The sketches and works of art that Dick Van Dyke was working on in the "Art of Love" were actually done by Alto, Louisiana native Don Cincone, an internationally acclaimed expressionist. In 1968, he was awarded the Silver Medal of Literary Arts and Sciences in Rome and his work has been collected by Walt Disney, Kurt Schon, Henry Mancini, Ross Hunter, James Garner and Vincent Price! Although he was never credited for his artwork in the movie, he still speaks fondly of his "Hollywood days" and the impact that it made on him. See more »
Hey Hollyweird! WHY ISN'T THIS CLASSIC ON DVD & TAPE!?!?!?!?
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, and I can not, for the life of me, understand why it STILL isn't out on Tape or DVD. Its premise is hysterical and the acting is pure Academy Awards! Especially the old lady who sits by the Guillotine and cackles nothing but "Guillotine! Ha Ha Ha! Guillotine!" I swear; everyone in this film is GREAT! James Garner; Dick Van Dyke; Elke Sommer: Angie Dickinson; They're all hysterical, and the last 15 or 20 minutes of the film is is a total riot! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE, Hollyweird Moguls, Get this one out to us!!!! With all the celluloid effluvia out nowadays, let's get this CLASSIC out as soon as possible!!!
