Who the **** is Frank Slade? Because I laughed at Pacino in Scent of a Woman. Why would I remember anyone's name in that movie.

Actually, I probably didn't laugh, I probably gritted my teeth.

The role is only hammy because Pacino played it that way and his director wasn't strong enough to stop him.

I got the visit the set of that movie and watch dailies. The guy who sold the Lamborghini's was terrible and kept blowing his lines and Pacino just told them to keep rolling and he just kept playing the scene with the guy over and over in one take until he got it right.

No, I do understand that. That part has nothing to do with my review of the movie, just a little behind the scenes trivia. The car salesman comes off as super slick in the movie.

Another behind the scenes thing that was cool was the day I was there they were using a set that was a hotel room. To make it look like a real hotel room, they had these giant blow up photos of the actual buildings across the street from the real hotel. They were three stories high and were mounted so they had lights behind them. They had one for day and one for night. So when you were looking through the windows of the "hotel," it really looked like there were real buildings across the street.

Don't even get me started on him glorifying twice-convicted triple murderer in a film so that completely ignores reality. That was a slap in the face to everyone involved with that case not named Rubin Carter. F*ck Norman Jewison too. Anyone who has ever read anything about that case knows that he killed those people.

Actually Manchurian Candidate he was pretty good, as much not like himself as he's ever played.

Some think he's the best actor ever.

But hey, remember when Nancy Reagan presented the Best Picture?? And Barbara Bush? Those were two awesome shows.

her presence on screen wasn't the first time a first lady has taken part in the Hollywood extravaganza.

That honor—as far as my Internet sleuthing can find—goes to Laura Bush, who participated in this taped "What Do the Movies Mean to You?" segment for the 74th Academy Awards in 2002. (She shows up at around the 2:15 mark.)
