Six Degrees Movie Game #8: The Remake Always Rings Twice

by Dave Umbricht

I’ve been thinking about Jessica Lange.

She may be the remake queen.  She played Fay Wray’s part in the 70’s version of King Kong, was in Cape Fear and did TV movies of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Streetcar Named Desire, Sybil, and Grey Gardens.

So in honor of this, let’s use one more remake she made and go from when the Postman rang once with John Garfield (an actor you should seek out if you don’t know him) to when Jessica made him ring a second time with Jack Nicholson.

I look forward to seeing your trails in the comment section below.

About Dave Umbricht

Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.
