Re: Murder by Death & Clue Movie Similarities

It's been a while since I've seen Murder by Death, but I do remember being quite entertained by it.
Murder by Death premiered in 1976, while the Clue! movie didn't come out until 1985.

Clumsy, inept ones can be entertaining on occasion, but in general I prefer observant, competent ones.

Re: Radio Personalities

I'm not really all that big a fan of any of the ones listed for the poll, though I am aware of who they are. (I'm assuming "The guy from The Partridge Family" is suppose to have been Danny Bonaduce, but I can' remember if I actually heard any of his radio broadcasts.)

Re: white castle

There use to be a White Castle in New Jersey not too far away from where I use to live.

Unfortunately, it was eventually replaced by an Acura dealership or something.

I still get the frozen / microwavable ones they sell in grocery stores every now and then.

Re: Best Christmas Movie?

I enjoyed Miracle on 34th Street (the 1947 version with Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle and a very young Natalie Wood as Susan Walker, the daughter of the character played by Maureen O'Hara).

Re: The Greatest Detective of them All

Since the question is about the "Greatest Detective of them All", I had to go with Sherlock Holmes. After all, he came before the others listed, so he would definitely be the trend-setter of the bunch. If it was a question of " Favorite Detective of them All " my answer these days would be different.

Re: The Thin Man

I really enjoy The Thin Man . William Powell and Myrna Loy made the perfect Nick & Nora Charles for me. I'd be afraid if Hollywood tried to remake the movie these days. To anyone who hasn't seen the movie, the dinner scene towards the end where Nick figures out the killer is well worth watching. htt...

Re: Do you like silent and/or old films?

While I'm not as enamored with the silent movies, I definitely enjoy older movies.

Especially many of the ones from the 1930s-1950s.

Perhaps he’s not quite from the right era, but much closer than modern day at least. If it's a D I c k e n s' Fair,...

I believe Halloween City is connected to Part City.

Maybe they just had it for Halloween and not for year-round sales?

Reading any mystery books lately?

I've noticed Agatha Christie being mentioned in some previous threads (both the books and movies based on her books), but are there any other mysteries (either series or stand-alone books) that people are reading these days? I'm currently reading a book titled A Pinch of Poison by Frances and Richar...

I, too, am more of a cat person. Had cats as pets most of my life, and in general they involve less maintenance if you're not home all the time or if it's really nasty weather outside. Several of the cats (including my current one) have been strays. No purebreds or pet shop buys (at least as far as ...

Any idea if/when a paperback version may be released?

(Yeah, it may not be that expensive for a hardcover, but I'm assuming a tpb would be even cheaper, and I don't read e-books.)
