Have a great week at the movies. :)


  1. Thanks for the tips on movies this week, Dawn. I've never seen Impact and am interested in it. I like Brian Donlevy. He was a good actor who did great work, like the sadistic Foreign Legion sergeant in "Beau Geste". He also did some stinkers, but then that happens to the best of them!

  2. Beck, Just look on the side bar to watch the film "Impact". I have not had the opportunity to watch it yet.

  3. Dawn, A couple of things . first I'll have to watch Impact, just for Charles Colburn Lol. Second ,Heddy takes up with A Air Raid Warren in the The Heavenly Body.The astrolger is a female.
