Fist saw Marvyn Hamlisch in 1989 in Huntsville, Alabama. he came on to play and conduct the orchestra in the 2nd half of the concert and they came alive, he made such a difference. A mate saw him in Ireland only a few months ago and he did exactly the same.

Let's hope Marvin is moving up today.

I met Bernard Lovell, many years ago. He came to Salford University to do an open lecture, an as my Dad was a huge Astronomy fan he took me along. He was fascinating, talked technical sometimes, but also explained things for us not quite up to speed. Apparently Brian Cox was a big fan of his.

Have they done anything internet based or were they jsut reliant on the actual comic?

An underestimated director IMO who many seemed to think his films were overshadowed by those of his brother. I don't care what anyone says, Top Gun is a classic.

He made Hollywood films very well indeed.

Top Gun is a gay film with an Air Force subtext.

Don't you mean Navy? I don't think Top Gun was deliberately meant to be a gay film, just made to appeal to the fashions of the time.
