Seems Like Old Times
Well, just 40 years ago today - August 20, 1968 - the Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia to do what it could to squelch democracy. Wow, seems like old times huh, with the recent activities in Georgia. Oddly enough, Stalin was from Georgia, but I am not sure he was a fan of the Braves, since they were in Milwaukee at the time (or was it Boston... hmmm). In any event, check out this old newreel of the 1968 invasion, and cheer for the people's response - which was to tell them to get the heck outta Prague. Time for a Pilsner Urquell.
We hope to update the database shortly to include one of our favorite movies - Night of the Hunter starring Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters. Till then, you can watch it on the blog below. Like his role in Cape Fear, Robert Mitchum can be really really creepy. Don't you think? Check it out.
