Hi, this is Lu. I just wanted to say this to our Beloved Star, John Garfield who is up in Heaven on the 67th Anniversary of his passing, I am sorry that even though there is nothing more to be said and nobody seems interested in trying to have you rediscovered and TCM only occasionally plays your movies, I would hope that some of the people who used to post on this website would post something especially today. But if not, I am glad that I am writing something. When I look at your movies, I feel sad as to what happened to you. Most of the off spring from so called Hollywood Super Couples are making it in show business. So I will say again, Rest In Peace on the 67th Anniversary of your passing, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!! And I will not stop posting.
Signed One of your biggest fans, if not the biggest.

I just wanted to say something about Warner Brothers. In my opinion they ruined our Beloved Star, John Garfield's career by giving him all those gangster movies at the beginning of his career and filming his movies in black & white. I think if they had given him much better movies to act in and filming maybe part of his movies in color like maybe Pride Of The Marines, his movies would have been played more often and as a result people would know him a lot better than now. He was a superb and a very underrated actor. I read some place that color movies have a better chance of being played a lot more than black and white movies. This is just my opinion. The Postman Always Rings Twice was on TCM this past week and so was Oceans Eleven with Frank Sinatra which was in color. And of course, The Postman Always Rings Twice was not sent to TCM Video On Demand but of course Oceans Eleven was and even before it was finished playing on TCM itself.

Hi, this is Lu. Just wanted to wish our Beloved Star John Garfield a HAPPY 106TH BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN.

And even though as years go by TCM is showing less of his movies, I just wanted to say SHAME ON THEM FOR NOT EVEN
CELEBRATING HIS BIRTHDAY BY SHOWING SOME OF HIS MOVIES. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

Thank God I can get most of his movies on the Internet.

Even though I did post last week, I didn't want the actual day go by without posting something.

I also read that he didn't want to "Go Hollywood". He didn't want to buy a house in Hollywood, he just wanted to rent.

I just wanted to mention also when I see him in films especially Four Daughters, I can't believe the fate that was given him especially when so many people loved him back in the 1940's. And when so many people showed up at his funeral. I can't believe that nobody wanted to bother making a movie about him especially since they thought so highly of him.

Hi, this is Lu again. I am wondering if TCM is going to mention our Beloved Star, John Garfield's birthday which is coming up pretty soon, March 4th and play some of his movies or are they going to completely ignore him like they did last year.

Also I feel sorry for his daughter, Julie Garfield who seemed to never attract stardom. She is a very talented actress and if she is anything like her father would have probably made a name for herself in the Entertainment Industry. I remember back in the late '60's she was interviewed by Barbara Walters on the Today show and she stated that whatever she tried doing, it always came back to her wanting to be an actress, it ran in the genes. She did however, star in several Broadway plays, one being Uncle Vanya. And of course, she did have bit parts in some movies and she did a TV series as well.

Hi, this is Lu again. I know that Barbara and Dennis said the reason that they don't visit this website anymore is that what else is there to say about our Beloved Star. John Garfield. I understand where you are coming from but let me explain from my point of view where I am coming from. I thought as you said what else is there to say, I thought maybe we could all get together and connect every so often on this website to keep in touch with one another. I am the only one who seems to still post on this website and will continue to do so to keep this website alive. I will also say it is a pleasure to "know" all the people who have posted here, Barbara, Dennis, etc. and it was wonderful to meet all of you at the Fan Club Luncheon for John Garfield at the Warwick Hotel almost six years ago.

To My Dear Mr. John Garfield, this is Lu. I am one of your biggest fans. I just wanted to say that watching you in your early movies and later movies, I say to myself what a shame, you certainly don't deserve how you've been treated. That even though you were a very talented actor and also a very caring person, you certainly don't deserve to be ignored. It just isn't fair. And I don't know why you have been treated the way you have been treated. Maybe it's because Warner Brothers got back at you for your not re-signing with them. I know that people who have posted here say there is nothing more to say, I will keep posting here so hopefully I can keep this website going. I will always think of you and watch your movies and pray for you. God Bless you!!!!! And keep you in His Care!!!!
Hopefully, even though you are up in Heaven, you are looking down and feel the love that I am sending you.

Thank you Dennis for that information. Fortunately, practically all his movies are on the Internet. Thanks again. Dennis. But I do look at the TCM grid every night to see if one of his movies is on.

I thought wouldn't it be wonderful if he were rediscovered and people would know what a TALENTED actor he was.

Well, Tuesday was Elvis Presley's 84th birthday and nobody on television even mentioned it. I don't think that they even mentioned Michael Jackson on his birthday or his anniversary.

By the way next month will be the anniversary of Whitney Houston's passing.

Barbara, I intend to email you some time to see if you can send me some pictures when we met at the John Garfield Fan luncheon. I can't believe it was such a long time ago.

When I watch his movies, I say to myself, what a talented actor he was going from Out Of The Fog to Saturdays
Children.

By the way, today is his daughter, Julie Garfield's birthday, Jan. 10.

Hi, Barbara, it's Lu. I agree it is nice to see you, Dennis and Karen post again. Yes, it was wonderful to see Dust Be My Destiny on TCM Wednesday. I was SO surprised to see it when I went on the TCM Channel to see if there were any of our Beloved Star's movies on since they don't seem to play any of his movies anymore especially the ones where he first started out. Also Four Daughters was on last Wednesday.

I know Dennis and you also stated what more can be said since everything through the years has been said. It is just that considering how our Beloved Star has been treated, it is a shame that this website would also cease to exist as well.

I was saddened to say that Dennis said that there is no interest in having John Garfield rediscovered. I thought surely Martin Scorsese and other bigwigs would do something they seemed to be interested.

When I was watching Four Daughters and Dust Be My Destiny, I was looking at him and thinking what a shame such a good looking man who had tremendous talent could end up the way the way he did.

Dust Be My Destiny is on TCM today at 1:30pm. It was the first JG movie I ever saw. I was hooked after I watched it, and I was on.y 9 years old.
