  1. Re: “Undercupping” I just learned A FUN NEW WORD TODAY!!!!! THANK YOU! ps- Yes absolutely, I amend my previous statement, undercupping for all!!!!
  2. NO WORRIES! all your mots are bon and jus!
  3. OH! I’m getting old and smoking too much weed to get through the Trump administration, I totally didn’t realize that was from “some like it hot“, I thought it was from CLUE!!! Man I have really lost some gray cells in the last four years, because I have seen both films over 20 times (and I’ve seen CLUE at least 5 times that!) I hang my head in shame! ps- That quote fits perfectly though, almost makes me sad they didn’t work it in to one of the three endings of CLUE!
  4. Can I interest any of you in fruit or dessert? PS- And on this fateful day, the long-standing And immensely popular “I just watched” thread ceased to be about movies we just watched and became a thread recapping the script of the movie CLUE, and all were happy, And there was great rejoicing in the land...
  5. YOU CANNOT MAKE AN OMELET WITHOUT BREAKING SOME EGGS- ANY COOK WILL TELL YOU THAT!!!
  6. i'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that THERE IS A SLIGHTLY GAY UNDERTONE TO THIS STORY.
  7. [i'M SORRY THE ONE FOR SYLVIA MILES IS SO BLURRY] (although perhaps aptly so)
  8. I watched EVIL UNDER THE SUN (1982) on TCM. I don't know why, But I had forgotten that the opening credits have THE MOST MARVELOUS ILLUSTRATED TITLE CARDS, sadly some of my FAVORITES, I could not find online, but here are a couple I can: [I literally leapt out of my chair, paused my Television and snapped photos with my phone for some of them] They used to show this on HBO in the 1980's and I loved it almost as much as DEATH ON THE NILE and it is where I learned about COLE PORTER (the use of his songs for the film's soundtrack was a TERRIFIC IDEA.) technical
  9. Ps- you just KNOW that the National En-Quirer ran stories for years that BARBARA JEAN WAS ALIVE AND SPOTTED AT A DAIRY QUEEN IN LITTLE ROCK.
  10. Now that I think about it, I suppose BARBARA HARRIS’s role in NASHVILLE was LYNDON B JOHNSON.
  11. I was a little hard on Ronee wasn’t I? She does have one of those “gift to every actor” scenes (a la THE ROSE or COAL MINERS DAUGHTER) Where her character has an onstage breakdown and starts prattling, She did a good job with it. It’s a shame the actor who played her husband wasn’t better- they have a scene in the hospital that really stops the movie dead in its tracks. ps- They really don’t do a very good job of explaining just why the hell Scott Glenn seems to be so fascinated with her, or did they and I missed it? I know there was some ridiculous story about his mother putting out BA
  12. I thought the same thing watching the Baxley/JFK scene...just an odd, odd scene. At least TOMLIN had some hits ahead- poor RONEE BLAKELY- I imdbed her and her follow up feature to NASHVILLE was- get this Larry Buchanan’s “From the private files of J Edgar Hoover” Which TCM has shown recently and which a few of us will gladly attest is A BREATHTAKINGLY AMATEUR effort- Actually I take that back, there was no effort involved. At least I hope not, MAN is it BAD!! I guess she just had a hard time getting work for some reason. She of course played the mother in the original “nightmare
  13. I finished NASHVILLE (1975) SPOILERS! Big thanks to everybody who replied to me on this. I have to say I don’t think I liked it, it gave me kind of a READY TO WEAR Vibe: a similar sense of “just what what the hell was that all about?” at the end, director and co. give us a dozen different threads but they don’t weave together into anything. And I get that Exact same sense from NASHVILLE, In the end I don’t really see why we were supposed to follow around any of these insufferable, BADLY DRESSED people. I can’t remember how, but I knew that “Barbara Jean“ was as
  14. I just watched a certain someone get impeached for a second time (2021) Four out of four stars, loved it, Although at about 4.044 hours it went on for a little long.
  15. The book by KAZUO ISHIGURU is superb. It was one of the first "grown up" books I read ca. age 15.
  16. That was one of the few songs in the film I didn’t mind too bad. ps- Taste in music can be very subjective, so please don’t anyone get too offended by the fact that I’ve been vocal about the fact that I don’t much care for most of the songs that appeared in NASHVILLE. If it means anything to any of you, my favorite song of the entire decade of the 1970s is without question ME LOST ME COOKIE AT THE DISCO.
  17. “She’s Cookin in another Man’s Fryin’ Pan” is- honest to GOD- the name of one of the songs. edit- When I get to my computer tomorrow I’ll post the lyrics. edit edit: “My babys cookin in another man’s Pan” Is actually the name of the song, but that’s equally stupid.
  18. ALSO, the STRUGGLE of my version is not about PAT AND MIKE being in love and beating society, THE STRUGGLE is their working together TO WIN! (and beat THEMSELVES!) OR as KATE HEPBURN says in the original "lick myself" (and i bet KATE wished like anything she could!)
