    They missed one of my favorites, which is Jack Nicholson's recipe for ordering toast in the diner scene from "Five Easy Pieces".

      I liked this a lot.  It's fun.
       
      However, I clicked on the link, and couldn't find a recipe for a whiskey sour.
       
      I'm intrigued, because I've watched The Seven Year Itch many times -- it's a fun movie, though a pale reflection of the much smuttier original Broadway play --  but I do not remember any of the characters drinking whiskey sours.  Tom Ewell has a "sauerkraut juice on the rocks" cocktail at a health food restaurant; he drinks a bottle of strawberry pop (musing that with all the artificial ingredients listed on the bottle, he can't understand why, according to his doctor, drinking the pop is good for him and a little Scotch is bad for him); he mixes a "big tall glass" of martinis for Marilyn Monroe and himself; they share champagne (and dunk potato chips in it); and he prepares orange juice and cinnamon toast the morning before he leaves to join his wife and son in Maine.  
       
      But I don't remember any whiskey sours.

          Big Night: Timpano

          Someday when I have about 12-14 hours to kill, I'm going to try this one.

          Great movie.  Favorite quote, "Bite your teeth into the ass of life and drag it to you!"

            Thanks, i95.   (But that recipe didn't appear to be part of the compilation of 25 movie recipes.)
             
            No matter.  I was just confused.  (Not unusual.)

                  Perhaps  grampy will come out of retirement,
                  sort of like Satchel Paige pitching for the A's one last time,
                  and grace us with the essential Whiskey Sour.

                        The Sunday gravy in Godfather, or the breakfast in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.

                          I don't think many of the movies mentioned should be classified as "Famous"  but

                          as long as we are on the subject here are three ---2 from Famous Ones---

                          From Oscar Winning Mildred Pierce----the Fried Chicken (a new item on this board), she makes famous also, in her restaurant.  .

                          From another famous movie---Moonstruck----breakfast with Cher and Cage.

                          And-a last-a but-a not-a least-a the Timpano from that great, if not famous flick-----The Big Night.

                            While no recipes are given out, the scenes in Chocolat with Lena Olin and Juliette Binoche making candy are wonderful.  Also, in the movie, the birthday dinner party Juliette Binoche throws for Judi Dench, where you see the look of pure bliss as the dinner guests bite into what looks like chicken mole.

                                    Can you invite me over whenever you do this? I love that movie and just thinking about timpano makes my mouth water.

                                      I have never found or been able to develop the right recipe for
                                      Chocolate Strawberry Oasis Pie from the Movie "Waitress"
                                       but I love the way old Joe (Andy Griffith) describes it in the movie...


                                      Nobody in the world can make strawberry chocolate pie like you. Wednesday is my favorite day of the week just cause I get to have me a slice of it. I think about it as I’m waking up. It could solve all the problems of the world, that pie. It’s a thing of beauty….how each flavor opens itself, one by one, like a chapter in a book. First, the flavor of an exotic spice hits ya. Just a hint of it…and then you get flooded with the chocolate, dark and bittersweet like an old love affair…..and finally – strawberry – the way strawberry always was supposed to taste but never knew how to…

                                        My favorite movie was Heartburn with Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson.  I love when they were eating pasta carbonnera from one huge bowl in bed together!
