Checking back, I would have to say Roy Kinnear definitely would have - so let's open our chocolate bar and look for our golden ticket to this one:
When I was a kid, this was a staple yearly viewing - every Thanksgiving night NBC would show it - and I would watch it - whether back home from our big family meal; still home because the big family meal was at my house that year; or still over at some family member's house we had eaten at. It was often interrupted, and sometimes not finished, but I always loved the movie - and the original book by Roald Dahl, of course.
This was a movie I wanted to own on DVD due to the fact that it had a commentary from the kids in the film - reunited decades later - which is just a great idea - whether the commentary itself is or not - but the high price point kept me away from it for the longest time. I finally got it on sale this year - and no, I haven't listened to the commentary yet - I wouldn't be me without a healthy dose of delayed gratification.
So it resides in the video vault - and Oompa Loompa Doompity Dee - If you are of the mind you could come watch it with me!
Even tonight - if you're not too tired from Thanksgiving and Black Friday!
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
