    That ain't makeup.

    I won't even put up a recent pic of Diana Rigg ... unless you tell me you haven't eaten recently.

    That pic above is Maggie Smith. But, as for Diana Rigg, yes ... but she's no Mrs. Peel anymore.

    The Apartment was a great movie. It was romantic, funny, and a bit melancholy. It's Wilder's best.

    The Apartment was only one of 20 great films produced by the The Mirich Comany which include:
    Some Like It Hot
    The Apartment
    The Magnificent Seven
    The Pink Panther
    In The Heat Of The Night
    West Side Story
    The Thomas Crown Affair
    The Great Escape
    Fiddler On The Roof

    I think Shirley MacLaine's best role was the floozy opposite Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in "Some Came Running".

    She has played in so many good movies, musicals, dramas, and comedies, I find it hard to pick her best. In "Some Came Running", her performance was stellar. One of my favorites is "Being There", probably not her best role but a good movie.
