The Way, My Way, By May ... the 4th?πŸ₯ΎπŸ₯Ύ

I saw a Q&A preview screening of 'The Way, My Way' last Saturday at the New Farm Cinemas and at first, I thought the cinema had done a Simon Baker on me again with the Q&A part. like when I bought tickets to a Q&A screening of 'Breath' they put on in 2018, as the movie was about to commence and there wasn't a chair or microphone in sight near the front of the cinema.
 The Six Degrees and Synchromysticism of Simon Baker?
But not so to my relief, as two metal stools were brought out and a portable mic handed to the people who had all the answers to give, kind of:-)
That screening took place on May 11th, 2024 -
Susan Backlinie, the First Victim in the 'Jaws' Film, dead at 77?🏊🦈
While I'm a Sharks and Lions supporter, Bill is a Sydney Swans supporter, hence that red hat he and the actor playing him in this movie are wearing in that photo above.
As I'm watching the movie I notice the date 1874 on the actor's hat and thought where have I just heard about that year recently, and it came to me that when I was watching the 1974 movie 'Blazing Saddles' it was mentioned by Mel Brooks' character in the movie that it was 1874, or 100 years before the movie was made:-)
And nothing much has changed in the 50 years since 'Blazing Saddles' was released, as Bill even has fart jokes in his movie ... see the trailer:-P
Blazing Saddles the Film You Couldn't Make Today Turns 50 in 2024?πŸ«˜πŸ€ πŸŽ‚πŸŽ¬
So, the Swans have been around 150 years this year, which takes you back to the year 'Blazing Saddles' was meant to take place until the 4th wall is smashed down big time?
But what really got me at the end of the movie 'The Way, My Way' was the group photo of the walkers finishing the walk on May the 4th, 2013 (AKA Star Wars Day)!?
According to Susan Backlinie's IMDB trivia page "she owned and trained a bear whose growls were later recorded for use as the voice of Chewbacca, according to Peter Mayhew tweet."
May the 4th (Star Wars Day) 2024 ... The Empire Never Ended?🏯🏰😎🎬
Too much headroom in my photo Bill?-)
I noticed that there were a few Star Wars type jokes in the movie where one walker says to Bill "so you've come to the darkside?"
So, I thought Bill was aware of the May the Forth (be with you) finishing date of the walk, but when I asked him about the finishing date Star Wars Day flew straight over his head ... which is one reason I left plenty of headroom in that last shot above;-)
The Way, My Way?πŸ₯ΎπŸ₯Ύ
Having watched the movie now, I can see that Bill was ... and probably still is ... a PiGS-headed man;-)
