ROBERT MITCHUM SPEAKS FROM THE GRAVE

 
By Shannan
Gone are the days of the badass. The 180 happened at "Why do they hate us???".
By dustrider
The oldsters who've tried to turn Iraq into Vietnam II to recapture their youth would tell Greg and Mr. Mitchum that after we pulled out, everything on the Indochina peninsula was rainbows, and butterflies and, yes, even pretty golden unicorns for all their citizens...other than those who drowned trying to escape to Hong Kong or had their skulls turned into ashtrays.
By MoxArgon
You miss Hollywood stars like Mitchum who had the testicular fortitude to actually say that victory matters in a war.



And Treacher, you are not an evil person for liking that clip.



Your evil has many reasons.
By ikilledrosie
I say this all the time and my left wing loony roommates tell me that I have no compassion for people. Well duh.



I'm new here and can't be sure if this question has been asked before....so I'm asking it now....why are there 3 s's in password on the comment login screen?
By Bill D. Cat
ikilledrosie ,

If you ever ask that question about the three s's again , you better hope your bomb shelter is well stocked .... and put your tinfoil hat on backwards ..... and ..... down three shots of whatever ...... and .... the black helicopters ...... just ignore them .

It seems to me that the loss of testicular fortitude in Hollywood didn't just occur, it was payback for McCarthyism. They simply reversed the blacklisting.
By R.E.O. Speedwagon
You guys should read about Mitchum on IMDB. Hes like a straight Greg Gutfeld!
By calgrammy
McCarthy was right, Hollywood is full of Pinko Commies.
By ikilledrosie
Mr. Cat,



My bomb shelter is stocked just fine thank you very much. I have beer, all of Bill O's books, and my pink bunny slippers. My tinfoil hat is completely fashion forward and I'll take 3 shots of single malt if you don't mind.

By DarkUrthe
Robert Mitchum was smarter 40 years ago than any liberal is today.
By lizard boy
Mitchum is my favorite old Hollywood guy. That's probably why they named a deodorant after him.

Ikilledrosie, I'm guessing the O'Reilly books are for either kindling or TP. Smart move.
By JenJen
I know very little about Robert Mitchum so I looked him up on Wikipedia. Would this be the same guy that was expelled from high school, later arrested for vagrancy, put to work on a chain gang, became an escaped convict, and eventually had a nervous breakdown because he couldn`t conform to normalcy?

By calgrammy
Jen, do you believe everthing in Wiki? Even if true he is more of a man than any of the wussiefied "celebs" today. It is also very vogue to have a breakdown and go to rehab, it is like a bage of honor.
By tootsie
Re: Robert Mitchum: one of a kind



The above post fails to mention Mitchum's successful legacy.how a kid who had a difficult & problematic youth (arrested for vagrancy and sent to a chain gang?) overcame it to became a popular outstanding actor in a career that lasted 40 yrs. Mitchum was arrested for marijuana--a big scandal in 1950s Hollywood. It only added to his film noir magnetism.

Prude! ;)
By Mike H
He also reputedly ran 'shine as a kid, then co-wrote, co-directed, produced, acted in, and wrote and sang the title song for, a movie loosely based on some of his experiences. His kid brother was in the movie too.



Hey, Google it!
By veganvamp
I consider myself neither exclusively liberal or conservative. But, I like and respect a man fully committed to his belief.



And, to lighten it up a bit, doesn't it appear as though the mic is a dildo? Of course, I would notice that.
By matt m.
He WAS talking about the Civil War, right?
By matt m.
Cause I totally agree.

this describes every current day hollywood lib who has the ear of hillary, obama and any other dem candidate...
By salvator m
except for the chain gang thing, but feel free to substitue "rehab" and it's spot on.
By Bauer51
Robert Mitchum was a man's man. He would have kicked the snot out of these metrosexual (so-called) actors of today. Arrested for pot in 1948, and still kept a film career going. Now that's a freakin' man!
By Bill D. Cat
salvator m ,

Considering the last decade or so I think you should publicallly apologise for the " rehab " blast ....... then seek professional help .
By R.E.O. Speedwagon
Favorite Mitchum Quote:



"People make too much of acting. You are not helping anyone like being a doctor or even a musician. In the final analysis, you have exalted no one but yourself."



Too bad he wasn't around to say this after Clooney's bloviating Oscar speech.
By PowWow
And I thought he was dead. Unfortuantely I'm old enough to remember that guy.

These bigmouths today could learn, or get knocked out by him. Their choice.

"Thunder Road" stands up today as a film in B&W about a southern good ol'boys who ran moonshine; a forerunner of drug traffic.

By lizard boy
Running moonshine is really "a forerunner of drug trafficking."

Oh, really.

Back when Americans were free (before FDR)(yes, I know the timeline), they could make their own "alcoholic beverages" without interference from the federal government or liberal busybodies.

Mitchum embodied the American spirit. Just think Gregory Peck, with an edge.

"before FDR"? What Timeline do you know/are in? Shinetime? ;)

"Prohibition In the United States (19201933)was the era during which the United States Constitution outlawed the manufacture, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages.

By Sharlene
Making liquor at home was legal; selling it was not, unless you paid taxes. The southern tradition of moonshine came around long before Prohibition - which just increased demand.

"You don't scare me hippy.

Sinatra & I got chunks of fruits like you in my stool!



Also, why no love in the obits for the fine invention of my eponymously named antiperspirant?



The MSM dropped the ball again.... damn fruity punks...."

"Robert Mitchum was smarter 40 years ago than any liberal is today."



Robert Mitchum is smarter TODAY than any liberal.
By DarkUrthe
Conehead, I stand corrected. Agreed.



Lizard Boy, you are wrong about booze and the government. One of the first things Washington did was tax alcohol, which is why the moonshiners migrated towards Kentucky and so on.
By lizard boy
Sorry to confuse you, Toots. The "timeline" remark was an allusion to Prohibition. The bigger point was that, basically, starting with FDR the government became an emerging behemoth endangering ordinary freedoms.

You do have a point about drug traffickers: Think Joseph Kennedy.

By Texas Bob
Man I still love the song Thunder Road (it`s on my IPod). He really was the quintessential "See this fist? You're gonna smell it." kind of tough guy. Who in today's Hollywood lineup even comes close? I can't think of anyone. Maybe Bruce Willis, but he's got a ways to go to get there. Yippee Kiya Mutha F@&*#$!
By DarkUrthe
TB, if Bruce Willis was a tough guy he would have kicked the living shit out of Ashton Kutcher before letting him get a chance to poke Demi Moore.



But maybe that is the toughest we got...
By snakesnarrows
Mitchum, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra....they "got it".
By saltydog
All we got these days are pretty boys and wimps and pretty boys who are wimps. Not one of them has enough spit to shine shoes.

I have a vision. Tim Robbins meets Bob Mitchum in a dark alley.



Well, you know the rest...

Right on Robert Mitchum, I wish we had one not just wimp's.
