    Anyone remember this movie? I believe it was released in 1969 or 1970 & starred Dick Van DYke, Micjey Rooney and Micheele Lee, directed by Carl Reiner. It was the story of the rise and fall of a silent era film star. A small film, but one of Reiner's better ones. I'd love to see again, but it appears to be only available in VHS, if you can find a used copy...Oh, well, just have to keep hoping!

    The Comic is one of my favourite films, though it rarely gets mentioned anywhere. Dick Van Dyke is excellent in the lead. I had a VHS recording from network TV, but my wife recorded over the top of it.... She has never lived it down.

    It sounds like you've forgiven your wife...to a degree. I feel your pain!
