    YOU'LL NEVER GET RICH

    I think your confusing that great line said in 1933 in "King Kong", when the Blonde sitting down asked the guy sitting next to her..."What's this show about?......His reply to her....."I think some sort of Gorilla"...and she responded to him as a guy walking in the aisle in front of her and stepping on her feet...."Don't we have enough of Gorillas in New York already?".........Seventy-Four years later and that line still holds up Today! LOL Bartlett

    YOU'LL NEVER GET RICH

    In most New York movie houses now, there are more rats ( Even Some Two Legged Ones) in the audience then there are people. Also Hollis - I agree with both your statements about Silvers & Astaire 100%. As the matter of fact...Silvers carried his "Bilko" style of acting in "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World". .

    Cinemascope...Thank you for all the information on the directors cut of "The Natural'. Instead of turning to the Yellow Pages from now on I'm going to you!! Bartlett

Also did you know his Brother was "El Exehantee" (SP?) the guy who approved the coffee in the old Savarin commercials. ( I'm trying to forget that too) Bartlett

Sorry he couldn't fight himself out of a paper bag! Now DeNiro in "Raging Bull" & Newman in "Somebody Up There Likes Me" and even Elvis in "Kid Galahad"....they could fight!!! Bartlett

    Cinemascope - Thanks for the info on "The Natural". I only have it on VHS but was planning to get it on DVD, now I'll look for that copy. You are just a wonderful source of information!! MissGoddess - I didn't like Russell Crowe until I saw "Cinderella Man". Outstanding Movie that in my opinion should have gotten the accolades that were bestowed on "Million Dollar Baby". If you do go for boxing movies ( like me ) check out Robert Ryan in "The Set Up". It is one of the better boxing movies and would have been #26 on my list. Also "The Manchurian Candidate" would have been #27....I better stop now or else I'll list my top 1,000 that I could see over and over again!! Bartlett

    robert redford

    I like Robert Redford but the ONE movie that "Sticks Out" as the Very Best is "The Natural". The Titanic Home Run that he hits to win the pennant was an ending to behold. When it hit the lights and set off a chain reaction to the other lights, and the sight of Roy Hobbs rounding the bases as his Manager and Coach looked on sent a chill down my spine. There aren't many movies that I've seen that gave me that type of reaction, but this one did BIG TIME! A Great Movie! Bartlett

    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"!

    How about having a "Made for tv movie day"

    > Sybil? Brian's Song? Duel? > > I'd love to see them all. But not on TCM... Why not? Would you rather see "Good Times" with Sonny & Cher for the 12th Time on TCM instead?

    How about having a "Made for tv movie day"

    The only TV Movie that I would consider is: "Brians Song" - With Billy Dee Williams & James Caan & Jack Warden Bartlett
