  1. Actually, it was not a B movie. It's production cost, in1950, was right at the average production cost at the time. Richard Widmark was an A list star and Elia Kazan was an A list director. The movie won an Oscar for writing. The movie budget was not higher because back then most of the players were under contract to the studio.
  2. Wisdom Lovers United (or untied)

    I would suggest you brew yourself a nice cup of hot tea and then enjoy it with a fresh prune danish. That should calm you down by the time you're finished and we can try to have a conversation. It's highly unusual for someone with only 9 posts on the forum to feel such anger that they are ready to just walk away. Maybe it would help if you told us a bit more about yourself, what attracted you to the forum, and what you were seeking to accomplish as a member here.
  3. Wisdom Lovers United (or untied)

    Let me welcome you to the forum. You don't seem to understand that on this forum, as well as other forums, perhaps most forums, it is not uncommon for conversations, in response to comments, to tackle subject matter some what different than the original subject of a thread. These, for want of a better term, digressions are not hijackings of a thread, they are simply the natural progression of a discussion. You also need to understand, if you do not already, that these conversations are not private. If you respond to a post by Larry, then Harry and Barry have a right to post responses to your post. If you are uncomfortable to the freewheeling nature of this forum, the forum may not be the best fit for you. However, I would encourage you to stay and participate and get to know the other members.
  4. Light and Darkness

    If that is what it says.
  5. זיכרונו לברכה May his memory be for a blessing
  6. Personally, I dictate everything to my secretary Fawzo, but I'm hoping to learn the alphabet soon.
  7. It doesn't really matter, but all the ULC stuff he has his undies in a knot over comes the Monastery.org website.
  8. Welfare

    Actually you don't know. You cannot take your individual experience, true as it may be, in your part of the country, and extrapolate a universal truth from it. Your story, it seems to me, is about a crack addict lying to obtain funds, apparently to feed her addiction, nothing more. And I would point out that even crack addicts can have children, even crack addicts can run out of gas and need money to fill the tank. I'd rather give someone $5 and be wrong than not give someone $5 and be wrong to the detriment to someone's well being. But, of course, I am espousing a Jewish viewpoint in regard to my obligations to other people. What we can agree on is that you do have too much pride. As for race issues, I don't follow every thread so if you could point where they have occurred I would be most appreciative.
  9. "besorah Of Yahushu"

    Besorah is not Hebrew for a message or for testimony. Report? Depends upon how you mean it. And no, Jesus' name in Hebrew does not mean Yah is our Deliverer. But what the heck, what do I know? I'm just a simple rabbi.
  10. I never get Bible requests.
  11. Given that the Torah consists of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers,and Deuteronomy it's hard to understand how you could have read the Bible cover to cover more than once, but only have read "most" of the Torah.
  12. Welfare

    Are you done? No one called you an idiot. No one called you an evil person. No one called you crazy and no one suggested you be incarcerated. We simply told you that we have trouble understanding what you are writing and that if you can write standard English please do so - and if you cannot, please avail yourself of whatever opportunities you may have to become more proficient. For that, you call down the wrath of G-d on us? You say that you are an adult. Can you respond as an adult?

    Lordie, Building on Brother Kaman's thoughts, if one writes, one writes to one's audience. It doesn't matter how fluent, for example, and skilled in French an individual may be --- if that individual is writing to audience whose knowledge of French consists of "oui" and "monsieur", and that indiviudal wants to be understood by that audience, it makes no sense to write in French. Furthermore, it is the height of arrogance to dismiss their inability to understand with a remark that it is not the individual's problem, rather it is the audience's problem for being uneducated and the members should go and learn French. No matter how important what you want to say may be, it is going to fall on, metaphorically, deaf ears and you are going to find yourself marginialized on the forum, if you continue to post what comes across as incoherent, rambling babble.
