Does anyone remember Francisco Rabal in William Friedkin's Sorceror?

Speaking of Max Von Sydow, how about Bengt Ekerot as Death in The Seventh Seal. The ultimate assassin.

No Bond assassins? What about Odd Job? Or Scaramanga, the man with the golden gun? Or Jaws (Richard Kiel)? Or even James Bond himself?

William Friedkin's 1977 film Sorceror starring Roy Scheider was a remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1953 film The Wages of Fear. One of my favorites. Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars was Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo, and John Sturges' The Magnificent Seven was Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai. There may be a release of The Seven Samurai starring George Clooney next year. Not sure what to think about that. Is it fair to suggest Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet or Henry V?

Rush Limbaugh merely wanted President Obama to fail, not his kidneys to fail. When they heard this, Big Media and the Progressive Left that expressed an opinion were apoplectic. Wanda Sykes wants Rush Limbaugh to fail and his kidneys to fail. When they heard this, Big Media and the Progressive Left who expressed an opinion apparently found it humorous.
