Good morning!!!

I really wish we still had our nice camera...did any of you see the "harvest" moon last night?! It was breathtaking!!

Not much planned for the day, just studying & housework.

It is very foggy out this morning, quite beautiful & mysterious.

Hope you all have a blessed day!!!!

Pretty good deal! They also have a W.C. Fields set but I passed it up. I am not a huge fan but might go back for it just so i can see Ms. Gloria in Never Give a Sucker an Even Break.
All the Paramounts for $12---that's quite a score! You're in for a treat. We bought a set long before they were $12. If you haven't seen "The Cocoanuts," don't give up on it ... it's creaky, but it has good stuff in it. The "Cocoanuts" music is by Irving Berlin, by the way.

As for the Fields set, it's very good. If it's the same price as the Marx Bros., go for it. You might discover that Fields is really a very funny guy. If "The Old-Fashioned Way" is in that set, BUY IT. His juggling routine is in there, and it will astonish you. No camera tricks, just a supremely talented juggler. (AND you can see Gloria in "Sucker.")

If the Bing Crosby set with "If I Had My Way" turns up in the bargain bin, get that, too. More Gloria. (And you get to see Baby Sandy in "East Side of Heaven.")

You got that right! Fast, furious, full of world-class puns, and music by Kalmar and Ruby. Good stuff! Only thing that's missing are the solos by Chico and Harpo. Hail Freedonia!

No doubt lots of items will be half off at the 'Pines.
Matches Carl's wit.
(Sorry, that was mean.)
Someone called me a wit once.
They were half right.

I have been debating on picking up the Fields collection. For that price, it is hard to pass it up, even if I haven't been his biggest fan in the past.

Speaking of classic film stars, I also forgot to tell you a story...but it is a little long so I'll post it in the Vintage Film thread as to not clutter up this thread.
