  Is that the "I want my two dollars" movie?
Yup, that's it.  One of the best running gags in movie history.

SILVER STREAK - A comic rendition of THE LADY VANISHES and Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor's start of the best comedy duo imaginable....




Wilder gets into one comic misadventure after another when he falls for a foxy Jill Clayburgh on a train from LA to Chicago and gets tied up in the murder of her boss...

Patrick McGoohan is great as the smarmy villian Devereaux and I dare you not to wet yourself laughing when Pryor and Wilder try to evade the Cops in the Kansas City train station by painting Wilder black with shoe polish and passing him off as a brother !

        "The Court Jester" with Danny Kaye is wonderfully funny.

         "The Brass Bottle" with Burl Ives (I laughed so much I could hardly breathe!)

          "Pretty Baby" with the adorable Brooke Shields

ANDURIL   (Qu?: 'west-brilliance')  The sword of Aragorn II, reforged from the shards of Narsil (itself originally forged by Telchar of Novgrod), by elven-smiths in Rivendell in TA 3018.  On its blade a design of seven stars (for Elendil) between a crescent moon (for Isildur) and a rayed sun (for Anarion), as well as many runes.  Because of its heritage and its bearer, and because of its great brightness, Anduril quickly became a famous weapon.
