There’s a way to kill brain cells on St. Patrick’s Day other than drinking. Watching 34 straight episodes of “Green Acres,” that hopelessly hokey ’60s sitcom, should do the trick. Bonus: You won’t have to fight the bar crowd to get up close with Arnold Ziffel, the world’s smartest pig.

I treasure the evening I spent sitting on a hotel veranda with Tony Curtis and Robert Osborne, who passed away earlier this month. Of course, you didn’t have to meet cinema’s greatest fan in person to feel a connection.
