A buddy & I were discussing this today. You know,parts in movies that you couldn't imagine being played by anyone else. My all-time favorite might be Ted Knight as Judge Schmales in "Caddyshack". We also had to give kudos to Jackie Gleason in "Smokey & the Bandit".Got any favorites? Seems I can always name a dozen until I really want to,then the mind goes blank. :confused:

Might be a kids movie, but I've always found his performance in it priceless-Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka

I always liked Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. He was real. He was cool, smart and messed up quite a bit. Just like me. :D

Shinerman, downing number 3 as we speak!

Newman was great in Cool Hand Luke. Which reminds me he was also great in "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid"(Who are those guys?).

Loved Paxton as Hicks.

Classic Characters in the movies

I always thought Thomas Banacek in Mystery movie series he shared with Columbo and Macmillan and Wife, he found the impossibe for a 10% finders fee. Some of those capers I would have never thought of, George Pepard was a classy/classic character for he used his last name except for the art dealer Felix who called him Thomas. My favorite "$500,000 a Page" with Stella Stevens in her prime also. I have all of his episodes on VHS tapes when we were allowed, to copy movies of our paid for monthly cable bill. :)

Gerusela Braumley

I am not sure if the spelling is correct but I am look for the name Gerusela Braumley. My boss gives me a different name everyday and today it is Gerusela Braumley. He bet me, I could not find out what movie this name came from. Can anyone help me?
