Tonight, my eldest daughter picked:

Steve Martin in DEAD MEN DON'T WEAR PLAID (1982)

Ridiculously brilliant... watched this a gazillion times on HBO in the '80s, then kind of forgot about it, until I picked up the DVD a few years back.

Unbelievably clever, and howlingly funny.  One of Martin's very best!

DEAD MEN really got cheated. Woody Allen did ZELIG and critics couldn't stop falling all over themselves praising him for what was basically a cut and paste job. DEAD MEN actively inserted Martin into scenes, dialog and all!

(I have a DEAD MEN one-sheet signed by Steve Martin. Unfortunately, getting the autograph was not something in which I actively participated!)

Curious bit of ICE STATION ZEBRA trivia. I discovered that Patrick Magoohan filmed this movie at the same time as THE PRISONER, and in order to cover his absence two episodes of that show were built out of recycled DANGER MAN (SECRET AGENT) episodes.
