  2. “Look here, priest, enough with the sermon. It sounded interesting, at least while I kept out of the rain; but if it’s a sermon, I’d sooner listen to the rain.” -- Man at gate Rashomon
  3. My favorite line in the movie, and in the book, builds off of that: “One time, Atticus said, ‘You never really knew a man until you stood in his shoes and walked around in them.” Just standing on the Radley porch was enough.” -- Scout

  5. "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain." Frank Morgan as Professor Marvel/The Wizard of Oz
  6. "It's easy to be a holy man on top of a mountain." Bill Murray as Larry Darrell in the 1984 version of The Razor's Edge.

  8. Thanks, Swithin! What a great website!
  9. I think my classmates and I were very lucky. As his name suggests, Dr. Damico was of Italian descent, and he efficiently ran the class with a steel fist in a velvet glove. He was in charge, and he never left anyone a crumb of a reason to question that arrangement. He never cut anyone any slack – you had to fully earn your A – but he would always gladly help the students with whatever they were having trouble understanding. He was also one of the most intelligent and most cerebrally funny people I have ever met. We never made it through a class without at least five or six good guffaws. He wasn
  10. My beloved Latin professor, Dr. Damico, used to say, "Latin is not dead; it's only horribly wounded."
  11. I went to see the Met’s “Live in HD” presentations of “Cav and Pag” today -- yesterday, now. Did anyone else see them, or this season’s productions of them? The only productions I have previously seen of these two operas were on DVD or video, all of which involved Franco Zeffirelli. One was the Met’s 1994 production of I Pagliacci with Pavarotti, Stratas, and Pons, James Levine conducting, and then the two 1982 Zeffirelli films of Cavalleria Rusticana, and I Pagliacci, with Domingo, Obraztsova, Bruson, Prêtre. I suspect the 1994 Met and 1982 Zeffirelli productions may have set the bar
  12. I can't remember when, but I was curious about her, too, several years ago, and was surprised to find that she and Michael Caine were married. And what a long marriage it has been, and still is! The pairing reminds me of Robert and Luciana Duvall, although the Caines have been together much longer.
  13. I know the Soviet space program was significantly different from the US space program, and I understand that the cosmonauts (at least at first) did not have as much input and control in the piloting of their crafts as did the US astronauts. I’ve also heard that it is a possibility that Vladimir Ilyushin may have actually been the first man into space, rather than Yuri Gagarin. Nonetheless, I still think Valentina's accomplishment is significant. Personally, I would be proud to shake her hand, or to have an autographed photo of her in her cosmonaut suit. Unlike Amelia Earhart, on her heral
  14. She seems to be a well-respected and well-lauded cinematographer, as well as now being a professor at UCLA. I would be particulalry interested in seeing her film about Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman to go into space. (I've often wondered why -- after all of these years -- Valentina still hasn't gotten more recognition here in the states.)
