   Gram77  On the right is Jim Carey, the left Andy Kauffman. I didn't see the movie because I'm not fond of either guy. Sorry.

   MeiDei  Born on May 30, 1899 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. American actress, playwright and humorist with a penchant for acerbic wit. Known for The Uninvited ('44 ), The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing ('55 ) and The Pleasure of His Company ('61 ). She was married to Alden Sanford Blodget. She died on July 9, 1979 in New York City. During the 1920's and 30's, she became famous for her monodramas and for her humorous writings, published in various magazines, including The New Yorker. She also penned essays and self-deprecating anecdotes later collated in book form as "Nuts in May". Among her many laudable successes as an actress were her performances in "Lady Windermere's Fan" in 1946, and in "The Pleasure of His Company" on Broadway, in 1958. After the latter, she essentially retired from the stage.

   StormCnter  Ok, who else has read "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay"? I read it as a kid when nothing else on my parents' book shelves looked interesting. I loved it, although I was probably too young to really "get" some of the stories.

   Susannah  I read "Our Hearts" when I was about eleven. I don't think I "got" the Leda and the Swan thing either--at the time.

A lovely book, but she'd have to change the title if she were writing now: "Our Hearts Were Young and, Like, Totally Tripping."

   StormCnter  This quiz builds a bit on one just down the page. The 1990 film is described as "both a commercial and critical failure after being shelved for more than a year with extensive revisions." And, "inspires dazed disbelief that professional film makers could have made such an amateurish movie... Among the other wasted talents is the director, Joyce Chopra, who once made the exquisite, troubling little film Smooth Talk and seems to have lost her judgment here."
Three life-long friends work the bars in 1980's Atlantic City performing the songs of the 60's girl groups in this self-indulgent comedy.

   Gram77  Can't get the gal on the left, but the center one just might be Diane Keaton and perhaps the one on the right may be Carol Kane. I doubt I hit on anything but it was worth a try.

   MeiDei  2011 British-German-French psychological thriller. film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. A man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife ), believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is....

   StormCnter  She sure is. Iacta earns Latka's services for his next automobile problem. While waiting in the garage, try not to comment on the appetizing smell of the lunch Simka packed for him.

   MeiDei  The role I remember him most was in The Phantom of The Opera - as a little kid - it gave me nightmares. Refused to see PotO for years after but enjoyed the Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossem musical version.

   StormCnter  Mr. Rains was poufing his hair before anyone else thought of it. I liked this photo. Mei wins. This audio clip will soothe any lingering nightmares, Mei. Claude Rains recites Richard Strauss's setting for narrator and piano of Tennyson's poem Enoch Arden, with the piano solos performed by Glenn Gould.

   StormCnter  1993 film speech quote: "H**l, I've seen too many games in this stadium...I've never seen a game from the stands...I rode the bench for two years. Thought I wasn't bein' played because of my color. I got filled up with a lotta attitude. So I quit. Still not a week goes by I don't regret it. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walkin' out, letting them get the best of ya. You hear me clear enough?"

   StormCnter  yes, the groundskeeper. Iacta, you may not want to try out with the Fighting Irish football team and I'm pretty sure you don't want to join the grounds crew. How about two tickets on the 50 for the first Notre Dame home game this Fall?
