I love you Stephanie very much. You are my world and I cherish all the wonderful years we have spent together. I am a movie buff. My favorite movies are from the 70's & 80's but my love of movies & movie knowledge goes back to the 40's and even earlier. Feel free to post on my page or send me quizzes and movie recommendations.
This is probably my second favorite Scott film. This film was B grade all the way but in my opinion what High Noon should have been. The resurrection of Marshal Ware was almost mystical and otherworldly. Landsbury in her hot phase before her frumpy matronly phase. Great little western all-together.
Roddy McDowall is brilliant as Alan "Mollymauk" Musgrave in this dark comical spoof of the ridiculous Beach movies of the 1960's. McDowall plays brilliant high school senior Alan who also happens to be a few cards shy of a full deck. He becomes obsessed in a seemingly non-sexual platonic way with campus cutie Barbara Ann Greene played wonderfully by Tuesday Weld who wants nothing more than to be popular at her school and become a famous movie actress. Alan becomes sort of a genie to her making sure every wish and desire is granted for little more than companionship in return. Unfortunately for Barbara Ann fame has a price and anyone who may get in the way of that fame like her alcoholic cocktail waitress mother or her womanizing playboy boyfriend/husband then Alan has no problem ridding that path to fame of any obstacle, no matter the cost.
A great cast plus a horrible script unfortunately equals a bad film. Obviously a spoof on Wiseguy movies this Shim driven vehicle fails to deliver. Shim is a funny physical comic reminiscent of the Three Stooges but this was not the film to do that routine. Keitel was not believable as Shim's father not because he is Caucasian but due to the fact he is not much older than Shim. A bad wig and gangster suit couldn't keep Jason Mewes inner Jay from constantly appearing minus Silent Bob as the rival family lieutenant. Skip this one.
