Ethan Hunt was back with "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III (M:I 3)." Directed by the innovative J. J. Abrams.
A spectacular but less rewarding film of the series.

The pride and joy of my extensive Tom Cruise collection is the original dance outfit from "Risky Business!" A Hollywood museum went out of business and offered major movie memorabilia on eBay. The bidding was tough, but I got the prize!
I got a mannequin from The Netherlands as they were the only source with a short stature one, and Mark Lattanzio helped me install it. 
It's ensconced in a corner cabinet in my dining room which I call my Tom Cruise Shrine.

"LIONS FOR LAMBS" was a controversial film with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep!

Tom starred in a minor but impressive part in "TROPIC THUNDER," a Ben Stiller film. His "Les Grossman" has become iconic.

"VALKYRIE" won praise for his part of Col. Claus von Stauffenberg but was also controversal, particularly in Germany.

Cameron Diaz then starred again with Tom in the fun romp "KNIGHT & DAY".

Just released "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL" (M:I 4) is a real thriller from start to finish.

Soon to be released: "ROCK OF AGES." WOW!!! Tom portraying rock god Stacee 
Jaxx. When the play was on Broadway it was nominated for a Tony. 

The "Billion Dollar Smile"
Tom @ 49!!

You sure do like Tom Cruise!! I like him, too. I think he's a better actor than most people.
