It's time once again for our regular feature "Secondhand George," when we hear cultural news and views of a guy named George secondhand via McNeil. According to McNeil, George saw something in either Esquire or GQ - possibly the current issue of one of those publications, but who knows. It was, in McNeil's vague recollection, perhaps a list of the greatest films of the 60s "or something like that." Well, whatever it was, it was illustrated with a publicity photo of Jerry Lewis wielding the most enormous fishing rod that Secondhand George has ever seen, or least that's the way McNeil tells it. The great thing about our "Secondhand George" feature is that precision counts for nothing.
