Kevin Costner and director Oliver Stone on the set of "JFK." (Warner Bros.)

You may not be aware of this, but Dallas, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the surrounding area -- especially down in Waxahachie -- have hosted movie production companies that have turned out some impressive classics, an infamous bank robbery duo yarn based on truth and a respected Kennedy assassination thriller.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips lasting a little over an hour, Larry focuses on the fun-filled "State Fair," the 1967 bullet-riddled thriller "Bonnie and Clyde" and more.
 
Movie-making brought director Oliver Stone and star Kevin Costner to the area.  The Dallas Cowboys were spoofed a little here, and Sally Field learned that we like her, we like her in a movie she starred in here.

Me, too.  I can remember when a half gallon of Blue Bell was $2.99, or on sale for 3-for-$5.  That's at least a dollar less than what they're getting for a pint now.  If my math is right, there are four pints in a half gallon.  Shouldn't a pint be about $2.25?  Of course not.  That would make too much sense, and, apparently, way too little cents.

What, that's not what shocked you?  Must be the Halloween candy.  The best bargain in town this week has to be leftover Halloween candy.  One of those giant gut-buster bags of bite-sized morsels such as BabyRuths, Whoppers, KitKats and Butterfingers, my personal favorite, are marked down to half-price now.  That means only 25 or 30 bucks a bag.
