Mike’s Favorite Directorial Efforts of the Decade (80-71)

Pic of the Day: “Who are you?” “Your slave.” “Where have you come from?” “From the other side of time, to find you.” “How long have you been searching?” “Since time began.” “Now that you’ve found me, how long will you stay?” “To the end of time.” (80th Anniversary)
