I know posting has been light lately, but the bathroom tiling is almost done! Just have to grout, caulk, and install the water stuff. Even though we live in a (generally) boring ranch-style house, we are doing what we can to make it more interesting. This pattern kind of reminds me of a 1920s to 40s Deco style. You can’t really see the decorative tiles at the top. Maybe I’ll do a post on that later.

What you’re really here for is a Netflix update.

  • Breaking Away (1979) I’ve never been able to see this all the way through, but have always wanted to since I saw Siskel and Ebert gave it two thumbs up.
  • Flying Tigers (1942) John Wayne classic with him as a pilot. Not too bad a film as long you like John Wayne and movies from the 1940s.
  • Star in the Dust (1956) Looks like a TV western movie starring John Agar (you should know who he is), Mamie Van Doren(!) Richard Boone (“Have Gun, Will Travel”), and the recently deceased Harry Morgan. Instant only.
  • Fists of Fury aka The Big Boss (1972) Bruce Lee’s film debut.
  • Kaala Patthar (1979) A bunch of Bollywood or Bollywood-like movies were released on streaming this last week. This one happens to be old enough to fit on my list. Instant only.
  • Story of a Love Affair (1950) Director Michelangelo Antonioni’s first picture about love and jealousy.

  1. I wish somebody would remaster all of Bruce Lee’s Chinese-language films, restore the original audio, and add English subtitles. I can’t take the dubbed versions…I want to hear Bruce speak as himself.


    1. FF, I agree, that would be the way to see Bruce Lee.

      Thanks Bunchie, it’s been a ton of work, I had no idea when I started. I’ve had Breaking Away in my queue since I got Netflix. I have way too many movies in there than I have time for.
