"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

I Know that Guy…

I once saw the actor Kevin McCarthy, Mary’s brother, walk out of my grandparent’s apartment building. I felt happy to see him, a recognizable face from so many forgettable movies. He was tall and elegant and though I didn’t say anything to him, I felt better just being near him for a minute.

He died on Saturday, 96 years old. R.I.P.

Ah, what a drag. However - 96? Nice run!

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a great movie. Phil Kaufman's '78 remake is damned good too.

2) Finally, a P. Kael favorite you agree with.

Hey, Pauline and I agree on many films. I understand her loopy enthusiasm for DePalma.
