  1. Ah, in my book I'll take Bogie & Bacall over Scott & Dewhurst any day! Heck I'd even give ya' odds.... fuggitaboutit
  2. I just watched The Man Who Would Be King (1975)...Always one of my favorites. Great story, great cast, great scenes...and at times can alternate between poignant and Funny ! But enough about art ...lets dish the dirt. After all those stories and criticisms of Kubrick we've got to have something to say about Christopher Plummer? Michael Caine?? John Houston??? Sean Connery ??!?
  3. "We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship." ...John Lennon
  4. "Bette Davis is my bloody idol. I admire her more than any other film star." ...George C. Scott
  5. Great link HoldenIsHere, THANK YOU!! I'll have to make take some time to look through the other clips on that page too.... "If you can talk brilliantly about a problem, it can create the consoling illusion that it has been mastered." ...Stanley Kubrick
  6. Surprising...am I wrong but have we been carrying this topic for a while and nobody's even mentioned The Hustler (1961) ???? "You have the best excuse in the world for losing; no trouble losing when you got a good excuse. Winning... that can be heavy on your back, too, like a monkey. You'll drop that load too when you got an excuse. All you gotta do is learn to feel sorry for yourself. One of the best indoor sports, feeling sorry for yourself. A sport enjoyed by all, especially the born losers." ...The Hustler; Bert Gordon (George C Scott's Character)
  7. Personally, I believe Stanley Kubrick to be THE BEST DIRECTOR of our times...but hey, everybody's entitled to their opinion and 'The Best' is always a personal judgment call. After all.... "Nothing In Life Has Any Business Being Perfect." ....from The Lion In Winter (1968) not a Kubrick but another one of MY fav's
  8. Y'know, I really liked him in The Moodies but when he and John Lodge went and did that BlueJays thing in '75 it just blew me away and...OH! you meant SUSAN ?!? err...never mind She was kinda' hot too....
  9. How about...Walking In Memphis, Marc Cohn ???? "Then I'm walking in Memphis I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walking in Memphis But do I really feel the way I feel?"
  10. Too bad you didn't tune in during the battle scene Vautrin. Even though it was just a minor skirmish, Kubrick does THE BEST! Remember the checkerboard approach scene in Spartacus (1960)? or Paths of Glory (1957) ?!?
  11. " Dear friends, would those of you who know what this is all about please raise your hands? I think if God is dead he laughed himself to death. Because, you see, we live in Eden. Genesis has got it all wrong. We never left the Garden. Look about you. This is paradise. It's hard to find, I, I'll grant you, but it is here. Under our feet, beneath the surface, all around us is everything we want. The earth is shining under the soot. We are all fools. Ha ha. Moriarty has made fools of all of us. But together, you and I, tonight... we'll bring him down." ...from They Might Be Giants (1971)
  12. RARE AND WONDERFUL THINGS ON TCM THIS EVE... I just watched Enemy of the People (1978) with Steve McQueen. Maybe not the best of movies but an outstanding performance (against type) by Steve McQueen and a very poignant story, especially for our current times. Reminds me of The Roman Joke... And right after that is Ralph Bakshi animated The Lord of The Rings (1978) geeze! I haven't seen this since it's release....how Exciting!! oh and misswonderly3, you said about Kubricks' Barry Lyndon (1975): "Even though it was pretty long- just over 3 hours - I didn't suffer as much as I usual
  13. OHMYGOSH!!! We have to add that to our BEATLES MARATHON: Help, Hard Days Night, Let It Be, Magical Mystery Tour AND Martin Scorsese's George Harrison: Living in the Material World ( 2011) ...and pardon the dark humor but I guess Paul is no longer the oldest : "Yossarian: He was very old. Luciana: But he was a boy. Yossarian: Well, he died. You don't get any older than that." ....Catch 22
  14. Oh c'mon there DownGoesFrazier, I've always found The Beatles movies to have a certain' Marxist' quality about them (and Lennon certainly had a bit of a Groucho delivery) The scene in the police station from 'Hard Days Night' with Paul's 'clean' grandfather and Ringo is almost Kafkaesque~Marxist ! But what do I know, I get no respect.... Reporter: How did you find America? John: Turned left at Greenland. ...and on a more non moss-gathering topic: Exile On Main Street may be great but at my feast 'Beggars Banquet' is the best R&R album !
  15. "C'mon, c'mon down Sweet Virginia C'mon, c'mon down, I mean you C'mon, c'mon down you got it in ya', yeah yeah yeah You got to scrap that **** right offa' your shoes..." but personally, I Dig A Pony....
