Thanks, everyone. This one will never be a favorite, but there are few good moments in it. It is awfully long, though!

Thanks SK, KC and SC for an enjoyable break from shirts.  KC is right, though, this movie is awfully long.

I wonder how they get all that gold out of there ... and back to the U.S.!

That's a good question actually. I wonder how reliable civilian postal services were during WWI and II?

All on account of pulling a trigger.

Thanks everyone. I think the length is one of the reasons I don't watch it as much as other Eastwood films but I always enjoy it.

For our friends that missed out tonight, as I said there will be an encore screening on October 9.

Thank You. :)

Quote
At the start of 1914 the General Post Office was one of the largest employers in the world, with a workforce of more than a quarter of a million, but the Great War had a significant impact on the service. Many postal workers left to serve on the front, either as fighting men or as part of army postal and telegraph services. With its workforce massively depleted, the Post Office reduced services at home and employed women in large numbers for the first time. The Post Office also participated in a massive censorship operation and was involved in the mass distribution of items such as army recruitment forms, ration books and advertising material for war bonds.

That's a shame 2M, but don't worry because since it looks like Lin won't be able to make it either tomorrow, we're going to have an encore screening of Kelly's Heroes on Sunday October 9, 2011.

So anyone who misses out tomorrow, won't have to wait too long to see this great film again. 8)

SK, Thank you and I look forward to the encore screening of Kelly's Heroes on Sunday October 9, 2011. :)
