621. The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)

I’m appreciative you copied the heading format. It falls flawlessly in with the others. Were you to ever do any more replicate the episode number, the movie, then the year as you did on 617. Cheers Goldash!

Other key roles… yeah, like the random KGB agent we see pretending to drive and another guy standing and staring.

…and Tors Johnson. :slight_smile:

Torso Johnson, Johnny Longtorso’s pall. Torso Johnson and Torso Johnson sold separately.

I just noticed that article just blatantly doxxes Bob Labsans. I guess that’s how they did things in 1960.

Isn’t doxxing sending people/police to someone’s home to cause them harm? In this case, it seems to be more “Look at how cool this guy is! He’s a local and in a movie!”

Of course, they had no idea what the movie was.

No, it’s just releasing personal information that really should remain private to the public. Like someone’s address. Although I guess back then you could just look them up in the phone book.

Yeah, that’s the thing. Back then, this information was easily accessed through the phone book. I’ve seen some earlier phone books that actually lists everyone’s occupation as well as their address.

My mum’s highschool yearbook had the addresses and phone numbers of everyone in the school. She and her friends used to use it to call the boys they thought were cute but then hang up as soon as they answered.

It’s wild how this movie always feels like a major slog, even though it has two entire (and entirely fabulous) shorts to help ease the pain. Also, I think there’s a sketch where someone’s reading DC’s Amethyst (from before Giffen fu-- er, “improved” it). So I award this one somewhat-above-average status. But almost reluctantly. lol. Because Sweet Fanny Adams, Coleman! Get some therapy!! :upside_down_face:

Yeah this one is always a tough one for me. It’s just so dreadfully dull. The shorts are great. The movie is a major Deep Hurting Sandstorm that it takes some fortitude for me to sit through. 4 out of 10.

The narration is like spoiled icing on top.

This is kind of hilarious.

The San Fernando Valley was (is!) home to thousands of actors, and literally thousands of movies were (are!) filmed here, even before we became the porn capital of the world.

Warner Bros. studios is in The Valley as covered by The Valley Times TODAY.

Thesis: Coleman Francis issued this to Jerry Pam as PR, and Mr. Jerry Pam, Editor printed it verbatim.
