    Yep, just like many folks today, the Kettles had to find some way to bring in the do re mi, even if it was on the shady side. A rustic stereo- type's got to do what a rustic stereotype's got to do. I haven't seen The Manster since I was a kid and it was on one of those Saturday night Chiller Theater shows. I don't think there is any good time to show a movie where someone has a second head growing out of him. It's on YT too. Hey dude, you've got a freakin' eye in your shoulder !!!!

    Hard to forget such an immense talent. OTOH, there's Little Jimmy Domingo.

    Probably not, though he was good looking enough to at least appear in an opera. Hard to think of any country stars whose names sound like they might have been opera singers. Too bad there wasn't a Porter Wagner.
  6. Some people never learn. And after all the fatalities that these big mouths suffered over the years, you'd think the characters on TV would have known better, but no, the boob tubers were just as likely to spill their guts and then lose them.

    Science Fiction

    If the Germans had won the war they might have put Arthur "Bomber" Harris on trial. He was responsible for carrying out the area bombing of German cities and the firebombing of Dresden, which killed many more civilians than the V-2 rockets of von Braun. But Harris was only following the orders of higher ups too. Today, with more precise bombing, it's hard to have an excuse for killing civilians, but I have no doubt that if things got rough, they would be targeted. Operation Paperclip was used to "whitewash" the German scientists, including von Braun, to hide their Nazi past, so they would be, at least on the surface, more presentable to Americans, and also to get around Truman's order that no member of the Nazi Party would be included. A number of both military and civilian officials managed to resign during Hitler's reign and live to tell the tale. But it's probably not an action one would want to undertake without some serious thought.

    von Braun was working for us since shortly after the end of WW II. I think the case can be made that he was a war criminal, but I think calling him a mass-killer is a stretch. He had to do more or less what he was told to do, or else. He was even detained by the SS for a short period of time as a "communist sympathizer." Just one of history's many ironies.
  9. I'm always amused at how often people in the movies tell the bad guy they're going to the police. How dumb can you be. Yet they keep on doing it. I guess the characters in movies never go to movies. I thought there were a few blacks in the crowd. The Klan operated in a lot of towns, so maybe moving wouldn't have made much difference. People were also bonded to the area they lived in and it was probably harder just to uproot from that place, though quite a few blacks did move north after WW II. If this was still the unfortunate situation today, maybe there would be an app highlighting which areas were Klan controlled.

    There have always been supernaturalists who wrote about things that are unusual and contradictory to what we know scientifically. Their motivation was likely religious. Until there is any proof of what they claimed to write about or see, I find no reason to think their accounts are anything other than tall tales, however interesting some of them are.
  11. musicalnovelty, that's how I remember it. They must have trusted the guy's aim since they weren't that far away. I chalk some of these things up to the old Hollywood hokum. I too was surprised to see Ronnie arrive in one car (with siren on) with only one or two other people with him in this crowd of hundreds of not too happy Klansmen. The way he greets everybody shows, with other scenes, that local law enforcement likely knew who was in the Klan, or were even members themselves. I was thinking of a good trick ending where the head Klansman has his hood on and when he takes it off, it's Reagan. The same with Ginger's whipping. She sure didn't seem to be very hurt after all she went through. Weren't there a few black actors in some of the crowd scenes? Certainly not as many as you might expect to see in your average southern town of the time. And it looks like the place where Doris works is a whites only establishment.

    Okay. Kids on the right, go to CVS, kids on the left hit Walgreens. But first let's enjoy Ma's possum surprise. *Ma and Pa Kettle's Meth Lab* Due to the Great Recession and the end of Pa's 30 years of unemployment insurance, the Kettles have to find a new way to bring in money. They decide to start a meth lab, having the advantage of using 15 children to get pseudoephedrine at the local drugstores. The rest is easy.

    Ferlin Husky had a big hit with this song, Wings of a Dove. B & W Color http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1L5FIuiYug
  14. It stared out looking like a noir and then slowly turned into a rather average melodrama. The one redeeming feature was the setting and Klan subject matter. This is one pic where I figured Steve would not be dressed in a pinstripe suit, which he so often seemed to be. Uncle Bob may have been right that there is a superficial resemblance to Streetcar, but the Ginger Roger's character is no Blanche Dubois. It was a somewhat interesting curio, but not something that I'd like to see again and again. I thought Ginger was being held by two Klansmen while she was being whipped, not tied to a post.

    Speaking of the Breeders, they did a charming, countrified version of Drivin' on 9. Plus a video with some well known vehicular movie clips.
