You should check your assumptions.

I might have seen more of those flicks than you or Mike have.

My brother is only 22, and he has entire collections of that era.

In any case, Dr. Zhivago and Citizen Kane are hardly signs of cultural 
connection.  In fact, Orson Welles very nearly ruined Citizen Kane 
(assuming that's the version you are talking about).

I actually have the soundtrack for Dr. Zhivago on vinyl, though long ago 
lost my last record player.  Just too much trouble.

In any case, I understood his postman reference.  I thought it was just 
a humorous add-on, and that he was really serious about their customer 
service being better.
