A couple weeks ago, I watched The Alphabet Murders, starring Tony Randall, and written by Agatha Christie. It was funny and I liked it a lot better than I thought I would. The main character, of course, is Poirot, an answer that came in handy during trivia that same week, so now all my trivia people think I'm super smart.
Today Parker and I watched The History of the World, Part 1. This was written by and stars Mel Brooks, and has lots of other people-- Gregory Hines, Bea Arthur, and lots of others. I will admit that the French Revolution part of the movie kinda bored me and I wound up getting distracted and basically missed the ending of that particular segment, but the "Coming Attractions" for "Part 2" (which does not exist, Arrested Development style) were really funny. Another admission-- it starts Madeline Kahn, whom at first I thought was the new star of ABC's Revenge. But its not. That's her:
Madeline Stowe-- Also, if you aren't watching Revenge, you are a flat out terrible person. That show is awesome. I don't even want you reading this blog. Seriously, get off here. NOW.
But this is Madeline Kahn:
She's been in a bunch of stuff too, but I've been mixing those two women up for many years. But the kicker? Both of whom I've in all actuality been mixing up with this lady:
For years, I watched La Femme Nikita on USA and I loved that show. This lady was one of the main characters and for years, when I would see the name Madeline Kahn or Madeline Stowe, I would think of her and look for her on the screen. Up and until... today. About 15 minutes ago. Even when I watched The History of the World, Part 1, and I saw the name "Madeline Kahn" in the credits, I thought this person would be in there. I looked for her. I couldn't find her. I decided that since this movie was older, I just didn't recognize her. Until 15 minutes ago when I looked this up on imdb.com for my blog (you have no idea how much research goes into these blogs.). Then I realized exactly who Madeline Kahn is, and then I looked up Madeline Stowe. Imagine my surprise that the woman whom I've been thinking of all these years, is in fact...
Alberta Watson. Yeah, not even Madeline. She did, however, play Madeline in La Femme Nikita. See how smart you get when you read my blog? Imagine how smart you'd be if you WROTE my blog.
