Classic Scene - Is it safe? - Marathon Man

You may have noticed that Live for Films has been a bit quite today. There is a reason.

Yesterday I was struck down with the most hideous pain, worse than that pain ray thing Ming the Merciless uses in Flash Gordon. Tooth ache in fact. I woke up this morning and the pain had increased exponentially to really, really painful.

It was a mad dash to the dentist where, after some x-raying (but no manifestation of super-powers), the big molar was yanked out in pieces.

With a big hole in my mouth and mucho painkillers I am now in a semi-normal state.

My dentist was most friendly and efficient but all the yanking and pulling of teeth put me in mind of this classic scene from Marathon Man starring Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier.

If you are due a trip to the dentist soon do not watch this.
