That is right. It was Mr. Thorpe who, as a prisoner in the movie, passes the word down the dining table to Cody Jarrett, played by James Cagney, that his mother is dead.

P.S. I am glad no one named Bruce Jenner, who should be in prison for making that dumb movie with the Village People.

How can you trash a movie that featured that renowned thespian, Valerie Perrine?!

One redeeming feature! Actually, I did think Miss Perrine was great in Slaughterhouse Five.

Yeah, how can you trash Valerie Perrine. Starred in Superman (at least the first, maybe the second), and made the cover of Playboy posing in the S-cape.

Boy, you TandFNews people sure have a thing for Valerie Perrine. I like her too, but she should have known better than to be in a movie with the Village People.

By the way, since we are talking about movies and prisons... Jared Leto, who played Pre in Prefontaine, was one of the bad guys in the latest Jodie Foster film about a secret room she hides in. The odd thing was Leto looked just like he did in Prefontaine. Watching the film I kept thinking that this could be a sequel to Prefontiane, where instead of Pre dead he has gone rotten and turned to a life of crime.

careful, careful, the Gender PC Police are always out there.....

but at the risk of being deleted, Susan Anton in " Golden Girl" was reasonably pleasing to my male eye.

Boy, I'm on the black list now I guess.
