1. "Happy" 50th?!
One, Two, Three is a romp, albeit one rooted in the Cold War, but the other films don't exactly say laugh-fest.

2. I'm the messenger
It's TCM who christened tonight's offerings 'Happy 50th'. I don't see how, unless they are trying to be ironic, any of this evening's films could be considered 'happy'! They all provide plenty of angst for us to wallow in-

:crazy: :shrug: :hi:

3. Oh, yeah, it was definitely TCM's idea.
And they're not without a sense of irony there.

Anyway, enjoy the show! :hi:
