Crop And Save
The Distinguished Gentleman (1992)
Truly, a different side of Eddie
I agree with some of the comments made here, and disagree with others. For those of us who were looking for the usual Eddie Murphy, you will not find him here. While watching this movie on T.V., I went to IMDb to find out more. I saw that COMEDY was not one of the genres listed for this movie. At first, I thought that nobody had added it yet, that is until I saw the whole movie. I believe it may have been an attempt for Eddie Murphy to explore a serious character-role for a change. I think he did a great job!! Although he was not cracking us up with jokes and impersonations (but he did do a few on the phone to get important information), he was still entertaining to watch. Also, the political side of the story may not have been true-to-life, but it does give the laymen (and laywomen) an idea of some of the games the big-wigs play in the United States of Americow.
Similar to aScooby computer game
"Showdown in Ghost Town" a Scooby computer game is loosely based on this episode, I think. It starts out in a tavern which has a player-piano. It also has a mining car ride with hills, twists and turns. I am in my late 30's, and I still love watching these shows! My whole family loves Scooby! Sometimes, we have a Scooby marathon and watch the Scooby series shows and movies. I really hope that more Scooby shows and movies will be made in the future. I also agree with other viewers that Scrappy was an annoying character, and I am glad that the recent shows and movies have excluded Scrappy. The actors and actresses who have taken over the main characters' voice-overs have done excellent jobs at immitating the original cast members!
Matlock: The Sisters (1986)
Are Julia and Emily suppose to be twins?
I love this episode! At the beginning of the show, you see a picture of the sisters as children, and they look as though they are not twins. Then, as young ladies, they look very similar, as though they are twins. The two actresses are not related in real life, but the casting crew did a good job picking them out. Also, the make-up and hairstyling crews did a good job making them look alike. Linda Purl as Charlene Matlock, who is 2 inches taller than Gail O'Grady, dresses up like the girls, looks very similar to them. Gail O'Grady was about 23 at the time, but Diane Behrens' birthday is not given. Then, four years later, Gail O'Grady appears as Julia McCullough again in the episode, The Kidnapper (1990), and she does not look like she has aged a bit.
I love the music!! However,there is no listing for the band or band members for this episode. Can anyone provide such information? By the way, I have heard a few of the songs they played, but do not know the names of them. AND, does anyone know the recipe for Calaloo Soup? This is not the first time I have checked IMDb for this episode for the band and music information. This will be the fifth time I have checked, and still no information!! Is this because the band is not really a band? Maybe it is because the band is no longer together. Maybe they do not wish to be contacted by individual wanting to book them for private functions. Whatever their reasons for not being listed on IMDb are, they are too good not to be recognized. If I had a working VCR, I would have recorded this episode and paused the tape when their names were listed. But, knowing my luck, IMDb would not have them listed anywhere.
Blondes vs. Brunettes
Interesting how Dianne (Shelly Long), a blonde, is the smart female. Whereas Rebecca (Kirstie Alley) is the dumb one! In comparison, Dianne had the college education and was always correcting others' mistakes, and Rebecca kept falling for Robin who used her every step of the way. True, both were beautiful, but blondes are not always as dumb as we'd like to believe (Take a look at the biography for Suzanne Sommers and Glenn Headley. Both are blondes and highly intelligent). It's my belief that blondes who are pretty use their looks to get what they want, and act stupid to make their boyfriends think they are helpless without them.
