  1. Don't follow too close.  I feel gassy!  ;) 


  2. @Mr. Gorman Really? 😃 Oh, wow - that’s awesome. 😄 Like I said, pros. 🤩 To be able to match talents with Olivier, of all people, and be like, “Sure. I can play whatever.”…Can you imagine? 🤩 Now I really can’t help but wonder what it would’ve been like had they gone the other way. What started me down that line was thinking back on the moments where Olivier’s character (I don’t remember which is Halpern and which is Johnson ☺️) gets all steamed and upset. I thought, “Oh, yeah. That was definitely meant for Gleason.” 😃
  3. @Bethluvsfilms Interesting! 😃 I flipped for Titanic when it came out. (Like many, many pre-teen girls, I was crazy about Leo. ☺️…Just thinking of him at that staircase and in that tux still makes me go all 😍😍 😍!!!) I’ve seen E.T. and Schindler’s List, too. Very memorable experiences.
  4. @David Proulx You’re not the only one - I can’t take my eyes off him either. 🤩 He’s so magnetic, yet so natural when he’s doing drama. It’s the exact opposite of his loud, brassy comedic style (which I don’t mean to disparage, as I find it very funny and brilliant in its own right - love The Honeymooners!). His dramatic acting is the epitome of subtle. And so much happens when he’s not saying a word. You really have to watch his face. Part of the magic of his performance in Requiem for a Heavyweight is that his silent moments belie the falsely confident, bullying vibrato he speaks with. W
  5. @unwatchable Interesting…I’ve never seen it before. Thanks. 🙂
  6. @Dargo I didn’t know that! 😲 How unfortunate for everybody - Bob included. I have Hell is for Heroes on DVD, but I’ve only watched it once. I need to revisit it. From what I can remember, I found it very disjointed - and Newhart and the clever way they worked in his telephone routine was the only part I actually enjoyed. (Wasn’t it supposed to be fake conversations to throw off the enemy or something?…I love how he’s so nervous about it at first, then later on he’s leaning back in chair - all chill, like, “I do this all the time. No big deal.” ☺️)
  7. @Sepiatone Ah - I just mentioned in my reply to @ElCid that “The Driving Instructor” is my favorite! 😃 This was so neat to see! I LOVE when he says, “Let me get a chair”, and someone whispers, “He’s going to do ‘The Driving Instructor’.” They know immediately. 🥰 Also, someone nearby had a GREAT laugh. (I think it may be the guy filming?) And inducted into The Library of Congress - wow! 😃
  8. @ElCid I enjoy his stand-up, too. 😊 I’ve had his Something Like This collection for a long time - and only recently realized that it doesn’t include EVERY routine (duh! ☺️). So, I’m now working my way through the individual albums on Apple Music. Of all that I’ve heard so far, I think my favorite is still “The Driving Instructor”.
  9. @Mr. Gorman Oh, my goodness - that was so funny! 😄 A very slow build-up - but the more things go wrong, the funnier it gets. ☺️ And the timing couldn’t be better. I just finished listening to his Stars in the House interview / reunion with the remaining TBNS and Newhart cast and crew last night - and they talked about this episode! I believe Julia Duffy said it was one of her favorites. Between what each of them remembered, they described it in detail - Bob even remembered the “Up the Amazon” title. ☺️ She said, for her, it was a toss-up between this episode and “the world’s smallest hors
  10. @NipkowDisc I can’t tell if you’re joking. Also, what movie is that shot from?
  11. @David Proulx Awww…What a perfect description of him! 🥰 In his TV shows, he was the epitome of the “only sane man” as well. Yes, he was even still doing stand-up until the pandemic! He must really love it. Actually, before watching some recent interviews, I’d wondered if not having that outlet for so long would be detrimental to his health - but he still seems to be doing well. 😊
  12. @Bethluvsfilms Hi! 😊 I’ve seen a few from your list (The Sound of Music, All About Eve, Casablanca), all of which I enjoy very much. I’ll keep an eye out for the rest…The Roaring Twenties is in my DVR, but I haven’t watched it yet. I want to, though - because of the Carol Burnett Show connection. Have you seen her parody sketch, The Boring Twenties (starring Carol, Harvey, Steve Lawrence, and Sally Struthers)? It’s one of my favorites! 🥰 There is one film on your list that I distinctly did not enjoy when I saw it…Funny story about my experience with Psycho: I was 8 years old, and my mom a
  13. @David Proulx Hey! 😃 I’m glad you enjoyed it! 😊 Those are all good points as to why it would be true…I tend to be skeptical of dramatized “true stories” anyway, so maybe some natural bias played into my opinion. I had no doubt the core of it was real - I just thought the details were likely embellished to make it a TV-quality story. But my skepticism prompted me to research, which has been fun and enlightening. I have a greater respect and appreciation for the Wynns, Nelson, and Serling myself now - and Jack Palance, whose role was left out of Funny Suit. He noticed what was going on (ho
  14. @LuckyDan 😄 Ah, yes - how could I forget Major Major? Actually, I have seen Catch-22 once (during my “discovering Bob Newhart” deep-dive phase ☺️), and between Charles Grodin’s storyline and the reveal about the flashback, I think I mentally blocked it. 🙈 But that was several years ago. I’d probably appreciate it much more now, especially since I know what I’m in for. I certainly enjoyed that clip! 😆 I had to watch twice to catch all the portraits. I love the subtle change in his voice and personality, too. The little dictator. ☺️ So funny. (And of course, can’t forget that mound of p
