  1. Sade could have asked him, “Rush, are you going to live near the Bijou for the next 56 years? Will it still be there, still be a movie theater, and will you still be interested in going to the movies twice a week? Will it remain under the same management, and if not, will the new management continue to honor passes issued before they took over? Was that pass even transferable in the first place?”

    But no, she just poo-poos the idea without explanation!

  2. Fifty bucks in 1940 is $877 today. That’s still not a bad deal, considering Rush is 14.

    Oddly enough, and I should have brought this out(!), is that 1939 was probably the greatest year for motion pictures in history. The Wizard of Oz, Stagecoach, Gone With the Wind, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Goodbye Mr, Chips, Dark Victory, Of Mice and Men, Ninotchka, Wuthering Heights, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Gunga Din, Drums Along the Mohawk, The Women, and The Four Feathers all came out. Rush could have spent hours telling Sade about the incredible leaps and bounds in film direction and acting – and that’s not even including Gloria Golden and Four-Fisted Frank Fuddleman!

  3. Hey, you’re Big Chief Wingtips from Twitter! Haha, glad to have you here. You know I’m a big baseball fan too. I notice Ted Turner on your avatar – are you near Atlanta?

  4. No, I just was amused by the story of the one game Ted “managed” the Braves — wearing a baseball uniform with wingtip shoes. (That’s where I got the name.) I’m actually a Reds fan, but I probably saw more Braves games growing up, due to the original SuperStation. I remember when Dizzy Dean was their announcer, and when Waite Hoyt was the radio voice of the Reds. I grew up in SE Kentucky, and got all the Reds games on WCTT in Corbin. Still live in Kentucky.

  5. I remember that day Turner was the manager 🙂

    So I suppose you were all about The Big Red Machine and Rose, Concepcion, Foster, Bench, Perez etc.? Oh and Don Gullet. 😉

  6. And Joe Morgan! Don’t forget Little Joe. Maybe the best of all, for a few years anyway. I started following them before that, though, when Frank Robinson was their big star.

  7. Wow how could I forget Joe? And Griffey. And Geronimo. And Sparky 🙂

    The Frank Robinson/Reds era is when I was very little.
