Moira, I fell hard for Paul Sand on the Mary Tyler Moore show when I was about 8 years old, watched his short lived series, and I find that when he turns up my heart starts palpitating again. The Hot Rock
isn't the greatest movie, but Sand and Mostel are super in it. I'll admit that I can't remember one damn thing from it except Sand and Mostel.
I can't believe I didn't mention The Asphalt Jungle!
Ark, I tend to agree with you about heist films, however, if that's the criteria, then High Sierra
is not a heist film either, since it is not strictly about the heist. A brilliant, heart wrenching movie, with that blue sky denoting freedom always on the horizon. I wish I'd thought of it.
Alison, Andrew's favorite is also The Italian Job
And please, Ark, don't remind me about the ear.
