    I watched this on TCM. It is brand new to me.

    Battle of the Bulge


    This is a horrible, inaccurate movie of this Battle. I watched it for Henry Fonda, Robert Ryan and Robert Shaw. It was long, boring and incorrect. And why - WHY- did it focus so much on the Nazi anthem? I thought that this was a movie about the American part of the Battle? No........

    Recommended only for people like me who insist on seeing EVERY movie made by favourite actors, directors, etc. Normally I have a lot to say and write long reviews, but no need to do that here....

  • Suspicion



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I've seen this Hitchcock classic several times. I prefer Hitchcock movies to Haloween movies. I am a fan of suspense rather than horror.

    I recorded this movie earlier in the year.

    Fontaine and Grant meet on the train. Despite the fact that he needs her help to get a firsrt class ticket, she seems surprised throughout this film that Grant is not rich. He has been sponging off of rich friends to get into things like the Hunt Ball.
