Danny, speaking as a veteran fisherperson (yes I know it is a witless and
pointless pursuit....I just can't stop...*sob*) in order to land the big
ones you will need to use better bait. You see, messing-up a movie title
was a good idea, and subtle too, but people just don't care much about
movies. You need to hit 'em where they live (eg. Jon Papai's "Blow Jays"
However, to make you feel better: you st*p*d f*ck*ng b*st*rd, that was
On the BEACH! On the *BEACH*!!!!!

Well, there was the part where Brando lamented his lost chance to
own a fish ranch - "I coulda been a cod tender".
And the part where the Diet Pepsi bottle tapped out "Arnie", "Arnie"
over and over in Morse.

That movie is "On the Beach". On the waterfront has Brando and Karl Malden
and is about dockyard workers and a priest.
Based upon the book of the same name. Can't seem to remember the author.
He also wrote "Trustee from the Tool Room", "The Pied Piper", etc.

The geographical center of Boston is in Roxbury. Due north of the center we
find the South End. This is not to be confused with South Boston which lies
directly east from the South End. North of the South End is East Boston and
southwest of East Boston is the North End. ab...@cornell.edu
He also wrote 'A town like Alice' which, like 'On the Beach' is set in
Austria. It was distressing in the extreme to read this book as it
kept referring to 'gators. Not that I have anything against 'gators (little
or otherwise) it's just that they only live in the Americas. Every where
else, including australia, they have crocodiles. No self respecting
Aussie would ever talk about a 'gator.

A friend of mine from university days used to claim his first
name (see if you can guess it from The Clue (sm)) was spelled
"Rod3ger" - but the "3" was silent. I was amazed at the number
of sweet young things that seemed to believe him. What a line!
