    I've seen it! I think I've seen all his films. One of my favorites is Lone Star. Another is Limbo. I had the chance to ask him once why he ended Limbo as he did, and he gave me the answer I had already guessed. Not everyone liked it, but I sure did.

    I'm late to this one, I know, but how about Working Girl (1988), starring Melanie Griffith.

    I would say (even if no one else would!) that Roger Moore's role in the television show The Saint prepared him for all the "Bond, James Bond" films.

    I'm going to add Groundhog Day (1993). Not an official holiday because it doesn't get its own Hallmark card and federal and state government employees don't get the day off, but it does get its own mascot: Punxsutawney Phil.

    Hold the Sunset, hilarious British comedy show starring Alison Steadman and John Cleese. If you watch British television shows as much as I apparently do, you'll recognize many of the supporting actors, too. Grace and Frankie, US television show Hello, My Name Is Doris (2016), starring Sally Field

    Interesting. I'm now reading Delayed Rays of a Star by Amanda Lee Koe. It's a work of fiction that got started because of a photo Koe found of Marlene Dietrich, Anna May Wong, and Lina Riefenstahl. It's fascinating, but it's not easy reading, partly because it doesn't shy away from political and wartime issues that the main characters sometimes don't see. I'm not finished reading it yet, but I still recommend it.
