    Tennis Announcer 1: That’s 72 unforced errors for Richie Tenebaum. He’s playing the worst tennis of his life. What’s he feeling right now?

    Tennis Announcer 2: I don’t know, Jim. There’s obviously something wrong with him. He’s taken off his shoes and one of his socks and… actually, I think he’s crying.

    one of my favorite lines in movies.

    Obsessed. Post some from Rushmore! “I’m an O.R. doctor.”… “Oh, are you?” Brill.

    A great photo of the tennis match scene:


    Makes a great desktop background.

    I have a slight obsession with those Miguel Calderón paintings.

    In the commentary for Tennenbaums there is a great discussion around Hackman using Coltrane instead of the scripted “Satchmo.”

    If you could place yourself into one of Wes Anderson’s films, would you:

    a) Be a part of Mr. Henry’s crew

    b) Fill one of the parts in Max’s rendition of Serpico

    c) Be one of Etheline’s suitors

    d) Be an Team Zissou intern

    c) Replace Brendan

    -”Oh, are they?”

    The glasses Gene Hackman wore were just thrift shop glasses that the property master found. In the screenplay, they are referred to as Aristotle Onassis – style glasses.

    Thank you! I’d been wondering about that for years.
