I’m tired and grouchy today, and Alex told me I was having an Oscar Madison kind of sports writing day. Which I am. This got us on a stream-of-consciousness email thread that moved naturally onto Jack Lemmon and led to our discovery of the following facts:
-Alex can’t stand Billy Wilder’s “The Apartment,” which in case you haven’t seen it, is awesome;
-He thinks Alfred Hitchcock is overrated;
-He doesn’t like Jimmy Stewart;
-He didn’t come right out and say it, but I assume he hates puppies and picks his teeth with their adorable little bones.
Meanwhile, I don’t like Faulkner and am kind of bored by Buster Keaton.
Pistols at dawn.
