That’s what advocates of all the failed socialistic personality/ideology cults say instead of acknowledging the reality that  they are inherently dehumanizing, exploitive and repressive and ultimately they fail.  I put Rajneeshism  in the same category as Scientology, Moonism, The Peoples Temple and Post Modernism.

I watched Wild Wild Country as soon as it was released. Extremely good and finished it in two days.

Still in my ‘Peaky Blinders was so amazing, can’t wair for Season 5’ slump.

Gave ‘Safe’ on Netflix (Michael C. Hall) a go when it aired on the 10th. Eh... The ‘Who done it?’ thing
has been done so often that this was tiresome and rather silly. After Episode 3, I had enough.  Love Michael C. Hall and have followed his work over many years including work on the stage. He was really the only interest as well as is extraordinary and Amanda Abbington ( from Sherlock). Maybe, I’m just not in the mood for it at this time.

I was flipping channels when I came across an episode of Gun Smoke.  I only caught a middle segment where some weasel of a cowboy had a beef with Matt Dillon only the marshal was out of town.  So the hot head galoot thought it would be a good idea to shoot all the windows out of the marshal's office/jail.  Well, Matt came into town the next morning and he wasn't pleased to find all the windows shot out.  He tracked the slimy cowhand down (coming out of a saloon) and confronted him.  "I hear you've been looking for me," Matt said to the surprised cowboy.  "Well, you've found me."  Now, I'd like to pause here for a second because I thought all right, Matt is going to throw the no good rattlesnake into jail and make him pay for all the damage.  But no.  The marshal proceeded to pound the living shit out of the guy, damn near killing him on the spot.  I found that portion of the show very satisfying and I didn't even bother to watch the entire episode.

Flight to Nowhere is a 1946 movie directed by William Rowland.  Wiki calls it a film Noir crime film but I disagree.  It's more like an early day James Bond film, minus any fancy gadgets.  The principle character, Hobe Carrington, is a secret agent of sorts (though he doesn't quite know it) who likes to wear fancy clothes and who has a way with women. 

The movie starts off with an atomic bomb explosion, followed by some quick cloak and dagger scenes resulting in the stabbing of a secret agent who was carrying an important document.  No, the paper isn't a formula for an atom bomb, more important than that.  It is a top secret geologic map showing all the major deposits of good old uranium.  Such stuff as A bombs are made on. 


Hobe is introduced in the movie standing by his plane.  He's a charter plane pilot and he is talking to a mechanic when a mysterious lady enters stage right.


"Wow, catch those mysterious legs, Hobey Boy!"

The woman is Countess Maria de Frescas and she hires Hobe to fly her and her entourage to Death Valley. 


Hobe, "Nice hat, lady."

The Countess and her gang are flown to Death Valley.


Hobe (second from left) looks over the usual gang of suspects.

They get off the plane and take a charter car to the Furnace Creek Inn in Death Valley.  You see, one of the really cool things about this movie is that the producers didn't have the bucks to build sets and rent out movie lots, so they had to utilize real buildings like the Furnace Creek Inn to save dollars.  It makes the movie more fun to watch, in my opinion. 


The real Furnace Creek Inn.


As it turns out, Countess and crew are a gang of racketeers and they have the valuable map in their possession.  They are looking for somebody to pay big bucks for it.  Hobe's secret agent boss fills him in on the plot and so he (Hobe) pick pockets the map back and all is well.  Until he's walking down a dark hallway and somebody knocks him out and he looses the map.


"Ouch!"

Hobe Carrington revives himself, and after kissing the Countess, he falls for a good looking blonde suspect.  A playboy type suspect makes an unwanted move on her so Hobe knocks him into the Furnace Creek pool.


Hobe, "Take that, Pretty Boy."

More cloak and dagger stuff ensues until for some reason or other, the Countess has Carrington fly the whole gang over to Las Vegas.  They pile into a car and make their way to the real Last Frontier hotel in Vegas.


The real Last Frontier.

More cloak and dagger scenes take place and Hobe manages to get the map back.  But he's walking down a dark path and, believe it or not, somebody knocks him out and he looses the map.


"Again, I say Ouch."

Hobe revives himself in time to see the playboy suspect hitting on the blonde suspect again, so he knocks the guy into the Last Frontier pool. 


"I don't like to repeat myself, but take that again, Pretty Boy."

Oh yeah, before I forget, lots of cool Auto Art in this movie.



More cloak and dagger stuff occurs and (spoiler alert - stop reading here if you don't want to know how the movie ends) Hobe Carrington gets the map back, without being knocked out for a third time.  He also gets to marry the blonde suspect.


Director, "Makeup!  Get a can of black paint.  We've got to fill in that bald spot!"

Oh and by the way, you can watch this movie for free on YouTube.
