      I actually have a question. What is the name of the movie where the main character went into the hospital for a routine surgery, but his friends told him about hospital-acquired infections (nosocomial) and he wouldn't wake up after the surgery because he'd been so afraid of these infections. In his comatose state he dreamed the hospital was full of scarythings and he eventaully died as a result of this fear?

      My mom's favorite movie trivia joke:

      Q: In the movie "North to Alaska," what two French things did John Wayne lose?

      A: His toupee and his chapeau!

      (In the big mud fight scene, watch carefully. John Wayne *briefly* loses his hat and his hairpiece! *grin*)

      I'm a Western movie fan, and noticed something tonight while watching the 1959 film Rio Bravo w/ John Wayne, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson and Walter Pigeon. I noticed John Wayne carrying what I believe to be a Winchester 73, with an extended lever loop. Chuck Connors in the Rifleman series also carried a Winchester 73 with an extended lever loop. Does anyone know perchance if it was the same rifle used in both shows?
