11-18-2003, 10:48 AM
Becket....Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole..both getting nominated...a "buddy" movie
The Lion in Winter...Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Lector's ancestor
Hud, and the Sequel "The Hudsucker Proxy" Who can forget the line where Paul Newman says to Tim Robbins "What we have here is a failure to communicate"....which reminds me of the problem between Henry II and Thomas Becket..or was that ex-communicate?
And my all time favorite "Terror in Tiny Town" big-time movie that works well on the small screen.

11-18-2003, 11:16 AM

1. Braveheart - love the story, it's not all true, but it still rocks

2. Coal Miner's Daughter - Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones, WOW!! Plus, I love that kind of country music, the old fashioned kind. Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. Sweet Dreams....

3. Bringing Up Baby with Kate Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart. I've always wanted a pet tiger.

4. The Philadelphia Story -- I've lived there. The characters were real back then, too superficial nowadays. Yechhh!!!

5.The Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood - It's for real chick flick for me.

1. Age of Innocence
2. Scent of a Woman
3. Ironweed
4. The Bostonian

I am just listing Movies I saw made in Troy, there are a few more but I have forgotten the Titles. The Local Press calls Troy Hollywood on the Hudson.

Movie makers love Emma Williard School, where Jane Fonda graduated high school [the same year I graduated school.]Scent of a Women and the last movie that starred the actor. Who impersonated the President of the United States and ended up with his wife Sigourney Weaver. His name and the movies escapes me, I have enough trouble remembering the name Mosconi.####

Barbara
11-22-2003, 12:39 PM
The actor's name is Kevin Klein and the movie was "Dave".

I loved that movie!! I thought the shower scene was hilarious!! And the mechanical hands scene - "I was caught a fish thiiiiis biiiig."

Barbara~~~and then they're all dancing to "Louie Louie"

Gayle the Age of Innocence took almost two years after it was finished before it was released. Martin Scorsee spent just about every night at LaPorta Italian Restaurant. He fell in love with their cooking and ambience.

They tied up one street for close to a week with horse drawn carriages and people walking and it was in the movie for 10 seconds.

An RPI fraternity was used for an interior shot. They spent nearly 100,000 fixing it up for the scene. Its woodwork is amazing. The first three floors walls are all fancied woodwork. The fourth floor is normal, that was the servants floor. I know because I installed a pool table up there many years ago. The frat is valued in excess of 10,000,000. ####

Great thread, so much diversity, thought it was going to be all gangsters from some of the early posts but it got very interesting after a while. Behind the Green Door?, people are showing their age with that one, not exactly Fox Network material. My favorites,
Anything Kubric, Clockwork, Full Metal Jacket, 2001, the Shining, Strangelove, Lolita, Paths of Glory, anything. After that
Once Upon a Time in the West
Goodfellas
Hombre
Hustler
High Plains Drifter
Pulp Fiction (loved the music)
Wild Bunch
Rebel Without a Cause (showing my age now)
First Blood (just the first one mind you, JUST the first one)
