Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)

Steve Martin and Carl Reiner. Parody using film noir clips. I think I enjoyed it a little more once I had seen most of the movies used. In the 80s I had seen none.

I watched this on Youtube so often I finally bought the DVD and continue to watch it often. Goldie Hawn, Chevy Chase. Dudley Moore has a funny bit as a would-be swinger. Written and directed by Colin Higgins. Beware of the dwarf.

Usborne Guide to the Supernatural World Usborne Guide to the Supernatural World

Nice cover. A note to Golden Horn members that the two Story Types tags that were broken are now not. Books and Found on Youtube. The second has a special feature that adds videos to the recommended doohickey at the bottom of the post automatically. It was set to “Video.” I haven’t figured out if Books does anything…

Chevy Citation Commercial Chevy Citation Commercial

81-82. A wee bit bizarre. Very 80s for so early in the 80s. Do I want to know the backstory of Single Person in a superhero costume?

Love means never having to say you’re sorry for mining a theme for all it’s worth.

Love at First Bite (1979) Love at First Bite (1979)
