  1. For the role of The Terminator, I believe O.J. Simpson was considered... Many names were considered for both Vito and Michael's character...I know Redford was toward the top of the list for Michael.
  2. Lookit, I agree that the best time for films was throughout the "studio system" days. In fact, any list that I make is gonna be constructed of predominantly titles from the mid 30's to the mid 60's. I'm all too aware that the "golden era" was just that, and unfortunately is lost to us all forever. That being said, COME ON...

The richest man in town" scene -Angel's With Dirty Faces Cagney's crys of "Oh, I don't wanna die! Oh, please. I don't wanna die! Oh, please. Don't let me burn. Oh, please. Let go of me. Please... " -Braveheart Gibson's heart-wrenching "FREEEEEEDDOOOOOM!" -Field of Dreams The "Hey, dad...you wanna have a catch?" scene -Band of Brothers when the real Capt.

  7. Fifteen Reasons Why 1942 Was The Best Year IMO: #1 Casablanca #2 Casablanca #3 Casablanca #4 Yankee Doodle Dandy #5 Casablanca #6 Across The Pacific #7 King's Row #8 Casablanca #9 Gentleman Jim #10 The Glass Key #11 Tie: Casablanca & Casablanca #12 Now, Voyager #13 Casablanca #14 Mrs. Miniver -and- #15 (I can't recall the name, but it was a Bogart picture that was penned primarily by the Epsteins and directed by that Hungarian cat Curtiz.)
  8. The Top Five IMHO: #1 Mel Gibson's William Wallace and his cry of "FREEEEE-DOOOOOM" in Braveheart. I get chills just thinking about it. #2 Cagney's Rocky Sullivan and the "different kind of courage" he finds just before the execution scene. Powerful stuff, that. #3 Tom Hank's Captain Miller with his moving dying words of "Earn This" in Saving Private Ryan. #4 John Cazale as Fredo Corleone getting whacked on Lake Tahoe while saying Hail Mary's (his secret for catching fish). #5 William Holden's Joe Gillis and his famous pool dive. Honorable Mentions: -Edward G. Robinso
  9. Ingrid Bergman (Casablanca) Grace Kelly (Rear Window) -or- Marilyn Monroe (The Seven Year Itch) A win-win situation all around.
