By the way,

Mr. Redford refused to play in any movie unless he was some sort of 'hero'.

That's why I love Paul Newman....he played Eddie Felson in 'The Hustler'....he played a very self-centered rancher in 'Hud'....he played a real loser in 'Cool Hand Luke'.

Robert Redford will not take chances, neither politically nor in his acting career.

I admire Paul Newman. I miss him.

Robert Redford is a coward.

Why, Robert Redford, of course. :-)

Who is not as good as Paul Newman, apparently.

Yeah....I suppose you’re right. I began to think I had missed out on something and should know why Robert Redford was worth wasting time on.

Maybe one of you can help out here. Redford or Newman? Gable or Bogart? Ginger or Mary Ann?

Newman made his career out of playing anti-heroes and chipping away at the virtues and traditions that made this country great.

Redford wants to be a hero but is little more than a prissy blowhard.

Both were/are affiliated with far-left ideology and anti-American organizations.

Who needs Hollywood?

Real heroes are all around you . . .

Remember that puppet dog that advertized Nestles chocolate in the 60’s? He didn’t like Redford either.

Very good! It worked! I clicked on the link and went to your website. Especially liked the last bit on the homepage, "I don't write blogs." Inspiring!

Regarding Robert Redford & Ilk, Husband and I just immediately and mutually decided NOT to go see "Appaloosa," a new Western movie being chatted-up among friends and staring Viggo Mortensen (Hidalgo, Lord of the Rings).

I went online to learn a little more ... "Appaloosa" is directed by and also stars ED HARRIS a slimy rat pimple whose extreme talent as an excellent actor (he's awful damned good, I have to admit) is triply exceeded by his extreme talent for being sh*theel political ass-wipe. He's worse than Alec Baldwin, and who thought such a thing was possible?

Paul Newman was an even better actor than Ed Harris. Paul Newman was also a gutsy guy and humanitarian at heart. His politics were stupid, but he was a gentleman. He done good.

So now you want my real opinion?

Holy cow! Where did you dig that up?

Imagine a kids' show done by Robert Redford instead of Andy Devine. He'd be instructing them in Global Warming and making them sad, scared, angry, and hopeless!

Wow. Those are wild! Nice to see them preserved in cyberspace! What year, do you know? Mid 1950s? Those must be from someone close to Andy’s family or the studio, you think? Very cool. And kind of scary!

“Andy’s Gang” was a sorry, low-budget show that was usually padded for at least 20 of the 30 minutes by a banal live-action movie. All told, there were 156 episodes of Smilin’ Ed and Andy’s long-running show!

Variety was unamused when Andy appeared. In a review by “Jose” on August 24, 1955 the paper complained about the filmed adventures and then the comedy: “Accompanying Devine’s contribution are bits of clowning with mechanical toys. Aside from this business being not too funny, Devine is much too big to be playing with dolls.”

However, on November 27, 1957, reviewer “Ron” (no relation!) praised the “dancing cat, flying hamster and magic gremlin...Froggy the Gremlin comes on to introduce cousin Harry, a live orangutang. Without use of animation Harry mimicks what’s being said or vice versa and the outcome is quite amusing...Devine is affable fun to look at and has the ability to make a pal of every young viewer...”

Most filmed adventures in the series featured the exploits of Gunga Ram (Nino Marcel) an Indian boy who was usually having trouble with elephant poachers or deadly scorpions. Nino also played “Little Fox” the Sioux Indian, but his elephant boy character seemed to be more popular. He even made a movie using the character: “Sabaka” (1955) co-starring Boris Karloff and Victor Jory!

For the Indian adventures, Nino’s sidekick Rama (no jokes about his last name being Lama Dingdong) was played by the beloved Vito Scotti, who often appeared live on the show in the guise of a chef, music conductor or some other eccentric lesson-giver.He’d politely lecture the kids...and Froggy would call out terrible suggestions that Vito would instantly repeat and follow...only to become enraged at how he’d been fooled!

Fascinating! Expectations of kids were so different then, it seems. I think the second reviewer was right. “Affable” is a good word for it. The one where he can’t keep from eating the cream puff is funny, and even the mouse on the motorcycle is funny — just paced to a much less rushed attention span! It was a different era.

Squeeky the motorcycle mouse was the best. The guy who had the bunk above me in basic training made a sound like Squeeky’s motorcycle every night. It’s tough not holding a grudge.
