Mine is a message of how to look for the weakest link in any multi-step endeavor. Probably pounded into me from my endless involvement in [sometimes painful] startups I guess.

Well he's not using Kong anymore. As of this post, his icon is a gif of one of my favorite scenes ever:



In the theater, (I saw it when it first came out), it was so refreshing that people were talking about it for weeks. You couldn't mention that movie without that scene coming up.

As with all iconic scenes that become so strongly embedded in movie going that they become cliches, it's all too easy to forget just how hysterical this was at the time.

And yes, the story of Harrison Ford having a whopping case of the @#$%s being the reason for it all is true.



Dan Duryea one of my favorite character actors.
Ah, the only things I know him from are Flight of the Pheonix (1965) and that episode of the Twilight Zone where he played the drunk gunfighter. (Looks like he did mostly westerns which is probably why I'm not too familiar with him.)

In addition to his western movies, Dan Duryea was also in a lot of film noir movies.

And, if I'm not getting muxed ip, his nephew, Ian, was quite a well known singer alongside his backing group The Blockheads in the 70s - which is a third reason to be cheerful.

Just a bit of weird synchronicity - my mom had a recent fall, so while recuperating I've been trying to find movies on TCM (On Demand) for her to watch - the only movie options we have currently.
So I just put one on called: The Valley of Decision (1945) and darned if Dan Duryea's name wasn't in the opening credits!



⬆️ Hope your mother is feeling better.
