Mock Squid Soup: June Trivia Teaser



Today, as an added treat for this month's edition of Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints about their film choice for the month.  All are welcome to guess, of course.  Here are the three clues for my movie:

- This late 1980s film includes footage from a mid 1950s epic.

- This surprise hit was the breakout movie for a Hollywood A-lister.  While he has played a wide variety of roles over the years since, he never quite managed to shake his original image of lovable idiot.

- One of standup comedy's all-time greats performs a guru/narrator role.

Any guesses?  Society reviews will be posted next Friday, June 12th.  See you then.  Meanwhile, please visit my fellow cinephiles today:
