March of the Penguins - the films of Danny Devito or Burgess Meredith

Bit like Grumpy Old Men seeing as Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, Ossie Davis and Burgess Meredith are all dead but at least they were old
So, I'm talking with buddy of mine today, we've known each other since high school, and he says; "Remember Grumpy Old Men?" Me; "How could I forget!? Loved it. Classic scene in produce when Burgess Meredith bragged to Sophia Loren's mama about "zucchini" and such." Buddy, after a long pause; "Dude, TMI you goofball. What I MEANT was when we get old which one would you be? Matthau or Jack Lemmon?" Me; "No brainer. You are definitely Matthau. Crazy like a fox. But get this you putz, I got Ann-Margaret AND the fish." :)
Weekly Guilty Pleasure = watching old BATMAN reruns! Two things occur to me: (1) Cesar Romero, Julie Newmar, Burgess Meredith, Frank Gorshin MADE the show with their performances...Romero especially great with facial reactions in white face makeup (2) After all these years I still can't figure out how BATPOLES would work. Going down...how would pants get removed, and going up...how would pants be put on?
Good morning to ALL of you action junkies. Rick here again. Well yesterday was pretty cool, meeting with Mr. R. Lee Ermey. Receiving a photo of him signed to me was equally cool, which I get to add to my collection of autographed photos of Hollywood movie stars. In that collection are photos of Lauren Bacall, Paul Newman, Burgess Meredith, Julie Newmar, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Samuel L. Jackson, Val Kilmer, Kevin Spacey, and Sam Elliott to name a few. As stated before, I have been a movie buff for quite some time and the fact that we have a CHANCE at watching MY books BECOME a film is something I have DREAMED of. WHEN filming begins I am looking forward to bein' on the set as technical advisor and simply WATCHING my story be acted out physically. Enjoy your weekend, Rick
forgot how funny burgess Meredith was in Grumpy Old Men.

Waking up early is always good when you turn on tv and Grumpy Old Men is on. Burgess Meredith has the best one liners.
Watching Grumpy Old Men.. Burgess Meredith is just plain hilarious!
Sometimes I wish I could lock myself in a vault and spend all of my time reading, like Burgess Meredith in that famous episode of "The Twilight Zone." (But, of course, we all know how that turned out.)
Cry with me. Such an amazing truthful speech by Burgess Meredith :

Has anyone here seen the movie Burnt Offerings (1976)?
I can decide whether I like someone by asking them one simple question: "What do you know Burgess Meredith from?"
Last night I was gathering initials from my married bridesmaids for some embroidered gifts. Interestingly enough, some of them kept their middle name and some dropped their middle name and moved their maiden name into the slot. I think since I'm the last part of my family I'll keep my entire name and just be Julie Michelle Adams Gray. I just had no idea there was no universal rule about the name thing.
A video using clips from the classic Twilight Zone episode 'It's a Good Life' and the new Twilight Zone sequel 'It's Still a Good Life.' Song is, of course, ...

You know, just watching Burgess Meredith account for an ancient Native American shaman fetus-tumor growing on somebody's back.
Generally, not a fan of amazon; prefer bookstores. Generally not a fan of e-readers; prefer books. Both of those facts have changed, just since last night. Looks like I'm going to be buying a kindle (and Food Network chef cookbooks) from amazon before too much longer.
Friends, the Rooster is right around the corner. This Monday, March 4, 2013, the Morning News Tournament of Books, presented by NOOK® by Barnes & Noble, officially begins. (If you…
Yep, a very weird one tonight lol Aliens make Burgess Meredith real strong then real smart.
Don't ask Burgess Meredith's character in that Twilight Zone episode and breaking his glasses!
Alright fine, but if he's carrying the bones of Burgess Meredith around with him, acting out an old scene, I'd run.
Hard to tell if I'm breaking down the budget, or if it's breaking down me. At any rate, I'm quitting for the day and going to watch THE SENTINEL (1977).
We all just need shouted at by Burgess Meredith once in a while; ..that works too.
So, is Nurmi's talking to just like Burgess Meredith talking to ROCKY between rounds?

I am so tired of television, there are great things on. I record at least 80 shows week. Don't want to watch any of it. Movies can't sit thru one hardly. I've got Netflix, HBO, On Demand, DVR and a big screen. I think I know how Burgess Meredith felt.
Christina Anne Banks and I were talking about our favorite episode of The Twilight Zone the other night. Mine was "Eye Of The Beholder" and hers was "Living Doll". What is everyone elses favorite?
anybody remember that Twilight Zone episode where the guy just wants to read his books... I feel like that guy today. and my broken glasses are all the papers I need to grade.
Jack Nicholson was channeling an altogether different Batman villain last night: Burgess Meredith's The Penguin
Sylvester Stallone may make another “Rocky.". Don’t be surprised if when Rocky gets knocked down you hear, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up."

Wonderful day at worship yesterday. But we all had cravings for doughnut holes! Curse you Malison!
"biography legenda MCBilly Meredith" William (Billy) Meredith was born in Black Park, Wales on 28th July 1874. He worked as a coal-miner and played local football for Chirk. At the age of 18 he signed as an amateur with Northwich Victoria. An extremely talented outside right he joined Manchester City in 1894. The following year he won his first international cap for Wales. However, he continued to work underground during the week until 1896, when his club finally insisted that he give up his colliery job. The fans loved the skills of Meredith and was dubbed the "Welsh Wizard" by his admirers. In the 1898-99 season Billy Meredith helped Manchester City win promotion to the First Division of the Football League. He scored four hat-tricks and ended up the season with 29 goals. Billy Gillespie was also prolific that season and added 17 to the 18 he scored the previous season. Manchester City did not find it easy in its first season in the top division and finished in eighth place. The following season was eve ...
Nicholson is possessed by the Ghost of Burgess Meredith! Wack waaack wack.
Streisand looks like the woman that Burgess Meredith got into a fight with in Foul Play.
Right now before i go to work later,im watching Clash of the Titans (1981) with Burgess Meredith and Sir Laurence Oliver. A good old school flick and a hot cup of coffee.
Our limo FINALLY pulls up at the red carpet. Burgess Meredith still milking his ‘Penguin’ tuxedo collection.
We have a VERY grumpy man in this house right now.and it is not from the race.
As you contemplate the Oscar winners and losers tonight, consider this: The contenders for Best Picture in 1976 included the now-legendary, classic films "Taxi Driver," "Network" and "All the President's Men," but the film that one that year was "Rocky." Just keep that in mind when you see how many awards "Argo" wins...
Who is the actor, the bad guy in ripper street?
Burgess Meredith guest starred. The story had a superb twist and awesome ending.
watching the end of " Grumpy Old Men" the out takes are awesome Burgess Meredith is hilarious god rest his soul
Next week's episode is the first in our series on the masters of the craft entitled "Horror Icon: Christopher Lee", but who would be YOUR Horror Icon and why?
I just think of "Grumpy Old Men"testing for levels of Schmidt beer in Burgess Meredith. Drug testing in ice fishing?
It's a work of art. Rachel Roberts. Burgess Meredith. out of control and in great form. Hilarious car chase.
Aah that rules. Also, Burgess Meredith must've been doing lots of this kinda stuff. He was in Burnt Offerings w/Karen Black.
Just watching the Twilight Zone episode "Printer's Devil" and I'm just realizing now how amazing it was to have Burgess Meredith all those years: Twilight Zone, Batman, Rocky, Clash of the Titans, Grumpy Old Men. What a great character actor.
Just finished watching the Batman TV show on MeTV. They can snag high-profile stars to play villains for the big screen, but for I don't think anyone will ever top the classic TV cast. Frank Gorshin (Riddler), Caesar Romero (Joker), Burgess Meredith (Penguin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) created the roles and made them their own. Jim Carrey did a shameless Gorshin impersonation in Batman Forever, and Danny Devito was just incredibly gross as the Penguin in Batman Returns. both Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway were good Catwomen, but they'd get eaten alive by Julie Newmar. Not even Oscar heavyweights like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger could beat Romero's Joker. And has there ever been a better Robin than Burt Ward? I don't think so!
About to watch the worst Batman movie of all time. Hint: Bane's in it.
Cesaer Romaro,Burgess Meredith,and Frank Gorshin played great villians!
Without question, the BEST episode of Twilight Zone is the 1 with William Shatner...
I dare say that Rod Serling is a better narrator then even Morgan Freeman. I dare you to find one better for the part. Too bad he is long passed.
Movie quote of the day... "Catch that chicken Rock"! If you can catch a chicken, u can catch anything"! "Oh come on *** I feel like a Kentucky fried *** ! Burgess Meredith and Sylvester Stallone in "Rocky".
Holy spinning film reels!! Who is going to a theatrical showing of Batman - The Movie (1966), you know the one with Adam West, Burt Ward, Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, and Lee Meriwether, then going to be part of a Q&A with Adam West and Burt Ward next Thursday? THIS GUY!! SO PHRICKEN AWESOME!!
Watching the 1st Rocky film.Think Burgess Meredith is great as Rockys trainer.
Have you seen Argo or Beasts if the Southern Wild? Two movies I'm interested in seeing. Both are nominated for Oscars...
I get Josh Brolin and Josh Grobin mixed up. which one sings.
I feel like Burgess Meredith . . . before his glasses broke.
Danny Devito played the best Penguin in BMRs. If the Penguin ever hits the big screen again, it's hard to imagine anyone playing him better.
I’m going to be like Burgess Meredith in Grumpy Old Men.
I understand. I guess I'm a fan of the classics, re: Burgess Meredith
About the only thing you can really say about the Adam West Batman is that it had the best Penguin. Burgess Meredith > Danny Devito.
How can people talk trash on Cleveland?! We gave the world Paul Newman, Burgess Meredith (Mickey from Rocky), &
Speaking as the man behind the bird behind the tux, I would like to waffle about how I like to portray and play Penguin and why I prefer to do it that way. First of all, the Penguin portrayed by Nolan North in Arkham City, is my favourite portrayal of Penguin to date. Why? He is "British" for a start, and he is more or less portrayed as a cockney gangster (If you look further into it he's American but he grew up in London). His voice is rough, charmless and squawky. Which is interesting because by the way he dresses the Penguin is obviously trying to play the gentleman, denying the fact that he isn't in any sense of the word. This brings me on to my next point, the North Penguin is absolutely riddled with insecurity, which brings depth to the character. He feels the need to be admired because he had always been an outcast in his family, he fails to compete with the likes of Bruce Wayne and so the only way he can achieve attention and respect is through fear. He does this in the most brutal and blunt sense ...
Please allow me to introduce myself, I am a .
Dear Doves; Examination of Satan's behavior leads me to conclude that he was the first progressive liberal. He told himself, and believed, that he was entitled to full individual liberty. He had no need of God anymore!! Since he was obviously the first salesman as well, he told the rest of the heavenly host, that given the power, he would enforce social justice and that they could reform their careers without having to serve anyone but themselves. Self centered, narcissistic and ego driven, he promised a new order of control, governed the way he idealized things should be. Two-thirds of Almighty God's Angels must have been amazed that rebellion was established upon such a twisted perception of self worth. These days, I feel like Burgess Meredith, who in an old Twilight Zone, found himself "obsolete" by the fascists who controlled the government. I am clinging to Jesus like a drowning man, whose ship of state has foundered and is going down. That ship was named "The Word of Truth" and I did not appreciate ...
Cold day in T.O. Warm up to "Cold Comfort, Rocky story of Deathmatch. Will you be my Burgess Meredith?...

In the words of the late great Burgess Meredith, it's colder than a witches titty out there!
Good morning. Ever see the old Twilight Zone "The Obsolete Man" with Burgess Meredith?
its butt cold out here and I'm all outta beer. - Burgess Meredith lol
Warning. I start fasting in 15 minutes. Steer clear. This has been a warning.
burgess meredith had the most substantial role I thought
I am king of the cliche for the day...I was in the produce aisle today, and as we're two women searching for salad fixin's.two kinds of lettuce, mushrooms.etc...I was selecting green onions when they came over and chose one of the cucumbers on display, though they complained they were not English cucumbers.as they walked back to their shopping cart.I noticed English cucumbers were right in front of me.so I chose one and approached the women, apologizing for the impending cliche, and then I held out the cucumber and said, "excuse me, would you ladies prefer mine? ".there we were, the three of us, blushing like red potatoes!
To my friends in the Pasadena area: Remember books? Those things with pages you had to turn - not swipe? My friend Ann Leary has written a great book called THE GOOD HOUSE, and she'll be at Vroman's in Pasadena doing a read and sign next Tuesday night, February 26th. If I'm still on this coast, I'm going to be there. How about you? She's a great, brave writer - and she's put up with Denis for a lot of years. For that reason alone, doesn't she deserve your support? Event begins at 7PM. Be there!
The book is amazing but this little movie sent my heart aflutter and made me cry it was so beautiful. The music was just so prefect for it and made the whole thing just come alive. More people should see this.
The only thing I've been able to contribute to this morning's info retrieval class is that, in Rocky, Mickey is played by Burgess Meredith.

With all the windows in my house, if I sit in the middle of my living room in this weather, it's like I'm in a reverse snow globe. (Was that an episode of The Twilight Zone? Maybe with Burgess Meredith?)
Watching Grumpier Old Men... I love this movie...except the part where Burgess Meredith dies.
Burgess Meredith played Madison in a film and his Penguin was an awful lot like an FDR impression ;-) Judges?
Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford to return for intergalactic Grumpy Old Men 3. Burgess Meredith respectfully declined from the grave
Says Terri, "Burgess Meredith and Ginger Rogers getting all dolled up on the set of Magnificent Doll (1946)."
Burgess Meredith was the best Penguin ever and Burt Ward was the best Robin.
Still say Cheney looks like the penguin from the old Batman TV series...sorry Burgess Meredith
The penguin (60's batman) and the *** (Rocky) are the same actor. My mind is blown!
Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men, no matter how often you watch them they never get old. All the one liners and Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau were a great duo. You couldn't of picked a better person then Burgess Meredith to rattle off the one liners.
Watching Grumpy Old Men.what a classic. Burgess Meredith has some of the best one liners
Owen and I just got done watching Rocky IV ( one more to go) .and I thought of a trivia question : "Of all the main characters in the Rocky movies.who was in all 5 Rocky movies" ???
Len Maltin game category idea: March of the Penguins, films featuring either Danny Devito or Burgess Meredith.
z My luck will be to have Burgess Meredith glasses.
It's worth watching for the Burgess Meredith scenes alone.
Day of the locust w/ Burgess Meredith and Karen Black love the vary I'm this. Donald Sutherland plays a character named Homer Simpson
Tribute to Burgess Meredith (Mickey): via Great little insight into Mickey
Today we celebrate the original Penguin, Burgess Meredith:
Torture Garden is a 1967 British horror film made by Amicus Productions. It was directed by Freddie Francis and scripted by Robert Bloch. It stars Burgess Me...
Has our generation become way too suspicious about the intentions of adults toward children in movies? Watching a horror movie called Burnt Offerings where an elderly Burgess Meredith is watching a young lad out a window. First thought above all others was 'don't go near him kid...probably a peadophile'. I just know I'll feel guilty about my accusation later when he saves the family. If I were watching The Shining or Karate Kid for the first time nowadays, I'd probably point the same finger at Scatman Crothers and Pat Morita...
I'm sure most everyone is asleep by now, and I should be too, but there is a really good Twilight Zone on Sci-Fi. FYI yal. Night!
"I'm a human being! I exist! And if i speak one thought aloud, that thought exists! Even after I'm shoveled into my grave." - Burgess Meredith.
Just watched an episode of the old Twilight Zone series in a church class this morning (yep, you heard right), called "The Obsolete Man." Supposed to be fictitious, it's more real than anybody knows. It has to do with the "State" declaring one man, a librarian (Burgess Meredith), "OBSOLETE" because he no longer serves the state (as there are no more books at that time). Is this really so far-fetched? I think not. Did you know that in England right now they are starving some old people to death because they have out-served their usefulness? And with Obamacare around the corner, there are "death panels" (not their "Official name" I'm sure) being set up to make similar decisions. The bottom line is that Christians need to stand up for the value of human life - ALL life - or not complain when we are sentenced to death for being "obsolete."
Final round.I've got onE more set of free tickets to give away.which of these celebs are from the cleveland area.,Northeast Ohio ..grew up here counts. Dr. Oz, Robert Patrick, Tracy Chapman, Nina Blackwood, Ed O'neall, Boz Scaggs, Fred Willard, Joel Grey, Jack Parr, Debra Winger, Al Roker, Burgess Meredith or Jim Backus. At least three are correct
wow that is a Burgess Meredith type Batman getup...
can someone bring back Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthua, and Burgess Meredith
Watching 1939 "Of Mice And Men" unless I fall asleep. Hard to see Burgess Meredith as anyone but The Penguin.
Agreed. When power went out, I was content w/books. Felt like Burgess Meredith in Twilight Zone episode. lol
Adrienne tells Rocky to go out and win.
new live video by Burgess Meredith, they made it just for you
This is Episode 1 of our live music series, "From The Other Room". Stay tuned for more episodes to come soon! We'll be doing alternate versions of both our s...
When I get old I'll probably end up looking like and being just like Burgess Meredith in Rocky II.

Hubs is watching The Penguin Goes Straight--so fun to see Burgess Meredith in action.
i gotta say Burgess Meredith's Penguin speaks to me.
Sam Cassel looks like a cross between Burgess meredith and E.T.
Just channel surfing, and I found an episode of the old.Batman series. Even better, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin!
After all these years of watching old Batman episodes I just now realized that Burgess Meredith played the original Penguin
Home! The only comment I can make regarding pneumonia is to quote Burgess Meredith in the movie, "Foul Play" when he said, "That was one tough, Mama."
Burgess Meredith as The Penguin on the ' 66 show was amazing.
I'm currently going through my annual FB Spring-Cleaning a bit early this year. I'm just unfriending the least active players in my circle, and of course the nuisances. Quite tedious, but definitely achievable. I suggest that everyone do this on a regular basis. It will enhance your FB experience, and will also open more cyber road-space, so that your statuses can be seen by more of your meaningful friends. Family members are definitely not exempt from this elimination process. No nepotism, sorry. If you're invaluable, out you go, bye!
Our Paraguay show with Burgess Meredith and Other Lovers was so fun last night. Will Rhodes did sound - and I gotta say ,good sound gives you the wings to fly.
So last night's channel surfing landed me on Grumpy Old Men..My kids had never scene it(why would they have) I forgot how great of a movie and a team those two were/are..My kids loved it also..From now on if I refer to anyhone as a schmuck or putz it is being sent with love...R.I.P. you comedic giants!!
The fears of that Burgess Meredith Twilight Zone episode either. (Just in case, I have a plastic magnifier)
That's Burgess Meredith there... overacting.. vreep vreep
Tomorrow Night 6pm.we get to watch Fran Meredith Burgess son Emile Ruddock with TPC.excited much ! :D x
Dear Supporters, Rayne needs our help. We are urgently trying to find a rescue for this very sweet and deserving girl. We posted her a week ago and have learned that we have NO rescue for her yet. Its absolutely unbelievable as she is not only a beautiful girl but has such a sweet disposition. She clearly had a rough start and so lets do all we can to get her out. PLEASE SHARE AND PLEDGE!! PLEDGES WILL HELP US GET HER OUT OF THE SHELTER AND INTO A RESCUE! Rayne is an aprox 3 year old female Retriever/ shepherd mix who came in as a stray. She has the classic Retriever thinking bump on her skull. She is marked RESCUE ONLY because she has ear infections and she has some small wounds on her front paws. The wounds appear to already be healing. Rayne seems to be a really sweet girl who just wanted to sit next to us and snuggle up. She did fine being pet and loved on. She even appears to already know "SIT". We are seeking RESCUE for this sweet girl. If your organization is interested in her please contact Cindy ...
Burgess Meredith in TIME ENOUGH AT LAST from THE Twilight Zone; simply a great actor in a great episode from a great Classic tv series; the ending still haunts me to this day.
The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door.
Watching Clash of the Titans (Ray Harryhausen's, aka the only one I will acknowledge)
I'm like Burgess Meredith's character from Twilight Zone before breaking glasses. Except, for me, broken glasses = horribly painful surgery.
Catching up on my backlog of Batmans. Currently Vincent Price as Egghead. :-)
How many books is to many books? I don't know when I get there I will tell ya;.
Yeah, looks like Chuck's taking the skin boat to tuna town.: Grandpa Gustafson is in John's house watching his grandson put the moves on Melanie.
Burgess Meredith in Grumpy Old Men is one of the all time great cinema characters... I honestly don't think he was acting.
