We only caught a fragment of that bit, casting about from channel to channel, hoping to find a feed that didn’t feature a closeup of Lyin’ Ryan every 10 seconds or so. I’d love to know the backstory on that one. …
I still wonder why no clever photoshop artist ever created a photo from Blazing Saddles with Obama’s face replacing Cleavon Little’s and Biden’s replacing Gene Wilders’? Even today it would make a good campaign poster. Obama here tomorrow, the secret service guys are taking over the wife’s office on campus…will Barry be in there or will they use it stash their hookers?
Cleavon Little died young, early 50s. Very under-rated, under appreciated. Versatile – had the title roll in Purlie on broadway. But great comic timing. His reactions to Wilder’s lines made them that much funnier.
We just lost his Purlie co-star last month, Sherman Helmsley.
MK killed in “Young Frankenstein.” Have you ever seen the outtakes from the scene in which she arrives at the castle? Laugh, I thought I’d die. The one Brooks eventually picked is one of my favorite scenes of all time.
Can’t remember the movie, can remember the reviewer, but someone said, about a scene they did together, that Barbara Streisand would make 15 gestures to make a dramatic point, and Kahn would get the same effect with one.
Brooks comes across as crude, rude, and uncouth, but he was married to Anne Bancroft for forty years, so he must have at least been housebroken.
These guys are ALL part of the BIG LIE! Sub-three marathon time sounds good = so “I did that” is the answer. Up is down, right is left, the bigger the lie the better it is for these folks. The stuff they propose to do has been done many, many times with the same terrible results – so how else can they con the morons into voting for them other than the BIG LIE theory?
The crazy thing is, he volunteered the marathon information. All the guy asked was, did you run in high school? And he went off about a sub three marathon as being the best of his many races.
But here’s what’s really scary… 10 bucks said he would’ve passed a lie detector test saying it. It’s one thing to lie to somebody hoping that you get away with it, but I think this guy genuinely believes his shit.
Like saying he was in love with Ayn Rand, then saying it was just a phase, but then handing out her book as Christmas presents to staffers after the so called infatuation wore off
Yeah, like they asked me at my DoE lie detector interview if I bicycled, and I told them of the time I took a month off of work in grad school and beat Bernard Hinault to the top of L’Alp d’Huez. 1986 was such a good year…
