Did anyone know the woman with the pencil in her hair that kept disappearing was the woman in Christmas vacation that sang the Star Spangled Banner? I am great with faces and swear I didn't even look that up but I still swear by it! She even acts the same after all those years...

Why did the detectives drive 10 miles to call from a diner? The long antenna on the car would indicate they had a radio.

The short.. along with many other things I've seen/read/heard makes me wonder why ANYONE would be stupid enough to choose a living that is based on success of sales. You go to work all day and don't get paid because you didn't sell anything? F*** that!

Ed worked like the big studios making serials. The plot was based on what stock footage was at hand.


Nuclear Explosions

Donald Petkus - 2 months ago

While standing too close to a nuclear explosion seems odd, the US military did deploy troops near nuclear bomb tests. The idea was to get troops over their fears about fighting on a radio-active battlefield . The Atomic Veterans organization is a good source for further information.

If there were door-to-door car salesmen, what else was sold door-to-door? Puppies? Dinner plates? Bras? "Ma'am, you look like someone who could use a good, sturdy bra..."

Okay, I just watched "Ed Wood," (starring Johnny Depp) so now i absolutely HAVE to watch this. It'll be a little sad to see Bela Lugosi, but the humor will override that.

I just noticed the actor who plays Captain Birdman of Homicide in this episode is the same guy who plays Day Drinking Grandpa in 'Teenagers From Outer Space'.

Apparently Servo noticed too because he uses the same riff - singing the theme song from 'New Zoo Review' - in both episodes (01:08:00 in this one and at 00:33:45 in 'Teenagers...')

Ed's one of my favorites, but Plan 9 would have been TOO easy. Personally I think they should have attacked "Night of the Ghouls". Little known and worse than can be imagined. Still, this was all worth it if only for HIRED: THE MUSICAL! Years later I still sing it! (Yep, and I get some weird looks for it too!)

I've been searching for a full-time job for the last couple of years (why, oh why did I decide to become an academic??), and I've now decided that when I get a job, I'm going to announce it to everyone by posting the Hired! musical everywhere.

Ok, so grandpa 'naps a lot' from Teenagers from Outer Space is Lieutenant Birdman! Also I was racking my brain for who the other cop reminded me of...Johnny the Boy from Mad Max! The kid Max chains to the burning car and hands a hack saw to...DEAD RINGER!

Couldn't they have at least put somebody in that octopus suit to give it some movement? The ridiculous portrayal of the snake in the tree, the quicksand, the octopus, the boulder, the atomic explosion, Lobo, etc. was so bad it was entertaining and perfect for warming up to Manos.

I think it's pretty interesting that Lobo was the one who succeeded in Bella's experiments. Bella failed every time. Lobo succeeded.

Replace Crow's "No advertising (whistling)" retorts with "No springs (whistling)" and you've got the Case of Spring Fever short sprite.

Have you ever wondered if Tor Johnson ever acted in any of his movies? What if the character Lobo is really how he acted off-screen? Mouth open, drooling and sweaty, randomly attacking strangers, etc.

It seems to me that this movie is where Futurama got a lot of its inspiration for Prof. Farnsworth.

If you're going to sell cars door to door,(which is puzzling in and of itself) make sure to sell in a neighborhood where there are driveways.

The bop riff at about 32:40. I should know the exact tune, but I don't. (Something from Parker or Diz...?) :o Still a great touch, though. 8)

Crow: There are more and more trends every day and it's critical that we all know about them and react. --And this was before Twitter or Facebook. Or even MySpace.

For people interested in streaming it, it is legally streaming on Amazon Instant Video and is free for Prime members. They're all missing from Netflix though :(

The sad thing is this is probably Ed Wood's best film. Compared to some of his other work, this is Citizen Kane.
