Two Times Twice as Gay





It really doesn’t get any more twice as gay than that.

I guess this also counts as a weird tribute to the very hetero Stanley Donen, since the TWICE AS GAY caption comes from the trailer from ON THE TOWN.

I seem to be ignoring the Oscars.

    I see that Warner Brothers misspelled “Thesus (sic)”. Was there a problem with the “i” on the typewriter? Was Ian Hunter listed as “an Hunter”? Or did the studio believe there is no “I” in all-star cast?

  3. I don’t know which is more compelling: Keenan Wynn the Human Waterfall or the bland yet cryptic promise of “EXCITEMENT”.

    Faint memory of a vintage “Scrappy” cartoon that used to run on the Captain Satellite show. Scrappy and his sidekick Opie/Vonsey were doing Robin Hood, and the cartoon was framed as a trailer for a movie. At the end, the voiceover said something like “See it! On second thought, don’t bother. We’ve shown you the whole picture.”

  4. “Thesus” should be “Theseus.” No “i” required. Just a Warner economy drive to save on “e”s, I suppose, which is why they never hired Peter Greenaway.

    That will teach me to be a pedant. I before e except when you’re an Athenian.

  6. I think this is the best … one of these … that you’ve done.

  7. Thanks!

    Really ought to come up with a name for… these…

    Trollers? Troilers? Straylers? Failers?
