Linking up with the Saturday 9 for some fun questions inspired by music. Thanks, Sam, for finding the music and thinking up the questions every week!
Saturday 9: Ain't That a Kick in the Head (1960)
Unfamiliar with this song? Hear it here.
2) This song was introduced in the original Ocean's 11 movie. Have you seen it, or the remake and its sequels? I'm not sure if I've seen the original. I used to watch a lot of old movies so it's possible. I have seen the remake and one or two of the sequels. I've enjoyed them.
3) All the Ocean's movies are about heists. Why do you suppose audiences enjoy watching caper films? With the Ocean's movies I think it's the adventure, the fast pace, and the fun ensemble cast. At least I always love a movie with an ensemble cast.
5) Dean was extremely claustrophobic and avoided elevators whenever possible -- and even when it wasn't. He was late for the first night of an engagement, even though he was staying at the hotel where he was performing, because he insisted on taking the stairs from his luxury suite to the showroom (18 flights). The hotel put him in a smaller, less prestigious room on a lower floor so he could more easily arrive on time for his own shows. Have you ever been stuck in an elevator? Several times. The elevator in my college dorm was always breaking down.
9) Random question (Not really so random, considering Dean Martin's reputation): Do you have a hangover remedy to recommend? Not really. Even when I indulged in nightly partying I didn't get many hangovers. I've always been told the best thing to do is drink lots of water because a hangover is mostly caused by dehydration. I don't know if it's true. You can try it and let me know.
