Rats, I was hoping for Saturday manatees.

I've never seen "Putney Swope", but Danny Peary wrote about it in his "Guide for the Film Fanatic". I guess I'll have to check it out now.

No Obligations Editor:
Well, you don't have to, but it should kill 90 mins. while you're at work (if not working).

Don't think we've seen it all the way through since the early '70s, & don't remember that much thereof, but we were compelled enough to re-watch the the first 20 or so mins. upon discovering it on the Tube.

Sadly, didn't seem that dated. To us. No guarantees for those of a later generation. (Can't you people ever be on time? A whole generation of ten o'clock scholars. Geeze.)

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
