Thank you for the concern. I am thinking over my weeks banishment. I believe it was the "funny post of the day" sending it to 4-6 different posters instead of just posting it once for everyone. Also the sending out flicks daily. So now I just do the MQ (which can be for anyone on here that chooses). I thought you might have seen my posts in 1948 September movies as found at a local newspaper ad. I give MeTV credit for finding and posting stories like that. Right up my alley plus JustJeff posting the Old Time Radio link.

Can you give me the location of the Horror movies that MeTV is showing in the coming weeks? I can't seem to find it. I thought there was a listing for those.

" Thank you for the concern"
I was just reading/ thinking in the collective. Not that someone/anyone would read it that way....but you never know.
Can you give me the location of the Horror movies that MeTV is showing in the coming weeks?

Here's the schedule for the month Shows and movies.

I think that sort of shot down Abbott and Costello Meets Frankenstein. It's on their list. Oct 14th 8 P.M. No way I am showing it before then even on the MQ. Though I have another movie which was going to be Killer Klowns From Outer Space. I replaced it with another movie for tonight. Showing them is like bites the hand that feeds you (MeTV). It will be after they are shown by a couple of weeks or so. Before when I sprinkled in TZ or other tv shows I made sure they are months before that episode comes on. After 8 I might just put on Sorry, Wrong Number for posters. Then I will delete it Sun night. Seemed like everyone on that page liked those type of movies back then (1948). Thanks for the info.

Hey Tex! I can’t seem to locate Oceans Eleven in my emails. Would you be so kind as to resend it to me, pretty please? …and thank you 😉

I'd be happy to. Last I looked for it I still had it. BRB.

Yes I do. You can click for full screen once played in bottom right. All movies are available to download. This one probably won't be taken down since it is sort of coded and has been around for 8+ years. Have fun.

Extra credit question: There's a spelling error on Elvis's gravestone. What word is misspelled?

Extra extra credit question: Elvis made 31 movies in which he played a character (or a pair of identical twin characters), rather than concert and documentary films. Which one film out of all 31 is not available on home video?

1. His middle name? 2. Elvis vs. Godzilla
daDoctah Bapa1 20 days ago
Your serious answer is correct (Elvis' middle name is Aron, with one A; the gravestone has it with two).

And let's have another question to keep things moving right along:

Elvis's first #1 hit single was "Heartbreak Hotel". After it vacated the #1 spot, what artist took his place at the top?

I've known that for years.

Dolores Hart actually gave Elvis his first on-screen kiss in “Loving You”. She later
went into the Benedictine monastery Regina Laudis and is Mother Dolores.

15 out of 15. Growing up in the 60s there were three camps - Beatles. Stones and Elvis. I was a Beatles kid growing up. Only listened to the "early rock Elvis". I have since grown a deep appreciation for "later Elvis". Never met him. Did see him once., from a distance In his backyard at Gaceland, smoking a big cigar. I waved and he waved back at me. Smiling. I havw known several people who worked with him. Everyone adamantly stated he was a very nice man. And I believe it to be so. He was the King.

Tough questions for this Elvis fan.

You are wrong on 9! Elvis debuted on Stage Show hosted by the Dorsey brothers and produced by Jackie Gleason! Sullivan was fourth after Milton Berle & Steve Allen! Ed wasn't even on Elvis' first Sullivan appearance! He was in the hospital so Charles Laughton took over!
PS If you want to split hairs, Elvis did Louisiana Hayride in 1955, but it was only a local broadcast!

Wasn't that a radio program?

I got 5/15. I got #2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, and 15. I guess I didn't know that much about EP, as I thought I did.
