So, we have a few points that call for further examination from Episode 13. Let's start with my claim that Jessica Lange in King Kong (1974) is possibly the most beautiful actress in any single movie. Not an easy claim to make, possibly controversial, but I'm sticking to my guns. Feel free to let us know who you'd argue deserves the top spot. But, again, why is King Kong such a perv in this movie? Why does a giant gorilla want to take a woman's top off? If squirrels wore clothes, would you walk around constantly wondering, "I wonder what that squirrel looks like naked?"
A couple of corrections to make on our vintage cereal discussion. It turns out that Smurf-Berry Crunch is not in production. You can buy a refrigerator magnet that looks like the box for about 3 bucks, but no cereal. Massive bummer. And Todd was right, those are clearly oranges on this 1974 box of Fruit Brute. (Shout out to '74 for making an appearance twice in one post.) I'm wondering if Allen had the special Nerds cereal bowl with the trap door. That makes all kinds of sense.
Quisp does in fact cost 60 bones on Walmart.com, but you get a 12 pack for that price. So, Todd wouldn't have to break the bank to get his hands on Quisp, but he would need to pound 12 boxes of the stuff in about 6-8 months to get his money's worth. I feel a challenge coming!
We all have friends that may be dating someone who isn't in their league. Well, Todd was adamant when he said poor Pinky Tuscadero wasn't good enough for the Fonz. I'll let you all decide.
This is the Futurama fan film we discussed on the show. Take a look and imagine the time, money, and effort that was sunk into this. What I love about this is that the creators are fully aware of the insanity involved, as you'll see if you read the first screen. And when I checked out their website, it's clear that Dan Lanigan and his crew have a great sense of humor. So, would you do it? Was it worth it? Considering it has well over a million views now, I'm going to guess their efforts might be repaid. If nothing else, I think it proves the people involved have a ton of talent.
The Warren Beatty Story
If you're interested in Rob Lowe's book, here it is. And I'll leave you with this. Many of you are wondering which actress Rob Lowe's girlfriend was in the story. I'm pretty sure I know. I'm not going to say it, but Lowe actually didn't have many serious girlfriends. So, if you follow the clues in the story...
