    As I heard it said at a country-western show in Colorado years ago, Country is when you're singing about somebody else's wife. Western is when you're singing about somebody else's horse.

    Well if you were to ask the Russians: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Beach Boys would all be considered decadent Western Music.

    You need to watch the movie 1-2-3, a story of a capitalist Coca Cola exec thrust into cold war Berlin. The torture scene is pretty amusing:

    Thanks Ron, I didn't understand any of the "Deutschland" conversation but I'm very familiar with "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie" song ! I love old movies.

    Most of the movie is in English. One of the last James Cagney films made (he disliked this one so much he didn't make anymore save a little cameo in Ragtime 20 years later (and a couple of narrations).

    Anyhow, the gist is that they force him to confess to being an American Spy working for the CIA (then led by Allen Dulles, the brother of John Foster Dulles, who was Secretary of State and the namesake of the Northern Virginia Airport).

    The context is that this guy is the communist boy that the daughter of a Coca-Cola exec that Jimmy Cagney's character has been tasked to watch. He decides to have the guy detained in East Berlin.

    Amusingly, production of this film hit a snag when the Berlin wall was suddenly erected during the filming.

    A wonderful example of Western Music!

    1-2-3 is a hilarious movie. Originally a play, “Situation hopeless but not serious.” The more you know about Germans the funnier it is. (It caricatures Americans, too.) It was so nice of the East German Volkspolizei and Stasi to continue to use the old 3d Reich uniforms. It certainly helped to identify them as the bad guys.
