    Not sure about the CIA connection, but didn't he design the Batmobile for the TV series in the 1960s?

    No, it was his brother George who was the car guy.

    Wasn't Chuck Norris the CIA assassin?

    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

    In some movies, yes.

    But the real deal was Chuck Connors!! He spewed lead death with that Winchester.

    Well if the CIA denies it, it must be true.

    Maybe it was Chuck D. After all he was a Public Enemy.

    Chucky was an experimental CIA assassin gone wrong. He didn't understand the concept of "furlough" and didn't take it well.

    he may have been even more successful if he hadn't been so accident prone. Fortunately, he was always injured only in the face.

    Whatever the truth may be, Charlie Kaufman created a great script for the film. Quality all the way.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Well, Julia Child was a secret agent, so I guess its not impossible. One thing for sure: Nobody every suspected either one of them. Would you?

    Why would someone take the time to stitch/staple those wounds but leave some that were still gaping or not even treated at all? Very shoddy medical treatment, I must say. This is why we need Obamacare.

    Duh. Chuck Connors was a Dodger, not an assassin.

    Life is better in the big ring.

    Chuck was also a Rochester Royal, a Boston Celtic, as well as a Seton Hall Pirate. Truly a stud.
