    Acting School 101 – April 2021 Introduction – Russell Crowe

    Welcome Back Students!

    Rob from MovieRob here!

    I think that this series is a great way to get a look at what the members of the Lamb community think about the work of some of the most prolific actors/actresses who have been entertaining us all for so many years.

    I plan to try and focus on an actor or actress every month who has a birthday in that given calendar month.

    Lambcast #576  MOTM Once Upon a Time in the West

    As we roll through 2021, one thing becomes obvious, the Movie of the Month is going to be a good film. So far we have had three movies, all over 50 years old and if you check out the Lambscores, It’s unlikely you will find a higher rated trio of films.

    Speaking of trios, that’s what we have joining Richard this week for the discussion. David Brook, Todd Liebenow join the film’s champion, James...
