Saturday Night at the Movies 12/13/14!

Who cares what picture we see?

Larry Hagman would have - as long as we didn't ask on Sunday - so we're going with this one:

One of my very favorite movies of all time. I first saw it on the big screen - front row center. Then some time later we had installed cable in our house and weird things were going on - there was a programming feature that showed a movie not yet available to HBO or Showtime Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday night, then not the next Thursday, but the Thursday a week later. Four showings - and I watched every one of them when they showed Superman. Then Showtime showed it a couple of months after that - and I watched every showing I could.

I'm guessing I saw it a dozen times or more by the time Showtime took it off the schedule. Already by this time I could recite the movie's dialogue line for line. I still can - with a few dozen more viewings in the years since.

However, I promise I won't do that if you want to come watch it with me - from a nice DVD box set - unless you want me to...

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Love the poster for this, simple but effective. I'm a big fan of the Superman film too, despite it having a bunch of issues, but it's still great fantasy fun, and hits the mark more times than the dreary 'Man of Steel' did (yup, I finally caved and watched it a few months ago... ugh). Might have to dig this one out soon for a re-watch myself!
