    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.

    Marloes Horst like to sip brandy and then enjoy recommended bedtime stories quietly read by David Attenborough with her dog, before drifting into dreams of nirvana...

    A business friend of mine named Horst shared a Caesar's Palace room with me on a business trip to Las Vegas. Apparently, he had experienced a bit of nirvana earlier one night on that trip with a working girl on the prowl at the hotel. As I sank into my bed quietly, intending to drift off into sleep, he quietly asked me in his German-accented English, "So, Tom, vat ist dis Around The World???":eek: I met the girl in question and she was not a dog!

    Sleeping with a dog next to you is really nirvana. I remember when my dachsie used to sleep in my bed. Or rather allow me to sleep in my bed. What bliss.

    Is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels a story of you and @Rusty Shackleford pillaging some nice towns in the Riviera ? Depriving rich women of their jewels ?

    I will agree to this typecasting as long as I take the role of Lawrence Jamieson and @Rusty Shackleford plays Freddie Benson.

    It use to be that typecasting could ruin your day in Ireland if you ordered a Bushmills instead of Jameson, Paddy, or Powers...

    Actually, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a great movie, extremely funny. I haven't watched it in years, so I don't know if Freddie is the Steve Martin or the Michael Caine character. I have the feeling it's the Steve Martin character. The scene where Michael Caine demonstrates that Steve Martin doesn't have any feeling below the waste is hilarious to say the least. :eek:

    Freddie Benson would have a lot of feeling below his waist if he fell asleep in bed with Marloes, her cute nose and her cute dog.:eek:

    Great poast, sir. This is the way I want to wake up every morning. To poasts like this. Of course, I wouldn't mind waking up to those other things you mention. :eek:

    Lucie and Andea go against convention and don't order the Radek sandwich, and drink wine instead of pivo...

    I would very much like to see another film version of the classic Ira Levin novel, The Stepanek Wives. We also could do with with a remake of his other, more famous novel, Radek's Baby.
