That shot is from The Incredible Shrinking Woman, just before her boat enters the eerie fog. I particularly like the ending, where she knits socks for a spider, which befriends her.

And the Shrinking Man had that darn cat, who wanted to turn him into the first

Sure you can be up on that silver screen, honey. There's just

one simple condition...

 

 

*Bring Me the Head of Harry Cohn*

 

After White Fang interferes with Glenn Ford's romance with Rita on the set of Gilda,

Ford swears revenge and offers a generous reward if someone accomplishes the title

deed, but so many Tinsel Towners come forward agreeing to do it for free or even

pay for the privilege, that Ford has to drop the idea due to all the publicity.

It's my fervent hope that the object in the upper left hand of the photo is just

a dog's long black tail. :)

Is that the one where Tallulah Bankhead and William Bendix fight to eat Zuzu's petals as the angel points out that James Stewart would not have been a nazi spy if he killed himself?

Say, you look familiar. Didn't you run the

**** schnitzel stand at Nuremberg in '36?

(Pssst, honey, you just use one arm).

 

 

*Plan Nein from Outer Space*

 

On the brink of defeat, the Nazis launch their only prototype of the V-3 rocket, containing a

clone of Herman Goering (Tor Johnson). The rocket is caught in a time warp and doesn't land

until 1956, when it crashes into southern California. The Goering clone tries to revivify the Third

Reich by turning Cali corpses into zombies, but their bodies reject Goering's diet of sauerbraten

and peppermint schnapps, and he abandons his scheme and commits suicide by ingesting a poisoned taco. Director Ed Wood uncharacteristically agreed to round off his $11.95 budget up to $12.00, in order to pay for acting lessons and an extra rope "belt" for Tor Johnson.

Three Gobs and a Guy

 

 

 

Mr. Rantings builds his dream home of the future with every electronic labor saving device developed

during the 2nd coming of the McKettrick Supplicants. While on a vacation to the Catskills to attend

a performance of Alvie Singer at Drummond's Irish Bar and Thrill, located close to Grosingers,

Rantings' maintenance man is mislead by Francis, the talking pool, who has a famous cousin

named Hal.

 

Unknowlingly mixing the chlorine improperly, the maintenance man goes about his business, and

turns the whirlpool on high while an enormous glob of transmission fluid accidently drops

from a malfunctioning plane high in the sky that is following Howard Hughes tragic Beverly Hills

flight pattern where he crashes and learns that kleenex can provide a labor saving device known

as "germ filters."

 

Patterns of sludge gather in a triptych at the bottom of the pool, spelling disaster for Rantings'

daughter's engagement party featuring pop star Sister Goo Goo.The maintenance man is then

forced to call British Petroleum and ask for help, which obviously never comes.

And Walter Slezak steals the Reichsmarks that befuddled old Henry Hull was supposed to stow in the purser's safe just before the dance floor opened up & dunked them all in the ocean...

Yup.
