I watched THE THRILL OF IT ALL (1963) last night to remember Carl Reiner. I
DVRd it weeks ago after TCM ran this great original trailer as a promotion:

THE THRILL OF IT
ALL - Theatrical Trailer


The movie is slight but fun - the chemistry between Doris Day and James
Garner is wonderful, and the screenplay is by Reiner based on a story by he
and Larry Gelbart.

He really was one of the greats. In fact I'd quite happily say that 'The Man with Two Brains' is my favourite comedy of all time. As I genuinely never tire of watching it. There's just so much energy to it. Him & Steve Martin were truly an unbeatable combination.

So R.I.P Mr Reiner. And thanks for all the laughs..

Speaking of collaborations with Steve Martin, I feel DEAD MEN DON'T WEAR PLAID really got jilted when the critics poured all their praise onto ZELIG, which I found a much less impressive piece.

Well, ZELIG gets all the praise because its a Woody Allen movie. And Allen is very much overrated.

I've always been a bit perplexed by how little praise 'Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.' actually gets. It was an achievement then, and it's still damned well impressive today. Even in an era where it would be much more easy to do something like that, it still stands out.
