So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye

Not from me, from John Hughes and Budd Schulberg.

Which is the better film about a fascist demagogue, A FACE IN THE CROWD or FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF? One thing I like about Ferris is I don’t have to like him to enjoy the movie — a certain amount of resistance to the character actually helps. Always, with the pleasure, a little malaise.
