Title: A Bit of A Chat Podcast - Tom Scharpling this weeks guest
Post by: CaptKarl on August 23, 2010, 11:33:13 AM
Interview with Tom this week on Ken Plume's A Bit of A Chat. This follows last week's discussion with Paul F. Funny stuff on both accounts.

Nice phone there, Tom.  What are you, calling from under a monster truck?

It sounded like he was on a brisk jaunt in certain portions of the interview. I am assuming the sound quality was iPhone related.

Are there any *good* movies available as made-to-order DVDs via the Warner Archives mentioned in the interview?

Brewster McCloud, which was Altman's first feature film is really good. Rene Auberjenois(sp?) turns into a freaking bird, Bud Cort (Harold from Harold and Maude), and I thik it might be Shelly Duvall's first film appearance. Stacy Keech plays a really quality dick that he eventually turned to a hack parody.

Actually, Altman had made a few features before Brewster McCloud, the most famous being MASH.

I see maybe a dozen that I'd be curious enough to watch on TV, but none I can swear are worth your $19.99.  Be aware, however, of:

Verboten! (Sam Fuller!)
The Man I Love (Ida Lupino! directed by Raoul Walsh)
Untamed Youth (Mamie Van Doren!)

*and*

Dogville Shorts

In the Early Sound Era, talent from all over – veteran vaudevillians, musical icons, radio personalities, Broadway luminaries – performed in specialty shorts augmenting main features that packed moviehouses. One particular pack stood out: the amazingly trained tail-waggers of the 9 “All-Barkie” Dogville Comedies. Directed by Zion Myers and Jules White, these unusual attractions showcased creatively costumed “talking” dogs of various breeds and spoofed the noble and naughty behaviors of people. They pulled off grrrreat rrrriffs of the era’s movies, from unquiet Western Front war heroics and Great Woof Way musical extravaganzas to Great Whelp Hunter jungle expeditions and Prison Pups breakout thrills. A nationwide theatre owners poll in 1930 rated the Dogvilles as the best short subjects over more legendary comedy and musical series. See if you agree, as you walk these dogs and unleash a whole lotta laughter.

College Hounds

Who Killed Rover? (a/k/a The Dogville Murder Case)

The Dogway Melody

Sorry about that, I didn't know if Mash or Brewster McCloud was first, as they had a lot of the same cast and came out about the same time. Regardless, there were a couple of films before either of those.
