I had the distinct privilege of watching one of my all-time favorite movies last night, when TCM brought back Arthur. Nominated for four Academy Awards in 1982, Arthur is one of the very few movies I actively rooted for to win. I mean really, with the incredibly funny Dudley Moore teamed up with Liza Minnelli and the awesome Sir John Gielgud, all working together with one of the greatest movies themes ever playing behind them, how could I not?
As happy as I was that Sir John and the musical team behind Christopher Cross won their Oscars, I was just as sad that Dudley Moore did not. But who the hell could argue with Henry Fonda winning Best Actor for On Golden Pond? Sigh… If there really is such a thing as Heaven, I’ll just bet that Dudley is up there keeping Henry and Sir John in stitches! 😀
A special thanks to bloodybones345 for that beautiful video. It’s too bad the Arthur’s laugh bit didn’t work out, but it’s still a very nice tribute! 😀
I want ice water.
