The Deer Hunter

The Deer Hunter is on TV. I've never seen this movie. It's not that I haven't wanted to, it's just that I've never been driven to. As my cable is out I have few options as to what I watch live.

The movie has Christopher Walken, Robert DeNiro and Meryl Streep in it.

Walken looks like a boy. I looked up his Bio on IMDB and he was 35 when he made this movie, being born in 1943.

It's kind of funny, his second show, back in 1954, was, "The Motorola Television Hour". After that, he did a stint on, "The Guiding Light".

More funny, in 1977, he appeared on Kojak. Then, all of a sudden, over the next few years, "Annie Hall", "The Deer Hunter", "Heaven's Gate", "The Dogs of War" — where I first heard of him, being a big Frederick Forsythe fan at the time — and then, "Pennies From Heaven".

I'm not sure that he's made many great movies since then. He did have a small role in Pulp Fiction. I didn't notice anything else that was noticeable.
