AAMM is absolutely a spiritual sequel to AAE. As I said in my most recent review of Opening Night: "if you ever want to program a triple feature with intriguing connections, I suggest All About Eve, Opening Night and All About My Mother."

What was the original of My Girl?

I think oldkid meant HIS Girl Friday, which is a remake of The Front Page.

Shouldn't that be the other way around? The Front Page came out 30 years later.

Right, another, earlier The Front Page. Should have thought about that.

Like most Cinefix's Tops, I like that.

What Martin said.  And if you haven't seen Sorcerer, then just know that it adds about fifty percent more intensity to the story over Wages of Fear.
