Ron Moody Is 90

I have heard an argument made that Ron Moody's portrayal of Fagin in Oliver! takes a character who is an anti-Semitic stereotype to begin with and blows the big-nosed doors off, but I have to say that I cannot keep from loving this money-grubbing Jewy jig and the performance behind it. He was also amazing in Mel Brooks' third-greatest film. Anyway, the man is 90 today, and good for him.

You just HAD to link to that listicle, didn't you. Now I'll be frazzled and muttering under my breath all afternoon — Men in Tights ahead of Spaceballs, WTF, etc.
