      Thought "The Castle" was over rated.

      Not a fan.

      Thanks,I'll keep clear of that one.

      Edit. JB HiFi in Oz has Ripper Street 1 & 2 on DVD for $23.98 until Sunday.
      Sorry everyone! I meant Keaton of course!

            Edit. We Aussies have a sense of humour.

            You know that from experience.

            Kindly accept my apology.

            • Don't apologise please, DJA. As a fellow Aussie I know where you're coming from! (I don't know where I got Caton from!)

                  I thought the Castle was a good laugh and a lot of quotes have passed into everyday language.

                  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.

                    Boy some other nationalities have a problem with our sense of humour, became apparent on our cruise.

                        Language I can understand and saw a few funny ones that resulted from that.

                        But certain some Yanks (well they were the main ones that missed some of the humour) have had their funny taken out.

                        Though one dear was thrilled to hear a certain Aussie say "Bugg...d if I know" so said bloke let go with a few "Strewths" and "Bl00.. Rippers" and other such terms, I think it made her cruise.

                            We thrive on that.

                            Also a nation of Ripperologists.....

                            Ripper mate!
                            Gotta go for a slash!

                              My cockatoo joins in conversations and adds that when there is a lull.

                              He has people rolling on the ground laughing at times.

                              So much so,that they max out the required brain chemicals and become unable to laugh for a while.

                                Movies with a Know-it-all, self-satisfied, or pretentious character in them:

                                [Sometimes the character may actually be one who is genuinely a genius and the hero. More frequently it's a self-deluded phony]

                                1) Clifton Webb as "Lynn Belvedere" in "Sitting Pretty", "Mr. Belvedere Goes to College", and "Mr. Belvedere Rings the Bell"
                                2) Monty Wooley as "Sheridan Whiteside" in "The Man Who Came to Dinner"
                                3) Robert Morley as "Andrew Undershaft" in "Major Barbara"
                                4) Leslie Howard as "Professor Henry Higgins" in "Pygmalion"
                                a) Honorable mention: Esme Percy as "Zoltan Karpathy" in "Pygmalion"
                                5) Rex Harrison as "Professor Henry Higgins" in "My Fair Lady"
                                a) Honorable mention: Theodore Bikel as "Zoltan Karpathy" in "My Fair Lady". [R.I.P. Mr. Bikel. I was fortunate to see you twice in your one man show.]
                                7) Fred MacMurray in "The Absent Minded Professor" and "Son of Flubber"
                                6) Sig Ruman as "Colonel Erhardt" in "To Be or Not To Be"

                                Please add any you can think of.
                                "The Man Who Came to Dinner" is one of my favourite films, and surely one of the funniest ever made.

                                I attach a link of Jimmy Durante singing to Monty.
                                I am sure that his laughter at the Schnozz's antics is genuine.
