Tricky Dick Nixon as portrayed by Dan Hedaya.

Kissinger again portrayed by Saul Rubinek along with Dave Foley as Bob Haldeman (on the right).

 

The movie is DICK, an alright watchable comedy movie, pretty clever in some parts. Lots of other notables from the Watergate period are seen, like Harry Shearer as G. Gordon Liddy.

As you'll see Interestingly enough, one of Kelly ancestors was one of Padres of the Irish Brigade during the War Between the States Father William Corby.

The British actor Nicholas Rowe (On Right) as a young King George III in LONGITUDE.

 

Longitude is an excellent 2000 British T.V. Mini Series, I got it on DVD, highly recommended.

 

A virtual Who's Who of British actors and actresses from the 60s-70s to the late 90s as you see.

Something odd in Johnny Frost pic.

Isn't he wearing his Sam Brown belt incorrectly. The cross chest belt isn't doing that and is on the same side as its attachment.

Is this a Highland way of wearing this belt ? Why ?

 Re watching The Vikings last night and later tonight, and so I hit the old GOOGLE Wiki on it, and seen that Ernie Borgnine's character like Frank Thring's Aella is also a real person.

Ed Harris as the John Glenn in the 1983 film the Right Stuff. Haven't seen him posted yet, so this is a good opportunely to post as we just lost Colonel Glenn this very day.

Gregory Peck as Lincoln in the 1982 mini series The Blue and The Grey.

Peck was 66 at the time he did this, yet Lincoln would have been in his early 50s at the time of the scenes shown in the photo. Still Peck looks almost younger than Lincoln.
If there was every a reason not to run for President of the US, you only have to look at the photos of pretty much each of them (even the one-term ones) before they took office and right after they left. 4-8 years looks like it takes decades of toll onto those people who have the office...

I think the Florence Nightingale story should get the Major Motion Picture treatment.

 

Who would portray her?

 

Why Keira Knightly By Jove.

Edward Binns as Beetle Smith in PATTON. This is a still from the scene at the end of the war when Patton, sitting for a portrait gets a call from Bedell Smith, asking him about something he said about the Nazis' or somthing, and Patton goes off big time on the Russians, remember  :lol: 

 

 

You're Mad George!!!
