Re: The Best Ensemble Casts of All Time?

Some very good choices especially 'Around the World', 'Lovely war' and 'Mad, mad World'.

Re: What Is The Most Disturbing Film?

There was one called, 'Seconds'. My memory is hazy. Did anyone see it? I don't recall cast. I think, Rock Hudson was in it. It was about making people look younger.

'All the King's Men' was on tcm yesterday. It was 'hollywood history', of course but worth seeing because it told about Huey Long in the 30s.
