10 Great Seconds – Can’t Depend on that Light

November 2, 2011

Dudley Moore as Arthur – this was just a great film all around. I think of this line all the time, as well as 100 others from this movie. Written and directed by Steve Gordon just before he died in 1982 at the age of 43. Gordon learned his chops on Barney Miller (and other shows before that, but when you wrote for Barney Miller, no other shows really matter). What a shame – to make something this awesome and not get the chance to follow it up.

The setup:Arthur is being told by his father that he has to clean up and marry Susan, who Arthur detests. But being told he’ll be cut off from the family fortune if he doesn’t marry her, he begins to see her differently…
