Come on, surely we can get more posts here than the same thread in the Other Forum. I mean, have you seen what kind of idiots hang out over there?

Even though it was obvious this was coming, that line was and still is hysterically funny and I think it is one of the funniest moments in film. While very much a product of its time (taken in the context of Marcel's body of work), I understand why younger people would not "get it" beyond the contrasting humor of a mime having the only speaking part.

I wasn't familiar with Marceau's personal background. Thanks for the info. Very touching.
