I'm sorry, but Lon Chaney was a fucking hack who shouldn't have been remembered in 1939, much less 2009.

Please don't celebrate him, or his "work," anymore.

He couldn't have carried my scabbard . . . .






Aaarrgggh -- I hate that guy. . . . . !

This is definitely not what Sir Paul had in mind when he wrote that tune.

Don't worry Doug, I just read moirafinnie's appraisal of the restored Robin Hood over on TCM, and you'll be happy to know I'm stoked to see it. Even after reading what Allan Dwan said about you.

swac -- I think that Robin Hood is ideal viewing for Americans on Thanksgiving.

Even Allan Dwan, to whom I wish a Happy Thanksgiving and deeply-felt efforts to fuck himself!

Sorry, TSut -- I hate to work blue, but these sonsaguns do it to me every time. It all starts with that bastard Chaney . . . .
