Also, Robert reviews The Invitation, Born to Be Blue and Everybody Wants Some!! ( Yup, two exclamation points, just like the song by Van Halen

Also Steve talks about a recent film worth seeing, The Railway Man with Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman and wonders about the state of comedy in the 60’s by watching Blake Edwards’ S.O.B.
Robert likes the film, Steve wasn’t so sure, though the conceit of getting supposed Goody-Two-Shoes Julie Andrews to show “her boobies,” was a funny bit for Hollywood in 1969.
