  • In “O Brother, Where Art Thou?,” Between Challenger Stokes & Incumbent O’Daniel, Which Is The Democrat . . .? . . . and which is the Republican?
    Defend your answer, making it as well-reasoned as possible.

    Reminding you if it’s been a while: One of the side-plot that gets entwined with the main one is a gubernatorial election wherein Homer Stokes (Wayne Duvall) is running for governor against the grouchy elderly incumbent, Pappy O’Daniel (Charles Durning).

    • Curator says:

      Homer Stokes was probably a Democrat being that it was the pre-Vietnam Years and all the KKK members were Dixiecrat type Democrats

  • Sierra says:

    Anyone Knows What Movie This Is? What is the movie with the little girl with psychic powers and she makes people’s nose bleed it’s the only part I remember……..oh and the part where she is in the classroom and she breaks the fishtank with her mind?????

    • Curator says:

      I think it might be ‘The Fury’ (1978) with Amy Irving.
      From wikipedia : The plot combines elements of horror and the spy thriller. A teenage girl, Gillian Bellaver (Amy Irving) discovers that she possesses psychic powers, including telekinesis and extra-sensory perception, but that other people suffer bleeding if they touch her. She volunteers to attend the Paragon Clinic, whose director, Dr. James McKeever (Charles Durning), works for a shady intelligence operative named Ben Childress (John Cassavetes). Childress has betrayed his friend Peter Sandza (Kirk Douglas) and is using Sandza’s psychic son Robin (Andrew Stevens) in research into the weapons potential of psychics.
      Hope it helps!!! 😉
