    Mad Mad Mad Mad World not in top 100??

    > What a great movie!...after the 100 or so times I > have watched it...I still laugh at the greed these > people have to find the 350 G's under the "Big W"! > It is indeed in my opinion an "Essential"! I love the movie and still laugh but I've noticed that as I get older, I don't want to watch the whole movie. I think it's because I know the thing by heart. And it does seem to be getting longer every time I see it. The scene where Buddy Hackett and Mickey Rooney are trying to wake up Jim Backus is one of the best, I can't drink anything when it's on. And Paul Ford (one of the great character actors) trying to direct the plane down is great too.

    > Girl in Gold Boots is one of my favorites. The bit > with Servo singing about LA. I can't quit laughing when the drugged out dancer talks about her "beautiful mind". BTW, isn't the Prince of Space the one with the Japanese shoe shine guy who battles aliens? I seem to recall the huge banner of Hitler hanging on the side of the building, creepy, since the movie was made in the 50's.

    Gone Without Fanfare

    Thanks for the info and picture of the Mauch twins. The Prince and Pauper was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. Shame is, I can already hear the sounds of silence at the next Academy Awards sho.

    Wash Post "Letter To The Academy"

    It's That Time Again-GWTW And The Oscars

    > Checking in as a diehard GWTW fan... > > Every time it's on, I vow not to watch AGAIN, Otterhere, I vow not to watch it either, but I do. And I know why I watch it, Clark Gable. He's so good looking in it. His clothes, his hair, the color, he never looked better.

    And the Oscar goes to.....

    We didn't start watching until 6:45 PST and they where already in their seats and on the way to the first award. I have to say the only reason I watch any more is to see the memorial montage. I like to see the films that where chosen to celebrate a long career. But every year it's difficult to hear 3 hands clapping for an older actress/actor. Glen Ford deserved better. I haven't seen any of the films that where nominated so it didn't mean much to me. I would have loved to see Peter O'Toole win but not to be.

Just wanted to say the keywords in your post Ken are "government made promises". I stopped believing in Santa and the tooth fairy when I was 5. I think I quit believing the speeches and promises not long after that.

  11. > George Bush. > > Al George v2.0 is menacing alright, along with several other adjectives. If a writer where to write a story about him and his term in office, who would believe it? Our government quit caring about our citizens years ago. Everytime we send food, build a school or open a hospital overseas it's like slapping us in the face. How can we help others when we neglect ourselves? Anyway, a public official who is menacing in a different way is the mayor in Pleasantville. The whole book burning, idea suppression makes me sick to my stomach.

Hannibal Lecter is menacing (in every way) in Silence of the Lambs. And Richard Widmark would make me frightened.

    Anna Nicole Smith dies...

    > I can't believe how much press time this story is > getting. I'm sorry what happened to Anna Nicole > Smith, but people with actual talent - like > scientists, artists, doctors, authors, inventors, > etc. don't even get a sentence. Movielover11, my thoughts also, except that I'm not particularly sorry she died. Just don't care. She literally made her bed. I heard her referred to as "Americas Rose" the other day. She ain't my rose!!. Maybe kudzu or poison oak, but no roses. Everytime I see something on the news about her, I tell my kids it's time for Lifestyles of the Stiff and Brainless.

    The Golden Globes

    > Julie: > > So you are one of the ones who have seen Hugh before > his American transformation? I loved him in > Blackadder... What a hunk of a chap! > > http://hughlaurie.net > > Danny Hugh is in the Annie Lennox video for Walking on Broken Glass....she leaves Hugh for John Malkovich. That's just wrong. And Hugh and Malkovich are in The Man in the Iron Mask. It's been awhile since I've seen it but I think Hugh is tastefully naked in Peters Friends.
  15. Casablanca is a favorite for so many reasons, but I really love We're No Angels. I find myself cheering on Adolph, the unseen snake!
