  1. Madame Spivy (Bertha Levine) as Ma Greeny in Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962).
  2. As a certified Crazy Cat Person (TM), this character is what I aspire to be.
  3. He was a co-founder of Sons of the Desert, the Laurel and Hardy fan club.
  4. Mel Brooks claims that he invented the cell phone via the shoe phone from Get Smart. Anyway, David Sarnoff described a cellphone in 1950, in "Mid-Century: Half Way to Where?" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0292590/fullcredits/?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm Tesla may have described it earlier, in 1926: https://www.truthorfiction.com/did-nikola-tesla-describe-mobile-phones-in-1926/
  5. But seriously folks, THIS is the best fight scene in movie history.
  6. The hospital scene in All That Jazz, when Bob Fosse (Roy Scheider) is "pronounced" healthy by a chain-smoking, coughing, wheezing cardiologist (Michael Tolan) who can barely stand up or speak.
  7. A great example of this is from A Hard Day's Night, when George Harrison calls something "grotty". He's then asked to explain what "grotty" means and he says "grotesque." So, all sorts of people in the US - and even in Britain - thought for years that "grotty" was a well-established Liverpool expression. Except that, in reality, as explained on the Criterion DVD extras, screenwriter Alun Owen deliberately thought up a brand new catch expression.
  8. Barbara Feldon (99) said this ("Be careful. Some of it's getting in your mouth") to Don Adams (Maxwell Smart) in an episode of Get Smart! Mel Brooks stole a joke from a western? I can't imagine.
