lamarca OBIT James Coburn (2002) (43) RE: OBIT James Coburn 19 Nov 02


My very favorite James Coburn movie (after the "Flint" films) was "The President's Analyst", a silly satire about what might happen to the psychologist to whom the president tells all his secrets... The ultimate villain in the movie was "TPC", The Phone Company, which was an enormous multinational that was in the process of controlling all our lives through technology - but, as I said, this was just a silly satire. Nothing like that could ACTUALLY happen. Nope. (Uh, are Mr. Poindexter or Mr. Ashcroft listening?)

ATT/ITT may not be the force they were when this movie was made, but has anyone noticed how much of their daily life is owned by Disney, or AOL/Time Warner, or Phillip Morris, or....

Hope you're having fun, wherever you've gone, James...
