    Yeah, I worked for almost 20 years making children's cartoons for television. Only ended up working on one Hollywood feature film... but it was with Peter O'Toole, Phyllis Diller, Meaghan Followes and Kiefer Sutherland... "The Nutcracker Prince". I also spent several seasons on "Katie and Orbie", voiced by Leslie Nielsen. Good times...

    Somehow, Kiefer doesn't seem fit in that story. Don, yeah.

    Nope, it was Kiefer, who actually did the voice of the Prince himself.

    God, I hated that character.

    There's a particular scene where the Prince swings from branch to branch of a Christmas tree, with all the branches flexing and the pine needles moving around.

    I had to paint that scene, branch by branch and needle by needle. It was sent back for revision THREE times, and had to be re-done over and over. I must have put sixty or seventy hours into painting that one scene alone.

    I had nightmares about it. I suffered from Post-Kiefer-Sutherland-in-a-Christmas-Tree-Stress-Disorder for months afterward.

    Thanks for the recent posts.

    I've just had the chance to see another Humphry Bogart movie, " The Caine Mutiny " ( after again having seen Casablanca & African Queen ). This is also a film that I had not seen in a long time, I enjoyed this flick as well. Bogart gets to play a bit of a different role with lots of help from Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray and others.

    Okay then ... " Who Framed Roger Rabbit ? ". Well we are not sure but his co-star in that film has passed away. I first remember seeing Bob Hoskins in " Zulu Dawn " which was released in 1979. He was also in " Last Orders " with Michael Caine, and a number of other movies as well.

    Thanks for the posts.

    Having had the chance to watch " Anzio " again I must say that it is not a bad film ( starring Robert Mitchum and Peter Falk, among others ). I got the movie as part of a 4 disc WW II box set.

    I just had the pleasure of watching a film about a fish ( yup about a Fish Called Wanda ). I had the film on VHS but recently bought it on DVD. I hadn't watched this movie for quite a while and I had forgotten how funny it was.

    Bit of a sad day for movie-goers everywhere. One of the last remaining stars of Hollywood's Golden Age has passed away at age 98 in the person of Eli Wallach.

    Thanks for the posts.

    Way back in the days of VHS tapes I bought a copy of a movie entitled " The Crew ". Richard Dreyfuss and Burt Reynolds were in it so I gave the film a try and it was a clever and funny movie. Some weeks ago I got a chance to buy " The Crew " ( along with 7 other films ) on a DVD Package set. Not every film on this set is a treasue but some are ok. " Disorganized Crime " with Fred Gwynne ( yup Herman Munster ) is very funny. " Another Stakeout " and " Taking Care Of Business " are not bad either.

    James Garner has passed away at age 86. Oddly enough I had just finished watching " The Great Escape " recently. Garner was one of the last remaining members of the great cast of that terrific film. The oldtimers are fading fast.
