  1. I think the best TV theme music ever belongs to Canada. Living in a border town my whole life, CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada” was the soundtrack to the first 45 years of my life.
  2. Lou Costello loved strawberry ice cream. That’s good enough for me.
  3. El Dorado has Michele Carey in it, which makes it a great movie - at least for her 15 minutes of screen time.
  4. Comprehension be damned. People hear what they want to hear no matter how moronic it may be.
  5. 1. Brian's Song 2. Field of Dreams 3. Goodfellas 4. Godfather 2 5. A tie between every Abbott and Costello movie made at Universal
  6. Rizzuto was great. In March of 1995, my father, a lifelong Yankee fan, suffered a seizure and went into a coma for 6 days. By the time he came out of it, he struggled with his short term memory. Rizzuto was in town (Niagara Falls, NY) for an autograph signing along with Goose Gossage. I made a couple phone calls and set up a phone call from Rizzuto to my dad who was still in the hospital. The next day, I went to the signing to meet him. When I told him who I was, he got up from his table and shook my hand and asked several questions about my dad .Totally classy guy.

  7. Sylvia Sidney next: ToThe Shores of Tripoli (1942)

I probably saw each one at least 3 times. I really wish TCM (or any network) would show these movies on a regular basis so a new generation of kids could get exposed to their comedy.
  9. Not a movie star but when I was a kid in the ‘70s, I had a crush on tennis star Chris Evert. I had a dream where I somehow found myself in her house. She wasn’t there - in fact, no one was there and I didn’t know how or why I was there. I knew I would be in big trouble if I were caught so I headed for the door. Before exiting, I noticed her phone on a table. This was the 70’s so it was a rotary dial phone like we all had. If you remember these phones, they often had the phone number printed in the center of the rotary dial. I made it a point to memorize the number so I could call her later. Sa
  10. More Bud and Lou: Lou: Let me tell you more about this hunting business. One time, I was hunting and it was thundering and lightning and out of the woods came this big animal with horns. Bud: Reindeer? Lou: It sure did honey.
  11. Lou: I’m not gonna marry a pretty girl, I’m gonna marry an ugly girl. Bud: Why’s that Lou? Lou: Well, a pretty girl’s liable to run away. Bud: A homely girl is just as apt to run away. Lou: Yeah but who cares?
