I believe we do, buddy.

Sorry for your loss.

Pepper

We definitely do. And we can leave our traces behind.

Wow - I hadn't heard of "A Girl and a Gun," but I opened the link and started reading the archive from the beginning. I'm absorbed and hooked ... and taking "Master and Commander" off my Netflix queue ... I'm sorry for the loss and happy to be introduced to his work.

Shakespeare's Sister

I'm so sorry.

Pepper,

I'm going to honor George's memory by disagreeing with him about Master and Commander. Put it back in your NetFlix queue. I'm not sure if you have to be a fan of high sea adventure films to enjoy it, but that helps. It also helps if you wished you could go to sea and grow up to be Lucky Jack Aubrey. I think it hurts if you're a fan of Patrick O'Brian's novels. I wish George was here so we could duke it out over this.

It's great that you've been plunging into his archives. I hope his family keeps his page up for a long time because it's a valuable resource for movie buffs and scholars. How many of us have archives that are worth visiting again and again. His are and will always be.

Lance & Pepper - you are so right about his archives. How many blogs can you just start with the first post and keep reading? George was the perfect person to discuss a movie with. We all say we love different views, and often don't mean it. But you could feel how much he enjoyed a good argument over an important film. He would just wade in with such gusto. I had wanted to write to him about The Quiet Man, a film he despised, and try to defend it a bit. I am so sad that now I will never have the chance.
