After I just posted something before, I decided I wanted to say one more thing. I just wanted to say I feel SO bad and I wanted to say to you, Mr. John Garfield, even though you are not here any more, I want to apologize to you for the way you have been treated and that nobody saw fit, those so-called big-wig Hollywood producers to have you rediscovered. It is NOT fair!!!!!Your daughter, Julie Garfield, who is a very talented actress could have represented you.

Hi, this is Lu again. I would just like to wish our Beloved Star, John Garfield a Happy July 4th in Heaven.

I was watching The Postman Always Rings Twice on TCM this morning. And as I do when I watch his movies, I think to myself, he didn't and doesn't deserve what happened to him. He was a wonderful, talented and underrated actor who was a very caring person and he was very patriotic what with going overseas to entertain the troops and organizing the Hollywood Canteen with Bette Davis which she got most of the credit for when he actually came up with the idea. It is very sad what happened to him. Again, Happy 4th of July in Heaven and Rest In Peace!!!!!

Hi, this is Lu. I was just wondering, if our Beloved Star, John Garfield were still alive, what would he think of the world today. Between all the upsets in the world today. In a scene from Daughters Courageous, when he is in the kitchen talking to Claude Rains about the shape of the world at that time, what would he think about what is going on in the world today, the destruction of the Twin Towers. Also what would he think about the technology that we have today, computers, iphones, bottled water, I wonder, the way cars are built today, suv's, moon roofs. Heck I wonder what my mother would think. Well, even though he is not alive, I think his grandchildren, his son David's children, they are experiencing it. I wonder how old they are.

Hi, this is Lu. Even though it is a couple of days past Father's Day, I just wanted to wish our Beloved Star, John Garfield a Happy Father's Day in Heaven. Even though it is sad that you are unfortunately forgotten, there are still people out there that know you and love you (I see people on some websites that think that you are wonderful). Again, Happy Father's Day in Heaven!!!!!

Hi all, this is Lu. I just wanted to again thank Kristine Rose, Classic Movies for all of our Beloved Star, John Garfield's movies on the Internet. I so enjoy watching them since TCM doesn't as I stated before play them too much although they did show Air Force today and tomorrow, early morning Destination Tokyo will be on. As I stated many times before, every time I watch his movies, I say to myself, how badly he was and is being treated. SUCH A WONDERFUL TALENT!!!!!!

Hi, this is Lu. As I mentioned previously, I was watching Hollywood Canteen on the Internet and was wondering how our Beloved Star, John Garfield got involved with it since he and Bette Davis were responsible for it. And I asked Google how he got involved in it and it said that he was the first to suggest it since he wanted a place for the servicemen to go and enjoy themselves when they were on furlough. That goes to show what a WONDERFUL person he was because he cared so much for the servicemen. Bette Davis took the idea to Jules Stein who contributed the money. Bette Davis was the president and our Beloved Star, the vice president and as he explained that everybody, all different unions in the movie industry donated their time and talent and got involved. Again WHAT A WONDERFUL PERSON HE WAS. God Bless you, John Garfield, Rest In Peace!!!!

Hi, this is Lu again. I was watching Hollywood Canteen on the Internet and I watched the part where our Beloved Star, John Garfield was explaining how the Hollywood Canteen got started. All I can say is WHAT A WONDERFUL AND CARING PERSON HE WAS. It was so nice to see him being himself. That just goes to show what a wonderful actor he was playing those tough guy roles. I was watching that part of Hollywood Canteen over and over. To our Beloved Star, John Garfield, Rest In Peace!!!

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.

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.
