          Nice movie that, how Charlie scores birds is beyond me though, mabe they recognise him from the odd couple. Scorpio man was in a movie last night, called Two Minute Warning. He plays another psycho, modelled on Scorpio, who takes to the top of the LA Colleseum with a high powered rifle during the Superbowl. But it's filmed like a 70s disaster movie. There's no explanation as to who this guy is, why he's doing it or who he was trying to kill, except for the fact that he wears a pair of them soft desert boots - suggesting that he's a hippie, so say no more...

          What I do like about this movie is that because it's done like a disaster movie, with various characters outlined in the tedious first half - family who's father lost his job (so they go to the superbowl, cheap&#33, a guy who owes a bookie big, a pickpocket couple, a priest!, a guy who's girl likes the guy next her etc etc. When they psycho starts to shoot randomly, spurred on by the fact that the cops are onto him, out of all the 30,000 crowd, all these characters get shot! That made it worth my while...

            And Charlton Hestons vast erray of different rugs was most definitely awe-inspiring.

              I know! It was hilarious. Heston was the police captain, co-ordinating over 150 cops in the area in and around the Superbowl. When he learns of the nut with a rifle, he puts on his jacket, drives down there, climbs up the tower and shoots him himself... There's a thing called delegation you know....!

              Finally got round to getting a copy of Jazz Thing. Dick sends me Jazzamatazz, in a soft envelope with 'enjoy!' written on the back...

                What, Mr. NRA delegate that job and pass on the opportunity of a good old fashioned shooting? It's his constitutional right y'know! (At least we won't have to sit through all that now ).

                        that bloke who played Scorpio couldn't get work afterwards (except playing psychos) because he was so convincing in Dirty Harry.

                          He has a pervy face, perfect for 70s throwback films... Not surprised he got typecast!

                            I think you'll find Andrew Robinson did OK!

                              Scorpio was played by a guy named Andy Robinson, and in the late 80s he starred in a biopic of Liberace, no less! And for the record, back in my college days I acquired the nickname 'Clint' - not because I looked like Mr Eastwood (more's the pity) but because a bunch of girls reckoned I looked like "the guy who Clint Eastwood beat up at the end of Dirty Harry"...uh, thanks girls. I think. Suppose a shag's out of the question, then?
