Jlp937-Sunflower Goddess wonders:
quote:
Why is it that some films with some of our favorites don't get remembered, or rather get forgotten?
Maybe it's because the actor/actress is cast in a movie but only in a supporting role, and not the leading role. Or the performer decides to do a walk-on "cameo" role. You'd have to look really hard to find that person!

Or there are times that an actor/actress appears in a type of movie that he/she normally would not have done before. In other words, they are cast against type.

One good example is Bill Murray in "Tootsie", where Dustin Hoffman is the lead. But when people think of Murray, they usually don't mention that film.

Also, Murray was in a dramatic movie called "The Razor's Edge", which flopped. But when people talk about Murray's movies, it's usually his comedies!

Another easily-explained reason is that a certain movie was made very early in the performers' career, before they became famous in later roles. Example: Sean Connery made a bunch of forgettable light comedies and even a Disney musical ("Darby O'Gill & The Little People" in 1959) before he got to play James Bond! Watching those pre-Bond movies takes on a whole dimension!

"Buffy...", "Airheads", "Pulp Fiction" and "Darby O'Gill And The Little People"...Aaah, yes, what great 80s movies. [Wink]

Note: I'm only joking...That's all it is, and yes, jlp, I saw you mention the year of 1959 in your Sean Connery post.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

Devolution here,

Who was Forest Whitaker in Vision Quest? Are you confusing him with Griff from Married with Children who was in Vision Quest? Or do I Really not remember Forrest Whitaker in it?

Forest Whitaker played the wrestler Balldozer in Vision Quest. I hardly remembered seeing him in that nor did he had that much dialogue.
