Reformed militia types? Above-board para-miltary? U.N.-sponsored New World
Order goons, or just nutters with a really expensive hobby?
The AR-15 isn't necessarily a cheap weapon to procure, and the fatigues may be surplus, but ...
Hoover, Obama, FDR, or Kennedy?
I'll agree with this on one condition: MUSICALS must be a part of this new effort~!
Seriously, TCM is all well and good for a night of small-screen (or even 42" 1080i...) entertainment at home with 'The Fam', but why not bring back some of the not-so-distant classics that haven't been dusted-off in decades?
Just think of it:
The King and I
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Guy and Dolls
An American in Paris
Singin' in the Rain
The Music Man
. . . and I could go on, but you get the idea.
Currently -and to scant fanfare from the general market- there's a 50th anniversary print of West Side Story out at a select dozen or so venues in the U.S., and I think that this one is really just the tip of the iceberg.
Now, as to why I'm getting this hankering for revivals I can't quite put my finger on it. But it probably has something to do with the fact that as a music student (Orchestra) in Junior and Senior High I was dragged out to these prints screening at old, decaying venues (typically located on or near the campuses of the nearby state/Land Grant college...) and wonder whether or not the band and orchestra kids of today's junior high schools have had access to these except on video and/or the small screen?
It's probably just the optimist in me, but I feel as if there would be a knock-on effect to a theatrical revival of these classics. Perhaps they might have an additional, therapeutic effect in inducing a desire for general audience material as well? Yeah, that right there is the settled-down, mature adult in me talking, but a crusty old codger can hope, right?
