Telling off the puppy...

My single favorite moment from The Great Race: Jack Lemmon, eye to eye with an adorable puppy: "I hate you."

And this in a scene where his character, Professor Fate, is winning. It's a great send-up of The Prisoner of Zenda, second only to Royal Flash. And it even has swordplay. It's been too long since I've fenced, and I really must get back into it. It really is the only sport I've ever enjoyed.

Meanwhile, if you can get past the fact that other than Hikaru Sulu, only the Great Leslie feels fencing bare-chested is a plan, here are Tony Curtis and Ross Martin in a pretty creditable bout.
