A Day To Celebrate Robert Vaughn: SOB

Oh, just go right now to eBay or Amazon and buy a copy of this movie.

As a fan from childhood, I enjoyed following the entertainment industry (until it seemed to become "who are you and why should I care because you really can't act your way out of a wet paper sack"). I knew peripherally about this movie, but after I returned to MFU, I began collecting as much of the work of the boys as I could on DVD (and now, digitally).

SOB as a satire of the Hollywood filmmaking community during the early 1980s rings the bell on SO many levels for me. It is truly, truly a dark, dark, dark comedy, so be warned. And, Robert? Oh, such delightful scene chewing. I mean, almost every role called for its actor to do so, but he was just MARVELOUSLY egomaniacal.

And, he had great legs. Just sayin.

    Do you think UNCLE was ahead of THRUSH in technology, vice versa or were they matched to a point in which neither could really triumph because of it?
