CNN just featured a nice profile on John Milius, the screenwriter responsible for so much classic film dialogue, from Duvall’s “Charlie Don’t Surf,” and “I love the smell of napalm in the morning,” to Clint Eastwood’s “Do I feel lucky” description of a .44 magnum, to Robert Shaw’s chilling description of being in the water while sharks pulled his fellow sailors underneath the water after the sinking of the Indianapolis.

Milius is an interesting guy – a gun nut who can’t stand Rush Limbaugh, he was reportedly the model for the Dude in “The Big Lebowski.”
