It took me so many viewings to realize that they were supposed to be vampires. or something. I still don't know.

Funny as it seems, with the fish tanks, humans can exist in space for a few minutes w/o a space suit. Not really recommended, but it can be done. Space suits are for extended EVA's.

At 30:26, the radio operator is in front of a flat earth map on the wall which is obscured by a globe. Why not have one or the other or neither?

Geez, these old marriage shorts are so painfully embarrassing I can't enjoy them... without the riffing, that is. Wow, a whole three months of knowing each other!


Best introductory Experiment for an actual ~filmmaker~?

My old pal Eve, on one or both sides of the camera in such indie hits as 'Victor's Big Score', 'DOGS: The Rise and Fall of Brooklyn's Only All-Girl Bookie Joint', and 'Romeo & Juliet in Yiddish' (and a few eps of network TV), was way too busy working, writing, financing projects, and so on during the run of MST3k to have ever seen it...and wasn't much of a 'TV viewer' afterward (during SciFi re-runs), either.
It occurred to me, now that she's more semi-retired, raising kids, occasionally editing or D.P.ing someone else's project, she'd have the time and setting to enjoy some Experiments...or at least ~try~ one. So, I'm soliciting suggestions of 'Experiments for ~movie people~'. I'm leaning mostly toward Dr. F/TV's Frank-period (Clayton's 'Groucho-esque' personna and their dynamic is more likely to resonate with Eve's cosmopolitan New York sensibility, I think, than the SciFi era's Mad Science gang....plus she might remember Conniff from Speakeasy in the early 1980s). I'm also likely to send one that doesn't feature a short; I want her introduction to theater-segments to be a ~movie~. Probably not a 'space opera' to start with, either.
So far, I'm thinking of 'Lassie: The Painted Hills', 'Catalina Caper', 'Santa Claus', 'Tormented' (none of them, at least, feature Horrible production values)...'The Magic Sword'......
'Daddy-O'?
'Cave Dwellers'?
Help me rope in another devotee........

From the Wikipedia article for Red Zone Cuba:

Back on American soil, the three engage in a variety of crimes to get to the home of Chastain's wife to help her mine the metals her husband had mentioned in Cuba. They throw café owner Cliff Weismeyer (Charles F. Harter) down a well and Griffin rapes his blind daughter (Elaine Gifford), then they steal his car and escape; they also hop Mr. Wilson's train in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

There was a rape scene in this nightmare, too? Brutal. Kudos to the boys for editing that out.

Rondo "The Brute Man" Hatten played basically this same role in an old Sherlock Holmes movie (the ones that had Basil Rathbone as Holmes), except that instead of a bitter, "deformed" ex-collegiate football star he plays this "back-breaking" muscle for some jewel thief or whatnot that Holmes is tracking down. I guess there must've been a thing for "back-breakers" as the "bad guy" in movies for a couple minutes about 60-70 years ago.
