  1. As i was saying it was under nommed by the Academy Best picture that year were> *OUT OF AFRICA (swept 7) (& must rank among the all-time finest scores 7 a superb companion piece to JohnBarry's beautiful music to his 1980 Sowhere in Time music) Color Purple Kiss of the Spider Woman Prizzi's Honor & Witness
  2. When they were about to start filming R. Train he told other convicts about it & they just laughed because he was so skinny, so he wore padding for the epic Yet again the AMPAS screwed up though & nommed co-star Eric Roberts was up for support vs being in it more than Jon Voight? It's based on a story by Akira Kurosawa
  3. You really should buddy, a powerhouse motion picture! Only grossed $11m. Vight wasa lmost unrecognizable in the epic
  4. & The Straight story (****-stars) it yet another
  5. & yet another beautiful score by Ennio for C. Paradiso, which is easy you find online
  6. the late & underrated R. Farnsworth earned his oscarshots for Comes a Horseman. starting in Hollywood back in the '30's as a stuntman how about another rarely spoken of Farnsworth was in 1983's The Grey Fox (***1/2)?
  7. Missed that part of Cinema Paradiso do you personally rank i Confess up there among his best?
  8. Speaking of Reni Santoni, he was in Dead Men Don't wear plaid, a lot as well
  9. Speaking of All in the Family Carroll 0'Connor hated Struihers to his dying day
  10. Both Ebert & Siskel slammed The Jerk when is came out, but i personally think it was fun Nobody=-(that i'ver seen yet) cites the fun (***) Dead Men't Don't wear plaid though, TCM once in awhile airst it, but not enough My fav of his though is John Candy's finest work as an actor 1987's Planes, Trains & Automibles
  11. i just looked it up & still no burial details on Carl? I though for certain he'd choose WESTWOOD
  12. all of them are gone already from that show, except of course for Van Dyke, i believe is 95 now
  13. Though SINATRA is my #1 idol, Tracy's still my fav actor ever & like 1960's Ocean's Eleven as good (***) still think Clooney and company's 2000 rehash was good (***)as well & of course Reiner had a role in it, that scene towards the end with all of them gathering to Claire de lune is marvelous his roles as Saul is probably his finest big screen works
  14. personally i'd rank DANTE's INFERNO as Tracy's worst though He hated it & ghis Fox yrs at that studio among his worst time
