Containing Multitudes Since 2004
666 - deliberate?
Well, I couldn't let just anything sit in that spot...
Hmmm...kinda looks like ol' Scratch is pitching Moxie!
A devilish concoction, as we know well!
Damn! I was gonna post an image from The Bells of St. Mary's (the old ironist in the heart of me) for this number entry.Still, it's a great still. Also looks like Scratch is pitching for the Armed Forces (after all, Huston played Uncle Samuel a year later in John Ford and Greg Toland's insane December 7, 1941 . . . even the War Department thought it was a bit heavy-handed, even for a Propaganda film).
We could do a little switcheroo...put in Bing and Ingrid, and make ol' Scratch 668, the Neighbour of the Beast.
Nahhhh. I'll leave it be. Yours is better (Walter Huston trumps Bing Crosby . . . even in a Leo McCarey picture . . . anyday).
Yeah, it's not like Kurt Weill ever wrote anything for Der Bingle!
Wish you could rig up a few bars of that stunning Bernard Herrmann score to accompany this picture!
You can hear some of it in the trailer.
