Jung said that?
From Escape. 1948. Listening to the idiot gibberings of a parrot. Paul Frees as the parrot. From the horror story by Robert S. Hichens. Wiki- (“Guildea”) was not initially well-received, with Frederic Taber Cooper calling the story “a hideous bit of morbidity” and Edmund Wilson dismissing the story as “trash”. Later…
Hold on to your butts.
The Master Mentalist.
Weird cult film I had never heard of with a long list of celebrity cameos. Also mentioned on the In Memoriam Gottfried podcast. Once little seen and almost lost, but resurrected by Warner Archive. Rock and Roll and Albania. Albania, Albania, you border on the Adriatic.
Directed by Fritz Lang. Cinematography by Milton R. Krasner. Edward G. Robinson. Never seen it. There is a decent print on Youtube, and a terrible one to avoid. Coming up next.
1937-38. Metropolitan Museum of Art.
With Josh Olson and Joe Dante on Trailers From Hell. Podcast. New.
I’ve been stranded in the combat zone.
1976-77 NBC. 16 episodes.
Guess you recognize me now, without the glasses? Bullet race, huh?
Wow. From the In Memoriam ep. of the Gilbert Gottfried podcast. Ken Berry. 1972 ABC summer sketch comedy with cast of soon to be stars. Teri Garr, Steve Martin, Bob Einstein (writer). 6 episodes.

Wow, this guy has an amazing Youtube channel, with lots of rarities. I couldn’t find much of anything on The Corner Bar. ABC 1972-73. Eugene Roche, Anne Meara, J.J. Barry, Vincent Schiavelli, Ron Carey. 16 episodes, two seasons, with cast changes.
Game is on CBS and I don’t get that channel with my crappy antenna. Went upstairs to check the HD TV and no good there either. Might improve when the sun goes down. There are a bunch of parties in New Orleans tonight for people not to watch the game. This is your Super Bowl open thread anyway.
Apparently Mr. Trump’s fine tan is due to good genes. Just like Cliff Clavin. Look how white I used to be.
New 1974 Schlitz sea rescue.
Heist film coming up next. Found on Youtube. Kirk Douglas. I was looking for this solely because of the great poster art. Supposed to have a good car chase. (Update) This is my new favorite movie just for the fight scenes. They’re great. That car chase is insanely over the top but also very funny.
