Is that the Umberto Eco?  Born on the 5th January 1932?  The Italian semiotician, essayist, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist, best known for his groundbreaking 1980 historical mystery novel Il nome della rosa?

I love his stuff.

No, not that Umberto Eco. The other one.

Oh right, I don't know him then.

I don't know either of them, if it makes you feel better.

I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

West Side Story was 1961, can't believe you would make such a basic mistake Julius, very out of character.

You're thinking of the film Jeff. The original Broadway run was 1957.

Jailhouse Rock was released in 1957, if Linebreaker is really called Elvis that would be the all time highlight of the culture cup for me.

It may seem that way to you Jeff, but to a man of culture such as myself, the natural inclination is to look to the theatre, not the picture-house.
