    This film has many great scenes but the one where they realize
    Fonda is sick is frightening and chilling in its scale.
    No American director of the last 50 years could dream of coming close.

    To the moderator. This post is a major spoiler and should be hidden, as there are many on this thread who have never seen this film.

    Then you quote the spoiler too instead of just reporting the post.;)

    Sorry didn't realize it was a spoiler. Sometimes you've seen a classic old movie so many times you assume everyone else has seen it too.

    True. Though it's hard to believe that anyone remotely interested in cinema doesn't know what rosebud is (Citizen Kane) or that the leading lady of a certain classic 1960 film is killed off at the halfway point. Whenever discussing certain films with friends, I ask "Have you seen it?" thereby alleviating the need to walk on eggshells when discussing the film.

    The one great thing about having a senior moment is that you get to enjoy that first-time viewing experience, all over again.:D

    It might as well have been Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? which broke the box office record when it opened at Radio City then went on to effectively end her film career.

    Actually, that's not so. Her last two films Where Were You When The Lights Went Out and With Six You Get Eggroll, both in 1968, were modest hits. Her film career ended when she found out her late husband had committed her to do a weekly series for CBS without her knowledge. To her credit, she could have tried to get out of it by going to court but she honored her husband's commitment. For the record, here are the dozen top grossing films of 1968 (as you see both Day's films just outside the top 10):

    1. 2001 A Space Odyssey
    2. The Odd Couple
    3. Bullitt
    4. Romeo And Juliet
    5. Planet Of The Apes
    6. Yours Mine And Ours
    7. Lion In Winter
    8. Green Berets
    9. Oliver!
    10 Finian's Rainbow
    11 With Six You Get Eggroll
    12 Where Were You When The Lights Went Out?

    really love this film. for those who've seen it, i'm curious-- what do you consider to be the

    climax of the film? would it be Julie's confession to the wife, or what happens afterward?

    I'm not sure how to tell you ... that's "fake news" there has been further research and it turns out

    Kane was really placing a deli order ...
    [​IMG]
    ;)

    I'm not sure how savvy audiences (at the time it was released) would have been as to the real meaning of Rosebud ...
    A reference to William Randolph Hearst's nickname for Marion Davies' um lower lady parts...
    Both of the Kane spoilers had been revealed before I saw the whole film.

    It more explained things that thanks to the rewind on the VCR* I could check out.

    *I recorded the "restored" version of Kane when it was on American Movie Classics. To quote John Hamm
    "It was just a channel that ran old movies [prior to "Mad Men..."

    BTW: The FIRST RULE of "Fight Club" is "Nobody Talks About Fight Club" :emoji_hushed:

    Such a question leans heavily towards being spoiler.
    Many thanks from us first-time viewers.:angry:

    Where is Funny Girl on that '68 list? I thought it was one of the biggest hits of the year.

    Ok I'll bring it back.

    In 1968 William Wyler directed Barbra Streisand to a best performance Oscar by an actress in Funny Girl.
    30 years previously in 1938 he directed Bette Davis to an Oscar for best performance by an actress in Jezebel.
