I was watching an 80s episode of Family Feud (with host Richard Dawson),  and 100 people were asked to name a famous Ronald (top 3 answer were listed).  

 

Well Ronald McDonald was #1.    Next was Ronald Reagan (which I found funny, in that a fictional clown beat out a recent President).

 

Anyhow,  the next contestant,  a young women,  was asked to provide their answer and said Ronald Colman.    Dawson did an impression using the line from The Prisoner of Zenda (,,,far far better man,,,,).   

 

I was surprised that Colman was mentioned by the women but it was the #3 answer.     It was nice to see such a fine actor mentioned.

 

Thanks for sharing this fun comment. Maybe Colman's films were being seen by audiences for the first time on VHS.

With all of the Shakespearean adaptations out there, why are they leading off with "West Side Story"?

 

Perhaps because it's a blockbuster, and they usually go with a "big" film for the 8 p.m. slot.

Thanks for the prime lists--sometimes it's difficult to dig through everything on the site.

It occurred to me that some classic fans here who have ROKU don't have Classic Reel app because they think they have to pay for it...well...if you enter 4965 code in your account, you'll get it for free...my favorite Roku app...over a thousand films, new ones added daily, no buffering, no ads ever...(give it time to load--very large site)..not just the stuff on so many of their 'movie' apps, which are just lifted from youtube..some really good finds

 

You're welcome. And thank you for sharing this information. It's helpful!
