  1. Dramatic: Carl Weathers next: played a lot of cops
  2. LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003) next: hot buttered rum
  3. Franchot Tone, who in 1951 was beaten comatose by Tom Neal in a fight over the affections of Barbara Payton. "Franchot, in grave condition, was rushed to the nearby California Lutheran Hospital. Reporters who caught wind of the beating and hurried to the hospital waiting room were told that there was concern about blood clots and strokes and that this was essentially a “death watch.”The beating left Franchot with a shattered cheekbone, fractured upper jaw, broken nose, and concussion. His face was so damaged that the doctors performed emergency plastic surgery and warned that his face mig
  4. More celebrities (almost classic era) that I recall serving at The Russian Tea Room... A few that I annoyed: Jennifer Grey came in on a date with Johnny Depp about 1990. Every food course or beverage she ordered was very minimal.

  5. THE THREE AMIGOS (1986) next: Bushmill's Irish Whisky

  8. SEX IN THE CITY (TV), Kim Catrall's Mimosa can be seen at 0:00:12 next: a barrel of Malmsey
  9. Tom, I love SAHARA. For me the most enduring take-aways are the sympathetic portrayals of Naish as the Italian prisoner, Rex Ingram as the Sudanese soldier, and Louis Mercier as the Free French fighter. The scene between Bruce Bennett and Rex Ingram, where they clearly accept each other as equals, was quite progressive in its time. I wonder how it was received by the critics and public.
