DVD: Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)

dvd_dmdwp Took the afternoon off as I seem to be well ahead with my work. Lee and I watched Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982). An unusual title with an even more unusual cast: Steve Martin, Rachel Ward, Alan Ladd, James Cagney, Barbara Stanwyck, Humphrey Bogart, Ray Milland, Kirk Douglas, Ava Gardner and James Cagney - virtually every 40s/50s movie icon there ever was!

Forget the storyline, just enjoy Steve Martin at this best, together with some clever special effects that allowed Steve to share the screen with most of the above artistes.
A guilty pleasure!
