THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (2 hr - 59 min)
GRAUMAN'S CHINESE THEATRE

10:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Often hailed as the greatest of all "spaghetti Westerns," this 1966 epic has become an indelible part of our culture from Ennio Morricone's influential score to the iconic presence of Clint Eastwood as "The Man With No Name." Director Sergio Leone expanded writer Luciano Vincenzoni's idea for a film about three scoundrels looking for treasure during the Civil War to deal on a grand scale with the absurdity of war.

I'm 400 miles away in Arizona, I can't go, already paid for high school reunion the night before, and Mrs. Cusser is away that weekend so I have the dogs.  I did see Superman in 1978 at Mann's Chinese, great theater, seats over 1000, and would be great to hear Eli speak.  I have no idea if it would even be possible to get his autograph on one of my Leone books....I'm not huge into autographs.

I'd love to hear Eli Wallach speak.

I just saw Polanski's "The Ghost (Writer)" today and was surprised to see a very nice cameo from Wallach in it.

Incidentally, does anyone know why they changed the name from the original novel on which it is based to "The Ghost Writer" in the US but kept it as "The Ghost" in the UK? Personally, I much prefer the original shorter name.

Looks like author Robert Harris is partnering with Polanski again. If it's anywhere near as good as "The Ghost(writer)" then it should be fantastic:
