  3. very cool . I am enjoying each and every honor they receive and making sure all those who had something to say in a negative fashion years ago know about how this has turned into a huge hit that will live on for many more years. And a certain Mr. Valli has not been doing too bad out there with the 4 Seasons as well.
    Congrats to all involved with. I can not wait for the movie to come out now.
