David Huddleston has passed away this week. This saddens me a whole lot, he was a great actor in some really good movies. Many of you would know him as The Big Lebowski character in the movie itself. But he was known for so many more things. T.V. notwithstanding I thought I would do what I could to give him a proper send off, marathon style.Rio Lobo (1970):The last film directed by Howard Hawks, "the greatest director that isn't a household name" has John Wayne defending his town from outlaws. A very fun movie that was simple and beautiful in filming. Minutes Left in the Day: 1,326Norwood (1970): A decently feel good movie that reunited Kim Darby and Glen Campbell from their time on True-Grit, it's about a man who travels across America after his time in Vietnam. His goal is to play music on a radio show and he meets some very interesting people along the way. Minutes Left in the Day: 1,230Bad Company (1972): Written and Directed by Robert Benton, this movie is about two young men (one played by Jeff Bridges) who are draft dodgers and try to make money on the frontier. It succeeds in downplaying many myths about the old west, including one about how difficult it was to rob people ravaged by the war. Minutes Left in the Day: 1,137The Klansman (1974): Lee Marvin and O.J. Simpson star in this movie about racism and rape in the seventies. Really intense movie that, while really good, one needs to be in the mood for... a lot. Minutes Left in the Day: 1,025Blazing Saddles (1974): One of the best spoof movies of all time, this movie was directed by Mel Brooks and has a whole slew of stars, not limited to Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder and Slim Pickens. While VERY dated, a fun movie to revisit every other year or so. Minutes Left in the Day: 930Zero to Sixty (1978): A very interesting tv movie. I don't usually put tv movies on here, but this one has almost the exact same premise as Repo Man, a movie released six years later. Slightly more funny, but still has some big serious parts in it. Minutes Left in the Day: 829Gorp (1980): A Jewish camp comedy starring Dennis Quaid and Fran Drescher. In and around the timeframe of the movie Meatballs, this is not nearly as good and falls slightly short. Minutes Left in the Day: 739Smokey and the Bandit II (1980): Sequel to a classic action comedy, this one is... a movie as well. Tough for me to enjoy as I didn't really like the first one. Minutes Left in the Day: 639Santa Clause: The Movie (1985): I put this movie in because the guy plays Santa Clause. That's a pretty big role. Minutes Left in the Day: 531Life with Mikey (1993): A comedy with Michael J. Fox about a child star turned child star talent agent who discovers "the next big thing", but she's a little rough around the edges. Minutes Left in the Day: 440Joe's Apartment (1996): The very first MTV produced film stars Jerry O'Connell as a guy who moves into an apartment ridden with cockroaches that talk to him. 77 minutes long, this movie isn't great, but I mean... started a pretty big production company. Minutes Left in the Day: 363The Big Lebowski (1998): Maybe his most well known role, he plays the Big Lebowski as I said. It's a semi convoluted cult classic about a guy who has someone piss on his rug and his quest for justice! Also, has nihilists. Minutes Left in the Day: 246The Producers (2005): A remake about two producers who comedically try again and again to make a hit broadway musical. Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane and Uma Thurman star. Minutes Left in the Day: 112The guy really has a range to his movies, this was a fun marathon that has me fondly remembering the man. I hope you had fun as well.
