Something a little different today. I'm a fan of the website IMDB and often peruse the site to see where actors/actresses are from, how old they are, and, of course, what films they've been in. I looked up Molly Ringwald today and saw that in 1984, 1985 and 1986, she starred in "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," and "Pretty In Pink," respectively--three films that forever defined the "teen movie" genre. Anthony Michael Hall starred in "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," and "Weird Science." In both cases, these were three films they did consecutively. That's a pretty damn good run. But the actor who really blows me away is John Cazale, who famously played Fredo in The Godfather I and II. Cazale acted in only five films before passing away at 42--but what a Murder's Row of films it was: "The Godfather," "The Conversation," "The Godfather II," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "The Deer Hunter." Just amazing!
