The Drivel Part of the page. A few years ago, my wife requested a Debbie Reynolds (1932-2016) movie ranking page. For some unknown reason, especially since she has done so many things to make this website better and easier to maintain, I have failed to follow through with that request. Well last night, I told my lovely wife that I was finally ready to publish her Debbie Reynolds page. I then asked her for the first time why she wanted a Reynolds page. Her response….”Because she has a cool first name”. In case you could not guess it….my wife’s name is Debbie. So for my Debbie….here is finally a Debbie Reynolds movie page.
