Does the title "Dirty Dingus Mcgee" ring any bells? Never seen it myself, despite the delectable, late Michelle Carey being in it. The 1965 movie, the screenplay of which was written by Joseph Heller, he of "Catch-22" fame, was taken from the book "The Ballad of Dingus Magee," written by a favorite author of mine, the late, great David Markson. Sinatra plays Dingus. Carey plays Anna Hot Water. (Of course she does.)

        Olds, your post forces me to publicly confess to something I'm sure anyone who has known me for any amount of time is already aware of, but nevertheless, I have tried to hide. I have no culture. I am an... more

          uncultured, not if you've read "Catch 22" a bunch of times and laugh until you cry. I seldom laugh or cry when reading a book, but when I read "Catch-22" the first time, I surprised myself. (Philip Roth's... more
