Whatever Happened To Randoph Scott?
In 1974 the Statler Brothers asked in song, “Whatever happened to
That was their way of addressing the decline in the in morality and
quality of the movie industry.
The first five verses and the final verses of the song are as follows:
“Everybody knows when you go to the show
You can't take the kids along
You've gotta read the paper and
know the code
Of G, PG and R and X
You gotta know what the movie's
Before you even go
Tex Ritter's gone and Disney's
The screen is filled with sex.
Whatever happened to Randolph
Ridin' the range alone?“
happened to all of these
Has happened to the industry”
For over a
year and a half the old WatchDog was confined to a hospital bed.During that period, I passed a lot of time
watching movies that were filmed from the early 1930’s through 2016.
observation is that in the ‘30’s, ‘40’s, ‘50’s movie makers depended on quality
writing, good directing, and very talented actors and actresses to produce entertaining
films.It is amazing how many of those
early performers and it wasn’t limited to the stars, could dance, sing, and
point, probably in the early ‘60’s, the industry began to morph into the
anti-American, anti-Military, anti-Capitalism, anti-Religion, Ultraliberal, Pornographic
industry that it is today.
Hollywood will tell you that they are not pornographic,
but what else can you call full nudity and simulated(?) sex.They place this crap in PG13 and R rated
movies.Can anyone explain the difference
between Hollywood porn and XXX porn?
The truth is
that Hollywood currently, has very little talent at any level and without Special
Effects , nudity, and raw sex, Hollywood would be out of business.
television industry isn’t much better.
generally very good.
are few prime time shows that are both entertaining and decent family fair.
Even the news is bad on the major television networks.They tend to filter the news so badly that
distort facts and events until it nothing but propaganda.
FOX News reports
are far more accurate than the others, but they spend far too much time on commentary/discussion
and too little time reporting.
For those of
you that are fortunate enough to get ‘One America News (OANN)’; you have access
to excellent unfiltered news with only two commentary programs per day.And they make it clear just what is and is
rating in TV is just as bad as the PG13 rating in movies.
writers run out of ideas or ratings begin to slip, shows often resort to adding
sex and some programs, like “Two and a half men” are all sex from beginning to
example of a show running out of good writing was the “The Good Wife”.For two or three season’s it was a good
entertaining program.Then they hit a
wall and added an abundance of sex at which point a more accurate title would
have been “Just Another Slut”.
One notable exception
in television movies is the Hall Mark channel.They have an abundance of quality actresses and actors, quality stories that
don’t have to rely on sex or special effects to be entertaining.
In answer to
the Statler Brothers question “Whatever happened to Randolph Scott?”
Talent was replaced with nudity, sex, and special
Note: For those too young to know-Randolph Scott was a very talented actor in drama, light comedy, and best known for Western’s.
