    This has nothing to do with the theme this week but it is movie related. On Turner Classic Movies channel on Tuesday, they are airing Babette’s Feast. The time will vary because we are a big country but check your listings. Won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film and has some amazing ‘religious’ tie ins. Just wanted to mention this because sometimes these types of movies just are not available to see in smaller markets. If you watch it (or PVR it and watch it later) mention it in your write up.

    So our choices this week are Henry Fonda as a cold blooded killer, Fred Mac Murray as a fornicating boss and “a failure to communicate”.
    How the West Was Won was a spaghetti western by Leone that was hard to watch. The story moved along and we geta young Charles Bronson. Violent and not as satisfying as the Leone/Eastwood movies.
    The Apartment gives you good actors in a movie that I’m amazed hasn’t been remade numerous times with it getting a more and more graphic rating. You have a meek employee who allows others to use his apartment for affairs.
    Cool Hand Luke is a classic movie about a man against the system. Newman’s smile/smirk lets you know that the wheels are turning. You have a great scene with hard boiled eggs (I wonder how many takes they had to do for this sequence?) If I was to watch 2 prison movies to anyone it would be this one and Stalag 13. Sorry but I can’r rec Shawshank Redemption without numerous warnings about content. (I know it won it’s week and I even enjoyed it, but it is brutal) So this is my pick.

    Best Actor- Paul Newman
    Best Actress- Shirley MacLane

  3. I have to go with Cool Hand Luke. I think because it was referred to a couple times in Gilmore Girls.

    “It looks like he’s got himself a cool Hand.” Pay attention to all the Christ references.
