"Shot in the Dark". Peter Sellars' subtle brand of humor gets me every time.

If laughter is the best medicine, I must now be over medicated.

My favorite oldie has to be Bringing up Baby (1938)

I keep an oldie queued up on one or more of my players all the time.....when I start nodding off watching my "important" stuff,I switch over to the oldie.....works as well as any anesthesiologist to deliver me peacefully to Morpheus.......I`m currently well into The Abominable Snowman (1957) and Spawn of the North (1938).......

bringing up baby.1938
the abominable snowman.1957
spawn of the north 1938

I'm into racing movies. Ones that I rewatched recently are Grand Prix from 1966 and Le Mans from 1971.

One of my top all-time favorite classic films is "Sunset Boulevard" (Paramount, 1950) which features a 1929 Isotta-Fraschini.  In the film, Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) informs Joe Gillis (William Holden) that the car was all hand built and cost her $28,000, which in today's dollars is over $400,000.  The vehicle was driven by Norma's butler and former husband Max Von Meyerling (Erich von Stroheim).  Interesting factoid is that von Stroheim didn't know how to drive.

I`m always dumbstruck when a fella takes a dame out to a "club" .......each couple gets a four-top fully laid out with crystal and linen....as they make with the small talk they are serenaded by a massive orchestra and usually there`s hotsy totsy headliner/singer in the wings !!

What in the WORLD would the cover charge be in a joint like that ?????
