In 1987, Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), a car salesman from Minneapolis, Minnesota with financial troubles, hatches a plan to end his financial difficulties. Through his mechanic, a former criminal named Shep Proudfoot, he enlists the service of two hit men, Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare) and Carl Showalter (Steve Buscemi), at a bar in Fargo, North Dakota to kidnap his wife, Jean, who will be returned unharmed for a payment of $80,000. Jerry's secret plan is to tell his wealthy but antagonistic father-in-law, Wade, that the ransom is $1,000,000 intending to use the large difference to settle unspecified debts he has accrued and to invest in a business venture involving a parking lot...another black comedy that i thought was terrific! I also got a kick out of how much and how often the local police chief, heavily pregnant Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand)and her sweet husband, Norm, ate!!

From the movie "The Wackiest Wagon Train in the West"(1976)
...which simply strung together three episodes of the not very popular "Gilligan's Island" remake "Dusty's Trail" (1973)
Here's how it goes:
Produced by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of Gilligan's Island, this series took the
character of Gilligan, changed his name to Dusty, placed him on a wagon train and dared him
to try to find the west! They surrounded Dusty with very recognizable characters -
The wagon master played by Forrest Tucker (Skipper);
a rich couple, Ivor Francis and Lynn Wood (Mr. & Mrs.
Howell); saloon girl Jeannine Riley (Ginger);
school marm Lori Saunders (Mary Ann); and an
engineer played by Bud Cort (Professor). With Dusty
as guide, the wagon train wandered all over the place,
and it was a sure bet that this group would never
make its way west, in much the same way the
castaways were never able to get off the island thanks
to the lovable, well-meaning Gilligan...Starring:
Bob Denver - Dusty,
Forrest Tucker - Wagonmaster Callahan, also
Ivor Francis - Mr. Carson Brookhaven,
Lynn Wood - Mrs. Brookhaven,
Jeannine Riley - Lulu McQueen,
Lori Saunders - Betsy,
Bill Cort - Andy

Jean Balukas, generally regarded as the greatest female pool player of all time, appears on this 1966 episode of I've Got A Secret--when she was not quite seven years old. (Balukas won the U.S. Open women's title seven consecutive times from 1972 through 1978.) She gives an impressive display of her talents.
