  • I didn't think I'd like Casablanca - who wants to see a film that's all about geometry? - but I enjoyed it. Here's looking at Euclid.

      Also, not a movie, but there is a great episode of the old radio show Suspense , The Man Who Wanted to be Edward G. Robinson, where Robinson plays a man who goes to see Edward G Robinson films and wants to be himÖwonít give anything away but itís a good listen!! fun stuff

          I'd have a few others to add

          A Slight Case of Murder
          The Sea Wolf
          The Red House
          The Night Has A Thousand Eyes (possibly my favorite Robinson film)

          That radio show reminds me of a guest star appearance on the Jack Benny television show by Peter Lorre, who (apparently) has either murdered or restrained Jack somehow and takes over doing a Benny monologue for the audience. It was a howl.

          • I seem to remember watching "Woman In The Window" and enjoying it - until the ending.

              the more watch casablanca the less i like it. first off peter lorre dies right away and it's just so corny its like a musical. it's just so overrated cheesy. I much prefer the big sleep of the popular ones. but to each their own

                    Yes. But saw both versions and the stage play.

                    Mel is a comic genius, right from the start. Maxwell Smart was a brillian creation.

                    There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

                        Max Smart, as played by Don Adams, was one of my favorite TV characters when I was a youngster.

                          Some of the films he did in the early to mid 1950s are quite good. He did one with Paulette Goddard about a small city police captain's 24 hours on his job (Goddard is the owner of an "escort" service), and his problems with several different crimes and matters. The film reunited him with Porter Hall, who had been "the man from Medford, Oregon" in "Double Indemnity - here he was an unwilling murder witness, who was determined to get released and sent home, and whom Robinson keeps finding reasons to rearrest until he cooperates.

                              Thank you.

                              I am putting a personal message here for all. I have been having increasing problems with my right leg and side all week, and am heading for the New York Hospital in Queens (formerly Booth Memorial) today. The reason I am putting this here is that this thread has a lot of readers and can be seen by many. I hope to be back soon, in a better condition.

                              Good luck to you all.
