I just wanted to mention one more thing. Dr. Fox you asked a question why TCM doesn't show the movie Body And Soul, I think it is because they don't own that movie. I think American Movie Classics (AMC) owns it but they never show it either. That was the case several years ago with Gentlemen's Agreement that was also owned by AMC until I guess TCM bought it.

I also want to mention that in between his movies, they advertise TCM with all the movies both color and black and white and the major movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood but never any of John Garfield's movies or his face. However, I was surprised when they DID show The Postman Always Rings Twice and they showed him and Lana Turner.

I also noted that they are advertising the 50th Anniversary of some movies but of course none of our beloved star's. They also showed that The Ten Commandments will be aired on TCM celebrating one of its anniversaries including maybe showing it in an actual movie theatre. By the way it will be shown on Channel 7 on Easter Sunday from 7 to 11.

Hi, this is Lu again. I am posting a little at a time because I can't trust this computer, sometimes it acts "weird".

Yes, Dennis, I agree with you about the mistake TCM made with the movie Between Two Women, I thought did they mean Between Two Worlds and when it came up on the TV screen, it mentioned Lionel Barrymore and John Garfield which I thought did he make another movie which we didn't know about. And when they showed the credits, John Garfield's name was nowhere to be found. I watched the movie for a little while to see if he was in it but no, he wasn't. I can't believe that TCM would make that kind of mistake.

It is nice to see Barbara, Dennis, Dr. Fox posting again in honor of John Garfield's Birthday.

Thank you Dr. Fox for saying what you did about people not posting too much anymore. I do KNOW however, that people are indeed busy. I am so glad, Dennis that your wife is making good progress in her recovery.

Now, I want to wish our Beloved Star, John Garfield a happy 103rd Birthday in Heaven. I was noting that in They Made Me A Criminal, when Claude Rains was putting his wristwatch back on, he said "what is this my birthday" which I laughed and happily responded, yes it is.

Hi, this is Lu. It is so nice to be back on this website. On February 1st, our monitor "died" so we have been without a computer since yesterday, our Beloved Star's 103rd Birthday. While I was watching his movies celebrating his birthday, a nice gentleman was busy fixing our computer. Even though it was our Beloved Star's birthday, this was a nice birthday present for us.

Hi all...been a long time since I posted...just know I check this site often. Been busy with my wife who is doing great and still improving. Yes today is John Garfield's birthday...I never forget him or his movies. TCM blew is today and aired Between Two Women instead of Between two Worlds. Both were made in 1944...the first one was a Dr Kildare movie with Lionel Barrymore. It even shows the upcoming schedule between movies and had Garfield's name next to Barrymore's!! What a shame couldnt even get the movie correct. I will write back soon...bye for now!!

Hi Everyone!

I periodically check the site, and i am glad I did today. Thanks for the heads up on March 4. The other day TCM showed 4 Daughters, honoring Garfield's Oscar nod.

TCM used to show Body and Soul. I know, because I taped it. I think the last time they showed it was February of 2003 when they honored JG all month. Julie was on then. She screened the documentary on Garfield's life, which was wonderful and which I am so glad I made a copy of. Maybe it has something to do with copyright laws, I really don't know!

All,

I agree with Lu that it's a shame we don't see more postings on this website.

I only post infrequently, but check the site regularly.

I haven't seen any mentions of the fact that this coming Friday, March 4th (John Garfield's birthday...he would have been 103), TCM will be showing several Garfield films, including "They Made Me A Criminal" which co-stars Claude Rains, the Dead End Kids, and the lovely Gloria Dickson, as well as a number of those great Warner Brothers contract players, including May Robson and Ann Sheridan.

For this devoted Garfield community, can someone tell me why TCM has never broadcast "Body And Soul"?

How sad, the only people who seem to be posting on this website these days are these spell casters. Where is the webmistress who is supposed to be taking care of this website!!!!!That message was dated January 22 and it is now the 28th.

Hi, this is Lu. I know everybody is busy and Dennis is busy taking care of his wife, I hope she is getting better every day. But when I go on this website, I don't see any new messages, how sad. Again I know what Barbara said that how much can you say but still I think it is sad that this website seems to have run its course.

By the way, I want to wish our Beloved star's daughter, Julie Garfield a Happy Birthday. I want to thank her again for being so nice to me when we met at the luncheon for her father. I can't believe, was it 3 years ago. She is very gracious. It would be so nice to meet again, maybe some day. But it is sad that we wouldn't have the honor of her presence again.

Hi everybody, this is Lu. Just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everybody that visits this website a very Merry Christmas.

And to our BELOVED star, Merry Christmas in Heaven. Also Merry Christmas to his WONDERFUL daughter, Miss Julie Garfield.

Just thought I would mention something (trivia) if you want to call it that I noticed. Maybe you are aware of it, maybe not. I was watching the Sound Of Music on Sunday, they play it every Christmas) and I noticed in the credits in big letters that it was a Robert Wise Production and he also directed it. When I was watching one of our BELOVED star, John Garfield's movies, I think it was Tortilla Flat, I could be wrong, I noticed there was a gentleman also named Robert Wise that his name was in the production side of it. Probably how he got his start. And now he produced The Sound Of Music.

Also Eleanor Parker who co-starred with John Garfield in Pride Of The Marines got a BIG starring credit as well. That was twenty years later. She looked very different as the Baroness with blonde hair and smoking a cigarette that was in a glamorous cigarette holder. While in Pride Of The Marines, she had dark hair and you never saw her with a cigarette in her hand. While I was watching the movie, I remembered her after she got engaged to Al Schmidt coming down the stairs and looking out the window at the thunder and lightning. I realize also that she recently passed away.

I also want to wish everyone who visits this website, a Happy Thanksgiving too

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.
