thank you thank you thank you.

I'm such a dim bulb about film (ooooh; pretty picture) that I usually forget that there is a contematographer, or director of photography.


I just think a megalomaniac who's been given millions of dollars turns around and coughs up a finished film. . . .


This WIllis fella -- not bad.

God bless and keep Joe Spinell . . . wherever he is.

My thoughts exactly, Tom. This film gave Joe his big break, and he just ran with it.

And yes, it was one of the most incredible endings in film history. "Do you, Michael Corleone, renounce Satan?"
