For the moment, he is stymied by logistics. Every time they try a new bank they are thwarted. Back story: one of the scammers has a perpetually frozen bank account. Dunno why. The story is sometimes convoluted and changes. So when questionable funds appear, such as someone else's benefit funds are deposited into hubby's account, the bank investigates and limits hubby's account access. Hubby gets mad and finds a new bank that will presumably let hum do whatever he and the scammers want to do. Just now, he is without an account and cannot access his own, legitimate funds. At least he cannot give the money away....

1941's Murder by Invitation was not highly rated on IMDB, but the beginning and ending were excellent. Even back then, people had been trying to do away with their rich old relatives and sometimes going about it in a clumsy and foolish manner. This movie's main character, dragged to a competency hearing by youngsters who simply did not know which one was Shinola, quickly won over the assembled onlookers and the judge. Vinegar and apple pie, indeed. That was priceless! Fast forward to the ending, and how it seemed oddly like an unrelated prequel or foreshadowing of The Milagro Beanfield War... but only in retrospect to a first time viewer many years later...

It links to Peter Ustinov. I finally remember it, long after someone posted 'cantata' on another thread. Pardon me, but what is that instrument? grinning smiley

It's good that the banks are on top of things. I hope he finally gets the hint.

How is he paying his bills if he can't access his money?

As far as I know, he isn't doing that.

Alternating Poirot and Marple. Just finished Murderville. Robbie Coltrane and all were excellent in that. The story unfolded at a comfortable pace, and at the end I felt comforted. My mom did not live that life, but if she had a similar experience she would have left behind a clue, or something, that would help someone later.

There is a very good series on Netflix called "Behind Her Eyes." The first few episodes make no sense but are actually laying a good foundation for the series.

I just found 'Finding Alice' on Acorn. It is sad, relatable (who can relate to searching for the 'fridge in the unfamiliar smart house on your first night there, considering that the designer/your partner just died and can't tell you anything?!) and intriguing. As Alice learns to live in her new-to-her smart house, she learns to live in the larger world without Harry. At the halfway point in the series. Alice is making slow but real progress through the family and legal tangles on the way to... whatever is next. It is time to watch more and find out what is next for Alice.....

I watched that awhile ago. Good series.

Netflix has a new series called, "The Girl in the House...." It was very good for a lazy Saturday.[/quote]
And... back to one episode of Pie in the Sky. Finally it streamed a full episode! I had seen the available episodes, and it is time for a re-watch.

I'm watching Donnie Darko. I was waiting to see the Rapid Rabid Rabbit.

Wrong movie!

Hah. I found a few of the Garage Sale Mysteries. I still want the complete set of sixteen (or so?) movies, but I will just be thrilled that I have a few to watch now.

Drama-Mystery-Thriller fans might check out a new series called Harry Wild. Jane Seymour is recently retired lit prof Harriet "Harry" Wild. Incorporating a few fave themes such as [useful but usually a pita] amateur sleuth, equally bright and crotchety ol' academic, family situations, and strong woman, this series will unfold with new episodes every Monday in April. I am watching the first episodes on Acorn. I do not know if this is available elsewhere. Any interested person could check into that.

There is a series of "Jesse Stone" made for TV movies starring Tom Selleck about 10-15 years ago that are pretty good.

Also, if you like the story of Anne Frank, watch the documentary "Corrie ten Boom: A Faith Undefeated" on Amazon Prime. There is a 1975 movie on Netflix that tells the story but it just follows the documentary, which is shorter and just as informative. The movie is only rated 3.9 on IMDB.com.

Years ago, my son asked me to sit through a viewing of Donnie Darko with him, and I did. I never did quite understand the movie! If I'm going to watch a giant rabbit, I'll stick to the old classic, "Harvey"!!

Right now, I'm watching "Fear Strikes Out", the baseball movie about Jimmy Piersall when he had his nervous breakdown with the Red Sox. It's on Pluto's Classic Movies channel.
Never heard of Donnie Darko until this thread. Love the old Harvey movie. Also love the toon flick with Roger Rabbit, Bob Hoskins, and the inimitable Jessica Rabbit. If I could, I would be her when I grow up. Alas.

Don't laugh. Crown Lake is back for Season 3 on Tuesday, April 12. Anyone who did not live in a bubble might relate to this series about growing up and learning. The things we have to learn... oh, my!

Again, not a movie. This links to the Pointer Sisters, Vicki Carr as their mother, and Carol Burnett as Cinderella (with more than a little little soul!) Tina Turner and Cher combined, and Fairy Godmother does the Schlump, and Elfin is a square, oh, my!

All is well. I am all caught up with Harry Wild and the season 3 opener of Crown Lake. Must wait another week for next installments.

I must say. Nostalgia tv is quite a little healing factor. To each his/her/their/its own, but I think everyone would agree that there is something for everyone, somewhere in the vast realms of Youtube.

So now I have a few network weekly movies. On now? 1982's Prime Suspect. Viewer comments range from sweet nostalgia to more stentorian calls for the media, the investigators, and all the rest of us to get it right. If we want to get the baddies, we must get the actual baddies. Let's not do to anyone what was done to Mike Farrell's character in this flick, eh?

I also wanted you to note the McDonald's commercial at the beginning. Who would not get off their gazunkus, skip a line, and sing a chorus? I will try to link to that... smiling smiley *hopskotches* dances on the sidewalk*
