Being that nobody seems to post on this website and the fact that they don't seem to be playing any of his movies anymore, I have been feeling sad because of it. I can't understand why he is treated the way he has been treated. He was a very underrated actor. He was both good in dramatic roles as well as comedy. Every time I watch him in one of his films, I look at him and say why, how sad. Every other actor and actress both past and present have been featured on TCM On Demand, sometimes they repeat the same movie but our BELOVED STAR is completely ignored. That makes me mad.

Hi, Dennis, this is Lu. I was surprised and thrilled to see your posting. In fact I looked at the date to see if it indeed was current. Yes, it has been a long time but I am glad to see you posting again. It gives me hope that this website hasn't been completely abandoned. Dennis, I am glad you said what you just said. Have you had any success in getting our Beloved Star, John Garfield rediscovered. I was just going to mention that Destination Tokyo was on TCM this past Sunday I guess in honor of Veterans' Day and I was hoping that TCM would have it on their Video On Demand but no such luck.

Hi, this is Lu again. As Barbara mentioned Pride of the Marines was on TCM this past Saturday. And I just wanted to mention, if anyone missed it, I can't believe it but it is on the TCM Video On Demand Channel. If your cable provider carries Video On Demand and if TCM is featured on it, you should be able to watch it. Just wanted to let you know if anybody reads these postings.

Hi, Barbara, it is SO NICE to see you post on this website. I am sorry that you have had some trying times. I too haven't had a good year. Mainly my husband has had several medical issues that we are dealing with as well as some expensive home repairs as well.

Now that I know your email address, I hope you don't mind if I email you some time. I have just been so tired lately trying to get my house in order. Yes, I was SO surprised to see TCM played Pride Of The Marines and I just remembered, I completely forgot, Thank Your Lucky Stars was on at 12:00 today. He was on at the very beginning.

Hi Lu, I am very rarely on this site. I donít think anyone else realizes itís up again. This has been a bad year. I lost my dad a few months ago, and there has been some illness in my family. I just wanted to let you k ow Pride of the Marines is on TCM today. You are right, they hardly show any Garfield films. I am so glad I have copies of all his films. Be well.

Hi, this is Lu again. I just wanted to say that in addition to nobody posting on this website anymore, TCM doesn't seem to be playing any more of our Beloved Star, John Garfield's movies. I go on the TCM Grid every night to hopefully see one of his movies playing but nothing. Other movies I see being played over and over again, but not our Beloved Star's, It seems that he has been forgotten, HOW SAD!!!!!

Hi, this is Lu again. I hope even though nobody posts on this website anymore, I hope people do read the posts that are already there.

I still think it is very sad. I know everything has been said about our Beloved Star John Garfield but it still would be nice to see people posting.

Hi, all, yes this is Lu again. I just wanted to thank Kristen Rose for putting our Beloved Star, John Garfield's movies on the internet. If it weren't for her, we would never see his movies since TCM doesn't seem to play them too much anymore. HOW SAD!!!!!

Hi all, this is Lu again. Barbara, have you read my posts regarding how our Beloved Star is being treated by TCM and how children of celebrities are now following in the footsteps of their famous parents. It would be nice if you when you visit this website again, you could let us know how you feel. Some time in the future I will try to email you directly. I hope you will respond.

Hi, Barbara, it is SO nice to see you post again. I was having the same problem, I couldn't get on this website since last November, I kept getting a 500 Internal Error and because I am NOT technical with computers I didn't know what to do. I wanted also to get your email address to actually email you, I even looked on your facebook page to see maybe I could get your home address. When I did get on this website and click on your email address, since we have a new computer, I didn't know how to get your email address but when I happened to get this website back you did mention your email address. In fact I did email you but you didn't get back to me. I even mentioned in parenthesis where I met you so you knew it was me. Again, it is so nice to see you back.

Lu, for the longest time I couldnít post on here for some reason. I think others had the same problem. I just took a chance and came to the site. I hope all is well with you!

Hi, this is Lu again. Even though it seems that I am the only one who posts on this website, it would be nice to hear from Dennis who says that he is John Garfield's biggest fan and he watches one of his movies every night, would post if only to say if anything has been done to get our Beloved Star recognized since he seems to know people who would have connections to get this done. I don't have facebook so I don't know if he posts there to say what is being done if anything.

Hi, everyone, it's Lu again. Just wanted to say I have been watching The Postman Always Rings Twice over and over on TCM Video On Demand and have been enjoying it.

It's a shame they don't play more of his movies on TCM. I've noticed that they have played other movies of other stars over and over but never play too many of our Beloved Star's movies.
Again it is a shame.

By the way this is the 17th Anniversary of the September 11th Terror Attacks. Too bad they didn't rebuild the beautiful Twin Towers the way they were. God Bless America!!!

I also want to say I am SO glad that this website is back again so I can voice my concerns. I wish other people would do the same. Between not having this website anymore and seeing how TCM treats John Garfield, I was kind of upset.

When I watch his early movies, I was watching Castle On The Hudson on the internet thanks to I think her name is Kristen Rose, I think it is called Classic Movies, I was thinking to myself what a waste of talent. He could have done so much better in other more meaningful roles. Thank goodness I can at least watch them on the internet.

It would be nice to see other people posting here to give their opinion.

Hi all, this is Lu again. I just wanted to air one more grievance against TCM. I noticed that they are only playing these days when they play John Garfield movies, Humoresque, The Postman Always Rings Twice and He Ran All The Way. They don't seem to play his early "tough
guy" movies. Also they only seem to play The Postman Always Rings Twice and He Ran All The Way on the TCM Video On Demand channel, not even Humoresque and of course I see all the other old movies they play.

I think because he decided not to re-sign with Warner Brothers and developed his own production company, they got back at him and made the Hollywood community practically ignore him.

I remember his daughter saying that she wrote the Academy to have a Honorary Oscar presented to him at the Academy Awards which would have been given to his daughter but she never heard from them.

I just had to voice my opinion on this since I see a lot of children of so-called "superstar" couples either making movies or going into TV series.

Julie Garfield is a very talented actress and writer also teacher who has appeared on Broadway who should have been able to have a career in films, unfortunately, it did not pan out for her. I think because her father made mostly as they call them "B" movies that were mostly forgettable that I loved, courtesy of Warner Brothers to replace James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart, I think it was because of that which makes me very mad.

As I mentioned above many of the children of "superstar" couples are now following in the foot steps of their parents. Dakota Johnson and Brice Dallas Howard. Also the daughter of Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg, to name a few. Also Frank & Kathie Lee Gifford's daughter is trying to make it in movies.

Hi, all, this is Lu again. After watching TV and seeing all the promotions of movies that were made and are being made with children of so-called "superstar" couples, I just had to air my thoughts.
