  4. & FRANK SINATRA (l9l5-98) Sicilian & was 5'8 & 1/2 (& my choices as THE CHAIRMAN'S ESSENTIAL MOTION PICTURES) (out of 58)> 1. SOME CAME RUNNING (l958) (M-G-M) (Many others like this as his best of his 58, including Martin Scorsese, who also lists this among his overall favourite's of all-time) 2. *FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (l953) (Columbia Pictures) (swept 8 GOLDEN BOYS' including his for s. actor as Maggio (TRIVIA: Originally Columbia Mogul Harry Cohn wanted Aldo Ray as Robert E.

THE UNTOUCHABLES (l987) (& grossed $76 million domestically) 2. THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING (l975) (deserved a l;ot more Oscar Love than it got & don't ever forget DANNY ^& PEACHY) 3.

  8. This is something others may agree & or enjoy with We went to THE UNTOUCHABLES (June of 1987) & typically there were several punks in the audience & w3ere disgustingly outrageously obnoxious during the show, until my mother got up & BELLOWED TO THEM IN WORDS I CAN'T WRITE HERE & of course they yelled disgusting things right back at my mum, she got them thrown out-(ABOUT 7 TO 8 OF THESE SCUM WERE ALL & IMMEDIATELY THROWN 0UT OF THIS THEATRE, WE WERE FRIENDS W/IT'S MGR AS WELL I CAN EVEN NAME THE EXACT SCENE IN WHICH THIS HAPPENED & EVERYTIME I'VE REWATCH
  9. I never really pd that much attention-(though like him as A #1 BOND) until THE UNTOUCHABLES & the way the AMPAS ALMOST IGNORED THIS GRANDLY ENTERTAINING CRIME-DRAMA WAS A DISGRACE, THOUGH I KNEW THETY WOULD BACK THEMN IT'S onY NODS WERE FOR HIM, SCORE-(Morricone)-( & DESE5RVED TO WIN), cOSTUMES & ART DIRECTION THAT WAS THE YR OF *THE LAST EMPEROR THOUGH GOING 9 FOR 9 THE UNTOUACHABLES $76M & DE NIRO WASAN0THER SNUB AS AL CAPONE-(BEST YET ON THE SCREEN) THE LATE BOB HOSKINS WAS GONNA PLAY CAPONE, UNTUIL THEY GOT BOBBY DE FOR IT (My Alternate Oscars for '
  10. THEE BIG QUESTION: Who has all of them up to this date yet???
  11. 1979 at the age of 15 or so was the year that put the hook in me for the first time & I became 100% not only a movie lover, but a collector as well But first i wanted to see why so many including the likes of tv hosts MIKE DOUGLAS, MERV GRIFFIN & others would cal;l KANE the greatest & ALWAYS refer to SPENCE as THE GREAT SPENCER TRACY
  12. Who also preferred THE MUNSTERS to THE ADDAM'S FAMILY?
  13. 1979 Oscar victor for Best Score LITTLE ROMANCE was among RON HOWARD'S top flix for that great cinematic year!
  14. CHAPLIN'S CITY LIGHTS is almost a tie to his 1936 MODERN TIMES &both must rank among HOLLYWOODS TOP TEN BEST FILMS EVER MADE YET! & of course his peers at the ACADEMY snubbed both, theory is because CHARLIE didn't switch to full sound yet?
  15. thanx are you also another cinephile/movie collector & if so how long???
  16. Try to always go to a new film on my birthday & also even on Christmas, where it's usually packed!
  17. Also to TOPBILLED, if ok whereabouts in this country do you live currently & do you go to new releases at a theatre Plan to go & see *KEVIN COSTNER, DIANE LANE & ELLEN BARKIN'S LET HIM GO tomorrow reviews are pretty strong for it & as you know COSTNER is a Western fan in his real life & films> SILVERADO, *DANCES WITH WOLVES, WYATT EARP, OPEN RANGE-(nearly great Western ( a strong ***1/2) & grossed 60m.) but not as well known as his others & with one of cinemas greatest living actors in ROBERT DUVALL (l93l-)
