Everyone should go out tonight and get a vodka martini, shaken not stirred.
She let you go east of the river?Back in 1975, they re-released "Thunderball" and "Dr. No" as a double feature. I spent a few days over winter break at a good friend's house. I was 12, my buddy was 13. Our parents were old friends. My friend's mom let us go see the double feature at the new Showcase Cinema's in E. Hartford. I just remember my mom being pissed at her friend for letting us go. My mom felt there was "inappropriate material" in those movies for an impressionable twelve year old. Well, I was definitely impressed. ;-)
Just for complete disclosure before anyone blasts me for the comment, I grew up in East Hartford. I was just kidding with Alex because I knew he grew up in West Hartford.LOL .... I told you years ago, E. Htfd was like a second home to me while growing up thanks to our close friends.
It was a nice change of pace from West Hartford.
He just made that film. Astonishing voice and actor. Just saw pictures of the house he once owned on the French Riviera. Whoa. One time I’m in Vancouver in the summer by this marina and there‘s a gigantic yacht moored there. It had a helicopter on it. It was his, I guess he would go there, why bother with hotels? He lived like the man who WAS king, great movie.Sad he was an amazing actor and person. Was just watching that movie he looked pretty old then and played the role of Indiana's father very well, despite being just 12 years older then Harrison Ford. His arguments with Indiana were the best. Who else could come up with a novel idea to scare away a flock of birds to crash a Nazi plane, or pissing off Indiana enough to steal a gun and shoot up Nazis. He was the brains to Indiana getting the holy grail, having the diary and his old man knowledge.
