Hi, this is Lu again. Just wanted again to complain about how our Beloved Star, John Garfield gets treated by TCM. Tomorow is his birthday and I looked a little bit at the TCM grid and I am not surprised not any of his movies honoring him on his birthday. HOW SAD!!!! I am so sad that he is totally forgotten. I love you.

Hi, this is Lu again. I am sorry if I keep on complaining about how our Beloved Star, John Garfield is treated but I can't help it.

They advertise that Warner Brothers is havig an online tour of the studio, I went on the website because I was curious, they have 3 different sections but I discovered you have to pay for it.

Also when they advertise it on TCM, there is NOT ONE mention of John Garfield and also when they put out a book on the anniversary maybe the 50th anniversary of Warner Brothers, also not one mention of him.

Were they or are they mad at him for not signing a new contract with them and that is why they keep snubbing him?????

And after all he did by starting the Hollywood Canteeen with Bette Davis, and going overseas to entertain the troops, that's how the United States government says thank you by accusing him of being a Communist.

Hi, everyone, it's Lu. I just wanted to say, I can't believe that TCM is playing 3 of our Beloved Star, John Garfield's movies tonight although they start at around 2 AM. But they are playing Destination Tokyo, Pride Of The Marines and Air Force. I don't know, is anybody complaining to TCM, that's why they are playing his movies. I couldn't believe it when I saw it on the TCM grid. However, I don't know if they will make it to TCM On Demand. I can't believe also that The Breaking Point has been on On Demand for almost a month. I think tomorrow is the final day. Just wanted to let you know if anybody reads these posts.

Now Iím
Grandmother to 3 wonderful granddaughters.
I think of John Garfield often as he was in a class of his own.. top notch!
I have such fond memories of the fellow fans that I was most fortunate to connect with and of course our luncheon with Julie.

RIP Lori Moore and husband

Hi, this is Lu again. I know I talk about our Beloved Star, John Garfield a lot on this website, well, why not it is a website devoted to him. But I just wanted to mention and congratulate his daughter Julie Garfield for all the work you have done throughout the years, talking about your father and trying to keep his memory alive You have also endured a lot of heartache with all the family tragedies you have endured. I just wanted to say thank you for everything since you seem to be the one who has survived.

Hi, this is Lu again. I just wanted to mention that I was watching The John Garfield Story documentary on our darling Beloved Star, John Garfield which happened to be on the Internet and I was so sad to see what he went through towards the end of his life. For somebody who was such a caring person, it is NOT fair to what he had to endure. You could see that he was a very troubled person who was not a well man. If I had been older and knew of him and knew what he was going through, I would have definitely been there for him. It is a horrible feeling when you are going through bad times and you feel that you are all alone. Rest In Peace, darling John Garfield.

At the end of the documentary, it was mentioned that he had been cleared and Clifford Odets said that he would always love him as did his daughter, Julie stated that "I will always love you, daddy. Well, Mr. John Garfield, this is Lu, I will always love you, too. Rest In Peace!!!!!

Hi, this is Lu again. Since today is my birthday, I didn't want it to go by without posting a message on this website.

I still feel terrible on how our Beloved Star John Garfield is being treated years after his sudden and tragic passing.

When I look at the TCM grid, very rarely do I see his movies being played. They were playing other actors movies one after the other and sometimes they are repeated. They didn't even have Air Force or Pride Of The Marines on on Veterans Day. I am so glad that his movies are back on the Internet. And even when they are played, they are not on TCM On Demand.

Once again to our Beloved Star, Rest In Peace. There are still some people who know you and remember you and love you. And that you were ahead of your time.

Hi, this is Lu again. I just wanted to say to our Dear Beloved Star, John Garfield, I AM SO SORRY YOU ARE BASICALLY FORGOTTEN. I was reading on a website that states that. I feel so sorry for your daughter that for many years talked about you so people would remember you but unfortunately it hasn't worked. I will say though that there are some people who DO remember you and have only wonderful things to say about you but I guess that isn't enough. But I assure you that I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!! You were a wonderful, talented and underrated actor who paved the way for other actors such as James Dean who unfortunately passed away very young as well as Marlon Brando among others. REST IN PEACE, I LOVE YOU!!!!! I just wish the people that used to post here would again. I am SO sorry at what happened to you.

Hi, this is Lu again. I just wanted to say I feel very bad as you all know about how our Beloved Star, John Garfield has been treated. Not only that nobody post on this website anymore but TCM hardly plays his movies and now I can't find his movies on the Internet any more. I always looked forward to watching them. And no "big" guys in the movie industry see fit to make a biography movie on his life. It seems like he is totally forgotten. And as I mentioned before, although a lot of children of famous movie stars are going in to show business to follow their famous parents but our Beloved Star's daughter didn't have any success when she tried to launch a film or television career it seems because she is the daughter of John Garfield even though she is a very talented actress in her own right. If it seems that I am bitter maybe I am.

Hi, this is Lu again. When I was walking outside today, I was thinking about our Beloved Star, John Garfield, today and was thinking if he had lived to be maybe just 80 years old, that would have been 1993 he would have been around to observe all the changes that had occurred til then including computers maybe not iphones or smart phones but at least cell phones, bottled water and so on. I wonder what he would have thought. At least he wouldn't have been around when they destroyed the World Trade Center (Twin Towers). And how the music has changed since he was growing up. Just wondering.

Hi all, this is Lu again. Dennis it was nice to see your post again. I hope you do it more often. Nobody Live Forever is playing on TCM right now.

I just wanted to say as well, our Beloved Star, John Garfield had wonderful principles and was very loyal to his friends and didn't tell on any of them who were or might have been involved with the "Red Scare" in the 1950's. Because he wouldn't "tell" on them that is what ruined his career. And later on after he died, he was cleared of all charges. How sad.

Also Warner Brothers because of the roles that they gave hims to play, didn't see fit to film them in color. How ironic, other actors that he acted with were in other movies that were filmed in color. I think that is why his movies aren't played very often. At least that is what I read.

Hi, Dennis, it's Lu again. So nice to see you posting. When I watch Out Of The Fog, I think to myself, what a waste. And I smile when I see him in Saturday's Children, a completely different character which goes to show he could play so many different characters. IT IS A SHAME WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM. I agree he was one of the GREATEST actors. And I feel bad that his daughter who is VERY TALENTED couldn't succeed in movies. I wish we could all get together again. It comforts me to think that even though nobody knows him today, we got together at the Warwick Hotel to pay homage to him.

You are correct Lu about the inferior roles Warners put him in! Jack Warners said no as Columbia wanted him for Golden Boy and he was born to play that role...Warner said no! William Holden got it and to this day I wont watch it.After he left Warners he made some of his best films,,,Body and Soul...Force of Evil and He ran all the way. Then HUAC ruined him even knowing he was guilty of nothing...Hollywood turned their backs on one of the best actors this country ever had...very sad indeed!
