Good call. Steve McQueen at his best. Not a personal choice for all-time favorite, but a great choice nevertheless!

I seems like there was more room for character actors and even actresses in the older movies. Today everyone, even most of the minor characters, need to be fairly good looking.

Marie Dressler was so much fun.

And then there was Edna May Oliver. OMG. She had this great horse face, ugly as sin, but she made a lot of money with her off kilter looks. Character actors had all the good lines too, usually snide and honest. Ol' Edna May, what a face!




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I don't think it's entirely dead. My favorite modern example is Judi Dench, who is fantastic in everything she does, but was especially glorious as Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love.

I'll have to check that out. Although... when I see her, I think of Jean Pargetter from "As Time Goes By."

Oh, man, if you haven't seen Shakespeare in Love, make that your next rental (or download). It might not be quite as funny to people who aren't from a theatre background, since there are quite a few esoteric jokes in the script, but it's a great movie. Gwyneth Paltrow, Joseph Fiennes, and Geoffrey Rush are also particularly excellent in that film.

That film was banned stateside for a long time.
