    Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is one of my favorite recipes for laughter, second only to The Official Sureshs Tribute Thread.:eek:

    Definitely a classic -- have watched in several languages with a variety of subtitles. My one-time trip to Marseille also added a new dimension to the perception of the film.

    Marseille was prominently featured in The French Connection. It was a classic in its time too, with Gene Hackman winning his first Oscar for his portrayal of Popeye Doyle. "Have you been picking your feet in Poughkeepsie?" Is a legendary line from the film's dialogue.

    I suggest they do an update of this film...The Sureshs Connection would be a blockbuster! I can envision the subway platform scene reenacted with the Poobah using his nimble footwork to elude Doyle and waving #GuyBye through the subway door as the train speeds away. Who will play sureshs and Popeye???

    Well, I was just a young naive innocent white man who wanted to experience the high-speed train from the Garre de whatever in Paris. I didn’t know that public transport in Marseille was in a perpetual state of strike, that stores closed at 9pm, and if you walk afterhours, there would be robbery attempts twice per city block. I couldn’t even tell what those people wanted from me, because my French is poor and Arabic virtually non-existent.

    No wonder Gulbis seemed at home enough in '14 to win the Marseille ATP250. The girls there probably understood little of his Latvian or English so he stayed away from walking on the wild side.

    Thanks for recommending. I saw Bedtime Story a year back. David Niven, Marlon Brando, iirc. I believe quite similar, the two movies.
