   Gram77  Pretty sure we are looking at the 3 Stooges. I don't think I've ever known their real names.

   MeiDei  Yes indeed! A little background:
The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy team active from 1922 until 1970, best known for their 190 short subject films by Columbia Pictures that have been regularly airing on television since 1958. Their hallmark was physical farce and slapstick. In films, the stooges were commonly known by their actual first names. There were a total of six stooges over the act's run: Moe Howard and Larry Fine were mainstays throughout the ensemble's nearly fifty-year run and the pivotal "third Stooge" was played by Shemp Howard, Curly Howard, Joe Besser, and Curly Joe DeRita.

It is the fall of 1957. The Whitakers, the very picture of a suburban family, make their home in Hartford, Connecticut. Their daily existences are characterized by carefully observed family etiquette, social events, and an overall desire to keep up with the Joneses. Cathy Whitaker is the homemaker, wife and mother. Frank Whitaker is the breadwinner, husband and father. Together they have the perfect '50s life: healthy kids and social prominence. Then one night, Cathy discovers her husband's secret life and her tidy, insular world starts spinning out of control

Just as a successful cocaine dealer, who has earned a respected place among England's Mafia elite, eyes an early retirement from the business, big boss Jimmy Price hands down a tough assignment: find Charlotte Ryder, the missing rich princess daughter of Jimmy's old pal Edward, a powerful construction business player and gossip papers socialite. Complicating matters are two million pounds' worth of Grade A ecstasy, a brutal neo-Nazi sect and a whole series of double crossings.

   MeiDei  Hope isn't here to pick off the British actors ... will someone else step up?
Yesterday at 11:25 EST .


   StormCnter  I don't know the film, but that is clearly Daniel Craig in the forefront.
Yesterday at 11:35 EST .


   MeiDei  Yes it is! "Layer Cake" is the film title - along with Daniel Craig are: Colm Meaney (R ), Kenneth Cranham, George Harris, Jamie Foreman, Sienna Miller (in white ), Michael Gambon (L ).
You get to test all the layer cakes on the next "The Best British Bake Off" - color me green with envy. ; )

A minor-league hockey team makes sports history when its members decide to spruce up the team's image by playing dirty.

   Richdet  "Slap Shot" with Paul Newman. I remember enjoying this one when it first came out. That could be Michael Ontkean on the left, who was more of a tv show star, eventually a lead on "Twin Peaks." Not totally sure, but he looks familiar to me.

   MeiDei  You answered all and more - very well done!

NYPD Detectives Danson and P.K. are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos - other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit Detectives Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz. You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. Every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into New York City's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

This is a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Reporter Gary Webb becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign after he exposes the CIA's role in importing vast amounts of cocaine. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. - and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.
