Know what I find odd? That Joel seems to be quite nurturing of Gypsy, yet Gypsy's performer is what caused Joel to quit the show!

You HAVE to be kidding. 90 laughs? This must be one of the most under-rated episodes of all time! The "Greg Brady" reference ALONE is worth 90 little laughs... If you haven't watch this one, do so. You won't be disappointed... and ADD A LAUGH DAMMIT!

My mother's family picked cotton. I've been to Helena, AR and have driven through Hayti, MO. Its still an economically depressed area, but with a rich musical heritage. You can practically hear the old bluesmen wailing away, as you tour the area.
No doubt, but there weren't corrupt people, with just such schemes.

Given recent revelations about similar programs, private prisons, and concentration camps for immigrants, this film rings very true today. It is sad that all of Greg Brady's attempts to bring attention to this pressing social issue, it is still with us today...

Hmmm... Asshole crooked cops, hypocritical rich judges, totally unfair and broken legal system designed not to serve justice but to make money. Yea no real change to this day. In fact i would say things have gotten worse.

Geez, first the sheriff is a peeping tom/misogynist/near-child molester, and then the judge is a b*#@h and a half for sentencing them as vagrants when they were definitely on their way to somewhere. The girls were more likely to get in trouble working as slaves on the farm than if they had just been allowed to go on their way. Those rotten 1950s!

I love Servo's reaction to the "ain't gonna make a cotton picker outta me" guy when he starts that number up: "Shut up. Don't even start." My sentiments exactly. I love how mean Josh's Servo can be.

Does anyone else suspect that this movie was supposed to star black actors? It's essentially a story about enslavement and rhythmic group singing in cotton fields, somehow contrived in a way to feature a strictly white cast.

I have the same suspicions about Tormented. Not just because the main character was a jazz musician, but because of the line where the father of the bride says "It's bad enough to have a musician marry into the family, but a JAZZ musician..." I daresay somebody had to tweak the script a little.

Fun Fact: the guy singing "You Ain't Gonna Make A Cotton Picker Outta Me" song? That's Eddie Cochran, best known for writing "Summertime Blues". He died a couple years after this while on tour. Really talented guy in a really bad movie.

Joel and the bots were stumped by 'If you want an Italian haircut.' I believe it meant 'I'm going to rip your hair out.' refering to the short hair style that Italian actresses of the 50's made popular.
