We'll be starting at the MGM Logo. This is at 0:00:09 on the R-4 DVD. It is after Leo the Lion's second roar. Set up your DVD here, and pause. We'll all be hitting "Start" at exactly the top of the hour.
We'll be taking three breaks during the movie. (Usually around 10 minutes)
The first break is at the start of Chapter 9 on the R-4 DVD. This is at 0:31:19. It is after the scene where Oddball first appears and is talking with Crapgame and Kelly.
Oddball says, " A Sherman can give you a very nice edge". Kelly says, "Where are these Sherman's?", Oddball replies, "Outside, Come on. I'll show them to you".
The second break will be at the start of Chapter 18 on the R-4 DVD. This is at 01:06:59. It is after the scene where Oddball is on the phone with Bellamy asking for
60 feet of bridge. Bellamy says, "I need support units, Oddball. Where am I going to find 100 guys just like that".
The final break is at the start of Chapter 27 on the R-4 DVD. This is at 01:45:04. It is after the scene where the sniper is in the clock tower is looking down on the
German guards through his rifle scope.

I hope to see as many members here as possible.
(I'm starting this thread early so I could add the event to the calendar--all events must have a thread to link to.)
Just a couple of reminders:
1) By default, this board gives you a warning message when someone else has posted while you're writing a post. That can get very frustrating in the heat of things in these threads ... but now the feature can be turned off, temporarily (or permanently if you prefer).
To turn it off, click the link on the brown bar near the top of the page to your profile:
You'll go to your profile page. On the left-hand side, there's a list of stuff you can do here including "Modify profile." Under that heading, click the link to "Look and Layout Preferences." Now you'll see some choices with little white checkboxes next to them. One of them is "Don't warn on new replies made while posting." Click in that box so there's a check mark there. Then, in the lower right hand corner, click "Change profile" and you're all set.
I find it also helps to use the keyboard shortcut when posting: alt+s. (Or in the latest version of Firefox, alt+shift+s.)
2) You can also use the "Quick Reply" feature: At the bottom of each thread is a brown bar with "Quick Reply" on the left hand corner. If you don't have it enabled, that's all you'll see and there will be a plus sign to the left of "Quick Reply." Click the plus sign, and a reply box will open beneath the brown bar and will stay there until you click the sign (now a minus) next to "Quick Reply" again. You can type your post right in this box and don't have to wait for a "Reply" page to open. It's a little harder to use smilies, though, unless you remember all the shortcuts!
