Khayam the one and only

The return of the Limerwreck — the Howard Hughes 3D stripperthon SON OF SINBAD is a weird and delightful Arabian Nights entertainment, featuring eighth-century pole-dancing and Vincent Price as tent-maker and aspiring poet Omar Khayam. Just the kind of thing to stir my poetic muse, if that’s what you call it.

Two on SON OF SINBAD, here and here, and one on THE TINGLER. The Vincentennial continues!

The sensation you get in your spine

Is the work of a creature malign

With a horrible crack

It’ll fracture your back

And render you truly supine.
