Best Mini Series:     “I Claudius” will blow your  silk skirt off into Timbuktu.  I called in sick to watch the last episode.  Naughty girl.   Brilliant piece of work.  I-Claudius is a  C-C-C-lassic.“I Claudius”

Favorite Movie Star:     Meryl Steep is a chameleon.  A non-traditional beauty.  A treasure.  She can do anything, anything.  If I had my own production studio…..For example,  “OWN”….I’d cast her in every movie.  

 Julie & Julia, WOW.

 One of my Fave. Movie Scenes:       I can never get enough  Jack.  This is one of his best roles.  Firsrate.  Superb.  A Classic Jack Ass, Indeed.Five Easy Pieces”

Greatest  Film of All time:  – “Spartacus”

For me, no other movie has surpassed Spartacus.  In this scene Varinia shows Spartacus his baby for the first time.  “He is Free,” She says.  “He is Free.”   I sob every time I watch this  mindblowing, 1960 Classic.
