As I mentioned it took a lot of therapy and time but my husband is showing improvement, it takes time as I mentioned. It is wonderful to be back. As I have stated we STILL have dial-up, probably the only people on the planet. Our computer was working VERY slow, getting a lot of errors and loading failed messages but discovered it was because we had a lot of static on our telephone which was fixed and it seems to be working much better.

Hi all, this is Lu. Hi, Dennis, I just read that Barbara wished you a Happy Birthday. Well, then, I want to wish you a Happy Birthday as well. Happy Birthday. I am glad your wife is coming along with the help of her therapy. That's great. I know, it takes time. My husband suffered a slight stroke 5 years ago in March and he is showing a lot of improvement. It takes time. By the way, my birthday is this Saturday, the 14th, Again Happy Birthday. And hello to everyone else. It is good to see you, Barbara and Dennis posting again.

More sad news. Maureen O'Hara just died. You all know, of course, that she co-starred with Garfield in "The Fallen Sparrow". This film is generally considered to be one of Garfield's best. His performance was very well received, and the picture was a big money maker for RKO.

In Robert Nott's great biography of Garfield, "He Ran All The Way", there's a photo of Garfield with the cast and crew of "The Fallen Sparrow" celebrating his 30th birthday.

Maureen O'Hara, of course, is better remembered for other films such as "Miracle On 34th Street" and "The Parent Trap".

By all accounts, just like the late Joan Leslie, she was a lovely person in real life. She had nice things to say about Garfield in her autobiography, as she did about John Wayne, Brian Keith, and John Payne.

I hope at least some of you saw her interview with Robert Osborne. Perhaps TCM will broadcast it as part of some sort of tribute to her and if we are lucky, maybe TCM will include "The Fallen Sparrow" as part of it.

Hi all..we post when we can. I would love to get to NYC again...but my wife needs alot of therapy. She continues to improve slowly. Just watched Castle on the Hudson...Garfield was so good and such a smart-alec in that film. Hope everone is doing to you all soon.

I meant to say it is nice to see Dr. John Fox posting AGAIN.

I was wondering maybe Barbara, Dennis and Karen email each other instead of this website. I realize also that Dennis is taking care of his wife while she convalesces, I hope she is doing better.

Still in all, it is sad. Is it my imagination that TCM doesn't seem to play too many John Garfield movies anymore. It seems every time I go on the TCM channel, none of his movies are there.

I hope everybody is doing OK. Can you believe this year is almost up.

Hi, Dr. John Fox, it is nice to see you posting although it is a shame that it took Joan Leslie to die.

Yes, I agree, it was so nice to see our beloved star John Garfield in Hollywood Canteen playing himself, I agree it was nice to see how he actually was in real life not "reel" life.

It is sad though that people seem to have lost interest in this website (nobody posts anymore). I know Barbara said how much more is there to say about our beloved star. Still it is sad. I am in the process of joining Facebook but at the moment I am dealing with other things.

Some sad news to report in case you hadn't heard. Joan Leslie just died. She was 90, and appeared in two films with John Garfield, "Thank Your Lucky Stars" (1943) and "Hollywood Canteen" (1944).The latter, as I have mentioned, is one of my favorites because Garfield plays himself and one gets a sense of what he must have really been like in person.

Joan Leslie also played herself in "Hollywood Canteen" and was only 19 years old at the time. By all accounts, she was a truly lovely person in real life. Like Garfield and so many others, she worked very hard at The Canteen during World War II.

Wow, what a delightful surprise. Another John Garfield fan whose favorite movie is The Breaking Point.

God Bless your father. Hi, my name is Lu. Welcome to this website. I wish I could help you, maybe Barbara or Dennis would know where to get a copy.

I can't believe somebody actually still has a VCR which I've heard they don't make anymore courtesy of the computer, just DVR's. I have a lot of VHS tapes but I cannot play them since the VCR in my living room broke some time ago and the one I have isn't digital and therefore, I cannot record anything, all I can hear is the audio, no video and the one in my bedroom I just discovered the power doesn't come on anymore.

Again welcome and good luck with the tape.

I am looking for a copy of "The Breaking Point" with John Garfield for my father. It can be a VHS cassette too. I just can't afford what they are asking on some of the sites. Please email me if you have a copy you would like to sell to a good cause, my dad is 78 and he said it was his favorite movie.
My email address for contact is:
Thanks a million

Hi, Barbara and everyone, this is Lu. I want to thank you Barbara for advising us that Our Beloved Star was on the last day of August in He
Ran All The way. I watched it. I really felt bad for him especially at that time in his life for what he was going through. I couldn't watch the end of it because I didn't want to see him die in the end. What a very caring person and good actor he was. I hope that somebody will finally make a biopic of him as they call it and he will be rediscovered.

Hi Everyone, I know we are all busy, but I still check back on this website. I think of our meeting at the Warwick fondly! Hopefully, one day we can meet up again! I just saw He Ran All the Way will be on TCM on Shelly Winter day which I think is August 31. I am so glad you watched The Breaking Point, Lu! I think Garfield was great in it, so sexy!....Dennis, I am so glad Sue is doing well! Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Hi all...I havent posted in a while very busy with my wife and my shows. My wife is doing well still re-habing. Hopefully some day in our lifetime someone will make that movie about the great John Garfield. Hope all is well with everyone. I will write soon.

I was watching Breaking Point starring our beloved star. But it was sad that it was mentioned that this movie is rarely seen and they also mentioned that it didn't do well at the box office.

I know Barbara said that this website seems to have run out of steam, nobody posts too much here anymore. Which is sad and it is also sad that TCM doesn't seem to run too many of John Garfield's movies anymore.

As I mentioned before, when they advertise TCM, none of his movies seem to be included, that is also sad.

Does anybody know if any plans have been made to finally make a movie about him. Actually the actor whose last name is Wahlberg, I think his first name is Mark was on the View some time ago and he didn't mention anything about a movie about our beloved star and Whoopi Goldberg didn't ask.

Breaking Point on TCM August 16 at 2 pm. It's rarely shown! It's a great film!

Lu, I joined Facebook so long ago, I don't remember how I did it. I really don't think it's a big deal. You just fill in basic things. I think this website lost steam because how much more can we say. If you want to see the pictures from the hotel, I could email them, but I need your email address.
