Well!
We’re having a warm spell here this weekend…in the high 80s.

Garth Johnson 5:06 PM
About how I feel today

Laura Leibowitz 5:06 PM
Name the show that image is from…

R.Hookie 5:07 PM
We’ve been warm here too
Too easy

M. Mitchell Marmel 5:07 PM
Concentration?

Garth Johnson 5:07 PM
I’ll pass that on to Joan to answer

Laura Leibowitz 5:07 PM
OK, I wondered.

Tom Vorce 5:07 PM
Yep, me today. It’s pushin' 90 degrees today.

Laura Leibowitz 5:07 PM
Garth - Again, well played.
Dang…'tis all across the country apparently.
OK, let me post a quick “chat time” on the facebook page and we’ll get started with the show…

Garth Johnson 5:08 PM
The source of today images 

R.Hookie 5:08 PM
OIC

Laura Leibowitz 5:09 PM
Aha…I wondered if that was the source. I remember when that page first went up. It’s well done.

Steve Archer 5:09 PM

Catching up on the show now

Laura Leibowitz 6:09 PM
Hey hey…welcome, Mike!

M. Mitchell Marmel 6:09 PM
And we’re back!

Matt Votisek 6:09 PM
Wow. That was way better than the movie!

Tom Vorce 6:09 PM
That was very well done. 

R.Hookie 6:09 PM
Hi again folks~!

Laura Leibowitz 6:09 PM
Sure was!

Kathy Fuller Seeley 6:09 PM
what a great TV show! thanks for sharing, and yes it was better than the movie
!

M. Mitchell Marmel 6:09 PM
Had a hectic day today playing Billy Bones and doing Foley for our audio theater production of “Treasure Island”:.

Laura Leibowitz 6:09 PM
I think also having done it on Ford Theatre, that improved it and then it improved again under Wedlock and Snyder for Omnibus.
Mitch - How fun!
So what specifically made it better than the movie?
For me, the less physical comedy for Jack, the better.

M. Mitchell Marmel 6:10 PM
Yeah, but tiring. Think I’m gonna call it an evening. 

Kathy Fuller Seeley 6:10 PM
a great idea, that sometimes a story improves from multiple editing and cutting-down choices, it was meant to be a 55 minute story

Laura Leibowitz 6:10 PM
Seeing him swimming in a coffee cup is not his cup of tea

Matt Votisek 6:10 PM
I just think the story was tighter.

Steve Archer 6:10 PM
Faster pace, Audience.

M. Mitchell Marmel 6:11 PM
See y’all next time! 

Laura Leibowitz 6:11 PM
Audience absolutely.

Steve Archer 6:11 PM
It played more like a Benny show skit than the movie.

R.Hookie 6:11 PM
You didn’t like Jack getting dunked in coffee?

Matt Votisek 6:11 PM
Thx everybody!

Kathy Fuller Seeley 6:11 PM
the only thing missing from the film version is the WWII refugees

Laura Leibowitz 6:11 PM
I just tend to cringe most times Jack gets a laugh with some physical bit of business.

M. Mitchell Marmel 6:12 PM
Nite!

Laura Leibowitz 6:12 PM
Also better not having the girl trying to commit suicide.
Night, Mitch!

Kathy Fuller Seeley 6:12 PM
good night all from Rexall, and Laura I will talk to you soon! OH YEAH about the suicide girl!

Laura Leibowitz 6:13 PM
Kathy - Sounds good. Glad you could join us! 

Steve Archer 6:13 PM
Yeah, it’s a little lighter without trying to inject “dramatic moments” that sink a lot of feature-length comedies.

Laura Leibowitz 6:13 PM
BTW…I’m still open to chatting about the show if anyone has anything they’d like to say.
And any requests for next month?
Archer - Excellent point.

Steve Archer 6:14 PM
No special requests here, I’ll just try to make the chat!

Laura Leibowitz 6:14 PM
That would be great. You have been missed.
We’ll do failed Jell-O flavors if you are able to make it… 

R.Hookie 6:15 PM
How about another “hour-show” since a special is coffee ….

Laura Leibowitz 6:15 PM
OK…I’ll see what I’ve got in that length

Steve Archer 6:15 PM
Haha. Just have goofy work schedule and weird things interfering. Will try to improve attendance.

Laura Leibowitz 6:15 PM
Or we can screen “Medicine Man” and boo-hiss at it…

James Semmelroth Darnell 6:15 PM
One of the ‘specials' would be fun

R.Hookie 6:16 PM
That might be fun

Laura Leibowitz 6:16 PM
Could do that…

R.Hookie 6:16 PM
Or Meanest Man?

Laura Leibowitz 6:16 PM
Jack Benny’s New Look is a perpetual fave of mine…

Steve Archer 6:16 PM
All options sound good to me. Night all!

R.Hookie 6:16 PM
Good night Steve

Laura Leibowitz 6:16 PM
OK, sounds good. Thanks for stopping, and see you next month!
Good night John Boy

R.Hookie 6:17 PM
Good night folks!

Tom Vorce 6:17 PM
Those all sound good to me. Goodnight folks!

James Semmelroth Darnell 6:18 PM
Goodnight Joanie!
