I saw the headlines about director Arthur Hiller dying
earlier, but it wasn't until Mark Harris tweeted this...
RIP Arthur Hiller. Nice man with a wonderfully up/down career. My faves: The Americanization of Emily, The In-Laws, Outrageous Fortune. 1/2— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) August 17, 2016
... that I paid attention -- let's all watch Outrageous Fortune tonight in his honor! It's been several years since I've seen that movie, which was a favorite as a kid (as were all the Bette Midler movies), but my first memory is of how hot Peter Coyote was in it...
... and looking around now I see that it's difficult to find good pictures of him in it online. I should work on that, right? But it always seemed reasonable to me that Bette & Shelley would be fighting so hard over that piece. Claw each other's eyes out, ladies! (Sidenote: Oh my god there is a DVD set of Outrageous Fortune + Down & Out in Beverly Hills + Ruthless People, I MUST OWN IT)
Anyway in related "hot guys in movies Arthur Hiller directed" news he also directed the film Making Love, the gay landmark starring Harry Hamlin and Michael Ontkean -- can you believe that I have never seen it? Should I watch finally that?
