|Long Description||An esteemed educator in L.A. used to show Ramrod to his film noir classes. A Joel McCrea Western a film noir? Few noirs come packing more deception, betrayal, ambiguity (psychological and narrative), and sadism (physical and psychological). Add a camera strategy that habitually latches on to a character and backtracks before him as he enters an unknown environment, and you've got a fine study in (fully justified) frontier paranoia. André De Toth claimed that the assignment was handed off to him by John Ford, no less. There's nothing Fordian about Ramrod, but it does anticipate the run of edgy Westerns that De Toth would direct in the '50s. Excellent cast, including Mrs. De Toth (Veronica Lake) as a femme fatale with father issues; a distinctive, sharply imagined Western town; an innovative sound mix attentive to nature and environment; and strong cinematography by Russell Harlan, soon to become Howard Hawks's favorite cameraman. --Richard T.

For a couple months, we have been working on a major revamp of the database. All the existing data will be saved of course but many new data elements will be created.
People have been asking for the ability to track nutritional information, ingredients and other data items related to various products.
To this point, we have not been able to track that information because of a limit imposed by the database layout. Adding these new fields would be very hard.
We have finally gotten the database into the correct shape for the new fields and many many more in the future. We will be able to track just about any type of data item for any given product type.
It may be a few more months before the input screens catch up to the database changes. We want the user interface to be smooth and easy to use. Using feedback we have already received about the current site we will be making changes to the input process.
We also need to take into account the existing applications that are using the existing data feed and we will also need to create a new updated data feed for people moving forward.
In short, big changes are coming now that the database has been revamped but all the existing functions will continue to work without interuption.
