Where the bleep is "The Pawnbroker"?

Jose Sinclair said...

Even worse news on The Pawnbroker, when I looked at the complete list of all films mentioned, it didn't make the list at all, which is 2240 films.. dang- it was better than that!.. maybe about 1200 for me, maybe 900 - I have to rewatch it but its a candidate for my top 1000 which is not complete, only up to 875 or so now, with a rewatch list of 75-100 more titles, that's in the group of mine.. I assume you've see The Shop on Main St?

"Petulia" directed by Richard Lester
