    I try to be sensitive to my tender side, but I've never cried at Quigley....except maybe that I don't own that Sharp's rifle of his...!

    Ugh...I can't explain here why you should have cried...but I get where you're coming from....bein' a man and all. I've never seen a real gun in real life, but I must say, I was quite impressed with that 'scope'...especially since it was from 'back in the day'...Quite impressive...

    Nope.There were actually two, Man from Snowy River, and Return to Snowy River. The Man from Snowy River (1982) - IMDb

    "Man From Snowy River", along with "Australia" and "Quigley Down Under" are part of the Australian film making industries' revenge for America inflicting Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton on the rest of the world.

    With the possible exception of "Australia", These came out before anybody knew or cared who Kim or Paris were......

    You are right there...LRM will love this one...'Kenny' The portable-toilet technician. I thought this was a real documentary about a portable-toilet guy travelling from Australia to Nashville for a convention. It wasn't until I was told it was a movie that I had a clue...Honest to God, I thought it was a documentary about this guy 'Kenny', and I felt so bad for him because of his ex-wife/father/brother all the people that treated him so poorly...I was shocked when it was pointed out to me it was a 'movie'... I really need a stronger dose of 'brunette' hair dye cause I can't hide the 'blonde' much longer...
