Legendary Film Featuring Many Unusual Cameos
This is one of the all-time legendary films. Forget the plot (what there is of one), the curiosity is seeing many unusual bit parts and cameos of randomly famous people and movie legends, often making their final film appearance. Buckle your seat belt, here's a list (and I am probably missing some folks): Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, George Jessel, Busby Berkeley, Cass Daley, Andy Devine, Huntz Hall and Leo Gorcey (showing the ravages of alcoholism), John Hart (the other Lone Ranger) and Jay Silverheels, Ruby Keeler, Patsy Kelly, Xavier Cugat, Patty Andrews (of The Andrews Sisters), Joan Blondell, Butterfly McQueen, Joe Louis, Pat O'Brien, Dorothy Lamour, Guy Lombardo, James Brown, Fritz Feld, Ed Sullivan, Dick Clark, Colonel Sanders, Johnny Weismuller and Maureen O'Sullivan. Whew! Worth the price of admission (but don't pay too much) is a cute scene with Johnny and Maureen:Maureen: "Do it just once"......Johnny: "Oh, I don't know Maureen".....Maureen: "Johnny, please!".......Johnny: "OK. Me Tarzan"......Maureen: "Me Jane". Then they kiss.
Thought this flick was a myth
- Zeke Motojokowski
When I was serving in the Marine Corps a buddy came back from leave telling us about having seen this movie. No one had ever heard of it and we searched the news papers for when it would be playing in Honolulu, no luck. No one I have asked has ever heard of it either. Last year I found it listed as movie that Leo Gorcey an Huntz Hall appeared in.So I confirmed it was for real and not a sea story my buddy made up. Last Friday I find it on TCM schedule. I can't believe it. It was different a spoof of the Monkee's tv show and spy movies. Leo and Huntz don't show up until the end as part of the Cavalcade of Cameos but they at least have speaking parts. Unless you grew up in 50's and 60's you won't know most of Stars who did cameos at the end or the jokes some of them tell. It was worth the wait for me to see the myth come to life.
What a strange movie. It celebrated the style of 1970. All the cool colors clothes hairstyles. Extremely entertaining movie and as shallow as it gets. There is a plot or drive to the movie but it is out shined by all the groovy goings on. Richard Pryer, Dick Clark, Ed Sullivan make appearances. The movie is: "Crazy man, crazy!" Watch and enjoy.
