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 couldn’t 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.

Thank you, Also A Fan, for that post. It is nice to know that somebody besides me posts on this website. And it is nice to know that even though nobody posts on this website that hopefully people do visit this website to read the posts that are already here.

Like I mentioned on a previous post that I was frustrated that for a while (last November) I couldn't get on this website at all because of a message that read 500 Internal Error. Between that and seeing that TCM was not playing John Garfield's movies at all anymore and not being able to discuss it with anybody, made me feel very frustrated.

Lu agree that JG was a great actor who may be forgotten. Your posts are looked at.

Hi, this is Lu again. Again I am saying that nobody posts on this website anymore, just me. It would be nice to see a post every so often. I feel bad that like our Beloved Star's star seems to be fading that it seems that this website is fading as well. I know Barbara said everything has been said that should be said but still it is sad. I am so GLAD that this website is back so that I can still post on it.

I can't believe that I am back on this website again. I didn't ever think I would be able to post again. I have been getting this 500 Internal Error message since last November when I posted for the last time. I am SO glad to be back. I don't know if Dennis or Barbara look at this website anymore but I am wondering if Dennis has had any luck in getting our Beloved Star recognized. TCM seems to play our Beloved Star, John Garfield's movies less and less.

Hi, this is Lu again. It doesn't matter to me that I am the only one that posts on this website anymore. If that is the case, so be it.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to wish our Beloved Star, John Garfield a Happy Thanksgiving in Heaven

We all LOVE you, Rest In Peace!!!!

This is to our Beloved Star, John Garfield. Even though you are no longer with us, I am sending this to you in Heaven through this website that is devoted to you. I have LONG been one of your greatest fans and I want to tell you that you were a wonderful and very caring person and by far one of the greatest and most talented and underrated actors. I just feel bad that because Warner Brothers didn't use your wonderful talent. And unfortunately you are not regarded in the same category as Cagney and Bogart and other stars at Warner Brothers and other studios. If you could have made other movies like Pride Of The Marines, I think you would be as popular today as people today remember the popular stars of yesterday and today. I know your birthday isn't until next March but I felt I had to write something today to honor your memory. REST IN PEACE!!!
