    The Era -- Day By Day

    Goebbels: "Be like me...[Allies] should tell the truth all the time." There is no parody like self parody. Considering the fainting and histrionics we've already seen from Webb and Shonbrun, their time on the stand should prove quite eventful, especially when we get to the cross. I think...

    That is grit. Yes, the second passed ball, while more the way they usually happen, was still a gut check.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    You warned us. That was not a fun video. Re Fitz, that is a serious limp he has coming off the field that supports your argument about the injury being potentially enough to end his career.

    The Era -- Day By Day

    In today's art-imitates-life-imitates-art entry, Dan Dunn just broke up a similar fifth columnist ring. Regarding Shadow, wouldn't he be too short for the army, but perfectly folliclely challenged for a Lichty strip? They were able to complete the work so quickly because the same crews got in...

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    Cavalcade from 1933 with Diana Wynyard, Clive Brooks, Una O'Connor and Herbert Mundin Even for fans of Classic Hollywood, 1933's Cavalcade falls short of its Best Oscar winning expectations, but it is still an outstanding effort that captures the sweep of thirty tumultuous years of the British...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    While the particulars change over time, Joe and Sally just engaged in, possibly, the most common conversation ever had by new New York City parents. It is evergreen. This could have been the spark for the book and movie "The Remains of the Day." Seems like the right decision, but that had to...

    Naomi By Junichiro Tanizaki originally published in 1924 In the novel Naomi, we see that many of the younger cosmopolitan Japanese of the 1920s had a fascination with everything Western. This caused twenty-eight-year-old, well-educated salaryman (good job as an electrical engineer) Jōji to...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Didn't Miss Webb already pass out when she was arrested or around that time? Here's why Shonbrun went down: "...defense attorney was unable to shake Hirschl's story in any particular..." The "justice" for the can hoarder could have come right out of a "Bungle Family," or even "Little Orphan...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    I'm guilty, too, of, until today, not thinking much about Mrs. Reich as a person, but the box of candy brought it home for me. I believe she was described as lonely in a much-earlier article. Today, I saw a lonely woman happy to have a friend who wanted Mrs. Reich to meet her fiancé so Mrs...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    If you ask each one of the four, none of them were in the room when she was murdered. Lost a bit amidst the sensationalism of the trial is the victim. Mrs. Riech, thinking she's coming to meet her friend's new fiancé, brings a box of chocolates (as a gift, I'm guessing), only to be robbed and...

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    No Man of Her Own from 1950 with Barbara Stanwyck, John Lund, Jane Cowl, Lyle Bettger and Henry O'Neill No Man of Her Own is a soap opera noir with an almost comically unbelievable plot that works because of the impressive talents of the actors and director. Barbara Stanwyck plays a single...

    Oh, so he wants them out of the parade altogether. At first I thought he was upset that they had some clothes on. I bet my idea would increase attendance. "What? You can get an application over there Senga, but sorry, I was wrong, the majorettes will be wearing clothes. Don't frown at me, I...

    There is definitely something to what he says. I started coming to NYC as a high school kid in the late '70s and then moved in a bit after getting out of college in the '80s. In that time, there has been a homogenization of the city. Back then, there were, of course, very expensive...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    Of course the case of the man with the same name, same job, same nationality and who lives in the same neighborhood as the deadbeat dad, but who isn't the deadbeat dad, winds up in Judge Solomon's court. You could easily see this being a storyline in the "The Bungle Family." He's been...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    The clerk who got held up on his first payroll assignment had to be thinking, "you got to be kidding me, this is my first time." We want a picture of the baby penguin. Steel wheels and electric power is looking pretty good right now. I hope they get some traction, but I can't get the image...

    The Hospital from 1970 with George C. Scott, Diana Rigg and Barnard Hughes If you feel as if society is coming apart today; if you think nothing works, there's no way this can be fixed, we're at each other's throats, it's all futile, nothing means anything, then you might take some comfort in...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    No kidding, I'm all for one of those handy-dandy charts the News does so well. It's funny how both papers have decided to cover this story as "the murder trial of Miss Webb and 'two other defendants'." Being a pretty young woman cuts both ways. Bloodsport. A Sally and Joe tour de force...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    The corruption is so blatantly obvious in this one that even the power of the state is having a hard time getting the story to go away. Long before I knew there was something call Film Noir, I saw "This Gun for Hire" as a kid in the 1970s, watching it on an old B&W TV with mediocre antenna...

    The Era -- Day By Day

    The frantic rush, with help from kind police officers, to find a minister or Justice of the Peace to marry "them" before the soldier has to be back at base is a scene right out of the movies. "See, we're patriotic Americans" Was Minsky the inspiration for the impresario, whose name escapes...
