How to Suceed in Business Without Really Trying

Yes, I actually watched this movie (it took 2 days). I'd never actually seen it all the way though and I didn't want to watch something "heavy". This is going to sound funny, but I used to have a crush on Robert Morse when I was a wee lass. My fav Robert Morse movie is The Loved One. He had that beauty mark on his face and that amazing split between his front teeth. Almost no one can sing except Michelle Lee which makes it quite entertaining in an odd way. The over the top choreography is the icing on the cake! Anyone who has ever had a job can relate to the fact that good old fashioned back stabbing and ass-kissing are tried and true methods to get you to the top.

Interesting observation - Robert Morse play Bertram Cooper on Mad Men. Bertram has an office that contains traditional Asian art  and a few Rothko paintings. In HSBWRT, Finch ends up president of the company with an Asian themed office. There is no way this is a coincidence. turns out Matthew Weiner, the creator of Mad Men wanted Bertram to be the Finch character - complete with a Japanese fetish.

A different angle.
