I'm still on the old ad kick:

OK, why is it again that Ray movies are hardly on TV? Never mind, I think I know. Just venting.

Many thanks to Carrie for sending me a copy of I Wanted Wings. Believe it or not, it was missing from the collection!

And finally, anyone have a high-res version of the below image they can share? I think it's safe to say that's in my top 10 favorite classic photos.

Finest Beer I Ever Tasted!

I've noticed that a couple of blogs I read have been posting advertisements with classic stars. I have to add my contribution to the mix:

From 1948. Too bad Relentless didn't have a plot similar to The Lost Weekend. There'd be an odd movie tie-in.

See the others at:
I'll have to do some more digging to see what I can find....

Just settling in for John Dall nite here at the ranch. Something in the Wind, Gun Crazy and a beer or two thrown in for good measure.

Happy 4th!

Yeah, a bit overboard on the theme, but I can't pass up classic color like this!

Let's Talk Hitchcock for a Moment

I must have been living under a rock - just ran into my new favorite site:

Tons of details and photo downloads. My favorite find so far . . . Know the movie?

Did I mention photos? Be sure to check out Mr. and Mrs Smith and your other favorites.

Related, I was driving home from work today and flipped to the Radio Classics channel on XM. I caught the tail end of a discussion of Ray Milland starring in a version of Strangers on a Train. From what I've dug up so far, it's dated 51-12-03 from the Lux Radio Theater. If you have a copy on MP3 and would like to share, please drop me a note! If I can get a copy, I'll post it on the blog as well for everyone.

UPDATE: Kelsey found a link to the MP3 of Milland's Strangers on a Train over at Calfkiller OTR. Thanks!
