I just heard on CNN that Dudley Moore passed away today. I'm not a fan of his work, but thought I'd pass along the news to those who did enjoy his work. Wasn't he a voice in Milo and Otis? -sigh- That takes me back.

He was the narrator of Milo and Otis, yes. He also swapped bodies with Kirk Cameron in "Like Father, Like Son", not to be confused with the other piece of Freaky Friday dreck of the period, Fred Savage and Judge Reinhold's "Vice Versa".

To quote Jay Sherman - "I've got a liver the size of coconuts."
For perhaps Moore's finest picture, I'd recommend the original Bedazzled, with Peter Cook. A great, great movie and contains one of the greatest examples of Why the Devil Did What He Did.
Don't forget the One-legged Tarzan Bit, which is, as they say, both CLASSIC and EPIC.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
yeah, Bedazzled is his best picture (we'll not mention the Hound of he Baskervilles...oh dear). For his funniest work though, checkout Behind the Fringe and sketches wth Peter Cook like One leg Too Few, or any of the Pete n Dud sketches from 'Not Only But Also'. the work of funny, funny men, both sadly missed.
I think possibly the greatest Mini series of all time is on the History Channel tonight at 8pm ET 7 CT. If you haven't seen it I encourage you to. The first time I saw it I was blown away, it is emotional and really shows what guys in WWII went through.
