    The official description (above) doesn't give a whole lot of information, does it Well, I guess that's where I come in! No worries, NO spoilers included!


    Lee Marvin and Oliver Reed in Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday

    This movie has an amazing ensemble cast, which also includes Strother Martin, Robert Culp, Elizabeth Ashley, Sylvia Miles, and Kay Lenz (as Thursday).

    The way the characters play off one another is brilliantly done, with even the slightest arch of an eyebrow liable to set you off in a fit of the giggles. Oliver Reed's half-Indian, in particular, had me rolling -- he truly steals every scene his is in, and that is saying a LOT when you consider how wonderful the casting is!

    I have seen this movie only twice, the last time being three years ago, and from a crappy VHS tape with a fuzzy picture. The movie is so memorable that I can still remember every scene with clarity, and just thinking about it makes me grin uncontrollably.

    The movie is rife with bawdy innuendo, but never crosses the line to where it could be considered vulgar (by me, at least! )

    If you've never seen Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday, you are in for a real treat. I highly recommend it... unless you don't care for laughter, in which case this movie would not appeal Wink
