'Running' With Linklater

Houston's very own Richard Linklater will return to his hometown next week to wrap up the Movies Houstonians Love series at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. He'll introduce one of his personal faves -- Vincente Minnelli's Some Came Running (that's right, the one where Dean Martin wears his hat while relaxing in the bathtub) -- at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, in the Brown Auditorium Theater of the MFAH's Caroline Wiess Law Building.

BTW: MFAH's second annual Movies Houstonians Love series kicked off in October with former Houston Astros star pitcher, manager and announcer Larry Dierker’s presentation of Casablanca, followed by former First Lady Barbara Bush’s introduction of Life is Beautiful and rapper Bun B's appearance for Style Wars. All of which proves once again that, yes, cinema really is a universal language

Hey pallie, like watchin' Dino in the tub wearin' his hat would be like worth the total price of admission. Never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool. Oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth.

You left out DENTON COOLEY who introduced CATCH 22 (only in his intro he said Brando and I am sure he meant Sheen) ...
