  1. I love it when you think you've got a movie figured out and then it turns and ends better than you thought it would. The Sixth Sense Murial's Wedding Raiders of the Lost Ark Being John Malkovich Juno
  2. There were commercials on radio
  3. I had planned on watching Black Narcissus tonight. What do you think of Peeping Tom?
  4. 1940 - The 13th Annual Academy Awards presentation was to have a performance by Judy Garland singing "Over the Rainbow" but an unidentified technician cut her off mid-performance for a commercial. The technician was fired before the ceremony ended Message was edited by: Selk

Was this the one with a bizarre rendition of "Singin' in the Rain" with everyone singing in raincoats in front of a matte painting of Noah's Ark? Strange, that movie keeps coming back to me though I've never seen it. I've seen several documentaries and a piece of the film will come up.
