It reminded me of this exchange in 'The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy'.......
AS SEEN IN:
"Groucho: A Life In Revue"
AS PLAYED BY:
Frank Ferrante reprised his role as Groucho Marx in "Groucho: A Life in Revue" for this 1999 performance staged at the Westport Country Playhouse in Connecticut where it was taped for a PBS national broadcast. Original show premiered in New York and London starring Ferrante during the 1986-87 season. It ran 254 performances in New York where Ferrante won a Theatre World Award and was nominated for three Laurence Olivier Awards in London. The New York Times picked the tv version as a 'highlight' in 2002. Written by Groucho's son Arthur Marx and Robert Fisher.
Groucho would have been 120 years old today!
I'm sending this out to my brother Tim, who shares Groucho's birthday.......
It's tempting to toss 'Mad Men' over to 'The West Wing' world entirely because of all its Zonks (because they show scenes from actual TV series and identifying them). Those other TV shows should be sharing the same world as 'Mad Men'. But I've made peace with that type of discrepancy and have adapted Andy Warhol's credo for it: In Toobworld, just about anybody can have a TV show made about them. So despite all its faults the two Landinghams can't be one and the same.
That has always been one of my favorite TV theme songs and title sequences. There was an elegiac, dirge-like quality to the music, which seems appropriate for today's news.....
As Red Skelton would say, Good night and may God bless, Mr. Schwartz.
