Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson
HEAR WANDA Do Jerry’s ‘Whole Lot A Shakein‘ in recent times, with Imelda – and her big hit ‘ Let’s Have A Party.’
Just after saying that the time is coming for her to hand over the crown to being the Queen of Rockabilly, Imelda May comes on stage and says that there is never a need to pass the mantel. Hear Jerry Lee perform elsewhere by searching these pages
This trailer from ‘PHIL SPECTOR’ sums up the film pretty well in 2 minutes… listen closely to all the words and statements. Now you don’t need to watch it, unless your’e a big Phil Spector and Al Pacino fan, as I am. All I can say is it’s too bad he ever met Lana Clarkson
Re PHIL SPECTOR movie last nite, Interesting and sad how Spector’s life is now in prison and while others, perhaps more guilty , like Robert Blake and Robert Wagner, are free – probably because they are more sympathetic characters . No place for eccentrics in society anymore…..and So much for US jury system and innocent until proven guilty….the public may have been ready to finally put away a celebrity, especially one like Spector, after letting so many go free , eg OJ, Blake… https://oldiescountry.com
Movie could have been a lot better, perhaps with planned Bette Midler as attorney. Knowing Spector’s genius music producing I wanted to like him and did to some extent. Would have liked to see more background footage of his difficult yet positive past. Http://oldiescountry.com
Phil Spector goes before the masses in a tv special tonite, the first time we can all get a better glimpse into the famous trial that would finally end in a 19 year 2nd degree sentence for the music genius producer ..Hear Spector’s wife’s take. ://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/21/rachelle-spector-phil-spector-hbo-movie-proves-innocence_n_2924416.html http://ow.ly/i/1KtiA Al Pacino as Phil Spector. It may have been a case of the biggest mismatch with Spector trying to play psychiatrist for a possibly suicidal Lana Clarkson when Spector was a longtime patient himself – perhaps a case of two people being in the wrong place ,ie together. Perhaps a case for a lesser,say manslaughter verdict. You be the judge tonite SHO 9 pm. More @ https://oldiescountry.com http://ow.ly/i/1KttT http://ow.ly/i/1KtvB Note similarity in the Robert Blake trial and even Natalie Wood case; some say Blake and Robert Wagner may have been more guilty but got off, Perhaps Spector’s off eccentric past cost him in the eyes of MOST of the jury. In light of this, we think that Tv / movies can sometimes serve a positive thing by bringing forth. Such controversaries before the biblical (even if there is some ‘optic fiction ‘ in this movie.
Twilight Zone, Walking Distance
Bought that Blue Ray Collection of all the Twilight Zone
and as I slowly watch them, savoring one episode at a time,
I”m amazed as each ‘new’ one seems to be better than the last.
Just had to note the one I just watched, ‘Walking Distance’ (season 1, #5)…
It’s about Martin Sloan, 36, (Gig Young) who, while dropping off his car for
a lube at a remote service station, is told that the next town is within
‘walking distance,’ and he proceeds to take a walk back in time, to
‘Homewood.’ There he finds nothing has changed since his youth and even
sees himself 25 years his junior, riding on the merry go round. He
nearly kills his junior, chasing him around the moving carousel, amidst the
bobbing plastic horses and animals .
He goes back to see his parents, who , naturally , are dumfounded and
throwhim out of the same house in which he was raised.
He even goes back to the old malt shop where he gets his favoorite
chocolate soda, still only 10c, to his disbelief.
Before long , on his walk back to get his car, he stopped again at the malt
shop, where the price for his chocolate soda has risen to 35c. The original
owner of the shop he learns has passed and the new, young soda jerk also
barely recalls the old merry go round being torn down.
‘You can’t go back home’ they say, but Richard Slone did, if only for a short
time. It was on one hand a thrilling experience , but confusing and hurtful
to see his time has passed.
The episode of ‘Walking Distance’ ends with Slone reminding us to enjoy our
quickly fleeting youth, as it only comes once.
Very Chilling to this nostalgist. Just watching this episode of ‘Walking
Distance,’ I feel like I almost time travelled , myself, for a
little while – and enjoyed it. I’ve actually had some real life experiences
goingback to places I haven’t been since my youth that have also remained
similar, like my boyhood home, on – not Homewood- but Hillwood. There’s
nothing like the Twilight Zone series;
never was and probably never will be. Glad we have these 50 or so episodes
to enjoy… now available on Blue Ray (This was noot intended to be a
commerical but merely to share the joy I continue to get from watching
each ‘new’ episode.
Here, you can watch it yourself for just $1.99!
Somethings today ARE better… like being
able to instantaneously watch an old movie or TV program…Ha! Enjoy!
P.S. Another side benefit of watching these shows is seeing all the vintage
classic cars we love, circa 1959-1964, and other period pieces. And, then
there’s the commentary on the updated discs from some of the many actors
who would later go on to greater fame.
