The most twisted film created by the screenwriting cerberus of Randy Newman, Steve Martin and Lorne Michaels is also one of the most quotable. The Three Amigos remains the greatest film about three silent film actors who mistakenly travel to Mexico to accidentally battle a brutal villain due to an underfunded telegraph message through song and dance that's ever been made. Also, it taught you the meaning of the word "infamous" and proved that sweaters make touching gifts -- even for tyrants. Revisit Lucky Day, Sandy Bottoms, Ned Nederlander and El Guapo Friday in the Nasher's beautiful courtyard (2001 Flora St.) as it presents The Three Amigos as its August 'Til Midnight film. They've got those Wolfgang Puck picnic baskets too — lest you’re hoping for a kiss on the veranda (even though the lips would do just fine). Call 214-242-5144 to pre-order. Admission to 'Til Midnight is free. Visit nashersculpturecenter.org.
