  1. The television series VEEP I am almost finished watching all seven seasons, and I wonder sometimes if life is imitating art or art is imitating life!
  2. To this list I would like to add Nicola Walker, who is the lead detective in the British television series Unforgotten.
  3. Lloyd Nolan started the Michael Shayne series of films. Hugh Beaumont finished the Shayne series (although it's hard not to picture him as Mr. Cleaver!). Beaumont and Nolan actually appeared in many noirs.
  4. Brigadoon in Brigadoon (1954) is otherworldly, isn't it? I think The Martian (2015) counts!
  5. When Harry Met Sally (1989) Harry Potter series includes eight films, starting with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001) and ending with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2 (2011)
  6. The Santa Clause (1994) The Santa Clause 2: The Mrs. Clause (2002) Bad Santa (2003) The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006)
  7. It's not large, but it is Big (1988), starring Tom Hanks.
  8. But there was a medium in a show called Medium, starring Patricia Arquette.
  9. Seabiscuit (2003). Devlin and Alicia rendez-vous at the racetrack in Notorious (1946). Michael Shayne, Private Detective (1940) starts at the racetrack.
  10. The buffalo stampede in Dances with Wolves (1990) Cowboy (1958), with Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon
  11. The Christine Jorgensen Story (1970)
  12. The Dick Van Dyke episode called "The Brave and the Backache." It's the one where Rob uses one excuse after another to avoid going to Lake Sissy Manoonoo with his wife Laura. Mumford (1999) Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
  13. Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005): The opening is a schtick with Sandra Bullock wheeling a baby in a stroller into a bank, but the baby is really a doll with a camera watching the events in the bank unfold after Bullock's character is recognized.
  14. Top Cat and Choo Choo Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Foghorn Leghorn and George P. Dog (aka Barnyard Dawg), and Henery Hawk (I know I'm late, but I couldn't resist.)
  15. Casablanca (1942) (Probably the most famous in the states, I would guess.)
  16. It's not a cliff exactly. Robert Wagner's character goes over the edge of a steep drop created as the result of copper strip mining. I guess you could call it an artificial cliff created by capitalism and copper! He pushes his first girlfriend off a tall building. I'm not aware of any other high structures in the film, but it's been several weeks since I last saw A Kiss Before Dying.
  17. And still handsome, I might add!
  18. Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Hotel or motel for the El Royale? I'll let the readers of this forum decide, which I think means you, TopBilled, because this is your category! If my vote counts, I would call it a motel based on its one-level structure.
  19. Barefoot in the Park (1967) starts in the Plaza Hotel. The Out-of-Towners (1970) really wish that they could get into the Waldorf-Astoria.
  20. By the way, if you are a fan of Stephen Rea, he's really good in a four-part murder mystery called Flesh and Blood that's showing on PBS stations.
  21. Dolours Price dies a while ago now. She and her sister were quite active in the IRA. But I'll say no more. I read Say Nothing because I heard the author in an interview about his book say that he was researching a murder mystery and inadvertently solved it by the time his research was done. Fascinating interview and fascinating book. Well worth a read, so no spoilers from moi!
  22. Odd Man Out (1947) Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland is a 2019 book by Patrick Radden Keefe that mentions Stephen Rea. Seems Rea had some ties to the IRA. It's a really good book, too. I wouldn't be surprised if the book is made into a film at some point.
