A movie with Classy Freddie Blassie


That's right folks. You read that title correctly. A movie that starred legendary wrestling manager Classy Freddie Blassie.

That movie, My Breakfast with Blassie, starring Blassie, and comedian of the time, the supposedly dead Andy Kaufman.

What the movie is, is well a documentary of Andy and Blassie, meeting at a restaurant in California called Sambo's for breakfast. When the movie starts, we see Andy traveling on the bus to the restaurant to meet Freddie.

What makes this movie very interesting, is that the camera stays in one spot and we hear their view on things. Some things both men talk about are how they hate to shake peoples hands.

I know to us that sounds like nonsense, but I guess that when you are famous like these guys were, you can do what you want.
