In "The Bar Sinister" the funeral of Sam Whitlaw includes a glimpse of his tombstone which seems to have a death dte of 1874. If the tombstone says he died in 1874 then "The Bar sinister" must happen in 1874. I eat three meals a day plus a dessert after dinner and a late night snack later if I have saved up enough calories during the day. So I eat three to five times a day and thus an average of 300 to 500 calories per serving. I have been on a 1500 calorie diet since April 7, 2018 and have lost 132 pounds since I started. Jay Silverheels had a lot of other roles during the years when the Lone Ranger was in production. <url>https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0798855/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1</url> The epilogue to <i>Fort Apache</i> (1948) happens several years after the main action, since Lt. O'Rourke and Philadelphia Thursday have married and have at least one child, Michael Thursday York O'Rourke, who looks like he is a few years old. And York has been promoted at least one step. If there are any shots of York in the epilogue clear enough to show his shoulder strap insignia, two leaves on each shoulder strap would make him a major or a lieutenant colonel, while one eagle on each shoulder strap would make him a colonel. York is addressed as "colonel" in the epilogue, so viewers should look for two items or one item in a shoulder strap to tell his rank. Anyway, years must have passed between the main action in <i>Fort Apache</i> and the epilogue. So if York and Yorke are the same character, Lieutenant Colonel Yorke in <i>Rio Grande</i> (1950) should look older than Captain York in <i>Fort Apache</i> (1948). But then the question would be whether York in the epilogue to <i>Fort Apache</i> (1948) looks older than Yorke in <i>Rio Grande</i> (1950) and what their ranks are. We can hope that the one who looks older will have same rank or higher rank than the one who looks younger. The ranks and apparent ages of York in the epilogue of <i>Fort Apache</i> and Yorke in <i>Rio Grande</i> should determine which comes first, the epilogue of <i>Fort Apache</i> or <i>Rio Grande</i>. Since <i>Rio Grande</i> should happen in 1879 or 1880, if the epilogue of <i>Fort Apache</i> could happen a few years later that would put it in the 1880s, and the main action of <i>Fort Apache</i> could be in the early or middle 1870s. But if the epilogue of <i>Fort Apache</i> happens before <i>Rio Grande</i> it could happen in the mid 1870s and the main action could happen in the early 1870s or late 1860s. But if York and Yorke are two different characters comparing their apparent ages gives no clue to the fictional date of <i>Fort Apache</i>.

So that cliff might later become known as "Blind Man's Bluff". Here is a link to a discussion, including a image of Selenites: <url>https://alchetron.com/A-Trip-to-the-Moon</url> And here is a like to a still showing Selenites, including the Grand Lunar, from <i>The First Men in the Moon </i>J (1919): <url>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_First_Men_in_the_Moon_(1919_film)#/media/File:The_First_Men_in_the_Moon_(1919).jpg</url> I myself am descended from a marriage in 1822 between a women born in 1801 and a man born in 1779 who was twice her age. My ancestor was born in 1830 when his father was 51 and his mother 29. And the youngest child was born in 1840. Actually cheating in the basketball game was just the beginning of decades of cheating by Medford College in various movies. Medford even started cheating in academic quizzes in the 1995 television movie <i>The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes</i>. View all replies >
