Them's fighting words so get your dukes up. Murray is a Canadian and this Canadian thinks Murray – even though he has fewer acting styles than Robbie – is a national treasure on par with Banff, the Rockies, and Victoria's Empress Hotel (even though these three have greater acting styles than Murray).

Ok, I'll grant you he's rocky, probably secretly dresses like Victoria, and wastes consonants. But with so few national treasures, you would think that Anne would have retained Murray, and Bill would be called something like Meathead.

Spencer Tracy, a fine actor

Had to be, getting stuck with Kate all those years. Talk about the ability to turn grapes to raisens...

And, while I have you grabbed by the collar: Ms Lucci will shortly have a star on the Hollywood Walk and Fame. So there!

Yes, there is something to be said for longevity and durability, hence the popularity of Consumer Reports.

As for your comments about Robbie, go watch Forbidden Planet again. His subtle use of nuance, sarcasm, and hyperbole totally outclassed Leslie Nielsen (another Canadian treasure), who oddly played his part straight. I guess he knew he couldn't compete. As for his drinking problem, I blame it on the Krell.

[Note: We have just been informed by his agent that his name is actually spelled "Robby", and we apologize for any confusion.]
