Thanks for sharing that Mank family tradition. What was your grandfather's famous line at a fancy Hollwyood dinner party after he barfed all over the table? "Don't worry, the white wine came up with fish."

Dude, you spend more time at the Newark Airport than anyone I've ever known. Seriously, they should name a food court or a runway after you.

Don't forget that our beloved "Bullitt" makes no sense. Two professional hit men take out a mobster in a sleazy hotel room, then go outside, sit in their car and wait for an ambulance to make sure he's dead? Turns out he's not so it's on to the hospital to try again? Idiocy.

I thought it was extremely mediocre. Can't recommend to anyone.

Very impressive. You now have class and style. Ix-nay on the Charles Dickens. Think Mrs. Parker, got it?

Hard to believe it's been that long. I feel as if he's still here. I still re-read his Parker books from start to finish every two years. The urge strikes me without fail.

Very few of them do, sad to say. Ron Howard's had an exceptional adult life but so few child performers know how to deal with the real world when the cameras stop rolling.

When i wrote for Kate and Allie I went in the men's room before a taping and saw the little boy who was guesting as Chip's friend sobbing and vomiting with fright and his stage father shaking him and screaming at him to "act like a man." Closest I've ever come to slugging a guy.

One of those magical films that seems to grow better every time you see it. Harvey oozes with self-loathing. Sinatra's gives his best performance. Also one of the only two scores by the great David Amram.

I was there with my dad. The stadium was so silent with tension in the ninth inning you could hear him gasping for breath with every pitch. Most amazing game I've ever been to. And Vin Scully's call on KFI was epic. He didn't say a word. Just let the crowd tell it.

Yeah, no need to change clothes, dude. Just throw on a pair of flip flops and you'll be good to go.

Remember when Meat Loaf threw the great New York Times into a total tizzy because people were LAUGHING at them for continually calling him Mr. Loaf, as per their bedrock style. Major soul searching ensued, followed by a tectonic cultural shift. One of his great achievements.

Get yourself a freaking Waterman, will you? Show some style and class. Attract the attention of gifted, discerning male authors.

It's true, there was a generation of actors like Murray Hamilton and Robert Webber who you don't see modern-day versions of.
