The Medicine Show Answers Hollywood's Burning Questions
If there's anything a truly great work of art can teach you, it's something you didn't know about yourself. I don't know what that means, but it certainly sounds like something that a film critic would say. Not that we here at the Medicine Show are film critics. We're just here to answer the great questions Hollywood has posed to us over the years:
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (1967)
Sydney Portier is coming to dinner, as the black fiancee dating the daughter of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in this comedy that tested racial barriers long before its time.
How Green Was My Valley? (1941)
Very green, in this touching portrait of a coal-mining family at the turn of the century in a small Welsh Village. He was stern. She was gentle. Together they hoped against hope that their sons would find better lives.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
Judge Doom. He wasn't a real person. He was a crazy cartoon dressed up as a person.
What's Love Got to do With It? (1993)
Not a lot, actually.
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
She's holding her handicapped sister hostage in a small room because she's jealous that her fame burned out and her sister's so beloved. I told you that bitch crazy.
Whose Line is it Anyway? (1998)
It's Wayne Brady's line. Wait your damn turn until he's done singing.
Who's Harry Crumb? (1989)
That's a great question. He looks a lot like John Candy, but he's got a moustache. I saw Stripes, and I can assure you that John Candy does NOT have a moustache.
What's Happening? (1976)
Oh, gotta drop this check by the gas company, then I'll probably grab some chinese. Want to come?
About Last Night...(1986)
I wondered when you were going to bring that up. Look, sometimes when I drink a lot I pee on myself. It's embarrassing.
It Happened One Night (1934)
I wish. No, it's happened a few times. My doctor says I have a nervous bladder.
What's Happening Now? (1985)
You just asked me that. I really need to get to the gas company before they close.
Do the Right Thing (1989)
You're right. I probably need to jet. I don't want my gas turned off.
It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
Yeah, it is.
Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
Okay. We can hit that Aerosmith Concert, when is that?
9 1/2 Weeks (1986)
Right. I'll look into Ticketmaster.
You Can't Take It With You (1938)
I'm going to. It's not your pen. It was sitting here when we got here.
Goodbye, Mister Chips (1939)
