Not the oft shown remake with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo, but the original with McQueen and Faye Dunaway. Tomorrow, December 7, at 2000 MST. It’s preceeded by The Graduate, which may interest some here.

Remake? What remake? Who would watch a remake of this movie? Pierce Brosnan instead of Steve McQueen? Poppycock.
I'm partial to the original, but that might be a result of being in the movie as a 9 year old uncredited extra. The polo shot at the start of the movie were filmed at the Myopia Hunt Club in Hamilton, MA, in the summer of '67. Just about every kid in town worked there at one point or another, either as a caddy or at the polo fields, hot walking the ponies. The ref on horseback you see clearly is my best friends father. I am one of the out of focus blurs in the background, but I know which one I am!
There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!
