Vivian Leigh, who played Scarlet O'Hara, was a British actress, and did wonderfully as a Southern belle. There apparently are similarities.

I seem to be missing something here. I can't remember Anthony Hopkins being in "Easy Rider" and he isn't on the cast list in Wikipaedia.

Mr Hopkins is Welsh. It doesn't much matter to the rest of us Brits but it appears to do so to the Welsh.

The Yorkshire accent is the one I have the most difficulty understanding. My husband came from the Lakes District and you would think I should be able to understand the Yorkshire accent. It took me a while to understand him all the time at first. Sometimes he would say something to me using the words he grew up with. I would stand there just staring at him wondering what the heck did he just say.

No, Anthony Hopkins was not in Easy Rider: Easy Rider (1969) - IMDb

I'm trying to decide which character you thought he played.

Maybe (Dennis) Hopper=(Anthony) Hopkins? Not exactly toMAYto/toMAHto, but close enough?

My mistake all. I had Dennis Hopper confused with Anthony Hopkins.

It's REALLY GOOD! Not for the prudish type, but the acting and writing are excellent, i'm trying not to" binge watch " season 2!

Let's face it. Sunday afternoon there is nothing, I repeat nothing worth watching on TV. Well, maybe sports for the men and women who enjoy them.

So The Pirate came across "Mars Attacks". I can't remember the last time I laughed so much for so long. Every single cliché is in that movie. Including the little side room off the Oval Office where the President has illicit trysts. Every known and unknown name in Hollywood appears in this movie. You find yourself trying to identifying all of them. Even Godzilla made an appearance. So if you are looking for good laughs, and have nothing else to watch, make it a point to watch this movie the next time you see it on the schedule. And if you are watching it with someone, see who can identify the most celebrities. (I won! Only because I am older and remember more than The Pirate.)
