‘Live From New York!’ Trailer: Tribeca
“They said it would be a cross between 60 Minutes and Monty Python.” It turned out to be much more than that, something completely different — at least at the time of its mid-1970s debut — that endures as as a kind of “living time capsule” of U.S. life, politics, and pop culture. A chronicle of the fabled NYC and American institution, Live From New York! opens the Tribeca Film Festival on April ...

SNL just took FOX to their knees!

Resolved Question: What was the SNL Weekend
I remember Bill Murray saying "if they loose, that's OK. Ya beat a bunch of girls." Jane Curtin was none too pleased.

Resolved Question: Seniors, what are your
The original Not Ready For Prime Time Players: Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Lorraine Newman, Gilda Radner, and I'll include Bill Murray, as he was a regular for the first few years before becoming an actual member of the cast.
I find it striking that perhaps the most successful television career was that of Jane Curtin, who went on to star in two successful comedy series and was probably the most grounded of them all. She once said that the other cast members slept with each other, did drugs and lived dangerously, while she went home to her husband and her dog each night.
But there's a very special place in my heart for Gilda and Billy. Derail, I was talking about Jane's television career, not her movies. She made a few, but no biggies.
Both Aykroyd and Murray were later nominated for Oscars - Aykroyd for Driving Miss Daisy and Murray for Lost in Translation. http://www.videolog.tv/video.php?id=451266
Gilda and Steve Martin - a memorable moment.

Resolved Question: Carol, a detective with
with the detectives’ bureau. Carol is to learn the latest detection techniques. While in New York, Carol sees a woman who is wanted for murder in California. Carol asks her to lunch. Carol mentions that she is from California, but not that she is a police officer. The suspected murderer says she would like to see her family, but has no way to get to get back to California. Carol tells the woman she is going there and that she will be glad to take her. They leave New York City, and as they cross into California, Carol stops the car, tells the woman that she is under arrest, handcuffs her, and takes her back to the town where she is wanted. The woman’s attorney argues that the court has no jurisdiction. Can this argument validly be raised? Why or why not?
