Posted on 12/02/2011 10:42:50 AM PST by Vision
This is your Turner Classic Movie channel alert! A Ronald Reagan classic, and the story of how Notre Dame football created the forward pass.
Tonight...Knute Rockne--All American(1940), 8pm est
"The story of legendary Notre Dame football player and coach Knute Rockne."
That picture and the football scenes were shot at Loyola High School in Los Angeles. In 1951 or 1952 “Trouble Along the Way” starring John Wayne as a football coach was filmed on the same field.
Purchased the DVD of Knute Rockne from Amazon a few years back. The DVD was corrupted right after the opening credits ran. Sent it back and got a replacement DVD. Exact same problem. Sent it back and got a refund. Amazon was very good and prompt about everything.
I have got to stop posting these at work...too busy...posted this as 12/3 instead of tonight 12/2.
NEWS FLASH! NEWS FLASH! NEWS FLASH!
Your posting states that the flick will air on Saturday, December 3 at 8:00 P.M.
Maybe where YOU live, but here in Pennsyltucky it is on the XFINITY listing for 8:00 P.M. FRIDAY evening; TONIGHT.
I appreciate the heads-up, but the incorrect data is troubling. If I had merely planned to VIEW it at the time you specified, I would have missed it. Thank God I programmed my DVR to record it, and in the process discovered that IT IS NOT scheduled for Saturday evening. It is scheduled for 8:00 P.M. EST THIS EVENING!
We’ll let you slide this time; but if it happens again, heads will roll!
After scrolling down the list of replies, I see that others found the erroneous data, too. So now I feel like Rosanna Rosannadanna. Except, I’m not going to say what SHE always said: “NEVER MIND!” I’m going to say, “Shape the #@%! up!
Good catch, I’m putting you on the ping list.
