Humphrey Bogart is the man!

I'm watching Casablanca at the moment. Has there ever been a greater model for manhood than Rick Blaine?

Tough, self-sufficient, cynical, romantic, likes a drink. I could go on. That's who I want to be when I grow up!


I bought a DVD of Dracula last week - the 1979 one, starring Frank Langella as Dracula and Laurence Olivier as Van Helsing. A very good film. But I've started to think now that maybe someone should make a new version with Danny Dyer playing the Count. (I'm not sure I need the "o".) Just imagine it! It would be a comedy classic, with lines like: 'Ere, mate, do you mind if I take a bite out of your missus?'
