«he truth is, though, that the adventure of sex and love, the real drama, is the property of the young. Love stories are stories about the beginning of life»

This is an interesting entry, but it reminds me a little bit of the three page memo (re-printed in Barry Williams' "Growing Up Brady") that Robert Reed wrote explaining precisely why he would not act in "The Hair-Brained Scheme."

Theorizing comedy is not the best idea; the fact of the matter is that Guest's ideas, his comic vision," has grown dated. He had a good run, but very few (any?) comics can be funny for much more than a decade. The careers of comics, in other words, have a time span roughly similar to those of professional baseball players.
