Follow-up to WWII and Gangsters - Gentle Years

Remember the song stuck in my head?  I had to buy a new copy of A Town Like Alice (and watch it all, of course) because a certain two year old who likes to collect rocks put one in our VCR and it then ate my tape.  The machine is fine, which is good since it's also our DVD player, and I've satisfied my need to hear the theme song for a while.

G also found out today that his latest book, Public Enemies, is going to be made into a movie starring Christian Bale and Johnny Depp.  I'm sure it will be a good one.

    G & Me

    G loves to read history of the American West and loves to watch movies that are western, action, intrigue, comedy.  He doesn't have favorites.  He does not like anything that is musical (though he loves music), romantic, or related to aviation.  His favorite time period is from the Civil War to the turn of the 20th century.

    I am eclectic in my reading but do not like science fiction or police stories.  In movies I like drama best, but also like some of the same things that G does, and I like both romantic movies and those that relate to aviation.  My favorite time periods are probably the 1830s and 1840s, the post-Reconstruction era to the eve of WWI, WWII, and the late 1950s-forward.  My favorite books are Gone With the Wind, My Antonia, All Quiet on the Western Front, A Lantern in Her Hand, and Nigger by Dick Gregory.  My favorite movies are The Memphis Belle, Return to Me, Since You Went Away, Steel Magnolias, Nicholas &  Alexandra, Sometimes in April, and  The Winds of War (there are just so many that this is incomplete) .
