   StormCnter  1957 movie: Employees of a sleepwear factory are looking for a whopping seven-and-a-half cent an hour increase and they won't take no for an answer. Babe Williams is their feisty employee representative but she may have found her match in shop superintendent Sid Sorokin. When the two get together they wind up discussing a whole lot more than job actions!

   StormCnter  "Sicario", with Emily Blunt, Victor Garber, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, opens today in theaters. Here is the trailer and a bit of a review from Movies. IE

"In all, SICARIO is beautifully shot by Roger Deakins, has a feeling of dread and fear throughout thanks to director Villeneuve and contains some strong and masterful performances. The pacing drags from time to time, but Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score keeps things moving, and it all comes back together in the end."

   StormCnter  As promised, here is a clip from "Risky Business". There is no underwear, Mei, but there is some bleepable language.

   StormCnter  This is in honor of fine character actors whose names we can't always remember.

He was born in 1950. He is often in Michael Mann movies. He may be best known for a continuing role on a television series, but has appeared in about 50 movies. His favorite role was in a 1978 film often discussed here. He is an accomplished pianist. Do you know him?

   StormCnter  1983 Film speech quote: "They're either married or gay. And if they're not gay, they've just broken up with the most wonderful woman in the world, or they've just broken up with a bi*ch who looks exactly like me. They're in transition from a monogamous relationship and they need more space. Or they're tired of space, but they just can't commit. Or they want to commit, but they're afraid to get close. They want to get close, and you don't want to get near them."

   StormCnter  (1906-1979 ) James Cagney has said she was the only woman he ever loved aside from his wife. She divorced a famous film star on the grounds of mental cruelty alleging that "when she objected to the incessant coming and going of guests, he crooned: 'If you don't like it, you can get the hell out.'".Her marriage to a well known theatrical impresario was an emotional and financial disaster. He was a heavy spender who lost hundreds of thousands of dollars gambling (high-stakes bridge was one of his weaknesses ) and went through a controversial bankruptcy during their marriage. While continuing to live the high-life on a huge estate in New York's Westchester County, the irresponsible husband ran through his wife's savings. She playfully called her friend Bette Davis's four ex-husbands "The Four Skins" since they were all gentiles.

   StormCnter  A Daily Double for Rich. I think I would have liked Joan Blondell. You win the sash Rosebud Blondell won in 1926 as Miss Dallas. Her first name really was Rose.
