Motometrist,

I've never danced in a toga with Mrs. Danvers. That was just a shower curtain.

With chocolate,
It's all Greek to JJ

Re: "If you are into Küng..."

I saw that movie on TV. The best part was when the savage natives snuck onto the boat and snatched the blonde woman for the big gorilla.

;)

HeyHey it's JJ,

Dancing in a shower curtain with Mrs. Danvers, that's good-- two Hitchcock concepts in one post!

We all go a little Madeline Elster sometimes... (ooh, another reference, lol)

"I'm actually drinking a sodie right now...A Toast! To my friend Gorgar, musician, movie lover and all around great guy, but not nessarilly in that order. Jack of all trades, Master of none" and Nancy throws her piece of toast at Gorgar hitting the lucky part of his head. "HUZZAH!!"

Note...that toast can be eaten in Emergencies, you never know.

Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Falk could relate to that.

There's an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" called The Glass Eye. I never forgot the ending.

It featured Jessica Tandy as a spinster obsessed with a ventriloquist (and also starred William Shatner as a minor character and narrator).

Its always in the SANDwiches (GROAN). Seriously, when we would go to the beach at South Padre Island when I was a wee girl, the bolonga sanwiches always had sand in them, made them crunchy!! :P

Baron Sardonicus,
Re:...called The Glass Eye.
That's interesting. THE OUTER LIMITS had an episode written by Harlan Ellison called, THE DEMON WITH THE GLASS HAND. I have that whole series (1963-65) on DVD. Coincidenza?

Gaius,
Re:"...the bolonga sanwiches..."
BTW, "groan" is right...but clever. I love bologna sandwiches. I had two of them yesterday. Never tried it with sand though.

Demon With The Glass Hand is a great story penned by non-other than the world's crankiest Jew....Harlan Ellison! ;^)
I prayed to Harlan, and he took care of the neighbor's barking dogs in five minutes with a baseball bat! (borrowed that line from George Carlin)

Re:"Harlan Ellison"
And yet he's such a mild mannered guy! :)
When the Sci-Fi Channel first started he actually had a Saturday morning half hour show from his unbelievable library, on at least 2 floors. His temper has gotten him fired from more TV jobs, the first and best remake of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, THE STARLOST and one other show. This guys aboot 5'4" in heels but what a bark. And man, does he hate Gene Roddenberry. I hope you've read his GUARDIAN ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER which includes his script, which dispells a lot of rumors aboot it. E.g. Scotty isn't a drug dealer. And contains his completely unbiased account of several STAR TREK experiences including scripts for the movies. He's still promising volume 3 of the DV trilogy called, THE FINAL DANGEROUS VISIONS. It's only been aboot 40 years. He sure is fun though. Did you ever catch the episode of CIMMARON STRIP(1967-68) he wrote? I loved that series.

Motzky,

I'd buy the entire Outer Limits on video if MGM didn't release the series on those double-sided cheapo discs that always seem faulty. I bought season one but waited quite a while to open it, then discovered some of the discs were bad. Same thing happened with season two of Green Acres. Same studio, too.

My Lord Baron,
Re:"Caveat emptor"
Gee, I bought both seasons close to ten years ago. I remember waiting for them to come down in price then I finally got the used all for under $20.00 they're perfect, I've watched them all a few times so I guess I lucked out. I know they were re-packaged and sold right aboot the time I got my initial set. I love watching those SF noir shows. I like the remake and I have a package of 6 DVDs of that each one a different theme, e.g. Time Travel, Outer Space, etc.

Tom, I used to watch Harlan's show every Saturday morning, and my girlfriend at the time (8 years ago, at least), really wasn't happy with me after seeing how much I loved him! ;^)
Oh well, the woman wasn't that smart.
I'll have to find Guardian On The Edge Of Forever, and would LOVE to read The Final Dangerous Visions when the cranky old dude gets it published.
Never saw the Cimmaron Strip episode, either, but thanks for the knowledge. My favorite novel by the old Jew is still Spider Kiss, btw.

Tomicus Promicus,

I do like "The Outer Limits" too. It's got so much imagination. And I enjoy the black and white photography. Glad your discs of the show are perfect!

Zzzzzzzz,

.et al.,
Re:"Restaurant trivia."
I thought it would be nice to reactivate our trivia contests. Same rules, it lasts as long as it last, any subject is fair game, no looking up answers. I think my first question is a fairly easy one:

Who is Admiral Sir Miles Messervy?

TPM

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 1:45:07 PM PDT
Mr. TPM,

I don't know the answer. However if you say it's fairly easy, I feel quite the dolt! ;)

Just by chance I recently reread (for about the third time) "The Man With the Golden Gun". I hadn't remembered that Admiral Sir Miles Messervy was revealed as being none other than the mysterious "M" of Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Am I correct sir?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 2:28:08 PM PDT
man of dust,
Re:"...M" of Her Majesty's Secret Service."
You are Correct Sir! Extremely well done. Bonus points if you can tell me "Q's" name. It is in the film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME that both M and Q are referred to by name. I love reading Fleming's classics. I'm old enough to remember when the Bond novels were listed on the best seller list that was printed each week at the back of TIME magazine. I believe the first one I remember seeing was ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE. (which is actually my all time favorite Bond Movie).
There's no rule on asking Restaurant Trivia questions, we don't have to take turns. If this becomes a theme at this joint, as so many little things do, e.g. Movie lines, music lyrics, commercials, etc. It'll have it's own shelf life.
Gee, you may even win a "No-Prize."

Simarf,
Mot
