Dig Thanksgiving ’69

  1. I said, “Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
    wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
    guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
    KILL, KILL.” And I started jumpin up and down yelling, “KILL, KILL,” and
    he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down
    yelling, “KILL, KILL.” And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
    sent me down the hall, said, “You’re our boy.”

    • Watching this has become a tradition for me. Penn must have got the Best Director nom for just two scenes: the “Songs For Aging Children” funeral and that incredible final tracking shot.

      Then saw Arlo Guthrierwith white wispy hair and beard at the Macy’s parade…

  2. I love that Penn and Pollack got noms that year even if neither Alice nor They Shoot Horses got BP nominations.
