Movie Clip Wednesday

“Best use of alcohol” the boxer saied.
I was looking for someone fuelling an explosion with a vat of booze or something, but could not remember such a scene and thus did not find one. While XL serves a nice Martini – WITH olive, ladies and gents! – Consul Firmin is not too interested in additional fruits in his glass. He’s a purist, keeping his act together, more or less until the inevitable end, like his alter ego, Mr. Lowry.

  1. Mobile dongle interfering with my viewing pleasure again 😦 I shall try to come back later when I can steal a proper PC. I shall be up with my own contribution to MCW in about four hours 🙂

  2. “There must be socks!”

    Great pick, great scene. He’s not the obvious drunk, but Albert Finney plays it well; slurring of speech, careful steps. I remember this movie, but never saw it. I like your links to info about the movie and think I’ll watch this.

    Thanks! I’m up.

  3. There are six links in the text, and I think the last one is the most interesting. I will see your post tomorrow, Joanna!

    I think he’s “blau wie eine Haubitze”, boxer, in a pretty advanced stage of drunkness.

    Cheers, XL. And sorry, I go to sleep now.

  4. I think the best on-screen drunks are the real deal. I don’t think Albert Finney was playing because he’s a party guy. I always thought he would have made a good James Bond.

    Happy MCW!

  5. Ganz klar – Männer ohne Frau sind nicht mal in der Lage, Socken anzuziehen. Tja – was will uns das sagen? Dass Socken generell unnötig sind? Würde ich mal vermuten …

    Das ist aber eine recht männliche Schlussfolferung …

    Ah, Hank Chinasky. He wrote some very impressive poems. I thought about “Barfly”, but I seriously can not stand Mr. Rourke.

    See, everybody can have an impact … The Brits changed from beer to wine, always going for the more effective means; the Poles seemingly incorporated the vino into the unchanged habits. The rest of Europe drinks less according to the chart. CHeers, great news!
