"Hold me, Touch me!" Estelle Winwood of all people. Zero and Gene's finest hour. I saw it in a theater with a bunch of my subversive friends at first release, and our jaws literally dropped and we laughed so hard it hurt. And was Lee Meredith a jaw-dropping site by herself! I still tell new visitors to the house, "White, White, White, is the color of our carpet!" Then Chris and I look at each other and grin.
Many years ago, B4 it was even commercially available on tape, my youngest son memorized the first line or so from "Springtime For Hitler" after I had it on the Beta, and imagine my wife's surprise when he broke out in song with it in the middle of the supermarket. Many Strange Looks. Very hard to explain that one.
