THE TOWERING INFERNO is a 1974 American action drama disaster film produced by Irwin Allen featuring an all-star cast led by Steve McQueen and Paul Newman. The picture was directed by John Guillermin. A co-production between 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. (this was the first film to be a joint venture by two major Hollywood studios), it was adapted by Stirling Silliphant from a pair of novels, The Tower by Richard Martin Stern and The Glass Inferno by Thomas N. Scortia and Frank M. Robinson. The film was a critical success, earning a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Picture, and was the highest-grossing film released in 1974. The film was nominated for eight Oscars in all, winning three. In addition to McQueen and Newman, the cast includes William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire, Susan Blakely, Richard Chamberlain, O.J.

Thinking on the death of Russell Johnson, I remembered some of the people who were being considered for roles on Giligan's Island. The professor was almost played by Dabney Coleman. Ginger was very close to being played by Jayne Mansfield. And Maryann (who could only ever have been played by Dawn Wells) was possibly going to be Raquel Welch. I think having Mansfield and Welch on the same island would have radically changed the nature of the show. For one thing, the Navy would have sent entire fleets to rescue them. On the other hand, it would have explained the repeated failures of the professor and the crew of the Minnow to get off of an island that was only a three hour tour's length from Hawaii (although I would say that explanation probably would hold up with cast they did have.).
9 to 5 is a 1980 American comedy film written by Patricia Resnick and Colin Higgins, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman. The film concerns three working women living out their fantasies of getting even with, and their successful overthrow of, the company's autocratic, "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss. 9 to 5 was a hit, grossing over $3.9 million in its opening weekend in the U.S. and is the 20th highest-grossing comedy film. As a star vehicle for singer Parton, it launched her permanently into mainstream popular culture. Although a television series based on the film was less successful, a musical version of the film (also titled 9 to 5), with new songs written by Parton, opened on Broadway on April 30, 2009. 9 to 5 is number 74 on the American Film Institute's "100 Funniest Movies"

My 8 for Christmas is still to come, but here's another number I was given: Here's 12 more things you may not know about me: 1. I've always dreamed of being a writer and actor. I plan to audition someday for a part in a movie/tv show. I don't care if I get the part, I just want to audition. 2. Although I've enjoyed premium cigars for 20 years, I have always hated the smell of cigarette smoke. Still do. 3. I once had a date with Dabney Coleman's niece. 4. My father is one of 8 siblings and I am one of 16 cousins. I am the only cousin with the last name Brooks. 5. I have always been a Christian and a regular church attender. I've never walked away from either one. 6. My favorite author is C.S. Lewis. Although I'm a HUGE fan of the Narnia series and his space trilogy, I've read the book "The Abolition of Man" more times than any other work he has written. 7. I can go indefinitely without cigars or chocolate, but one week without cheese and I go dark side. Emperor Palpatine himself would be ove ...

US New movies for November 01, 2013 Broadcast News (1987) Three ambitious workaholics -- a handsome but weak-minded anchorman, his driven producer and a neurotic reporter -- are set loose in a network TV newsroom, where their professional and personal lives become hopelessly cross-wired. Brighton Beach Memoirs (1986) Gene Saks directs this film adaptation of Neil Simon's hit play, starring Jonathan Silverman as Eugene, a Jewish teenager sharing very cramped quarters with his loud, nosy and loving family in Depression-era Brooklyn. Both touching and laugh-out-loud funny, the film co-stars Blythe Danner and Bob Dishy as Eugene's parents, with Lisa Waltz as cousin Nora, the source of many of Eugene's adolescent fantasies and frustrations.

Watched "War Games'' at hotel last night. I vote for Dabney Coleman to play the lead in "The Jim Leyland Story.''
“Burt reynolds is poor man's dabney coleman” OR it's the other way around
Burt reynolds is poor man's dabney coleman
If you don't know who Dabney Coleman is we have nothing else to discuss.
DO NOT MISS the creepy, pervy goodness of BAD RONALD, perhaps the greatest made-for-TV movie ever. Blandly professional visuals spiked with chuckleheaded plot turns and wacky neighbors seem harmless enough at first, only to become something like a YA novel gone hideously, skin-crawlingly wrong. A true nightmare. Plus Dabney Coleman.
A partial list of my favorite things (as spoken by Dabney Coleman)
I watched it with the kids recently. It holds up surprisingly well. Remember when Dabney Coleman was everywhere?
Loved you in Tootsie & Hot to Trot w Bobcat Goldthwait. Was just telling my friends Dabney Coleman is underrated & here u are!.
Tonight I learn that King Arthur's lance was named Ron. His shield Kevin and suit of armor Dabney Coleman carried him bravely into battle
if i were to remake Modern Problems, i'd put Seth Rogen in Chevy Chases role but still use Dabney Coleman and Brian Doyle-Murray
Voodoo Priestess make me a doll of Dabney Coleman
It was just a DVD that we popped in so I didn't know much about it. Don't have HBO to Go yet. Dabney Coleman? Oh.. :)
and Gretchen Mol and Dabney Coleman… also did you know that Steve Buscemi was a Ny firefighter!? Amazing man…
Dabney Coleman, on what research he did to play his character in Wargames: "I always just look for the *** in my roles."
I'm voting Pat Hogan. He reminds me of Dabney Coleman. I love the stache.
Backpackin' it around town. Kinda feel like Davey Osborne from only missing a walkie talkie and Dabney Coleman.
Dabney Coleman's finest hour. And no, I didn't need to look that up.
need 1987 version w/Dabney Coleman as Hugh Hefner and Chris Plummer as a televangelist bent on ruling LA
Thinking of Newsroom as the movie 9 to 5 wherein Dabney Coleman represents Aaron Sorkin's superego is the only way to make sense of it.
John Badham, Dabney Coleman, more to appear for special screening of WARGAMES, Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Regent, 7:30pm:
Wait a minute... Dabney Coleman never became a huge movie star?!
Charles Dickens may have coined the phrase "cloak and dagger", but Henry Thomas and Dabney Coleman made it real.
I always think I can't love "Rolling Thunder" more, and then I remember Dabney Coleman is in it
Back in the early 80’s, a producer friend asked if I’d like to work on a Muppets movie. Well, I wasn’t a big Muppets fan and I had just finished writing for a hit show (“Mork and Mindy”) so I wasn’t anxious to do it. Oh, and I was an *** But my friend said it’d be easy; the movie was already written, they just needed someone to write bits for the guest stars. And who would those be, I asked. And he said: Dustin Hoffman, Steve Martin, Laurence Olivier, Richard Pryor, Lily Tomlin and Micheal Jackson. Seriously. I picked my chin off the floor and said yes. Hoffman was going to play a Broadway producer and planned to do his impression of legendary movie producer Bob Evans. But as the shoot approached he became concerned Evans would take offense, and he dropped out. (He later did the impression for an entire movie: “Wag The Dog”.) When Hoffman left, so did everyone else. We ended up with Art Carney, Linda Lavin, Dabney Coleman, Gregory Hines, James Coco, Brooke Shields and Joan ...
Have you guys seen "The Guardian" casting Simon Baker, Dabney Coleman, Alan Rosenberg?? If you're anxious to acquire a good knowledge of Americans' living situation or to study law and psychology, I strongly recommend it. "You are my son doesn't mean you will receive special treatment among my other employees in my firm" said Burton Fallin to his son Nick Fallin." Is he a good father or a bad father? Find it out and watch it! Enjoy, guys!!
Winding down with some cinematic comfort food—9 to 5 (What a way to make a living!). Great ensemble, fun film, and every time Dabney Coleman is on screen, I remember when he got out of my father's car without putting it in park and put a ding in the bumper, which caused my father to say "that *** rectum put a ding in the bumper!" He's not just an evil boss—he's a bumper-dinging *** rectum. My late father had a way with the mother tongue.
This stinks. As the numbness goes away, the more pills I want to take.
My name is Dabney and while I am not Dabney Coleman, feel free to say that you have the support of all Dabneys.
Ooh! I was once at a bar where Dabney Coleman happened to be having a birthday party for his wife!
I just named a bug I found Dabney Coleman because, you know, freedom.
For real guys; not watching it unless we get some Dabney Coleman
.,Dont Mark & Gabby Gifford (bless her heart) remind you of Dabney Coleman and Dustin Hoffman (as Tootsie?)
A CEO is being held captive by his own employees. Admit you've thought about doing that.
CNN these days is basically Dabney Coleman in "9 to 5," right?
“searched Amazon for the Best of War Games DVD. Is this the right one? Dabney Coleman is Arn Anderson
Next to "The Towering Inferno" (1974), "WarGames" (1983) and the way underappreciated, forgotten & entertaining "Short Time" (1990), this is my favorite Dabney Coleman (excellent as Jack Flack/Hal Osborne) film and still lots of fun, even for fantasy gamer fans!
American boss held hostage in China. Female workers lock him up due to workplace grievances. Could be a movie script! Sorta reminds me of that movie "9 to 5" where the office workers (led by Dolly Parton) kidnap their evil boss (played by Dabney Coleman).
Profoundly enjoying some 5am "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot" magnificence. The only thing that could possibly make this movie any better would be Burt Reynolds and an eight year old wit a badge, or Dabney Coleman with a deathwish on a timeline. or possibly Queen Latifa if we're blending decades of bad movies together.
Every time I see Joel Quenneville, I think Dabney Coleman (see pic). Cool customer and horse guy to boot!
