Bill Murray as FDR.

(click, via)
From his upcoming film "Hyde Park on the Hudson".
He's come a long way from "Stripes."
True story: back in the late 1980s, I was walking near Union Square, and saw Murray in the middle of watching moving guys load his stuff into a Ryder truck. He went into the corner store, and came out with two six-packs of Bud and a big bag of generic potato chips. I approached him with two friends and asked for an autograph. He swore under his breath, but he was smirking. He wrote "86 this man. Bill Murray" on some spare card I had in my wallet. Wallet with said signed precious card in it has since been stolen.

Was the beer for his movers? Very cool if he decided to share with them.

It was for him, his girlfriend, and his two movers.

I'm left wondering why the branding, or lack thereof, of the the chips is mentioned.

I invented a religion after watching Groundhog Day. Bill Murray is my jesus figure. Today is the holiest day on the calendar.

You need to go back 2 years, ranter.

"Meatballs" is a 1979 Canadian comedy film directed by Ivan Reitman. It is noted for the first film appearance of Bill Murray in a starring role and for launching Reitman into a distinguished career of financially successful comedies including Stripes (1981) and Ghostbusters (1984), both starring Murray.

The movie was filmed at Camp White Pine and other locations near Haliburton, Ontario.

NOTE: @ 57 mark
Bill Murray as Tripper Harrison to Roxanne while dancing:
"Is that a bra you're wearing, or are you expecting an assassination attempt?"

After all these years, I still remember what Kate Lynch as Roxanne, replies:
"Is that a chiclet in your pocket, or are just happy to see me?" OUCH!!!
