Hi, it's me Lu again. Just wanted to let you know that Hollywood Canteen is on TCM tonight at 8PM. It is so nice to see our Beloved Star appearing as himself. He was a very nice and caring person. Too bad he is no longer with us. Rest In Peace.

I wonder what he would think of todays technology. At the luncheon in his honor at the Warwick hotel, his daughter had an IPhone or a Smart Phone or Android. It would be nice if every so often she would post on this website. We would love to hear from her.

Hi, Barbara, good to see you posting again. By the way, The Sea Wolf was on again this morning at 4:15. I couldn't believe they played it again. Last time I watched the whole movie, this time just a "smidgen".

Hi, this is Lu again. Hope everybody is doing OK.

Yesterday, when I was watching TV, there was a breaking news story that happened on 32nd Street on 6th Avenue. I won't mention what happened but if you were watching TV you probably heard about it.

What I am getting at is when I saw the Manhattan Mall, I kind of gasped because when I went to New York, I used to go in there.

And I felt close to our beloved star, John Garfield because it the movie, I think it was Castle On The Hudson, in the beginning when he was in the car with Ann Sheridan, he mentioned 8th Avenue and 34th Street and I used to walk down there to get to the stores I wanted to stop at and that area wasn't too far away from what happened yesterday. Just thought I'd mention that.

Hi, this is Lu. Again posting on this website from our local public library since we are still in the process of getting a new tower for our computer.

Every time I come on this website I keep hoping to see someone's posting but nothing. I know, as I said before people are busy but it is still sad.

It would be nice also if Ms. Garfield would post something every once in a while.

Hi, everyone, this is Lu again. I know Barbara said that everything has been said that can be said but Dr. John Fox agrees with me that it is sad that nobody posts on this message board anymore. As I mentioned before, I know everyone is busy but it is still so sad.

Hope everybody is having a good summer although it is VERY HOT. We are just trying to deal with the heat. I have said this before many times. Every time I go on TCM to watch a John Garfield movie, this time it was Tortilla Flat, they mention buy old movies that are in the TCM Archives but not one of them is of our beloved star, WHAT A SHAME!!!!

Dennis, I hope your wife is feeling better. Again we are at our local library. Our computer tower died, it was a refurbished tower that the gentleman that services our computer sold to us, I guess it is time to buy a new one.

All,

Thank Your Lucky Stars is on TCM this Saturday morning. Some dismiss it as war time fluff, but I think it's great fun, and that Garfield's "singing" performance is hilarious.

Lots of the Warner Brothers actors and actresses make appearances including Alexis Smith, Jack Carson, Alan Hale, Ida Lupino, Olivia DeHaviland, Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, George Tobias, Dennis Morgan, and Joan Leslie. Eddie Cantor and a very young Dinah Shore also appear.

Hi, this is Lu. I am still at the local public library. We've been having problems with getting our AOL back so we've opted to subscribe to Verizon DSL. I know that I have stated this many times and might sound like a "broken" record but I was watching Juarez and I couldn't help but notice that between movies, they advertise TCM with all the other stars and their movies but not once do they show one of our beloved stars movies or even show his face.

And I don't know how much TV everyone watches but there is or will be a Broadway show titled Cagney. Wouldn't it be nice if somebody did that for our beloved star.

All,

"Juarez" is on TCM tomorrow, July 10th. For Garfield, as you know, the role of Porfirio Diaz was most unusual: the only time he ever played a "period" role.

Hi, this is Lu Again sending this from our local library. I just wanted to wish our beloved star, John Garfield a belated Happy Father's Day in Heaven.

Our computer is still "out" It seems maybe because I still have dial-up there is something wrong with the modem. And also we might have a virus on our computer. Even though we do have a virus protector on it

Also my husband has a sore ankle and has trouble walking on his right foot It has been crazy Hopefully, he will feel better soon Because he is confined to the top floor in our house, I have to bring all his meals up to him. And who knows when our computer will be fixed

Sorry, life has gotten in the way lately! However, I think of you all often! The lunch at the Warwick is something I look back on fondly! I just want to wish everyone a healthy and happy summer!

Dr. Fox I just accessed the Garfield article and I am going to read it now! Thank you so much!

Hi all, this is Lu. Posting from our local library Hopefully in the near future, we will have our AOL Internet reinstalled

I was watching my Nobody Lives Forever DVD and I just wanted to mention, does anybody see the resemblance to the living room that John Garfield stayed in at the hotel To me it resembles the living room in the apartment that he lived in in Humoresque, they look similar and they both had terraces

Dennis,

I do remember your post vividly.

I am not sure if we are talking about the same thing.

The link I posted a couple of days ago I discovered quite by accident. I was actually doing some research on Robert Aldrich who was an assistant director for Body And Soul. The article I came across was published on the World Socialist web site. Aldrich was one of the early members of Enterprise Productions.

I remember Gary Susman's article well, and posted my thanks and appreciation to both Gary and you (for reaching out to Gary) on the Garfield web site in March 2013.

The article I reference was written by Joanne Laurier.

Hi, Dennis, this is Lu. I am at our local library using their computer. I just wanted to thank you for that. Whenever I watch TCM and see how he is ignored and when I go out to places that would have a book on him, I get very mad. Hopefully that will do something. Thanks, again.

Dr John Fox...I guess you didnt see my post when this happened in 2013. I contacted a Gary Susman via email...he works for Moviefone. I ttold hum about John Garfield and this site...and it would be nice to have an article on the internet commemerating Garfields 100th birthday and he did just that. Great article. I was so excited he did that. John Garfield got some needed press. And I was proud to do it!!

Hi, Dr. John Fox and everyone this is Lu. Thank you for that information. As soon as I restore our AOL Internet Service to our computer, I will check it out. Right now I am using the computers at our local library

All,

Quite by accident, I stumbled across a very thoughtful and interesting article yesterday. It was published in March 2013 to commemorate what would have been John Garfield's 100th birthday.

The URL is below. I hope you all find it as interesting as I did.
