A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Mar 1, 2020

39 Years ago I had the worst movie-going experience of my life. I convinced a date to take me to see "My Dinner With Andre."

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Mar 17, 2019

"Crooner" is just a Warner Brothers quickie (clocking in at 6 read more
