Holy Oneupmushroom! It's Paul Bartel
So I take advantage of this wonderful 50% Off Criterion DVD sale at Barnes and Noble, which actually makes Criterion movies .... still way overpriced, but that's another topic.
Anyway, among the DVDs I gobbled at the sale was a copy of Sam Fuller's White Dog. I have wanted to see this movie for some time, mainly for completist sake as I have seen a lot of Fuller's movies recently. (Oddly enough not Shock Corridor or Pickup on South Street, but I digress.)
Anyway, in a very brief scene in which Kristi McNichol, playing an actress, is getting ready for her screen test, suddenly the movie director turns around and I exclaim, "Holy 1upmushroom, it's Paul Bartel!"
And just like that, he was gone. But he does that to me on occasion, just shows up suddenly on screen and disappears.
Oh yeah, down here, I am considered the apotheosis of cool - Sewer Urchin
This is an appalling film. And for some of you, well worth your time - SSM
I like the way this board thinks
