    I saw this movie when it was first (and lastly) released in a Times Square movie theatre within a block or two of the Nathan’s shown in the last screen shot. I don’t remember anything about it besides O’Toole’s bushy haircut (mullet?), and am looking forward to seeing it again and listening to the commentary track by Martyn Burke. Thanks!
