    We watched "The 39 Steps" the other night. My girl and I didn't make it to the end, our sofa is simply too cozy...

It was excellent, and would make a really good double feature with a more recent film set in that time, An Education - the female lead even looked a bit like Carey Mulligan.

    I agree with your premise. "An Education" was an excellent film that really knocked my socks off when I rented it last years. Kinda funny isn't. England the land of pretense and stiff upper lip... begins to turn out some of the most stark, honest and human drama of the era!

    Quite correct, no chance of that kind of 'friendship' today.

    Great film.
    When John Goodman squishes the frog and Delmar screams because he thinks the frog is Pete...oh MAN. TOO funny!

    Sorry - had to correct my quote of earlier.

    Pete: You miserable little snake! You stole from my kin!
    Ulysses Everett McGill: Who was fixin' to betray us.
    Pete: You didn't know that at the time.
    Ulysses Everett McGill: So I borrowed it until I did know.
    Pete: That don't make no sense!
    Ulysses Everett McGill: Pete, it's a fool that looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

    Excellent film. The famous hot-coffee-in-the-face scene was actually pre-dated by a scene in Raw Deal (1948), where Raymond Burr throws (towards the camera) what appears to be a flaming flambeau pot at a woman who accidentally spills a drink on his shoulder. Says Burr: "Take her away...She should have been more careful."

    I like that movie. My fave scene in it is when Ford's brother in law and some vets come over to protect his child from abduction by the mob after they'd mistakenly killed his wife. They don't recognise Ford at first and he practically gets killed by them before he realizes they're their to protect his little girl. I personally would've been proud to see those mobsters try and tackle battle hardened combat vets protecting a child. As one vet said.... "I've stormed places those punks wouldn't go without a tank!"

    Amen.
