    I saw this story posted on CNN, which was too funny to pass up reading:

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/South/06/....ap/index.html

    But it reminded me of a drama that was made in the late 70's, around 1978 or 1979 with Marc Singer ("V", "Beastmaster") portraying the blind actor-singer Tom Sullivan. I forget the name of the film at the moment, but it had a hilarious moment in it that mirrored what happened in the above-linked CNN story:

    Police officer: "Let me get this straight, your friend is... blind?"
    Sullivan's friend: "More or less, yeah."
    Police officer: "Then why the hell is he driving?"
    Sullivan's friend: "'Cause he's the only one who's sober!"

    Can anyone help me with the title of the film? Thanks! [​IMG]
