  1. Playing Yourself!

    Just thought of a couple more. Seems like boxers often were playing themselves in movies with people like Joe Louis and Max Baer and even the glass jawed Primo Carnera. ONe movie that had both Baer and Carnera was with Myrna Loy called The Prizefighter and the Lady, but the funny part is Baer was playing a character and Carnera was playing himself.

    Yeah that's it with Maris on the left and Mantle on right. Frawley was a big baseball fan.

    He is on all the time in primo time on the wine ads.

    No, though I've seen that film. I'm talking about a film called something like Safe at HOme Plate which had both Mantle and Maris in it from the early 1960's during the home run contest for Maris. Pepper was really good as Maris in that film though. Looked like him and had his personality.

    Wasn't Paul LYnde in New Faces? Also maybe Alice Ghostley. Too bd they didn't have parts in Frankenheimer's filme.

    They shold call them Blanches since they are awfully tame at ten am.
  8. Strange things in 50s and 60s sci-fi movies

    I'm old enough to remember watching those hearings or whatever ya wanta call them. Didn't good old LBJ twist his elbow into presiding over that mess? Magic Bullet now only means some kind of blender thing.

    How about Marjoe Gortner who was the child evangelist who wanted to go straight. The documentary about him was called Marjoe. Of course there were also all those times that famous baseball players like Mickey Mantle and Don Drysdale were in movies like ones with Doris Day. I think I remember one with Roger Maris probably due to his 61 homer run against the Babe Ruth legend. Didn't they call it 61 [with an asterisk] or something since he accomplished it in a longer season. I seem to also remember people like Yogi, and Giants' players plus of course earlier Jackie Robinson played himself in his bio flick.
  11. Anyone who forages at ACME would have gotten more fowl off the bone particularly if Chuck Jones was planning the scene.
  12. He shoulda let the guy who did the original movie The Room speak.
  13. the honeymoon killers

    I saw it when it first came out at some small theater in Manhattan. Shirley Stoler is incredible as is the music by Mahler. It may be brutal but it is only imitating real life.
  14. Strange things in 50s and 60s sci-fi movies

    No offense but Bill Warren is very inaccurate about some things in his books. They might be enjoyable to read but I would not rely on them being correct factually a lot of times.
  15. A Tonsorial Anachronism, Perhaps?

    WE used to do that pphone prank when I was a kid about Prince Albert in a can.
