    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.
