    its unbelievable the amount of off color jokes being made but no one cared.

    it does fit the topic, political correctness.

    Believe you missed my point.

    Watch some modern day Comedy Central roasts. Very off color.

    sorry. I can't agree on that one. There isn't anything in that movie that wouldn't be acceptable in today's environment. I mean, look at Quentin Terantino movies.

    It's the acting. He's just riveting, to me at least.
    I watched the Outlaw Josey Wales close to a dozen times and it wasn't until Clint turned 70 years old that I started looking around for a new best actor.

    Modern roasts are one of the few environment where political correctness is commonly ignored/violated. And hilariously so....
    Dean Martin did some of the best roasts, ever.

    At Dean Martin's roast of Sammy Davis, Jr, Milton Berle says that in light of all the black people on the dais that they didn't put any silverware on the tables. Do that today and there's going to be a protest, not laughter.

    That was something to behold, duets featuring Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin.
    My favorite musical, Paint Your Wagon.
