"A Farewell to Arms" (1932) starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes

Directed by Frank Borzage, the film, based on Hemingway's 1929 novel about a love affair between an American ambulance driver and an English nurse in Italy during World War I, received Academy Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Sound, and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Art Direction. 

FunFact: In 1960, the film entered the public domain in the U.S.A. due to the failure of the last claimant, United Artists, to renew its copyright registration in the 28th year after publication. 

I wonder how many people reading this were alive when the book came out in 1929.

Or the movie in 1932.

Let's see... they'd be 84 and 81 years old, respectively.

I'm thinking not many.

If any.

Yes, Doktor Dorftrottel, I've already factored you in.

Sheesh.

But I digress.

Geezers, if you're out there and allowed computer access and your filtering program at Geriatric Park lets bookofjoe through and you can still operate a keyboard — yes, I know, that's asking an awful lot — please let us know.

That'll be cheery news indeed.

I think thats my problem the book of joe is too strong for my system is why I’m having palpitations. Does book of joe come in geriatric doses. I tried to look it up but I’m not very good with the computer. I tried a keyboard once it didn’t sound like a real piano so I gave it up. Also I need to ask do you take Medicare. Thank you and bless you.
