Alan Arkin Film Festival

Alan Arkin, one of my favorite actors, is currently starring in Little Miss Sunshine (haven’t seen it). To celebrate, we are kicking off an Alan Arkin film festival here at chez mere with two Arkin movies that are in our Netflix queue. The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming (1966) is in the house, and Wait Until Dark (1967) is timed to arrive right around Halloween. Oooh, scary.


Tony, I have to say that the day Little Miss Sunshine goes on sale, I'm buying it. And Alan Arkin has a lot to do with it...he is a great foil in that movie, and a curmudgeon of the highest order. Fun stuff. Sounds like a great Film Fest.

oh man, Little Miss Sunshine was incredible. i'm definitely gonna buy that one once it comes out.

Wasn't he in the movie where Audrey Hepburn played a blind woman? That was a great flick.

Sparky, Yep, that was him. Wait Until Dark.
