He gets ragged on somewhat now but late 80's/early 90's Carvey was a beast on that show.

 

I was the number one star... in the world!!!!! ... WAPEESH!

 

Agreed to the fullest extent. His impressions from George Bush to lesser discussed ones like Robin Leach were unstoppable.

 

I still contend that his run and the season after he left are my go-to era for SNL.

MORTON TEENY TINY TABLE TOP!

Carvey was great on that show. I also loved the Neil Young he did during his first standup special: "Dead dog lyin' in a ditch /  Cigarette smoker's got an itch . . ."

RIP Arthur Hiller, who directed at least three great comedies (THE HOSPITAL, THE IN-LAWS, SILVER STREAK), the treacly LOVE STORY and, of course, AN ALAN SMITHEE FILM: BURN HOLLYWOOD BURN.

Hell of a life and career. RIP.

 

The Hospital and Teachers are underrated gems.

post #9905 of 12901

RIP

 

SILVER STREAK is my jam. One of those movies I grew up always watching.

 

And I have a soft spot for SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL.

"..Asian whores with secret vices, Lucky's has the lowest prices.."

Also the bit of Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart and Katherine Hepburn getting pulled over by the cops.

I will fistfight anyone that doesn't think he deserved the movie career Mike Myers received.

I just bought THE IN-LAWS last month on Criterion.  Time to watch it, I guess!

 

And yeah, TEACHERS was a solid movie as I recall.

I'd throw THE OUT-OF TOWNERS up there, too, Mal.

post #9909 of 12901

Wow, I forgot he directed NIGHTWING!

Belgian jazz musician Toots Thielemans (94). Worked with some of the great jazz legends.
Here's one of the last interviews the Washington Post did with him

https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/toots-thielemans-a-harmonica-titan-looks-back-on-a-stellar-career/2015/08/28/5591a176-3f76-11e5-9561-4b3dc93e3b9a_story.html

He also could be heard on tv and movie soundtracks. The ones for Midnight Cowboy & Paul Verhoeven's Turks Fruit (Turkish Delight) might be those of his more famous works.

R.I.P.

If you make it to 94 with the name 'Toots', you deserve an infinite afterlife.

He provided the harmonica solos for Quincy Jones' score to The Getaway. An amazing score that still is lost to time and has yet to see a release save for the "Love Theme" from the film that got put out.

 

post #9914 of 12901
I can't view your video Rene. It says it's not available.

Here's another one. Spielberg's The Sugarland Express with John Williams scoring and Toots assisting in the harmonica solos

What's the deal with 94 lately?

Is 94 the new 69?
post #9917 of 12901

94 is the new black. . .

post #9918 of 12901

I would prefer 94 over 69, anyways.  Especially for someone like David Bowie.

No kidding..

Marvin Kaplan from It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and the voice of Choo Choo from Top Cat.

post #9921 of 12901

Kaplan was one of the few surviving cast members of IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD. I think only Carl Reiner, Jerry Lewis and Barrie Chase are left.

The gentleman who played the Stormtrooper who infamously smacks his head on the door in A New Hope has passed away at 78. Rest in peace.

 

post #9923 of 12901
This one hits me hard.

FUCK YOU, 2016!!
post #9924 of 12901

Can't wait for the 'In Memorium' segment at the Oscars for that.

post #9925 of 12901

I cannot weep, for he is immortal.

post #9926 of 12901
Trav cannot weep, so I weep for him.

Guys, I checked, and Temura Morrison seems to be doing fine.

We need to hold Lucasfilm accountable. They can no longer be allowed to suppress medical information about concussions suffered a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Grew up in East Tennessee and would go see movies at East Towne Mall in Knoxville. Mr. Fuji took tickets there for years after his retirement. It never stopped being surreal.

Oh God dammit 2016.

sonovabitch bastard why did you do this to me

post #9939 of 12901
2016, I give up. You win.

What a brilliant performer.
post #9940 of 12901

Another legend. What a year...
post #9941 of 12901
Fuck.

We need this book.

post #9943 of 12901

Fuck you, 2016.

post #9944 of 12901

Fuck this shit.

 

My favorite Wilder moment:

 

 

Just some fantastic physical comedy here with impeccable timing.

 

I'd like think that he's now reunited with the fantastic Madeline Kahn in heaven, making YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN 2.

post #9945 of 12901
Well, that sucks. There are many, many, but this is my favorite Wilder bit. The way it cracks Cleavon Little up always makes me happy:
post #9946 of 12901

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was one of the essential films for me and my older sister growing up, along with the likes of The Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and the Star Wars trilogy and Dirty Dancing (for her, obviously) among others.

 

I've looked back on that film in recent years and the gleam in Gene Wilder's eye and the tone of his voice blending joy, menace and tenderness is something I've appreciated more and more as I get older. Especially the last scene when he sweetly tells Charlie he is giving him the factory ("That's alright, isn't it?") and his closing story about the man who suddenly got everything he ever wanted. You made many of us laugh with your comedies but for me, that moment is what I'll remember about you, good Sir. RIP.

 

post #9947 of 12901

I dread the Willy Wonka memes.

post #9948 of 12901

I haven't seen Stir Crazy in decades and have no idea if it holds up, but I have warm feelings about the film due to it being one of those impulse viewings my father took my brother and me to, despite us both being obviously too young for it. I remember Wilder being fearless and hysterical in it, and a warmth and kindness that radiated from him regardless of the role.

 

RIP, Gene.

post #9949 of 12901

God damnit.

"OPEN THIS GODDAMN DOOR OR I'LL KICK YOUR ROTTEN HEADS IN! MOMMYYYYYYYY!"

 

Yep, definitely watching YF tonight.
