For anyone, anywhere, that will publish writing on movies. You'd be amazed how quickly that experience adds up and leads to other outle...

The others that are in the book are Swing Time, White Heat, On the Waterfront, To Kill a Mockingbird and Rocky . Regarding This is Spinal Tap , I can tell you that ...

Yes, isn't Once Upon a Time in the West spectacular? I hadn't seen it in a few years when I re-watched it for the book, and it was such a pleasure to experience again.

Sue Sue, I'm very happy to be here this weekend! Thanks for having me. I love talking movies as much as anyone, especially with such a community of fellow film lovers.
