   HopeandGlory  Jeremy Irons.

   StormCnter  George Clooney auditioned five times for Ridley Scott for the young stud part.

The original script writer wanted Holly Hunter and Frances McDormand for the two top female roles.

A total of five identical 1966 Thunderbird convertibles were used throughout the shoot: one "star car", one camera car, one back-up car, and two stunt cars.

With the light starting to fail, and a public holiday looming, (the director ) had roughly forty-five minutes to get the final scene just right.

Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep really wanted to make this movie, but eventually passed on it. Michelle Pfeiffer and Jodie Foster were signed for the top female roles, but contractual conflicts forced them to drop out.

Twenty-four police cars and three helicopters were utilized for the film's climax.

Easy one for a Friday afternoon. Dan you name this film?

   Richdet  This is disturbing. I had no idea how badly "over the cliff" this movie could have gone with bad casting.

Holly Hunter, McDormand, My Michelle -- I can see them, especially Michelle who can do no wrong, but just as well they didn't make the cut.

Jodie Foster, Goldie Hawn -- with all respect to these two, probably not a good idea.

Streep? Never never never never never. Never!

Clooney? Ditto.

I tremble to think what "Thelma and Louise" would be if Streep and Clooney were cast.

Thanks to the movie gods (and Ridley Scott ) that instead we got Sarandon, Geena Davis and Brad Pitt. A good lesson in how casting is key in some projects.

   MeiDei  I remember hearing this one [#1] in the past few weeks, but I sure don't remember which movie it's from or even who said it. Another "of course" once the answer is known. ; )

   Richdet  You want "of course"? I got it. (I think. ) The "Hunger Games" girl. I read the books, and saw the first movie, I think it comes from that trilogy.

Originally I was thinking "Gladiator" for #1. Could be #3?
Love "Gladiator" so I like an excuse to mention it.

The "one man wolfpack." Been searching my inner bro for this one, but, sadly, no luck. I come up short on the bro meter.

   Tulsa  'Looks' like James Caan and Tuesday Weld and have no idea why I know either. Only guess is reading magazine covers in the grocery store line waiting to check out a loooong time ago.
Yesterday at 17:29 EST .

   StormCnter  You're right, Tulsa. The title is "Thief", and was writer/producer/director Michael Mann's feature film debut in 1981. This film is considered a classic of the noir genre.

Easy money lures an American border patrol officer into his partner's sideline of smuggling illegals into Texas. Charlie Smith barely scrapes by on his low salary, but his hectoring wife, Marcy, is anxious to move up in the world, so he takes a new position as a border patrol agent alongside the hair-trigger Cat. Soon, Charlie is a reluctant party to Cat's smuggling and other petty criminal actions, but when the corrupt agent sets his avaricious sights on a poor illegal immigrant and her newborn baby, Charlie's moral code returns.
