Of Mice And Men, The most shocking twist of Gone with the wind years has been that Clark Gable had failed to take home the Oscar for Rhett Butler. The best action is honor went to Robert Donat for Goodbye; Mr. Chips of what may be the biggest surprise breathtaking Oscar.
Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck’s classic, with Burgess Meredith as the drifter and Lon Chaney Jr. as his slow-witted pal.

Beginning at 8:15 / 7:15 Central on Saturday, February 12, Turner Classic Movies continues its 31 days of Oscar with a presentation of a day of ten films nominated for best film of 1939. Many historians refer to 1939 Hollywood this year as the biggest Hollywood partly because of the quality of films produced during this year, but also for the diversity in the dura matter and the actors who played in movies. 1939 also marked the first time the best photograph was divided into two categories: black and white and color.
Then there’s Of Mice and Men to 10am/9c. Burgess Meredith, Betty Field and Lon Chaney, Jr. are among the movie stars. Based on the famous novel by John Steinbeck and adapted for the screen by Eugene Solow, the story of migrant workers in times of depression of the 1930s resonate with his listeners. Directed by Lewis Milestone and produced by Hal Roach, in addition to his nomination for best film, Of Mice and Men also received three other Oscar nods: two for the music of Aaron Copland for Best Music / Original Score and Best Music and scoring. Editor Elmer Raguse, the film also received Abest Sound / Recording nomination.

You jump into cupboards, springing from potted plants, cut the chicken feed, even crossing the street against the lights.

The rain has brought with him an army of mice and we are all faced with a multiple choice inevitable.

Should we ignore the problem and hopefully that will happen? Call an exterminator? Buy traps and / or the bait? Or call the trap of ancient wisdom about the good old bucket bottle – as advocated by farmers around the nation.

I was not aware of this simple technique disturbing described to me by visiting the teacher Dave Renfrey:

Take a bucket and fill it with water. Tie a bottle to the underside of a wooden stick and a bit of stale bread in the mouth of the bottle. Lean the board against the bucket. Pour a little olive oil on the neck of the bottle.

“The mouse smells of food, faces the plank of wood, mounted on the bottle to try to get the bait, slips off the neck and in the water,” said Dave.

During the time spent on a grain farm in a particularly bad mouse plague, Dave believes that they were getting twenty per bucket per night. When things got really bad, swap the 44-gallon buckets.
