Couple (okay, three) quick things:
1. The Fabulous Stacia, of She Blogged By Night, has started another weekly movie serial recappin', and after the brutally funny Raiders of Ghost City and Phantom Creeps I wanted to give everyone a heads-up so you could get in on the ground floor, and not feel the way I did when someone told me -- midway through the third season -- that I should abruptly start watching Lost. Particularly because this one, The Monster and the Ape, has it all -- a robot, a gorilla, George Macready (only one year away from his breakthrough role opposite Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford in Gilda, and a mere 20 years away from his thoroughly brokenthrough role opposite George Nader and Richard Kiel in Human Duplicators), and an ingenue named Babs Arnold played by Carole Mathews, only 11 years before her starring turn as a catfightin' undercover cop opposite the ever-noirish Marie Windsor, the ever-delightful Beverly Garland, and the ever-Mannix Mike "Touch" Connors in Swamp Diamonds.
2. I'm thinking of writing a piece for the upcoming Chaney Blogathon: Two Men, Thousands of Faces, and wanted to ask your advice. Since I don't believe that Lon Chaney ever made a bad movie, (mostly because I've heard that just disbelieving things, without considering, or even hearing any evidence either way is the new time-saving alternative to the Scientific Method), I was wondering...what do you think is the absolute worst movie Lon Chaney, Jr. ever made?
3. Finally, what do you think this means?
Personally, I think it's a rare candid photo from the early days of the Borg, when their assimilation equipment was pretty bare bones, and consisted mostly of a wearable ViewMaster augmented with twin shuttlecock tails, and topped with a scale model of the Flying Sub from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
But I could be wrong.
