J. Baker says:
For a great covert-Howard Hughes characterization, check out Max Ophuls's 'Caught', with Robert Ryan, Barbara Bel Geddes, James Mason. First rate film noir.
Robert Ryan is as much a match physically and temperamentally, to play Hughes, as Tommy Lee Jones was.

Jonathan,

I saw "Caught" back in July and have to agree it is first rate film noir. I would disagree that this was a "covert-Howard Hughes characterization" except in the broadest sense. However, your concept of Ryan playing Hughes is intriguing. There's no way of knowing if Ryan's performance would equal that of Tommy Lee Jones but I would concede that it is a possibility. Any actor's performance depends on the quality of the writing, of course; a benefit that Tommy Lee Jones certainly enjoyed. But I like very much your choice of Ryan as Hughes and, given a quality writer who truly knew and understood Hughes, Ryans performance could have been something special and memorable. I, for one, would have paid to see it.

+Goodfellas... fun trivia: The "You think I'm funny?" scene was based on a story that Joe Pesci acted out for Martin Scorsese. While working in a restaurant as a young man, Pesci once told a mobster that he was funny and the mobster became very angry. Scorsese allowed Pesci and Ray Liotta to improvise the scene. He did not tell the other actors in the scene what would happen because he wanted their genuine surprised reactions.

^^^ did not know that - that is awesome. I love that scene.

"You're a real funny guy!!!" Love that part at the end of it when Pesci jumps on Liotta...
