The 1947 UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico was no accident! It was a diversion whereupon Victoria, the pregnant alien from Antares journeyed to Canada assisted by Navajo Indians who were close friends to a Captain in the Royal Canadian Mounties. Her son, Ontario Rose, was born on his ranch. The Captain raises the extra-terrestrial genius while Ontario's real father is an elderly planetary forefather. Their homespun adventurewith a touch of humor unfolds the story of alien inhabitation of earth today.

WELCOME ONE & ALL TO THIS MY NEW COLUMN!
It's well known that film historians and film buffs of all stripes are quick to submit a list of their supposed GREATEST films based on their personal criteria of excellence in creativity and technical achievement. 

To present a list of FAVORITE films is a more subtle matter. A wisp of memory - a silent smile to ones lips - a catch of ones breath in sadness or joy - an emotional attachment not predicated by empirical study - even cynicism is what this sort of list is created by.
And because of the list's PERSONAL nature - in turn, reveals as much about its writer as the aforementioned list.

I PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING:
This can be done singularly as a self-examination or better done among friends - each submitting their lists for scrutiny and cross-discussion. Determining the nature of YOUR PERSONALITY that prompted your selections will bring a new self-awareness and if done in a group can be insightfully and hopefully FUN!                 All best!    Patrick Symes

(my personal favorites NOT in order of my preference):

Your Assignment should you choose to enjoy a fun and insightful time ...
Plenty of paper and pen for you and your friends make a list secretly at first of your ten favorite films.  
Then share with each other why you like them. Keep it pleasant!

This column is now featured on the CENTER STAGE page of our website: www.TheLincolnStudio.com

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.  Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.  The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.  I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.  Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.



When I was a little girl I was happy and smart. I was in advanced reading and mathematics in the first grade. I was an A student getting 100% on all my math and spelling tests in the sixth grade. I loved school and I liked to know who was going out with who. In the eighth grade I had a crush with a guy named Corky. In high school there were a lot of cute guys.  I liked listening to the radio and relating the music to them. I practiced the piano every day several hours and took lessons every week. I played the piano for the school talent show and Church fundraisers. I was in the newspapers for playing in orchestras. - Paula Helen Moon

The element of fear has been manifested in countless films because it is an integral part of the human condition. Fear instills a need of bodily and spiritual protection against the seen and unknown. 
The film clips herein show shades of that intent ...

Since our Nation's inception every generation, to the present, has passed the Torch of Hope ever vigilant that the freedoms and tolerance set by our Founding Fathers would prevail, often at great price of physical and spiritual anguish.  
That Torch now passed to you and your children fueled by optimism and dedication to ensure our Sacred Trust.

We are sixteen years into the 21st Century having yet achieved colonizing our Moon nor reaching the aspirations we expected in the mid fifties when we met at the junction of the second millennium. The Golden Age of Cinema and Television is an expression pertaining to the span of the 20th Century and in my opinion, indeed it was! Computer technology and almost three dementional digital filming and photography has been perfected and appreciated all over the world yet the simple screenplay (script) has been compromised.  We rely too much on animation and computers to what once was, an epic cinema extravaganza giving work to hundreds of iconic actors, has been reduced generally to a warehouse laboratory and blue screens. It is true that the world of fantasies look real in today's hi-tech movie industry that overwhelms the audience with superbulus action fillers and quasi electronics but the fantasy on the silver scree of imagination transferred from the Silent Film era 1894-1927 and the black and white productions 1927- 1949 at movie palaces that included CinemaScope in color, VistaVision and Panavision in the latter half of the 20th Century is a fantasy well relived time after time.    - Richard C. Burriesci
