    Who was in all 5 films?

    Brrrcold, I started a thread called "Briefly Lyrical". That's the kind of lyric with the kind of composer that I was wanting for participants in that thread to bandy about. It's certainly one of the more memorable clever things that Cole Porter wrote. Please consider playing in that thread sometime.

    The Triumph of Donald Trump

    Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them. THE TWO-PRONGED CONSPIRACY THEORY that has dominated U.S. political discourse for almost three years – that (1) Trump, his family and his campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, and (2) Trump is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin — was not merely rejected today by the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was obliterated: in an undeniable and definitive manner. https://theintercept.com/2019/04/18/robert-mueller-did-not-merely-reject-the-trumprussia-conspiracy-theories-he-obliterated-them/

    Night Train to Munich has some Bond-ish elements. Not many gadgets but some good secret agent moments.

  10. Since Bogie's looking back, I want to mention a film that I liked very much. I'm not sure it has been mentioned in this thread. It's a 1987 Belgian movie called Crazy Love. I saw it in London when it was released but haven't heard much about it since. It's based on Charles Bukowski's writings (particularly The Copulating Mermaid of Venice, CA) and focuses on three stages in the life Harry Voss, from youthful exuberance to descent into misery. He has terrible acne, which is important to the story. The film's ending is as odd as they get. A strange, sad, and haunting film. Here is a quote from an article I just found about the film, followed by the link to the article, although I do not consider Crazy Love a horror film. "We first meet Harry as a twelve year old who falls in love with a princess who graces the screen of his local cinema. But after an encounter with an older woman who has had a bit too much to drink, his illusions of love are shattered. In reality things aren’t always as perfect as they are in fairytale movies, and thanks to Harry’s older friend his early attempts at getting laid leave him with experiences of adolescent horror. In the second story Harry is a nineteen year old ridden with acne, and this has turned him into a romantic pariah (if you throttled his neck, you’d produce enough custard to fill a bucket). Obsessed with a beautiful classmate, but lacking the confidence to talk to her, he instead turns to the liquor bottle knowing he can depend on it and that it won’t judge him because of the way he looks. However, through some drastic circumstances he does eventually get to dance with his teenage crush, albeit by having his head wrapped up in toilet paper for an oddly touching scene. The third and most disturbing story in the film finds Harry as a fully-grown homeless alcoholic who finally finds his perfect love in the form of a female corpse he steals from a parked hearse." https://horrornews.net/65198/film-review-crazy-love-1987/
