By the time I got out my 1936 Continental Silenta events of the day had changed my day…
Using my Olympia Robust to talk about some WWII movies seems fitting.
The Royal #1 from 1911 is a great machine to sit down in front of its keyboard and admire its view. Then you get to type on it.
What if you felt that you could duplicate a master painting without any artistic training? Would you spend 8 years in the effort? Tim Jenison did and had it documented to show it was so.
This is something to see, behold and wonder about all at the same time. I give it four stars… two thumbs up… and GEE if I had the time and money…
The 8 movie pack claimed to be a Mickey Rooney tribute… but only two movies had Rooney in it… but then I spotted that one of the movies was called “Two Women” the movie Sophie Loren won her Oscar for. It was worth $5.00 to see why… and she deserved it.
If you liked the 1966 movie “The Professionals” take a look at the 1975 movie “Bite the Bullet”. Its about a 700 mile horse race and all through the movie people grow and mature and show good and bad sides of themselves. They care about the horses but at the same time are cruel… and the big winners are not those who cross the finish line first.
My Underwood-Olivetti Studio 44 is from 1966 so is the western movie “The Professionals”. Typed on one and watched the other. A great way to pass the time.
I recalled this movie well… or thought I did. Saw it today… the stars seemed so young that I thought it was a different movie. When did 1984 become 30 years ago?
On TV they showed the 1961 movie Pocketful of Miracles. At the Library they had “Lady for the a Day” both directed by Frank Capra. I enjoyed the old one best of all.
You never know what a typewriter will inspire you to type.
