Not that it matters, but wouldja believe I was thinking The Fountainhead and typed Atlas Shrugged? A textbook case of Rand-om confusion.

Ouch. 

Well, anyone who can relate Y,M, & Dupree and The Fountainhead in a trivia question has my vote.   My answer was a WAG and doesn't hold up when you match those roles to the original description.

OK another OTW one, in what three (there may be more) roles does Dustin Hoffman do the exact same limp? (No, walking in heels in Tootsie isn't one.)

   This one is best for DH fans, no?  Only one I can come up with -- and everyone else too probably -- are we looking for  Midnight Cowboy's limp?

Yeah, Midnight Cowboy would be one.

1. Ratso

2.  Jack Crabbe? (seems like he's injured in Little Big Man, maybe limps)

3.  (name?) in Marathon Man, when he's fleeing the evil Nazi dentist?

He was an excellent driver in Rain Man.  That's about all I know.

Benjamin Braddock did some running, but I don't recall limping.

Thanks, all, for responses and OK, maybe they weren't all limps, strictly speaking, but the walk in Little Big Man, Midnight Cowboy and Rain Man looked very much alike to me (and apparently did to youse guys as well).

Hoffman might also limp in Marathon Man, but I'm not 100 percent sure of that.

Hoffman is also a handy guy in playing the Kevin Bacon Game, since he has only one degree of separation in "Sleepers" and he has appeared in so many films in his career.

Speaking of "limp."

 Cool Cool Cool

Jbot, LOL your erased posting in response to my (now erased) posting.  We had a moment there, man, and then I blew it -- used the wrong emoticon and oh how I wish I could take it back.  Have to remember, just because the emoticon is there, you don't have to use it.  We depend on men in missile silos not to deploy a certain something just because it's available and they hold the code books and the keys.  For the safety of the forum, I follow now in their footsteps.

Actually, Barton, I agree with your original post... the one you erased. Why erase it?

Your comment about somebody spiraling downward seemed appropriate to me.

I thought your use of emoticons was clever and made your point very well.

The way you used emoticons to show how somebody was sprialing downward that day.

There's no need to apologize for being truthful and to the point.

Just because the truth hurts... that doesn't mean you have to erase it.

Cheers  Puget

Emoticons tell the truth. For example:


“ puget continues to redefine the "douchebag"

Pug,

my erasure-comment posting was entirely in jest.  Part of an ongoing satirical take on emoticons-as-hard-drugs.   As was the posting I erased. 

Your ongoing conflict with Jbot is no concern of mine.
