  3. That's a great story, Fred, of someone with firsthand experience from those times. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Fred, After Willard kills Kurtz, he goes & looks through Kurtz' notes & comes across something Kurtz wrote that says "exterminate them." It's taken directly from the book, btw. And interesting your mentioning the SNL skit where somebody is sent over to the Phillipines to kill Coppola. A great documentary you should watch is called HEART OF DARKNESS: A FILMMAKER'S APOCALYPSE which is a doc Copolla's wife made about the making of Apocalypse Now. It's actually very surreal & strange how life imitated art & vice versa with the making of that movie. Copolla did in fact unwit
  5. Andrew Duggan was in LOGAN'S RUN (I'm assuming from Liam's post) with Michael York Michael York was in Cabaret with Joel Grey Joel Grey was in L.A. Confidential with David Strathairn David Strathairn was in Dolores Claiborne with Jennifer Jason Leigh Jennifer Jason Leigh was in Hudsucker Proxy with Paul Newman Next: Buck Henry
  6. Fred, there was also a third ending that was only in the original theatrical release: After Martin Sheen gets back on the boat, you see a jungle being incinerated from bombs being dropped as credits roll. Coppola took the ending off because it implied that Sheen's character had had the island destroyed after he left, thus "exterminating" them (which was Brando's last directive). Coppola didn't want that implied, feeling that Sheen's character would not have done that.
  7. Ben Chapman was in CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON with Whit Bissel Whit Bissel was in HUD with Paul Newman Next: Celeste Holm
  8. Instead of a , it should be a ] , SansFin (ha ha). Last summer, I visited my nieces age 5 & 7 in Montana. Because of reunion logistics, I ended up sleeping alone in their bedroom. I noticed they had Woody & Buzz Lightyear dolls from TOY STORY. Every night I would move them to different locations & then wouldn't say anything to them about it the next morning. When they asked me how the dolls got moved, I would feign ignorance & tell them I didn't know what they were talking about & that I'd never seen the TOY STORY movies (a lie, of course). I'm sure I had them
  9. Here's the great Frank Gorshin imitating the likes of Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Rod Steiger, & Marlon Brando on Dean Martin's classic variety show from 1966. Brought to you in living color, on NBC:
  10. I first saw YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN without having seen what it was based on & I remember thinking it was hilarious. Then I saw the original FRANKENSTEIN movies & thought: "Hey, they stole that from Young Frankenstein!!" (ha ha) Then when I rewatched Y.F. it was almost like watching it for the first time cause I got all the references.
  11. PUH--LEEASE!!! I came on here to GET AWAY from the Royal Baby!! :_|
  12. This movie is extremely funny any way you look at it. But it's even funnier (if that's possible) if you've seen the first couple of Frankenstein movies made in the early 30's because you get the references. They actually follow the plot(s) pretty closely. My favorite moment is them playing Charades while Peter Boyle chokes Gene Wilder. sed-a... SED-A-GIVE!! Peter Boyle's reaction when Gene Hackman demolishes his cup is great too.
  13. Florence Stanley was in UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE with Sandy Dennis Sandy Dennis was in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF with Elizabeth Taylor Elizabeth Taylor was in CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF with Paul Newman Next: Olive Carey
  14. Interesting story about Monk, misswonderly. Ever see a movie called Straight No Chaser? It's a doc on Monk by Clint Eastwood. Yeah. He was very strange. And those are some great musicians you listed, james. I'm familiar with some of them. I'll have to check out Bireli Lagrene. There are so many incredible musicians out there it's scary.
  15. Who are some of your favorite musicians, james? I've played enough jazz to know that the best musicians by far are jazz musicians. Because not only do they have more technical ability, generally speaking, than rock or country or even classical musicians, but they are making it up as they go along because jazz is the art of improvisation. I think my favorite jazz musician was Thelonious Monk. During his solos, the way he connected his musical thoughts from one moment to the next was genius. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ9El7k4mNo
  16. I would rate him very high as an important bassist in rock. Not technically but as someone who brought a melodic sense to bass playing that was unprecedented. He came up with incredible bass lines that helped bring bass more to the forefront. Like you, I love his bass playing on Rain. But also on Dear Prudence, With a Little Help From My Friends, Hey Bulldog, Come Together, Something. Too many to count, really. My favorite rock bass player is Rick Danko of the Band. It took me 20 years to play their songs. Not cause they were hard technically but knowing what notes to play & w
  17. And speaking of the Boss, misswonderly, check out this very famous cover of a Sprinsteen song. This is rock & roll performace at a very high level. Only flaw I hear is that the drummer is singing flat. And check out the keyboard player. Notice how he's playing the very fast repeating figure with the lead guitar in his right hand & at the same time playing a synthesizer part with his left hand. BTW, the keyboard player is who the band was named after.
  18. > {quote:title=jamesjazzguitar wrote:}{quote}Well I'm at my best soloing in the keys of Bb and Eb since those are the horn keys and many of my favorite jazz standards are in those keys. Most rock and blues guitar players I know like the key of E the best since they can play open strings and at the 12 fret. I can play in the key of E but I prefer not to. Also the 53 Gibson L7 I have, while it does have a cutaway, isn't great to play high up the fretboard. But in the middle of the fretboard: This guitar has a sound only one can only get with an over 50 year guitar. As a bas

  20. Here's a guy admittedly not a great singer. But who just gave a great interview on Marc Maron's podcast... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEY6_jcrzI8
  21. Here's another obscenely talented singer/songwriter/musician/rock star... (imo)
  22. I'm a huge Elton John Fan, but imo he's not as good a singer as Paul McCartney (see previous comments). Elton has more talent in his little pinky than the biggest pop stars of the last 20 years combined (imo). First time I remember hearing an Elton John song was when I was a little kid & heard ROCKET MAN on the radio as I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep. That lonesome, plaintive voice just grabbed me...
  23. Before we start a fistfight here, I'll change the subject. Here's Elton live in the 70's when he was at his best vocally (he still had a falsetto). This is one of my favorites of his. I like the opening bass line that actually starts on the 5th instead of the root. Very unusual for rock music (very Brian Wilson actually). BTW, guitar players & bass players find a lot of Elton's music very challenging to play cause his songs are in piano keys (Bb, F) instead of guitar keys (G, D, A) so not a lot of open strings to fall back on. This song is also very autobiographical cause the
  24. > {quote:title=misswonderly wrote:}{quote}BigFaceSmallRazer, I don't think jamesjazzguitar said Paul did not have a "rock" voice. And I know I didn't. > Paul McCartney has a great rock singing voice. Just one listen to "Oh Darling" will confirm that. > CrazyBlonde said Elton John was a better singer live. Finance said McCartney didn't have a rock voice. > > > > > Anyway, I think with something as personal as one's response to a singer's voice, there's no "right or wrong". You're right, misswonderly. This is also subject to opinion. Up to a point.
  25. > {quote:title=jamesjazzguitar wrote:}{quote} > Well BigFace, I'm glad it is you taking the heat here instead of me! What you posted about Paul and John is how I feel. Funny you mention Ticket To Ride. I play this song with the guys I jam with and they were surprised I volunteered to sing the lead (John's) part. Well we started and I had to stop the other guy and say 'hey your singing Paul's part and that means you have to sing a third up from the notes I'm singing and only at certain times (those times being when the song hit a higher range). So you're right heard as a
