Since the whole credit thing is based on your rather dubious premise, if you want misterboo to get his just rewards you’ll just have to be extra vigilant.

Because I don’t agree with you. If you think you’re right, please continue, but no one else is going to do it for you. That’s the last comment from me on this page.

Cut it out guys. I just checked my email account an found a mountain of comment notifications. My two cents says that misterboo should defend himself, and that he really doesn’t care about being cited. I know I would not care about being cited. But if you want to continue the debate I respectfully ask that you do so privately.

I hear where you are coming from on this. I, for one, don’t list my contact info because I used to get into fights with Paul Warshauer, and other people like that, on this site all the time. I don’t want people who I view as genuinely unscrupulous having my contact info. That doesn’t happen anymore. But the Internet is still a big, strange place.

Even if you don’t want to share your info, you can go to this web address and set up a personal blog. Then you can talk privately all you want:

Okay folks, wrap up the squabbling. I’m in a comment deletion mood today and will start doing that for any and all antagonistic comments. This is a page for the Stamford Theatre — not for conflict.

If you posted a comment over the past few days and it’s gone now, that’s why. Have a good weekend …

It looks like all hell broke loose on this, of all pages. All I have to say is I’m thrilled with the Life picture. It’s great! That’s the marquee I remember as a little boy in the late 50’s.

I believe I once read that the arch was created by Gutzon Borglum, who also did Mt. Rushmore. Does anybody have any information on this?

The archway going into the theater (which may have been designed by Gutzon Borghlum), had at the keystone, a sculpture of the head of Eleanora Duse. When they were building the Rich Forum they tried to save the archway as an architectural gem, but either through accident or intrigue it fell down completely and smashed the bust in the keystone. Today there is a replica of the bust inside the lobby of the Forum theater.
