    Wow... Jim Leishman. He said: "Aye, all that poetry stuff... I regret it. I was stupid and I rose to the bait and time". I think nothing more needs to be said about the matter. @msc... I cannot imagine Lord Byron repenting of his poems.

    The wonderful Ingrid Bergman, my favourite actress, died after a long battle with cancer on her 67th birthday. But... "We'll always have Paris".

    Christopher Walken

    Yes... Christopher Walken is the malevolent leader of a gang of thieves. His role is cruel, ruthless and violent. His type of role, just like @Grim Up North said.

    William Henry McCarty Jr. or William H. Bonney (the name he used at the height of his notoriety), popularly known as Billy the Kid, one of the most infamous gunfighters and outlaws of the American West, reputed to have killed at least 27 men, died of a gunshot wound at Ft. Sumner in the New Mexico Territory on this date in 1881. He was 21 years old. Billy went to his friend Pete Maxwell's home. Sheriff Pat Garrett was questioning Maxwell. Garrett and Billy were armed. But Garrett shot first, killing Billy. Billy was buried in Fort Sumner's military cemetery. A tombstone was later erected over the grave with a word of "Pals" carved into it. The tombstone has been stolen three times since it was set in place in the 40's and the gravesite is now enclosed within a steel cage.

    Christopher Walken

    "A view to a kill" was pretty good, but it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The cast did a good job in the film... with a great and spectacular Grace Jones. But the plot could've been better. Christopher Walken was the first Oscar winning actor to play a main villain in a Bond film. In my opinion... his best film is "The deer hunter". An extraordinary film with a truly awesome sequence... the three prisoners forced to play Russian roulette while their captors gamble on who will... or will not... the survivor... really impressive. Great film with stellar performances, Christopher Walken and Meryl Streep coming off best. And Walken won his Oscar for this role.
