    "But it's Penn's MICKEY ONE that really shocked me when I saw it. It played maybe four times over a single weekend when I stayed in LA in the late 1970s, and it was just mesmerizing. (Can't find it on DVD or even VHS, sadly.) It stars Warren Beatty as a stand-up comic from Detroit driven off the stage by the Mob, and who has to face his past when he resurfaces in Chicago and tries to resurrect his act under a new name."

    It's on TCM from time to time. I had intended to record it to DVD the last time it was on (about a month ago), but my DVR misfired. You can check TCM's schedule online to see when it will show again. I know I will!
