 has already cancelled their scheduled race in China for 2023. This will be the 4th consecutive cancellation due to “COVID-19 difficulties.” Tells me that we’re likely to have to “deal” with this shiite for likely the rest of my life. Not that I care that a capitalistic enterprise is pulling out of China for any reason. Keeps them off the Tee-Vee for at least those few hours.

    Mornin’ All. The sky is pretty much clear, just a little haze. It was 0* when I woke up at 8:30 and has soared up to 9*. Nope, I’m not in Florida any more. Poor little Loki went out, pooped right away and was ready to come back in. Too cold for her. I think she must have peed inside since she was sitting at the door with her head hanging. But I can’t find it anywhere.

    Well, I have a lot to do today. I am excited to have my girls decorate my apartment for Christmas. I think they will love to decorate the tree.

    Wishes for a good day for all, not matter the weather.

    WordPress must have done a major update last night. I can once again enter comments on the front page instead of from the administrator’s view, my notification bell is back. These are very welcome.

    Now for something weird. When I do new posts (like the ones for general discussion, which I generally do on Saturday or Sunday), I often simply copy the previous week’s posts and modify them for the new week. The weird part. WordPress has added a comment to the copied post which is only viewable in the admin copy, and which cannot be edited. It says, “What are your feelings about eating meat?” Here is a screen shot:

    I can’t imagine why they have done this, as the sentence doesn’t show up in the finished post, just in the edit view. I suppose it could somehow be shown subliminally, but that would be too creepy.

    I just got an email from IMBD about movies to watch:

    Violent Night
    Lady Chatterly’s Lover
    1899
    The Menu
    Disenchanted

    You can tell from some of the names that they aren’t Christmas Movies. I looked at the write up of The Menu. I can only guess what garbage that is. And, Disenchanted is the poor girl got tired of her life. Just lovely. 🙄

    I just watched Died Suddenly. I am almost sorry I did. I knew a lot of what was in it, but the horror of it all was hard to take in.

          Yes, the Japanese director whose name begins with a K–very famous but I can’t remember it right now–is reputed to have liked the American version very much.

            I was in my early twenties, I think, and my husband insisted we go see it. I had never liked foreign movies, especially with subtitles. I was absolutely spellbound throughout the whole movie. And, we had gotten there late and had to sit in the 2nd row from the front on the end, My seat was broken. I never even noticed I was so involved in the movie.

              There was a TV station out of Los Angeles which ran subtitled Japanese films and TV series. Some didn’t even have subtitles but I watched them anyway.

              Absolutely fell in love with Ken Watanabe (or Watanabe Ken, as the Japanese would say it) when he was in an episodic historical drama. I asked one of my co-workers to see if her aunt, who spoke Japanese, could tell me what the series was about…LOL! Turned out his character was a vigilante who was righting wrongs by offing the miscreants.

              Anyway, Watanabe later starred along with Tom Cruise in THE LAST SAMURAI and he was nominated for an Academy Award. He was fabulous!

            Czar bought a copy to make sure we could watch it occasionally. Kurosawa was the director.
