Sherlock as Holmes.

Pick your adjective:

Really cute!
Really adorable!
Really priceless!

I love Chad and Roy, the SWAT team.  They make me laugh.  There's a spinoff series here.



I said the same thing last night, DR Elmore. I adored those two guys. I recorded last night's show and will be watching again later in the week. I will have to keep my eyes out for their credits.

I began my evening of viewing finishing THE CLOSER episode from Season 2 that I was rewatching. I felt really bad for that father who had to keep that psycho surrogate mother from trying to take away the daughter he and his wife had raised from birth. I hope the jury was lenient with him.

Next, I watched LUST IN THE DUST. I saw this in the theater decades ago when it was released, and I found it a trifle disappointing. After reading Tab Hunter's autobiography, I decided to find a cheap used copy of the disc to watch it again. It was still disappointing. The cast was fine, but the writing just wasn't up to snuff - lots of great comedy potential undone by lackluster writing.

The disc had great color and sharpness but the grain was heavier than I like to see.

Next, I began PURSUIT TO ALGIERS, another Basil Rathbone/Sherlock Holmes film. Probably the least exciting of the series, and yet I still have a fondness for it. Love the cast, and that was a neat surprise they pull with the prince.

I'll finish it tomorrow. I haven't gotten to hear Nigel Bruce sing "Loch Lomand" yet!

And I ended my evening with another episode of DAMAGES. Once again, a terrific shock near the end of the episode, and then surprise after surprise afterward. I don't see how on earth the writers are going to be able to constantly pull rabbits out of hats for the rest of the remaining episodes of the season, but so far, there hasn't been a mundane episode yet.

Yesterday was June Allyson Day at TCM, and of her movies that they showed during the day, I got the DVR to pick up TWO SISTERS FROM BOSTON which I've only seen once in my life and it was very long ago. Tomorrow, I'll watch that in the afternoon. Think I'll hold off on watching the last two Charlie Chans in the box set. Don't want to have them wear out their welcomes too quickly.

Just back from having had a fabulous time seeing the radiant Heather Spore (to my delight, Heather lists Last Starfighter as the second credit in her bio, right after The Fantasticks) go on as Glinda opposite Julia Murney's fantastic Elphaba, and with Lenny Wolpe delightful - but creepy when necessary - as the Wizard.  

There was a little do at the New World Grill after the show, where I got to meet lots of Heather's family and friends.  (Skip was performing his show at 59E59 tonight, and therefore couldn't go to see WICKED tonight.)  While Heather's gone on as Glinda before, this was the first time she knew well enough in advance to let people who have been anxious to see her as Glinda know about it.

I was going to watch the first disc of Kenneth Branagh's magnificent motion picture of HAMLET, but, the first act is two hours and thirty-seven minutes long!  (I shall have to begin this endeavor at 7 or 8 pm some night, definitely NOT at midnight)!

Sherlock is so adorable!

Years ago, when I moved into my little house out in the country, the mailboxes for the whole development were about two blocks from my house. In the summer, I would walk down in the evening (after everything had cooled off).  All the way down to the mailboxes and back to the house I could hear the bats flying right over my head.  It was kind of a cool sensation listening to them, they sounded like Keifer Sutherland and company in LOST BOYS.

Of course, one day my neighbor informed me that they were fruit bats; so then I was afraid to leave the house.

I remember living on the LA wash and hearing the bats on the summer nights. Very relaxing if you don't picture them flying in your hair.

Alan is a favorite at the Shubert Theatre, where I hear he was fabulous in the Lancelot track. He came in to see the show once while I was working there, and was just as pleasant and unassuming as anyone could be. And his girlfriend was loverly, as well, if anyone is interested.

DR Jose: Can you send me the breakdown for the Genie? I'm curious to know what makes me so "right" for it. In any case, I plan to be there. Won't that be weird, seeing how I assistant directed ALADDIN, JR. for MTI/Disney/Mr. Menken (starring SPRING AWAKENING's Gideon Glick)?? And what should I sing?

I'm very quickly becoming a fan of "The Closer." Kyra Sedgwick is fantastic, as is HAIRSPRAY's Corey Reynolds and the rest of the cast. And the writing is FANTASTIC! How have I missed this show until now??

I'm also having a fun time reading the Tom Ripley books. I just finished "The Talented Mr. Ripley," and have moved to the next in the series, "Ripley Under Ground." I'm averaging about 150 pages a day, which for me is practically speed reading! The book has to go back on the 30th, so I have to keep going... Only 700 pages to go!

Maybe I'll get a bagel instead.  Got to turn on the air and cool down the home environment and am antsy and needing some fresh air.

I've been writing the notes fairly early this week, but I don't think I will tonight.  I think I'll wait until the last minute so I can rush through them headlong and fancy free.
