    That recalls Archie Bunker telling the bartender that, while feeling depressed, he'd gone to see a movie:
    "The Last Tango in Paris. I thought they brought back an old one, you know, with Gene Kelly dancin' around the Eiffel Tower . . . what I saw was pure porno-graffy."

    I almost did a spit-take on that one (I happened to be drinking a glass of water).

    I was about 10 years old when the movie came out, and my parents did not take me to the movies to go watch it.

    I think at the time it came out it was X-rated, for somebody who was expecting shoot outs from horse back it was a bit shocking. Keep in mind these were people who had been kids during the days of the 3rd. Reich and if I recall correctly the woman had been part of the Hitler Youth movement. So when I said conservative I was being conservative.

    There were a few movies pushing the limits like that at the time, M.A.S.H. was also pretty cutting edge. I know I wasn't allowed to go and see it in the theater.

    Speaking of M*A*S*H...

    Hotlips O'Houlihan: [to Father Mulcahy, referring to Hawkeye] I wonder how a degenerated person like that could have reached a position of responsibility in the Army Medical Corps!

    Probably it is widely known that the line was unscripted, but was Hoffman staying in character when a cab cut through the scene being filmed in Times Square.
    Sure, because they were filming without a permit!

    C.D. Bales - "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream - and I hope you don't find this too crazy - is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, "Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!" That would be bad."
