Tomorrow & tomorrow & Bruce Dern

Wouldn’t you love to hear the sinister whine of Bruce Dern reading the more bleak works of the Bard? But why would anyone let him become a law enforcement officer?

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle.

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

  1. Ha, I never saw The Laughing Pig, but this picture is making me want to see it. Is this the phase where Matthau was attempting to be a cool tough guy, like in Charlie Varrick? ...like when John Wayne hit the mean city streets in the early seventies hilario-classics McQ and Brannigan!!!!
