Eureka! Selectric! Getting caught up on my beloved General Hospitals today. 44 seconds into this clip notice what is front and center. While everything around it is being smashed into unrecognizable pieces the Selectric remains pristine. They know how to treat a star

What? I just watched that. Too involved in the movie I suppose. Could you give me exact minute in the movie? I am still watching tv show Clarice hoping to spot one

It is a testament to her acting abilities and to the scriptwriters' skills that I completely loathed her.

The resignation on Arthur's face as he again witnesses the brick wall that she is - "OK. Let's cut to the chase. Where do I get my damned drugs now?"

That IBM sits there like a mute Aztec idol or symbolic tombstone.  Awesomeness.

Watching some Ray Bradbury Theater today while painting and I note Ray's Selectric II on his desk at the beginning of each episode.
