9/10…I can’t think of a Clint Eastwood rom com off the top of my head. But I wrote one specifically for him, called “Inbox”. About a widowed man (Eastwood), who’s son doesn’t want to see his father live out his last years alone. So he secretly sets up an account on a dating site for his father. After utter refusal, Clint finally goes on a few zany dates, but does find a soulmate after all. Yay or Nay?

Me neither. The only one I got wrong. I thought it was a Roman Polanski movie, but that I believe was called the Tenant.

Never heard of "The Landlord." "Hey Landlord" was a one season comedy with Sandy Barron.
Beau Bridges starred in It, with Diana Sands and a young Louis Gossett Jr. It came out in the early 70s.
Hi Iron,
That sounds like a pretty good cast, poor Diana Sands died very young, else she might have
had a career like Lou Gossett.
The TV series Hey Landlord(1966)had an amazing assortment of guest stars, future big
stars like Sally Fields as well. Plus the entire cast of the legendary "The Committee"
also appeared. Garry Marshall's first effort, maybe MeTV could run it for the summer
as a change of pace, 2 hours of MASH is too much. Pair it with another 1 year wonder
like Good Morning World. There is a point of diminishing returns when you keep
burning off episodes of MASH at the rate of 4 a day, people become too familiar
with it and turn to something else.

9 out of 10. I guessed wrong on "The Landlord." I don't recall seeing that back then. Maybe that's why I goofed.

"Pull My Finger"


Sorry, couldn't resist 😁
I wish I'd thought of that! Well played, my friend!
Haha it was the 1st thing I thought of when I saw that finger!! 😆
And 'just relax', I won't mention the 2nd & risk giving the men here on the MeTV playground bad flashbacks to unpleasant doctor encounters! 🤭😁
