Of course you know Harold was born in Nebraska......

As were Henry Fonda, Marlon Brando, Johnny Carson, Robert Taylor, Gerald Ford and many other famous people :-)

uh oh, forgot Larry the Cable Guy....

My parents were born in Nebraska, but they never bragged about it. They were just glad they escaped to Oregon at the end of 1933, just ahead of the Dust Bowl.


He bought this T new in the winter of 1923, and this was their wedding day in April, 1924.

Has anyone gone and watched the film? It's HILARIOUS. Sound or not, funny is funny, back then and now. A majority of the movie is the main character interacting with his new 1920 Model T roadster. "Only 2 more payments and she's mine!"

Some of the funnier parts are classic T humor. He gets a free start, crawls completely inside the engine compartment working on the car, or when the little kid is jumping on the running board making the car shake - so he tries to drive it thinking that the engine is running. Numerous times he's driving along and then gets out of the car and does something - grabs a bag, moves a sign - all while the car is still rolling and then he runs and gets back in the car. It's hysterical. Definitely go watch it.

Ralph,

Are you sure you don't want to "return to your roots?"


And, I almost forgot, Fred Astaire was born in Omaha. In fact, his (thread hijack alert) father worked for the Storz Brewery in Omaha, owned by brewmaster Gotlieb Storz. Gotlieb's sons, Arthur and Adolph, had a Model K roadster (see, bringing this back to Ford related :-)).

We now return to your regularly scheduled thread.......

Jay, Seth and all,

HCCA has an education link on their website, and when you "drill down" there is a video section. I wonder if it would be possible for us to "archive" links like this on the MTFCA site?

Rob

I've seen the movie years ago. I love the part when the little kid is jumping up and down on the running board! Harold Lloyd is fantastic! (His films were so successful, he had a huge mansion known as the house built for a nickel, the admission charge for many movie houses.)
I think silent movies are better that "soundies" because without the sound to keep you informed of what is happening, you focus more onto the movie with both your eyes and your mind. You become more personally involved. It is more like you become part of the story. Whether comedy, or action/drama, several of my all-time favorite movies are silents.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I think perhaps history needs to be rewritten...The dust bowl was created when Ralph's Parents raced from Nebraska their spinning tires and fast exit stirred up enough dust to bury the mid west

Rob,
Storz Brewery in Omaha was the highlight of my 5 years of grad school and hospital residency in Omaha. Free tasting and free food if you took the tour! Took it as often as possible!

Bob
