Hi, again, this is Lu. I just wanted to say it is very sad that nobody else posts on this website anymore but me.

Since Dennis doesn't post anymore, I guess we'll never know how successful he has been in getting our Beloved Star, John Garfield rediscovered.

Even TCM on both their TV channel and on their On Demand Channel, our Beloved Star seems to have been forgotten.

How Sad!!!!!

Hi, everyone, it's Lu again. I know I am the only one who posts on this website any more. Maybe people go on this website but don't post, I don't know.

All I wanted to say is I look at the TCM grid every night to see if our Beloved Star's movies are being shown, but not lately. I also observe that the TCM On Demand showed 3 of his movies but not lately.

I was hoping that maybe he would be rediscovered courtesy of Dennis' hard work but because Dennis doesn't post here anymore, I don't know.

TCM On Demand plays a lot of old movies but they don't seem to bother playing our Beloved Star's movies. How sad. I hate to say this but the way things are going, I don't think that will ever change. Believe me, I hope I am wrong but that seems to be the way things are going. They play a LOT of old movies, sometimes they play them more than once, even TCM plays the same movie more than once. But our Beloved Star seems to be ignored.

How sad because he was a very talented actor and certainly underrated.

Hi, this is Lu. I guess I'm the only one who posts on this website anymore. That's OK. I love posting things here since it is devoted to our Beloved Star. I know that Barbara has stated that there is no more to say but I will keep posting as long as I have something to say.

I was watching Destination Tokyo, He Ran All The Way and now The Postman Always Rings Twice. It seems that TCM has been showing more of our Beloved Star's movies lately. Please keep them coming. I now make sure to also look at On Demand as well.

I wanted to say also, that Warner Brothers in my opinion ruined his reputation by type casting him as a gangster in their movies all because Humphrey Bogart and James Cagney were nearing the end of their contracts and they wanted somebody to take their places.

I wonder what would have happened if another studio would have hired him to do other more meaningful roles. He was a very talented actor and definitely underrated. Maybe if he worked full time for MGM, we would have seen some of his movies in color. I know about how people who have posted here feel about that. But it would have been nice to see him in color.

Even On Demand, I see a lot of movies listed but not many of his movies are shown. I hope that changes.

To our WONDERFUL BELOVED STAR, John Garfield, Happy Fathers' Day In Heaven. It was so nice to see your daughter, Julie on TCM being interviewed in honor of Fathers' Day talking about the movie He Ran All The Way which was on at 10AM this morning.

Hi, this is Lu. I was watching Hollywood Canteen this past Saturday morning and I was thinking to myself what a WONDERFUL actor our Beloved Star was, watching him explain how the Hollywood Canteen got started,telling how all the unions got involved working to create a wonderful atmosphere so that soldiers would have a place to go to be entertained by the Hollywood movie stars. It was very interesting. I think I posted this once before. He played tough guys courtesy of Warner Brothers insisting those kind of roles they wanted him to play but how WONDERFUL he was in real life. WHAT A WONDERFUL PERSON HE WAS IN REAL LIFE. GOD Bless him!!!!
It was very interesting to see by watching Feud with Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon playing Joan Crawford and Bette Davis to see how the movie industry made movies back then. All the manipulating that went on, just to make money. And they had an actor playing Jack Warner, the head of Warner Brothers, thinking that was our Beloved Star's boss. And of course, all the other actors playing actors from that era, very interesting!!!

I just wanted to wish our Beloved Star, John Garfield, a Happy Passover in Heaven. We Love You Very Much.

I also wanted to wish all the people who visit this website Happy Easter and Happy Passover.

Since I don't see Dennis posting anymore, I was just wondering since he had talked about it earlier and he seemed to be the one who knew how to contact people, if anything had been done on getting our Beloved Star, John Garfield finally recognized. I know he is busy with his shows and also taking care of his wife. And Karen since she is the one who has a wonderful album devoted to our Beloved Star. I was really impressed when I saw it when we met at the Warwick Hotel.

Since nobody else has posted here in a long time, I guess I am the only one, Oh, Well. I will continue to do so.

Hi, this is Lu. I just wanted to mention that I looked ahead on our Beloved Star's Birthday, March 4 and I was surprised but then not very surprised that TCM is not honoring him by playing any of his movies. Instead I think they are still doing the 30 days of Oscar. I thought that was over the day after the Oscars were on which is next Monday.

Hi, Barbara, this is Lu. Because of the very bad snowstorm we are now getting, I hope you are OK. It seems that where you live that you are getting a blizzard and it will be in effect until 6PM tonight. Take care, Love LU

While I am writing this, I hope Dennis is OK and also Karen who had that beautiful scrapbook on our Beloved Star.

Hi, this is Lu again. Just wanted to let you know that Destination:Tokyo is on TCM at 12:30 this afternoon. It seems that TCM is playing John Garfield movies a lot more than they used to. I make it a point to check the TV grid to see if any of his movies will be on.

I haven't seen Dennis posting anymore, I hope his wife is OK. He was the one who seemed to be trying to get in touch with some very important people to get our Beloved Star rediscovered.

Hi, this is Lu again. How sad, nobody posts on this website anymore, I guess I'm the only one but there are two posts again that are not relative to this website, one that was just posted and the other some time ago. Where is the webmistress, doesn't she check this website either.

Hi to everyone, this is Lu. Just wanted to let you know that our Beloved Star, John Garfield, is on TCM this afternoon at 12:00 PM in the Postman Always Rings Twice. I was quite surprised when I saw it on the TV Grid being that they don't show too many of his movies and I think that this was just on a little while ago. Enjoy!!!
