I recently purchased the DVD of Ren? Cardona?s Santa Claus (1959), thanks to this [Movie Morlocks blog|http://moviemorlocks.com/2008/12/16/one-helluva-christmas/]. It's undoubtedly the looniest movie I've seen in a long, long time. A big-eared devil tries to stop a creepy looking Santa Claus from delivering toys. Merlin the Magician comes to Santa's rescue. Santa lives in a cloud castle and listens to what the children of the world are saying thanks to a big set of rubber lips mounted on a computer. And it gets weirder. Originally intended for kids, it's probably more likely to give them nightmares. But for fans of the ultra goofy, it's a Christmas 'disasterpiece'!

Ha-ha, Kyle... Mine was for what passed as a liberal synod in those days -LCA (early 60s)! I attend a much more progressive congregation now- and now ELCA. A far cry for what was preached then. Literally-- Thank God.

BTW- *Without Onions* is about girls and boys not giving into sexual temptation with each other. And like so many topics of that period, the Church preached with code words.

h3. Oh, no!

h5. How could I forget *Blue Demin* (1959)???!!! With Carol Lynley and Brandon deWilde. He gets her pregnant, and Warren Berlinger talks them out of an abortion.... I know I've screwed up the plot points a bit, but Warren Berlinger was in both *Blue Denim* and *Without Onions*!! He was cast as the unthreatening male friend in both!

LOL, *Showgirls* was on my list, it must have dropped out when I copy-pasted from the text editor. It was first -- that's why *Striptease* is referred to as "another" stripper movie. I saw *Showgirls* in an advance screening, and I lost count of the number of times I went to see it in the theatre.

Oh I think I'm going to blush! ;)

 

Chip - there is no guiltier pleasure, for me, than actually owning that fancy collector's set edition of *Showgirls* that came out about 5 years ago. Let's just say... it's been fun at times. B-)

Uh-oh...I liked it.

 

Okay, here's my guilty pleasure: "SCREAMING MIMI.'

 

Anita Ekberg all the way: "A great dame with a great dane."

 

Guilty as charged.

Not quite a tagline. Phil Carey (the only actor taller that the statuesque Anita Ekberg in Hollywood) delivers that line within the movie as she walks down a rain-soaked back lotted street with a raincoat and a great dane.

 

What an image. Have you ever seen the film?

Instead of helping up your poor husband from the floor...you didn't change the channel? He seems like a nice guy. Tsk! Tsk! Read your wedding vows again. ;-)

He is a good guy but like me he could not turn away from this movie. Yes, it's that bad but in a fun way.

 

By the time it was over we had laughed so much we were tuckered out.

Douglas Sirk. Anything by Douglas Sirk. I apologize to anyone who might be offended. But when Jane Wyman says in *Magnificent Obsession* (I think I have this right) after her operation:

>*I think is see a little.*

I always laugh. My bad.

Wait a minute, CineMaven! Wouldn't you like to write something so funny you would make your friend's spouses laugh so hard they cry!? I guess it should be in comedy, however.
