Hello devoted followers of the drivel. While our great host and meme creator extradnaire Boxer continues to let me host (begrudgingly to more and more all the time HA) this week's theme is " Best movie that became a hit TV series". Well, really only one became a hit. And that one is M*A*S*H. I had to choose it. It was my late father's favorite show of all time. When I left Malta (the Center of the Universe) and would come home, Dad would know when MASH came on and on which channels. If it was on 4 times a day he knew when and where. He thought Hawkeye was the greatest. I was a great fan when Trapper and Frank were on but lost interest a little after that. Not my Dad. He watched it till the bitter end and then a thousand times after that.
I do love the movie though. I'm not a Donald Sutherland fan but he was outstanding in this but Elliot Gould as Trapper was the man in this movie. Duvall plays Frank and was his stellar self as well. Forget DiNero and Al Pacino. Duvall IS the greatest actor of the three. The other two guys always play the same character. Duvall can do it all. The greatest actor of my lifetime. Hmmm. That seems like a good theme for next week. Who do you think is the greatest actor of your lifetime? THATS IT! A theme. All on my own.
Anyway, enjoy this clip of the "Pro's from Dover". Brother Bill says that all the time. "Just tell them the pro's from Dover are here." Classic line.
