Liking this more and more. I swear, there's already enough here to sell to that clown at Sony who thinks Norman Lear was responsible for "The Princess Bride."

Works for me. His wife just left him because he's a disorganized dreamer whose life is going nowhere. She's fleeing a husband who's a work obsessed Amazon exec.

Absolutely. The cab was already occupied by a woman who was on her way to the airport to fly to Venice. Just have to figure out why he had his passport on him. Hmm....

He was a great performer. I will never forget the pain on his face as he struggled to do the right thing in "Kiss of Death."

You have my sympathy. My sister was allergic to cats so I had to wait until I went away to college to discover I can’t live without them.

I loved The Avengers, The Prisoner and The Fugitive.

Oh, dear, you're not a cat person. As any cat person will attest you have not, repeat not, seen the last of him. Just submit. He is a higher power.

What a terrific movie that was,and one of his best performances, though it gets very little attention.

Their flow-through defense is breathtakingly awful. There's nothing Jones can do about that unless he's also good at blitzing the other team's QB.

I moved to New York in 1974 and I don't remember both teams being so hopelessly awful THIS early. We have no pro football to look forward to this year after only two games. It's already over.

Fnished re-reading Patricia Bosworth's biography of Montgomery Clift. What a sad tale. He was so amazingly gifted and yet so messed up. The only measure of his greatness that he left behind are A PLACE IN THE SUN, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY and the phone booth scene in THE MISFITS.

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra is obviously an idiot. THE PRINCESS BRIDE was my friend and mentor Bill Goldman's labor of love, brilliantly directed by Rob Reiner. Norman Lear?! Well, he did cast Rob in ALL IN THE FAMILY but that's a bit of a reach, isn't it?

Great movie indeed but it was George Segal who played the lead in it, not Holden.

As great as he was in Sunset Boulevard he was even better in Stalag 17. Not to mention Bridge on the River Kwai.

Plus amazing Graham Greene script and performances by Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Trevor Howard and Valli. For my money one of the ten best English language films ever made. I'm getting mad and madder at Netflix.

Mine, too. It packs a real punch. BREAKER MORANT, another fave, always takes me back to it.

He returned to that theme many times in his writing. There was a tincture of nostalgia that I always loved about his work.

Truly! And one of the best anti-war films, too. Plus Timothy Carey, a hugely underappreciated actor.

Watched PATHS OF GLORY yet again the other night and it never fails -- three days later I'm still thinking about Kubrick's amazing camera work as Douglas is barging his way through those narrow trenches with the artillery fire raining down and bodies falling. THAT's a movie.
