Todd, thanks very much for including my earlier post on horror films as well as your comments back there. I have just posted a review on the 1985 film COCOON for Overlooked Films this week. I could upload it only after my return from work late this evening, so I hope I'm not too late.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all...though some of your (anti)favorite films are certainly more overlooked than COCOON, still...wonder what Tahnee Welch is up to?

Jeff Flugel said...

Todd, thanks very much for automatically linking to my posts (including the older Man in a Suitcase one)!

Much appreciated!

Randy Johnson said...

Juri over at Pulpetti has one I think you missed.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Randy...it went up relatively late in the day, and I did miss it till you pointed it out.

Jeff--not at all. Though there's no automation involved on my part.... Thanks!

I was unavble to post a comment at Yvette Banek's place, which no longer has Name/URL as an option.

So Yvette, if you should see this ...

"Rochester" was Eddie Anderson, not Mantan Moreland.

Interestingly, the two comedians appear together in an early segment of Love American Style, which stars Flip Wilson as a pool husler who gets hustled himself by Gail Fisher of Mannix.
Anderson and Moreland are two old guys who bet on the game.

Apologies for using the backdoor.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Mike...more leaving the package at the neighbor's house.

Yeah, Moreland's usual shtick always struck me as more Fetchit than Anderson's ever was, even as late as the film SPIDER BABY, and I'm glad to read he found some decent dramatic work, even if fleetingly, in LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE.
