An excellent history of severe weather forecasting is "Storm King," by Lee Sandlin, published by Pantheon Press in 2013.  It can be found on Amazon for as little as $10 in Kindle format, $13 in paperback, or in hardback for about $18.  An Audible Books narrated version is also available for about $24 (free with a 30-day trial).

This film was made in the shadow, so to speak, of Cecil B. DeMille's epic film, "The Ten Commandments," as were a number of other Biblically-based films during the 1950's and early 1960's.  It should be pointed out that the Biblical text contains only the "bare essentials" of the story of Ruth.  More than likely, the producers felt the need to fill in the gaps, as it were, to flesh out the story and give it sufficient dramatic interest to hold the audience's attention.  Compared to several more recent films that claim to be based on Biblical texts, this film is of far higher quality, despite its age!  Also, this film was one of Peggy Wood's last film roles before her death (her final role was that of the Mother Superior in "The Sound of Music," based on the story of the Trapp Family Singers).

The sound and video tracks are out of sync with one another.  This is particularly apparent when a police officer or one of the writers speaks.  Please see if this can be corrected.  Many thanks!

Awesome work, Clemente!  Keep it up!  BTW, have you ever considered trying out to be a teen fashion and/or fitness model?  With your awesome good looks, I'll bet you could make a fortune!  Keep up the good work!

Allen Patterson Newman was found strangled to death in his cell  circa October 7, 2000.  It is unclear whether he was strangled in his cell by someone else of if he committed suicide.

Juan Carlos Chavez, after exhausting all of his appeals, was executed by lethal injection on February 12, 2014, at 8:27 P.M. EST at the Florida State Prison in Starke, Florida, there by officially closing this tragic case once and for all.  His poor mother, Claudine Dianne Ryce, died of a heart attack in February of 2009 at the age of 55.  His older half-sister, Martha Ryce, committed suicide in January of 2013, at the age of 35--a sad postscript to a sad and tragic case.

The tempo of any organ piece has to be determined, at least in part, by the acoustics of the building in which a given instrument is located.  Most European churches and concert halls have significantly longer reverberation times than do their counterparts here in the U.S.  This is why so many American organists play the Toccata significantly faster than most European organists.  On the other hand, I remember having a recording of this same Toccata played by Xavier Darasse that was very fast indeed, yet, somehow, sounded very clear and exciting.  Maybe the voicing of the organ (which was a Cavaille-Coll, IIRC) had something to do with it.  The proper combination of voicing and acoustics can make a HUGE difference in the final result, turning an otherwise mediocre performance into the thrill of a lifetime!

Your second year transformation is even MORE awesome!  Keep up the good work--and again, why don't you try out to be a model--or maybe even a glam rocker?  Either way, you'd be AWESOME--and if you did both--WHOAH!!

UPDATE:  Later in the episode, the narration is slightly louder than the music.  All in all, it sounds like it needs a complete remixing, to provide a more balanced, more natural sound.
