Do You See What I See?

So I watched Inglorious Basterds and was not impressed at all.

However!

I absolutely LOVED the movie Kelley's Heroes.

A signed photograph (with a lipstick mark) of Natasha who can first link the two.

In a general connection, both films are about a small group of US soldiers in Nazi occupied France.

More specifically, a track called "Tiger Tank" from Kelly's Heroes is in Inglorious Basterds.

Found it:

"The (musical) track, entitled "Tiger Tank", of Schifrin's score appears in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds."

Could I just buy a signed photograph (with a lipstick mark) of Natasha. Because I have no idea what the connection is, but I would love to have the picture.

Both are correct! Sadly C was just a little bit ahead of z_g.

Shoot me an e-mail with your address at captcapitalism@yahoo.com and I'll mail you the picture.

Cpt.

Well, you and I already discussed it but I'll throw my hat out since you asked.

I liked the film. I liked the violence. I liked the way Tarantino builds up, releases, builds up, releases tension.

I thought there were some incredibly funny scenes. I loved watching the Nazi interrogators do their work.

The film lacked character development, but the original script as written was three times as long. Perhaps the best parts were cut out. In fact, entire characters were cut out.

I won't say more because I don't want to spoil it. But unless you're a big Tarantino fan, you might want to wait til it's out on video and avoid expensive, dirty, noisy theaters. After seeing it once and hearing critiques and reading trivia, I want to see it again just to catch what I missed.
