The pickpocket is also Wormy in Gunslinger and Todd in Viking Women and the Sea Serpent, plus a bit part in Teenage Caveman. Corman also used the shopkeep from Giant Leeches in a large amount of projects. The man certaintly loved his little stable of actors...

I don't know if this should be here or under the riff tab, but it seems like a good riff.
Watch Dr. Forrester reach for popcorn on TV Frank's lap 5-6 feet away. =^) Pretty slick...these guys were/are geniuses on many levels.

Here's a fun anecdote for y'all: Several summers ago I was a wildland firefighter for the forest service. One time we had just arrived at a fire, and I was changing from street clothes into PPE (firefighting gear) in the back of the truck. Suddenly, the back doors of the truck fly open thanks to a gust of wind and the doors not being latched, and there about 20 feet away was a bus loaded with inmates from the women's prison who had come out to help fight the fire. So I'm standing there in my underwear with a bus-load of male deprived women prisoners hooting and cheering at me "yeah baby!" and "take it off! wooo!" In retrospect it's hilarious, at the time I felt violated lol.

Say what you will about Roger Corman (padding and all), he made real stories. They weren't necessarily really GOOD stories, but they had a plot, no matter how ridiculous, and a beginning, middle, and end. The same canNOT be said for the Coleman Francis movies.

Of all the social education shorts they've watched, that one was actually relatively painless...the characters were even kind of believable. Someone actually spent longer than the usual ten minutes writing that and it shows.

Man, the host segment arc with Servo dating Gypsy is so funny. "After the intense discomfort of your almost sibling-like relationship sends your date into the crapper, you'll feel the hot sting of embarrassment on your cheeks for months."

The thought of Michelle Pfeiffer spending the night with TV's Frank made me throw up a little in my mouth. But no more than the thought of her with Jack Nicholson in The Witches of Eastwick.

I wonder if the police station in this is the same set used as the police station used in in Teenage Strangler.

Well, sometimes I get distracted by the extras when the main action is anything but. A woman in a white hat passes by at least 13 times in the first couple of minutes during the opening scene of teeming New Orleans. This is the closest I paid attention to the entire film.

This is not the first time I've seen Dr. F and Frank do the TV sketch, but it's the first time I noticed how long their arms are. Did a double-take when Dr. F comforts Frank on the shoulder, and had to go back and catch all the reaches; so funny.

Now I know why they had to take a boat through the swamp. Betty Lou's handbag would never have made it through airport screening!

Ah cutoff shorts, stylish, sexy, and stupid. You see there is an extremely tiny insect in the swamps that we call Red-bugs. They like to bite at exposed skin; they won’t feel it at first but later they will start to itch, and then itch in a way you can’t imagine. I have scars because it has gotten so bad before I’d rather tear my own skin off than feel the itch.

Have fun ladies.

That uncomfortable moment when you realize that Joel and the bots are reciting that episode of Star Trek verbatim. And you realize you had enough Star Trek knowledge to realize that.

Man, what the hell, man, they're doggin' on two of my favorite musicals: Annie and Chess. So not cool. When I was a wee lass, I was super majorly into Annie. My two role models were Annie and Punky Brewster. But it's okay. I can take their good-natured ribbing. And you wanna know why? 'Cause... the... SUN'LL COME OUT TOMORROW. BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT TOMORROW, THERE'LL BE SUN...

Y'think perhaps the running gag regarding the various possible names of Touch Connors is kind of a very early, "beta test" version of the "Names of Dave Ryder" bit in Space Mutiny?

The movie is basically filler between the short and the host segments, which are hilarious.
