Great movie, & great tv show, and (from what I've heard) great play.

Any other story do it on those three levels?

[4] MASH was 2 for 3. Not sure if they ever tried it on stage.

{4] Addams Family play is supposed to be pretty good. It's got solid leads in Nathan Lane & Bebe Newirth. The TV show was great, and the movies were far from classics, but excellently cast. Raul Julia and Angelica Huston were great as Gomez and Morticia.

Course, I was looking for that Triple Play scene cause it was filmed at Shea. They wanted Clemente to be the guy who hit into it but he refused, proud bastid that he was...

[5] Though M*A*S*H was also (from what I hear) a good book. Different sort of triple play?
[6] Solid movies, RIP, Raul.

MASH was good book, co-written by the late, great WC Heinz!

R. Julia, GREAT actor. We should devote a week of Million Dollar Movies to him.

[9] The perfect Gomez. Better then John Astin. Less silly, more flamboyant. Angelica Houston was a killer Morticia as well. I mean - (gulp) - she was kinda hot in the first movie.

Last night you were unhinged. You were like some desperate, howling demon. You frightened me.

Do it again.


The Odd Couple TV show was a favorite of mine. I loved Jack Klugman. Back in the day whenever people would complain about this or that, I'd always tell 'em to call Quincy. He could fix anything.
