‘All Quiet on the Western Front’

My name is Morrie Markoff and I can honestly say no movie in my long life has had the effect on my life than “All Quiet on the Western Front.”

If my memory is not faulty (and it often is although it amazes me what I remember, as it does others).


A watered-down version of the original almost surprised me when Cherito told me it was being considered being given an Academy Award.

I suggest they take another look at the original film, a heart wringer, with a well-known handsome Lew Ayres (Cherito boosts my ego by telling me I look like him).

Enough writing for today.

I will keep you informed.

Thoughts on “The Notebook”

I’m still glowing thinking about my birthday party [turned 109 in January].

It makes me want to have more.

My mantra:

I am one lucky guy.

P.S. Chorito and I watched one of my favorite movies titled “The Notebook” – It brought tears to our eyes.

Parts of it brought parallels to Betty and my lives.

I will always remember Betty’s arms around me.

“Morrie, when are we going home?”

We are home, I told her.

She died in my arms.

I think of her often.

I always will.
