<p><em>The French Lieutenant's Woman</em> is being watched at my homestead, entirely against my will.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It blows.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway, It's a movie within a movie. The characters are making a movie. And that's the movie.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The only other cinematic "turducken" I can remember is <em>Day For Night</em>.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Can you think of any others?</strong></p>

<p>Do plays within plays count?  No?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh well, what about</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"The Purple Rose of Cairo"?</p>
<p>Canada's own "Strange Brew"?</p>
<p>"The Player"?  Robert Altman at his cynical best.</p>

<p>There was The Cameraman, that 1920's Buster Keaton movie which I'm sure you've all seen. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Buster plays a movie projectionist who falls asleep and dreams himself into the movie he was showing.</p>

If it was also made into a movie?  Yes?  A Midsummer Night's Dream. :D</p>

Pale Fire by Vladamir Nabokov is a damn fine novel buried in a poem.<br><br>
The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon has an extended play within the novel.<br><br>
I like crappy horror/crime novels, and a lot of them are about writers trying to write novels and mixing with nasty killer-folk. Misery by Steven King. The Hook by Donald Westlake. Worst Nightmares by Shane Briant. The Death List by Paul Johnston.<br><br>
