Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I finally caught up with this movie last weekend. So awesome. I love how (as in the scene pictured) Tashlin uses ideas that are more frequently associated with cartoons in live-action. Plus the payoff that this scene sets up is amazing- when he's in the bar, depressed over seeing Julie London wherever he goes, and then he turns around expecting to see her and Jayne Mansfield is sitting there instead.Wow, now I want to watch it again.
god,how i love that movie. thank you.
I love this scene. Isn't it the one where Ewell walks in, depressed over losing his girl, puts on a Julie London record and she appears, singing the bluesy heartbreak song to him in every room and haunting his attempts at reverie? One of the great scenes. The movie, overall, though, is a bit of a snoozer, I've always thought.
FYI, I just wrote an appreciation of this scene over at Screengrab as part of a weekly column on movie scenes I love.
Thanks for the heads-up, Paul! Post the link to it if you want.
