I want to punch Michael Murphy every time he's on screen
MOVIEMAN1957 wrote:The most wonderful things about Ealing comedies is that they make you smile. Sometimes you laugh out loud but you certainly smile. There's a genteel quality to them that even when things are going wrong for one of the characters those situations are met with a calm and almost inevitable feeling that things will work out. Maybe not the way every one planned but all will be fine...
Now girls which gent would YOU run up to to get their autograph?

You hit the nail on the head with just one word: “genteel.” That describes it to the “T.” That’s the quality I couldn’t put into one word. The film also opened my eyes to Paul Douglas. I shall be looking for him in the future. It took a lovely British comedy to make me see an American actor very differently.
When CATCH-22 came out in June 1970, I saw it three times that summer. You might call it my SKYFALL of 1970.
It was also the first DVD I purchased.
