Ah if only my cable system carried American Movie Classics, dammit!
THE MAJOR AND MINOR was well known enough to be remade as YOU'RE NEVER
TOO YOUNG with Jerry Lewis in the Ginger Rogers roles.
I am not kidding.  Really.
          It's silly to go on pretending that under the skin
          we are all brothers.  The truth is more likely that
          under the skin we are all cannibals, assassins,
          traitors, liars and hypocrites.
