Pilot with fake license arrested, removed from plane in Amsterdam. Great Good film,* by the way.

I really enjoyed that film myself. I sort of get a kick out of fast-footed, lighthearted con artist stories. Like The Sting. Plus, the story ended happily for the guy in life, with his anti-con consultancy. Gotta love it.
GREAT film? It was ok. Your skills as a film critic are on par with your writing and real estate skills. Mediocre at best. And I am being kind. You want some GREAT movies? And you tell me your movie is in the same class as these:
The Godfather (I & II)
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
National Velvet (Not really a great flick, but the 5 Filly’s would kill me if I didn’t pick it) Do you think Elizabeth Taylor ate like a horse after this because she was in this flick? Just wondering. She really was a hottie before she chubbed up into an Orca.
The Great Escape – CLASSIC!!
Behind The Green Door (Marilyn!! Home town vote!)
Saving Private Ryan
Schindlers List – I actually never saw it. But since I learned we are letting Jews move in, I figured I would put it down and try and meet some of them.
The Graduate – CLASSIC!!
I could go on, but I wont. Is Catch Me If You Can in this league Dude? Even remotely? Well is it, PUNK!!(Dirty Harry!!)
i stand corrected
You might like this story, Walt – my mom, daughter of two great silent film stars and a beautiful girl, was cast as the lead in a movie just before WW II broke out. Production was suspended and after the war they decided she was then too old for the part and they gave it to Elizabeth Taylor – movie was National Velvet, of course.
If you don’t have Casablanca on your great list, you don’t know Shindler from Shinola (spelling corrected, thanks to reader- blogging and reader feedback is a constant education!)
Weasel Boy –
As usual, you miss the point. I rattled off, off the top of my head, some movies that are great. To show you the error of your ways. But I don’t fault you. You boiler room real estate for a living. A double wide on a 50″x 100″ foot lot in swamp land is a “Grand Estate” surrounded by “majestic lakes”. You know no better.
Cool story on your Mom. But you are lucky she didn’t get it. She could have turned into “Mommie Dearest” and beat the snot out of you with wire hangers. She probably did anyway, but she did it because you deserved it, and not because she was a washed up movie star.
Casablanca is a classic and would make my top ten. So would Tin Men. Ever see that one? Reminds me of you!!
The product is Shinola. I actually came across a can of the brown stuff at the Round Hill Country Store, still selling for 39 cents. Then it dawned on me why it’s often mistaken for the other brown stuff.
