   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He received ten offers of football scholarship after graduating from high school. He turned them all down. He was the first choice to play Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972 ), but he turned it down. In his prime, he was almost as famous for his love life as he was for his movie-making, having been connected with a galaxy of female stars and starlets, a who's who list. He lives on famed "Bad Boy Drive" a.k.a. Muholland Drive in Beverly Hills, CA. Nicknamed so because its famed residents are (or were ) bad boy actors Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, and (this actor ). Along with Robert Redford, Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Richard Attenborough and Kevin Costner, he is one of six people to win an Academy Award for "Best Director", though they are mainly known as actors.
Who is he?

   MeiDei  I think they hit gold when they went with Pacino as Michael. I can't imagine who this could be; the love-life scenario makes me think of Warren Beatty who at the time was known for his many romances - did he ever direct a movie & win an Oscar for it ? This has gone unanswered far too long.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  I've been trying to finish up Christmas shopping and my husband is always a challenge when I'm gift-selecting. But, a couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he would like to have an audiobook of the complete Bible. When we first married, we decided to jointly read the Bible all the way through. We got bogged down in Genesis's begats and went no further. But, I found this set (64 discs ) at Barnes and Noble, The NIV Audio Bible, Dramatized. Not just a reading, but different voices, different actors acting it all out. It gets good reviews and I think he will love it.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Just for fun. This was a Carmen Miranda hit and my mother loved to dance around the kitchen singing it. We've all seen the Miranda version. Maybe you can smile at Jerry Lewis?

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  He is one of only three male actors to win three Best Supporting Actor Oscars. He is often referred to as "one of those actors who was born old". Film historians and critics have long regarded him as one of the finest character actors in motion picture history. In all, he appeared in more than 230 film and television roles during a career that spanned nearly five decades. His range was enormous. He could play sophisticated businessmen, con artists, local yokels, cowhands and military officers with apparent equal ease. An accident in 1932 cost him most of his teeth, and he most often was seen in eccentric rural parts, often playing characters much older than his actual age. And he sang, too, having four Top 100 Singles. To later generations, he is probably best known for a long-running role in a big hit television series during the late 50's and early 60's.
