Maybe it’s the day, or maybe it’s the mood, but as I reviewed some of the things I’ve thought about over the last month or so, I was reminded of a very cool scene in a movie that you probably did not see, because it sounded too stupid for words.

It wasn’t too stupid for words, and though I had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to see the thing, and I am glad to say it was worth it.

It is the story of a wealthy man who decides to go to college (something he missed earlier in his life), when his son gets accepted at a prestigious school.  The man is rough, crude, and irreverent, but he is still determined to “make it” through the system.

The following scene is a part of his final board of exams.  He has just about given up, believing himself to be both a fool and a failure, when his English professor (Nancy Kellerman), reminds him of a poem they had studied together.

I wonder if you will be as moved by this as I was (and am).

Rodney Dangerfield does Dylan Thomas
