Movies....

..... once upon there was a movie called "The Frisco Kid".... it was an odd little movie that paired Harrison Ford with Gene Wilder and featured a wandering rabbi blabbing in Yiddish all the way across The Old West.....

.... now, in the Great Scheme of Things, that pairing would be bad enough on its own, but sadly the story-line didn't fare much better than the pairing...... anyway, I mention this only because I have an uncle that looks EXACTLY like Wilder's character in the movie...... same wild hair, same crazy eyes, same insane beard.... no decorative yarmulke though, but you get the point.... he sports a baseball cap instead....

..... I often imagine that most of my female aunts wish that more of my uncles looked more like Harrison Ford and less like Gene Wilder....

.... then again, nowadays the "Frisco Kid" is a rapper with songs like "Head Hurt" and "Look What Dem Done"........

.... good god, Gene...... what were you thinking?........ and Harrison?....... Jesus Christ.......... the whole scene ranks right up there with Bill Cosby starring in "Ghost Dad" on the scale of Bad Career Decisions........

..... and speaking of "ghosts", I have been seriously enjoying all of the paranormal television shows in the run-up to Halloween.... I can handle watching grown men wander around old houses in pitch dark all day long, but I'm still not happy about "The Walking Dead" being turned into a whole television SERIES..... good god, can you imagine?..... just the advertisements give me the heebie jeebies.....

Bullshit So Far

Harrison Ford is quite cute, but I always found myself strangely attracted to Gene Wilder. I was always one to defy convention, I suppose.

"The Walking Dead" meets "The Frisco Kid." That'd give me the Hebrew-Jeebrews.

I disagree with you (and the critics) on this one. It was a fun little movie. Particularly liked Chief Dan George's work in it. Then again, I have always enjoyed Gene Wilder's work. It didn't hurt his career in the least. Now, as to the credibility of Harrison Ford, seems he lucked out later playing some oddball archeologist...

Then again, from the side, in the right light, I bear a striking resemblance to that character from the "Frisco Kid".

The Frisco Kid was one of my dad's favorite movies.

Did any of your aunts look like Gilda Radner?

Gene Wilder's autobio is worth a read.
