While reading the movie calendar and waiting for Aliens – the 20th anniversary showing – to begin:
Me: Oh, look. They’ll be showing a movie with Peter Cushing in it.
Brian: Yes, I think he’s in several they’ll be showing.
Me: He was Grand Moff Tarkin in Star Wars.
Brian: Well, yes, but he was part of the whole Hammer Horror set of films.
Me: And look! There’s another movie with Christopher Lee in it.
Brian: Yes, he was in the same set of films with Peter Cushing.
Me: He was Count Dooku AND Darth Tyranus in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3.
Brian: There really are other films beside Star Wars on which to base your actor references.
Me: Well, here’s one with Jack Palance and he wasn’t in Star Wars.
Brian: No, he was in Le mepris.
Me: And City Slickers.
