  2:04pm WM:

Now I remember... Stanley Kauffmann, long time film critic for The New Republic, wrote a very complimentary review of Payday when it first came out in 1973. Kauffmann could be a tough critic, but he had a knack for picking out overlooked, under-publicized films. Of Rip Torn's performance he writes "Torn's singer is an aging professional Tom Sawyer now hip, hopped up, and horny."

Lapel button, fridge magnet, bumper sticker, custom cover for your bongos, I could see snotty beatnik branded espresso cups, for the carriage trade.

Speaking of elevator operators, one of the best Fred Willard lines was him on "Fernwood 2night," seeing a chick in tight pants, ask "How do you get into those pants?"
