Still shambling the streets of the city Nelson Algren defined, I am the Monster in a madhouse refined. Burma Shave.
53? is that the price of the girl in the ad?
Woo! Hot babe in the "Chicago Calling" lobby card!Now I want to know why he needs that $53!!!
$53??? *ROFL* Gads, how I LOVE it when things go "dated!"
And why is Julie London in a spanish flick? Or is that just a spanish poster for an english movie? :-)
Well, the top picture's gotta be from DOCTOR SOLAR: MAN OF THE ATOM. Gold Key super hero. I loved Doctor Solar perhaps for no other reason than I was there at the origin -- meaning, I bought DS number 1, volume 1, right off the stands -- a super hero origin not in past-tense. Of course, I didn't know he was a super-hero at the time -- he still hadn't picked out that distinct purple tights outfit yet. I wonder what it means that it seems doctors always lured me to comic books. DOCTOR STRANGE lured me to Marvel. DOCTOR SOLAR lured me to Gold Key. Go figure. Though featuring dinosaurs was a bigger lure: that's how I got into TUROK: SON OF STONE, KONA: MONARCH OF MONSTER ISLE and even TARZAN (pre Russ Manning Gold Key at first -- don't get me started on MAGNUS: ROBOT FIGHTER). I bought a lotta Gold Keys and Dells. Dinosaurs and doctors. Who'd have thought? -- Rich
