I saw this once on cable and quite enjoyed it. Brolin made a most convincing tough guy and the city is captured at its worst, and I've lived here in all of my 64 years. If you want good sleaze, this is it.

For me, he'll always be the "spokesperson" for TPC - The Phone Company in THE PRESIDENT'S ANALYST. Having worked for Ma Bell at one point in my life, I get a kick out of that segment of the film.

I was watching MOTHRA on WABC's 430 Movie, or "The Big Show" - whatever they were calling it at that time. The image started to shrink proportionately on our 14-inch B&W TV and then the lights went out. Going out into the hall, I saw...

Not to denigrate Tom Weaver's contributions here, but whenever "assume" is referenced, this scene always comes to mind, even after 40 years. Since then, my own usage tends to lean to the word presume.
