The Court Jester with Danny Kaye.

The vessle with the pestle has the brew that is true!  You are not alone.  Screwtape Sr was a big fan of Danny Kaye, so I was introduced to his films at an early age.  Also, Abbot and Costello.  Me Mum inflicted John Wayne on me and my sister unmercifully and continues to do so even now.  While I generally do not think much of Mr Wayne, there are a couple of movies I do like - the Cowboys, the Silent Man and the Shootist.  Jeff Bridges was a far superior Rooster Cogburn.

i can't find the clip, but I love the song Danny Kaye does at the beginning of Inspector General where he's selling the fake elixir.
It's one of the reasons I'm an atheist today.  I decided to take my religion seriously, and that's when it started to fall apart for me.

I agree with this, though I am a fan of the John Wayne version of True Grit as well.

But Bridges' delivery of this scene gives me shivers in a way that Wayne did not:
"When we landed on the moon, that was the point where god should have come up and said 'hello'. Because if you invent some creatures, put them on the blue one and they make it to the grey one, you f**king turn up and say 'well done'."

Ok, while this is actually a CGI clip from a Japanese pachinko game (think of a cross between pinball and a slot machine), the reaction it got from fans of the anime Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers in the US) was that it is far superior to anything featured in the live action movie that came out in 2010.

Growing up watching Star Blazers every morning before going to school, I was in an instant state of geekgasm the instant I saw the Yamato (Argo) burst out of the water and take off. :-*

The cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff.

The only thing bigger than the universe is humanity's collective sense of self-importance.

Rio Bravo, North to Alaska, The Quiet Man, The Cowboys, and The Shootist are my favorite John Wayne films.

You can never go home again, but I guess you can shop there.
