Did You Know?


Arthur Anderson, the voice of the parrot in "The Wild Women of Wongo" wasn't just an actor. He was also an author. His autobiography "An Actor's Odyssey: Orson Wells to Lucky the Leprechaun describes the singular journey of a young boy who fell in love with the theatre and, in turn, was embraced by it. All through the book Anderson makes each period of his life come alive and brings an insider's appreciation of the talented individuals he was associated with including Jackie Gleeson, Vincent Price and Woody Allen.

Well, if this movie was a puppy ...
24 December 2006 | by KennethEagleSpiritSee all my reviews

Ever see a puppy that was so ugly it was cute? That describes this dog of a movie. Gilligan's Island meets Ed Wood gone terribly wrong. Plot? It never thickens. Rather it starts out as thin as rice paper and remains just that transparent. Dialog? The dialog coach was sent out for coffee. Acting? It is to laugh. Sets? Well, none really. Special effects? Uh, there was that rubber alligator. Makeup? Think: Blue hair meant to look grey. But hey, it IS in colour. Maybe they should of thought about that before they called for makeup. Reality? This movie is a cinema dog rocket. But if you can get into Ed Wood meets Gilligan ... It IS kinda cute and good for a chuckle or two. But not much else.
