  3. A colleague recently inadvertantly created a disturbing hybrid Kevin Bacon movie; The Hollow Woodsman. An invisible child molester! Shudder.

  4. Zero degrees of Kevin Bacon!

    THE SLASH IS GREENER

  6. Had to think about Mitchum’s film choices re. his career, no true horror films in the lot, although CAPE FEAR and NIGHT OF THE HUNTER to a lesser extent could be damn scary. As for him being paired up with any horror icons, he did play opposite Vincent Price in HIS KIND OF WOMAN. I would’ve loved to have seen him in a film with Lorre, both sleepy-eyed types, one beefy and laconic, the other idiosyncratic. They could’ve shared smokes, easily. And come to think of it, they both got high, Bob with his pot, and (sadly) Peter with his morphine.

    I’d like to see Mitchum and Lorre as conjoined twins. Eight screenwriters would be deployed to explain their differing accents. Final answer: Lorre, the head on Mitch’s shoulder, was comatose for twenty years, then woke up while Mitchum was stationed overseas in WWII. German was the first language he heard.

    In fact, maybe Peter goes over to Hitler, leading to a miniature version of WWII enacted entirely in the twins’ body. A whole third front is opened! Maybe we could call it BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER.

    I was wondering how to pun THE LUSTY MEN but you did it.

  11. Or GI JOE, DER VERLORENE.

  12. Musical mayhem!

    Lorre of course has his musical moment in Silk Stockings.

    ANCHORS AIEEE!
    GRAVEDIGGERS OF 1933
    Er…
    THE STORY OF VERNON AND IRENE’S CASTLE OF FREAKS

  13. In my review of the Herbert Ross Pennies From Heaven I called it Gravediggers of 1933.

  14. I really really ought to get hold of the TV series and watch it. I have a sneaking fondness for the movie, if only for the two or three stand-out moments, the photography and Ken Adam’s designs.

    ..lol..Mitchum and Lorre in a “stoner series”….Up in Smoke,Pete and Bob’s Excellent Adventure,Dude,wheres my Car?..Out of the Stash

  16. The Big Lowenstein.

    Now, if only Peter had followed in Bob’s steps and recorded a calypso album…

  17. Christopher Says:

    I’ve still to this day never,(to my recollection,heard the famous Calypso music ala BOB..I’m a little afraid to..afraid I might hear “Leeeeaning Leaaaning,leaning on the everlasting arm…..”to a calypso beat..
