The Duelists

Best Ever List Making

Saturday night I happened upon across "The Princess Bride," in progress.  Of course I had to watch  to it's conclusion—for maybe the 15th time.  As the credits rolled I was reminded that MFCS Rob Reiner directed two of my all time favorite movies; Bride and "This Is Spinal Tap."  Oh well, Barbara Streisand has a nice voice too - when she's singing.  But that's not what I'm wanting to say. Having decided that Princess Bride is among my all-time fav movies, I set to add 9 more and make a nice post.  Out of the  blue the mind grabbed a film I used to watch in the early 80's, on Sunday mornings, on A&E.  I forgot the name and had to Google "two french soldiers fight a series of duels"?   Duh.

  1. The Duellists (1977) - Synopsis - IMDb
    The two officers had fought a series of duels in the midst of great wars on some ... There is a lull in the Napoleonic wars, and the French soldiers are enjoying a ...

To my knowledge this film has not aired publicly for a quarter century, and I've looked for it. Amazon and Google will charge $2.99 to watch it,  but Putlocker has a free download.   I cannot imaging anyone giving less than 4 stars to this 5 star film. You're welcome.  See ya later.

A last slap at Bawney Fwank

It appears self-styled equality champ and former

proprietor Barney Frank can no longer catch a break in #ThisTown. Sigh.

Not only has the documentary team that followed the Massachusetts Democrat around during his final year in Congress struggled to make ends meet on Indiegogo, now the art house theater where the trio had originally planned to stage the D.C. premiere of “Compared to What: The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank” is staggering toward a fast-approaching final bow.

Filmmaker Sheila Canavan told HOH plans to share the up-close-and-personal look at the former lawmaker with District cinephiles have been shelved pending the conclusion of the ongoing fundraising push.

She and partner Michael Chandler have raised roughly a third of the funds (around $30,000, at press time) they feel is necessary to fine-tune the silver-screen treatment of Frank’s everyday existence. [Roll Call cont]

I suspect this will be the last time Bawney, the man most responsible for the 2008 bank collapse, will grace this page.  No, not even for his obit. For those interesetd, his newly released autobiography, “Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage” is for sale. Hurry, while they last.
