I'd know that pretty face anywhere. I fell in love with Anjanette Comer when I saw The Loved One in 1965. Beautiful woman.

Not a fan of prison movies. I did enjoy Brute Force (1947) with Burt Lancaster. That was about the last one. And yes, I'm including "Shawshank"...:) I am, however, a big Roger Deakins fan.

Well, if you don't have it in the contract you don't get it. It does seem silly, especially for such a highly paid superstar. I don't know if his drug use played a part in his pickiness, or whether...
