I just assume that you haven't seen it, because for any reason it disappeared into curiosity within the last 25 years. And with "for any reason" I mean "because it's probably one of the most fucked up not-r-rated cartoons I've ever seen".

And strangely enough, I remember enjoying the hell out of it. But for the life of me, I can't recall a damn thing about it! Except it was one of the those strange slapstick spoof films.<p> I got to say, the 70's and 80's were great times for comedy. Films got to "artsy" on some level<p> It seems rather strange, doesn't it? A person works all there life and gets into the movies...they direct a few fims and then is forgotten.

He's been working steadily...mostly in TV and UK stuff.... His current movie is Shakespeare The Winters Tale...<p> So I guess he's got a steady job as a TV guy...

Even Irish people have trouble with their accents. Unless you're gunning for an Oscar or something, I wouldn't even try.

In candid moments, directors will tell you why they like television; it is easier, quicker, and the money is good and steady. Long running shows will often placate and actor by letting him direct and episode because it really can't do a whole lot of damage for the ego boost of adding director to his resume.

Freddie Francis must have bought a new zoom lens for that one and boy does he use it.

He directed Melody and for that he gets a lifetime pass from me, if you watch Melody, you can see where the inspiration for Winnie Cooper came from.

which was also my first DePalma film I saw. Made me a fan of both.

He needs to get more recognition outside of geek circles. The man is not only a comedy genius but an all around acting genius.

When're you going to get on Genevieve Bujold?

...quite the, uh, libertine in those magical, un-botoxed early 70's, her profligate lifestyle shocking her virginal pal, this young director named speilberg who showed some promise back then...<p> loving these in-depth looks at forgotten films, capt. quint. looking forward to _barry lyndon_...i'll fire up the schubert for it, plus whatever else i have handy...

There's a story in there that during Jaws they hooked him up with a hooker and ... trying to remember - he couldn't get it up for her? Kidder was portrayed as a freaky-deaky hippie girl who liked to sunbathe nude and was disgusted that Senor Spielbergo showed up with a "bimbo" date - was it Victoria Principal? Anyway - great book - really wallows in the dirt.

saw this at the Alpine Twin when it came out. We thought it was odd and quirky but we enjoyed it. I think I saw it again decades later on HBO once. Way more character than plot but I won't try to defend it to someone who just saw it when I haven't seen it in decades.<p.I love that poster of Quackser hauling Kidder off in his horseshit cart. So much for women's lib, huh?

His character's name was "Albert Riddle". He mentioned his brother once; "Jimmy Riddle". Best. Character. Name. Ever. Not the best Double Entendre ever though. that goes to the Thin Blue Line: "Your cock up. My arse". Genius.

In short: I practically worship Kubrick and it's his only film I outright don't like. Albeit, I haven't seen Fear and Desire, which rarely screens. Bizarrely, Lyndon is directionless and also a bore but with exquisite cinematography. I'll be curious to see what you think.

But her best work was in The Donner Cut of Superman II. My blood still boils when I think what could have been with a properly shot and cut Superman II under Donner and not that goofy, yet likeable knock off by Lester.
