3) Ayn Rand liked Caddyshack


Here at we like to think ourselves a cut above the rest, crap my monocle just dropped into my Tom Collins. Anyway Ayn Rand was a Russian born American novelist, philosopher and screenwriter. Her most famous works are Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead the latter having been turned into a film in 1949 starring Gary Cooper. While thumbing through the office copy of The New Yorker we saw how Ayn Rand had a short column in Parade where she talked about her love of Caddyshack, her disappointment at The Shining‘s ending and a penchant for speed, not the movie. Read all about it here.

Only recently discovering North by Northwest, he longs for a train journey with a beautiful blond.
