It could be, depending on what the message said ... or someone could have sent you a private message. In that case, it would be in your Runboard Inbox. Just click on the "Inbox" link above.

Re: Treasure Island


Thanks, Sue! Happy Memorial Day to you too. And you know what that means? Robert Newton Day isn't far behind! (Boy, I really need to update the site!!!)

PS: You don't suppose ... ? No, that couldn't be. I was almost going to suggest maybe they scheduled it in honor of his birthday!

Re: Treasure Island


Hi, Susan. Hope you had a good Memorial Day weekend! I hate to disappoint you, but TCM is celebrating Robert Louis Stevenson on May 30 by showing five movies: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island, The Body Snatcher, The Wrong Box, and The Secret of St. Ives. At least they're honoring a 'Robert' (but not our Robert)! They probably would have played TI on June 1 if they had decided to honor RN. Oh well, I keep hoping they will mention him in some way other than just appearing in the movie! I must say, though, that they always put a photo of him from TI in their 'Now Playing' monthly guide. They did it the month that they were honoring Walt Disney and they did it this month too.

Re: Treasure Island


Oh it makes me so angry...when will Bobbie finally be recognized for his work...not only in
Treasure Island (for which modern movie pirates everywhere owe a huge debt of gratitude!), but as the brilliant and versatile character actor that he was?
Anyway, I haven't posted anything on this site in such a long time...good to be back!
I'm off to London on June 6th for a week holiday. I had wanted to be in England by the 5th (for obvious reasons), but I just couldn't swing it. Nevertheless, I shall try to catch a train out to Cornwall or at the very least stop into a pub and raise a belated birthday glass to our Bobbie! I have a few of episdoes of
The Adventures of Long John Silver in my iPod, so I can watch him on the plane!

Re: Treasure Island


Wow, Jenny, have a wonderful trip. I wish I was going to England! Have you been there before?
Well, be sure to let us know how the trip went and if you went to Cornwall (and a pub).

Happy trip emoticon
