  1. I got the Blu3D on disk when it came out, and yes, the original theatrical version's pretty impressive. There were only about two or three musicals (The French Line, Those Redheads From Seattle) that tried going 3D in '51-'53, but Kate was the only one that knew how to use the format enough to benefit from a deep Broadway stage. πŸ‘
  2. Um, that bit of sheep-like hive-mind MST3K parroting was actually from The Unearthly (1957), as Tor Johnson didn't technically have any lines in "Bride of the Monster". He did get work elsewhere, you know. πŸ˜‰
  3. Thought it was Brutus in the original Segar comic strip, and no one quite knows how it became "Bluto" in the Fleischer cartoons. A better question is how the hulking town-bully Bluto of Fleischer's cartoons and Segar's strip became a mere wolf-whistling horn-dog in Famous's 50's cartoons.
  4. (Alone, after realizing her mistake that the man she threw out was doing the right thing all along): "Oh, Eddie--You're not 'yellow'...You're WHITE! 😒 " - Broadway Melody (1929)
  5. (In his defense, Joss Whedon claimed he had tried to write it as a sarcastic Buffy-style "Huh, that's what happens..." wisecrack. Unaware that Storm in the Marvel comics never makes Buffy-style wisecracks, or any other kinds.)
  6. No, you're thinking of the much better Popeye Meets Ali Baba's Forty Thieves. (Obviously, as that phrase wasn't in Aladdin.) Also in the public domain, as all three Technicolors were:
  7. "Twelve guests for dinner, and I'm serving them hot Nothing!"
  8. Not true, we did have someone, appropriately enough, post a review of Murder By Death (1976)...Can't have a Clue discussion without it.
  9. It comes as a shock to most gays that they don't have a "monopoly" on ANYTHING they like. πŸ˜„ Just try getting into a discussion of why Fox and Paramount thought Mommie Dearest and Valley of the Dolls would be serious award-fodder.
  10. I still watch, even though the Oscar committee themselves destroyed the Best Picture race in 2004 and 2009, because of Harvey Weinstein and "Dark Knight" fans, respectively. And although both are still evil, can we at least repeal the '04 changes, now that the bad man isn't around anymore?
  11. Okay, who watches Home Alone 3, then? πŸ˜„ And FTR, Trump could also be cut out of the 1994 Little Rascals movie with no loss except a cheap early-90's "Rich guy" joke that was basically all we knew about Trump back when he was still an obnoxious slob but relatively sane.
  12. Amazon Prime tends to get a LOT of the obscure 70's network TV movies that fell into public domain. TCM doesn't. And that brings up the other obvious question, "If you just saw it...?" πŸ€”
  13. There were a lot of white gospel singers in 70's country. Lily may have been "supposed" to be June Cash.
  14. The return of the Drive-In (now in state parks, with FM radio and inflatable screens, and not cement parking lots) and the fall of AMC...Never say the Pandemic never brought great things to the movies. πŸ˜„ We don't have any of the makeshift drive-ins in our area, though, so I've had to make do with that collection of "Drive-In Concession Ads" on Amazon Prime, and run a 10-minute countdown before my Blu-ray movies while running for Coke, bathroom and microwave popcorn. 🍿😎
  15. "But you know how these stars are, sir, they'll have their little eccentricities and scandals..." "They have little peccadillos?" (pause) "...THAT could be one reason." - Benny Hill And, in the case of Peter Bogdanovich's The Cat's Meow (2001), became one. I've still heard it debunked, though.
