BOWFINGER
1999, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Frank Oz

Muppet master Frank Oz teams Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy in this hilarious look at movie-biz bottom-feeders. Bobby Bowfinger (Martin) is one of those, a wannabe producer convinced his sci-fi script would be a smash if only famed actor Kit Ramsey (Murphy) was in it. The solution to his problem: Shoot the film around the action star without his knowledge. With Heather Graham.


DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
1988, Park Circus/MGM, 110 min, USA, Dir: Frank Oz

Muppet master Frank Oz proves equally talented directing human beings in this gloriously entertaining comedy. Michael Caine is a con man in the South of France who preys on ridiculously rich women; when he’s rudely challenged by a crass American (Steve Martin), a contest ensues targeting wealthy Glenne Headly.


DEAD MEN DON'T WEAR PLAID
1982, Universal, 88 min, USA, Dir: Carl Reiner

Steve Martin is a private eye who interacts with some of film noir’s iconic characters thanks to gorgeous black-and-white cinematography and some extremely creative editing. Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, Alan Ladd and Ingrid Bergman (whose scenes were repurposed from NOTORIOUS) are just some of the famous faces you’ll spot!
