Redford has a movie out but he says he's done. He's 81 I believe.

I got hip to Freberg much too late in life. An interesting and complex guy. More so if you can believe accounts from his son Donovan, whose legal name was Baby Boy Freberg until the age of 5. Apparently his parents were expecting a daughter, didn't have any male names ready, and just put if off for a while.

Interesting coincidence that Frank Sinatra's mom Dolly was killed in a chartered jet that crashed into the same mountain Dean Jr's plane flew into.

I enjoyed Esther Williams movies when I was young. Those were some stinkin' high places she dove from!

I just watched the trailer for "The Old Man and the Gun". Might as well have called it "Sundance Returns"! I'll watch anything Robert is in. My favorite of his is "All is Lost".

This reminded me of the movie review that Roger Ebert did on the film
"Absence of Malice" with newspaper reporter (Sally Field) and
supposed mob connected businessman (Paul Newman).

The review...
https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/absence-of-malice

Quote:
...One of my colleagues cornered me at the water fountain to say
indignantly that, whatever else you might think about this movie, you'd have
to admit that no reporter would ever sleep with a news source.

"Oh yeah?" asked a woman who was standing by. "Who was the news source?"

"Paul Newman," I said.

"I'd sleep with that news source in a second," she said.
...

P.S. I liked the movie. (I have a copy)

I hope you enjoy your Redford flick.

~ ~ ~

On Dino's F-4 crash

odd terrain there, San Gorgonio Mountain is 11,500 ft. high and almost in
direct line to a March Air Base runway, the worst of it is that the mountain's
prominence (height above the surrounding range) is 8,300 ft.

You think you're 8K about above the ground and then a slight turn...
WHAM!!!

I missed a bunch here the first time through.

Stan Freberg appealed to the boy in all boys.

Connie Stevens - Cricket on 77 Sunset Strip.

I thought I'm Easy by K.C. was a wonderful song. When he sings isn't that when Lilly is mesmerized while listening. Good actress!

Love 10,000 Mainacs rendering of Because the Night (A Springsteen song). I can't think of her name but there is a great live version of Patti Smith (Smythe), Bono and Springsteen singing a live, rippin' version of this.

If I am thinking of the correct film there is a great scene with Paul and Wilford Brimley in Absence... - when he actually was pretty young but looked old - playing a sort of an old-style lawyer.

Piecing it together.

Brimley brings his stenographerwith him.

After a few minutes of talking back and forth;

Brimley: "You that smart Mr. Galvin? Don't get too smart. I'm pretty smart myself." You have to see it,

Favorite R.R. movie - Probably the Sting, followed by Butch Cassidy. Love the part when they are cornered at the cliff. Newman says something about jumping and Redford says, "I can't swim." Newman, "Hell, the fall will probably kill you."

Liked Jeremiaha Johnson, also. And, All The President's Men.

Doesn't he oversee the Sundance Film festival?

Good stuff by everyone and nice to see Jonathan Winters mentioned. He had his own show in around '69-70 and had the Doors on once; that made perfect sense to me.

Bevo,

Good stuff !

Just one note. . .Cricket Blake aka Connie Stevens was actually a cast member of "Hawaiian Eye" and not "77 Sunset Strip". I imagine you were thinking of her duet " Kookie, Kookie ( Lend Me Your Comb") with "Edd Kookie Byrnes ,who was a cast member of "77 Sunset Strip". Both shows along with " Surfside Six" and "Bourbon Street Beat" all came out of that same Warner Brothers/ABC stable during the same era.


A related trivia question for you. . .What was "Kookie's full name ?


I was also glad to see a mention of Jonathan Winters on here. One of my idols as a kid. Still have 5 of his early comedy albums I bought as a teen in the early sixties. Listened to them so often I had memorized most every bit of those classics. Curious if you ever read his book of short stories from back in the late eighties entitled "Winter's Tales, Stories and Observations for the Unusual". The title says it all !! The dust jacket illustration is pretty unique as well. Without Jonathan Winters someone would have had to invent Robin Williams.

Yes, on all that. I am familiar with Winter Tales but never read it. One more to add.
Whatever one of those early detective shows she was on, she was hot!

He was Robin's hero. J.W. from Ohio - Cincy? I know he was a favorite a Jack Parr; just too young to have seen many of those. I liked him a lot when he wa doing his comedic acting.

Let me contemplate your trivia Q. I am rolling out the next mini - quiz right now 'cause I have some time.

Four correct... .

1. Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say 'a ooh-la-laa'.

2. Seventeen "bahs" to open this late 60's pop sweetie. Pretty strong song. Pretty 60's type babe on the album cover.

3. Another Susie in this song by Glenn Campbell from Delight, Ark.

4. Does anyone know where the love of God goes when the wind turns the minutes to hours? One of my favorite song lines.

5. Eye, yi-eye - eye - eye; yi- eye- eye- eye '57.

6. By The Orwells about a boy.

7. Made into a movie directed by Max Baer; pretty good job. Sensitive Robbie Benson, who was pretty good in the movie One On One.

8. Go ahead and hate your neighbor. Go ahead and cheat a friend. Do it in the name of Heaven. You can justify it in the end.

9. He's five foot one and he's six foot four. He fights with missles and with spears. He's all of 31 and he's only 17. Been a soldier for 1,000 years. OSU student; died way too young. Wrote great songs. Probably roomed with JB.

10. All the Federales say they could have had him any day. They only let him slip away out of kindness I suppose.

11. Their other "hits" were 1,2,3, Redlight and Yummy, Yummy. Not exactly Dylan lyrics. What's this simple children's game?

12. Roland was a warrior in the land of the midnight sun. With his Thompson gun for hire; there was fighting to be done.

13. Hey Romeo you nearly gave me a heart attack. He's underneath her window and she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back.

14. Dylan went to N.Y. to see him and wrote this song. About a crazy old world that's a comin' undone.

15. There is a young cowboy who lives on the range and his horse and his cattle are his only companions. Sweet, sweet song.

16. The night was clear and the moon was yellow. And the leaves came tumbling down.

17. Well, I was feelin' sad and feelin' blue and I ddin't know what in the world I was going to do. Them Commies was comin' around. Early Dylan back when he was doing his "Talkin....blues." About a political group.

18. Poppy Family.

19. Paul and Chevy's video. This was my daughter Alexandra's song when little.

20. McArthur's Park by Richard Harris. What was he called in THAT movie.

21. I laid on the dunes. I looked at the sky. When the children were babies and played on the beach. Dylan again.

22. Trapped in a mine that had caved in and everyone knows that the only ones left were Joe, me and Tim.

There you go; it often reflects things I like which doesn't help anyone. I will consider JB's trivia question.

As usual, several I'm drawing a blank on. Here are the exceptions:

3. "Where's The Playground, Susie?"
4. "Wreck Of the Edmund Fitzgerald" - Gordon Lightfoot
12. "Roland, the Headless Thompson Gunner" - Warren Zevon
22. "Timothy" - the Buoys

it's not Stagger Lee's bulldog, but the dog of the observer that sees Stagger Lee gambling on the corner.

c.s - 1. good tune but not correct for this quiz; my song came along a few years later.

Zunardo - great start

3. Where's The Playground Susie - I believe I have used this song on every quiz. Has that Everyday Housewife thing going for it or with it.

4. The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald - sure - The legend lives on from the Chippeaw on down from the big lake they call Getchegume. Nice poetic writing.

12. Wow - you must be a Zevon fan; Letterman adored him and his music. Such a great song writer and practically unknown to most. It is the great Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner. Lot of good songs by the irrepressible Warren Zevon. "Dave's the best friend my music's ever had." Still chokes me up.

22. Maybe the most unusual one-hit wonder ever with The Buoys not so veiled story of cannibalizing poor Timothy.

Well done, son!

pup - you are very interesting and cryptic - like a Dylan song, sometimes I have no idea what you are talking about (that's on me)
but I like it all!
Good one on No. 15., Stagger Lee

Monclova - you and mom have been missing in action. Hope that the mail is still being delivered and that your health, like mine, benefits from modern science!

1. Sure, it's Don and Phil. Kentucky boys , I believe. McCartney said many of The Beatles' harmonies had the Everlys in mind.

2. Another good choice as I loved Spanky and Our Gang but incorrect for this question. Right time period. The name of Number Two is a girl's name and I believe it came out in '69.

15. I listened to James Taylor talk about this tune and he explained that it was a gift to his family's first born of his brothers. etc. It was Alex Taylor's son and Alex and his wife named the boy James, after his famous uncle.
I don' t know if anyone has written any more wistful songs than James Taylor. This is one of the many. It is Sweet Baby James.

19. Yeah it 's the goofy You Can Call Me Al. Love the horns! And now you know my daughter's first name is Alexandra.

Good start by the early birds. There are certainly some obscure ones on here.

Oh, what a faux pas by me on #2. Not only did I get it incorrect, but I totally missed the fact that coldshoulder had hit the bullseye with his post well before my feeble attempt.

Is my reputation ruined? Did I have a reputation worthy of being ruined? Are these questions about myself meaningless? Yes, I think they are.

While Diva likes Redford...

The 'pup carries a torch for Olivia Newton-John...

True story...

One evening after work a few of us went to "Thurman's Bar and Grill" for eats.
During the course of conversation the question arose on 'Who would you leave your
spouse for?".

Now my wife knows that I always had a thing for Newton-John, and Kim Basinger.

So on my turn I answered..."Olivia Newton-John, Kim Basinger,and Robyn B."

Wife: "Who's Robyn B?"

'pup "A contract programmer on the 7th floor."

A burst of laughter from the rest of the group erupted.

(Robyn was attrictive, shapely, drove a 'Caddy', Pickup truck, and rode a Harley).

In honor of Robyn...

7. "Ode To Billy Joe"- Bobbie Gentry

9. " Universal Soldier" by Donovan, however I think you were looking for Phil Ochs since you added the OSU clue and the roommate reference, but I'm not aware of Phil Ochs recording this protest song even though that was his specialty of course. I could be wrong.

11. "Simon Says" - The 1910 Fruitgum Company. They did "123 Redlight" and "Indian Giver" but didn't have the hit "Yummy,Yummy,Yummy as that was a hit for the Ohio Express. The same two producers for both The Ohio Express and The Music Explosion, Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz produced the soundalike group 1910 Fruitgum Company. These groups known as 'Bubblegum" groups all pretty much sounded the same anyway.

cat lover - 10. they certainly were a nice duo on Pancho and Lefty. You want someone like Willie and Merle. This song should never be real pretty. There's a video of Dylan doing it with Willie. I was hoping someone would mention that a guy named Townes Van Zant wrote the tune. What a great name! (And writer.)

11. JB - I always got my bubble gum groups confused! The Ohio Express did do Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. Most of this niche was crummy, crummy, crummy. Although I remember the day I bought Beg, Borrow and Steal by The Ohio Express.

7. Ode to Billy Joe. The movie was good enough, right? You could just feel the heat in the song. This tune reeked of the weariness, dreariness and sweat of the South. I believe we did some time on Bobbi Gentry (so to speak). Seems as though she shut herself off from everyone and thing and sort of hides in a gated community. Wish I could!

Always nice to see Mansfield's Music Explosion mentioned. Little Bit Soul rocked!

Actually, I am not. At least of that song, anyway. One of my buddies would play that for me and sing the chorus incessantly. I hated it.

I did think "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" was a catchy song, though.

Check out Splendid Isolation - Warren's harmonica playing is worth the listen if nothing else but the song is very good - or his farewell song - Keep Me In Your Heart - with all of the other rockers stopping by to see him since they know what he is facing. Excitable Boy is another good song by Warren.

Wow, I got off to late start. I can a little bit to the quiz (probably 1 1/2 correct answers). Here goes:

5. Eye, yi-eye - eye - eye; yi- eye- eye- eye '57.
"Little Darlin'", The Diamonds (group from Canada, written by Maurice Williams ["Stay"], first "Latin beat rock hit", no drums

8. Go ahead and hate your neighbor. Go ahead and cheat a friend. Do it in the name of Heaven. You can justify it in the end.
"One Tin Soldier" (no clue on group)

ROCK ON!

OWK - 8. Little Darling was reserved for you. Very few people on here know that you and your buds crooned street corner doo wop harmonies acappella, and that to your peers you were simply known as Dion.

8. Yes, this is One Tin Soldier. Reminds me of the movie Billy Jack. I also believe the Smothers' Brothers did an animated fable-type story with this song one Sunday night.

I guess the song is corny but, boy, we sure could use some of the sentiment

Let's go with four new responses today and see if we can pull Diva in from the Rte. 23 Garage Sales.

Our road is five miles from Upper and less than a mile from Rte. 23 and it practically looks like a endless rummage sale as far as the eye can see. We just couldn't pull it together; the four of us can usually make a 100 bucks plus just off clothes no one wants anymore.

JB - looked up Universal Soldier. Buffy St. Marie as the writer. There are clips of the great Phil Ochs singing the tune. I believe I had it confused with I Ain't Marchin' Anymore. I loved those "call to arms" songs like the ones I mentioned, One Tin Soldier, Eve of Destruction, etc.

A new Colavito book coming out in the winter. Loved him; hated when he left.

Tribe traded Tommy John and Tommy Agee to get "The Rock" back in '65. John pitched close to 25 years and won 286 games, many of them meaningful; Agee went on to star for the Mets and was a big part of the Miracle Mets' Season ' in '69.

John made Dr. Job famous for the ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction surgery performed on him, a.k.a. Tommy John surgery.

Like Casey would say, "You can look it up."

Bevo,

17. "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues"- early Bob Dylan. terrific lyrics

18. " Which Way You Goin', Billy" - The Poppy Family

21. " Sara" - another of those Dylan tunes


Comment on # 8: ohiopup and OWK already correctly answered this with "One Tin Soldier" by Original Caste.

Original Caste wrote the song and had it chart first, however in the movie "Billy Jack" where the song really caught on, the song was performed by a group named Coven and that version is probably the version you refer to when you talk about it reminding you of "Billy Jack".

The version by Coven charted in 1971 while the Original Caste version charted in 1970 and peaked at #34 while the Coven version peaked at #26.


Finally, you should know that my OSU roomie Phil Ochs never once sang " Universal Soldier" in my presence, (to the best of my recollection anyway, lol).

JB - I believe you were napping when he hummed it.

Richard Lewis, Phil Ochs, you; the list of luminaries is practically endless.

Good calls on The Poppy Family with (18) Which Way You Goin', Billy. Of course, the two Dylan tunes, 17. Talkin' John Birch Society Blues, which the very talented but somewhat silly and youthful side of Bob and then , the heartfelt, mature break up song with his wife Sara, 21. called simply Sara.

Another good Bob "talkin'...blues" is Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues. Bob is something else!! The catalogue is vast and eclectic as can be.

Old girl friend, Barbara Lewis. Yes, I'm ready (more than ready ) to learn.

Amanda Bearse who lived next door on Married With Children.

All of us have a Robyn - maybe a few.

This difficult quiz is down to 2, 6, 13, 14, 20.

Four new guesses on Sat.
