Need to revisit “Cloak and Dagger.”

from wiki:

In a 2012 interview, Coleman recalled:

I thought it was a great idea. I didn’t get along with the director [Richard Franklin]. He’s since passed on, but he was… Well, I won’t say that. But it was great working with that little kid. Henry Thomas. What a great kid. And a great actor. I’ll tell you, though, it’s amazing how many people have come up to me and said something to me about that film, including Timothy Bottoms… So Timothy came up to my table at Dan Tana’s, where I was, uh, kind of a regular… Timothy says, “You don’t know me from veal parmesan, but I just want to thank you for playing Jack Flack. You don’t know what that movie means to my son and me”. That happens to me two or three times a year. It’s always either a father saying, “I saw that movie with my son”, or a son saying, “I saw it with my dad”. But then they say, “Seeing that movie was very important in my life”. And that’s always very nice to hear.[6]

I had never heard of this movie. So I read a short post about it, and it won me over when it mentioned “Atari”.

“I don’t have to take that, you pig-eyed sack of shit.”

My favorite from Dabney was this clip from Buffalo Bill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww5bYOP9Tu0

Just got the QPC super sized. In the doc it was the double qpc that he raved about for 6 bites before suffering a “reversal”.

Pleased to see Moorhead Kennedy get some recognition. A rare diplomat who tried to see the world through the eyes of others rather than purely through his home country’s perspective.
