Movie Moment #5

Also this week:

A Stroll Through Jim Henson's Legacy- possible alternate title: "Good Grief! The Comedian's a Bear!"

The Worst Accents in Movie History, Part 1 and Part 2- I wrote capsules for Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke, and Tommy Lee Jones

God bless Barbra Jean (and Barnett too)...

Great piece on Privilege in ScreenGrab, Paul. Look for a link to it on my site soon!

Thanks man. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Much as I love Barbara Jean- and have come to love Barnett- my sentimental favorite of all the NASHVILLE character has always been Bill, played by Allen Nichols. I guess it all comes down to identification- I've always considered myself to be a creative person, but I always end up being "the funny guy" rather than the sexy one. He's got so many great throwaway moments too- "wait a minute! Hal Philip Walker looks exactly like Connie White" is an obvious one, but I also like when he throws "oh, great, my turtle" into the middle of an argument with Mary.
