High Fidelity (2000)
Great scene and it was actually Harrison Ford improvising. There was supposed to be a long complicated battle where he used the whip to disarm the guy, but Harrison had dysentery and it was hot and he said “Hey Steven can I just shoot him?” and Spielberg liked it so much it went in the movie.
I’ve saw this face in person today. Not Joan Blondell (in Miss Pinkerton 1932) but it was the same face.
I’m getting into the "free" instant movies I can watch because I am an Amazon Prime member. It’s like free popcorn and those heady early days of cable when I watched all kinds of movies that I would never pay for at a box office just because they were there.
Munching popcorn right now that is called THE BLING RING. Oh look, there’s Emma Watson. I like her. More butter, please.

You never watched that movie? Shame on you.
Get happy. Move your feet.

It was on this day in 1895 that Auguste and Louis Lumière opened the first movie theater at the Grand Café in Paris.
Thomas Edison and others were also working on various moving picture devices at the time, but most of those other devices could only be viewed by one person at a time.
The Lumières were the first to project moving pictures on a screen, so that they could be viewed by a large audience.
Henry Ford established the Ford Motion Picture department in 1914 and filmed a variety of topics. These films were later donated to the National Archives.
