Hey, thanks for the kind words. The Bantam sales force hated the title because it was long and they just called it "FSF." Doesn't have quite the same ring, does it?

ATTN: Sale shoppers: The ebook version of one of my favorite '90s Hoagy novels, THE GIRL WHO RAN OFF WITH DADDY, is on sale today in all formats for $1.99. And my Edgar winner, THE MAN WHO WOULD BE F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, is still on sale for $2.99. Great chance to catch up!

I hate the feel-good happy ending that they tacked on to "L.A. Confidential," which almost ruined what is otherwise a classic film.

I thought "My So Called Life" with Clare Danes was a very mature show on the subject.

Not going to happen. All the planets and stars are in alignment for Sam Elliott to win BSA as a sentimental lifetime achievement award.

I missed the memo. When did Don Jr.'s public pronouncements on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness suddenly become topics worthy of media coverage? And that beard's a lousy disguise. I can still tell it's him.

She wasn't a fan of "Parrish?" Wow. Kazan wrote in his memoir that the studio wanted HIM for the lead in "Splendor in the Grass" opposite Natalie Wood. Kazan refused and instead cast an unknown named Warren Beatty in his first film role.

An entire generation of men tried the lighting two cigarettes thing but the only man on the planet who could pull it off with effortless grace was the peerless Paul Henreid.

I can watch "The Prisoner of Zenda" or "Random Harvest" any day of the week. No one played a man of honor -- what a quaint phrase -- as well as he did.

Great movie, great Freddie Raphael script. For me, Finney will always be the iconic angry young man of Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, which ushered in the golden era of dark early '60s British dramas like The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and The Sporting LIfe.

His performance in "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" was groundbreaking. He was an iconic "angry young man." And a giant.

Words to live by. I also like Dalton's credo: "Pain don't hurt."

You've gone up even higher in my estimation, Joe, and I didn't think that was possible!

One of the greatest bad movies of all time. I never get tired of watching it.

I had a serious crush on her when I was 12.
