sad

Rip Torn's arrest for trying to rob a bank while drunk seems more like a movie plot line than a newspaper story.

are you serious? i've not read the paper today, got wet when tossed in a puddle by the delivery guy. that's just weird. a weird story. do you think torn was acting out a long-held fantasy of being a dashing bad guy / bank robber?

no. I'm afraid he's just an alcoholic who needs help. this isn't his 1st arrest but his most serious.

Maybe he'll stop making movies. I use to live down the block from his and Geraldine Page's townhouse in Chelsea, and yes its true the name on the bell was torn/page, and sometimes I would see Page in the supermarket looking very bit the housewife, pushing a cart full of beer. Friendly as hell to the clerks.
