The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day reminds me of the babe. What babe? The babe with the power!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! I couldn’t ignore the easy jump from yesterday’s Pan’s Labyrinth to today’s Labyrinth, so forgive my nostalgia and still confused puberty emotions (pubertemotions?) surrounding Jim Henson’s classic tale of Fantasy starring an impossibly gorgeous Jennifer Connelly and co-starring David Bowie’s impossibly ginormous package. The picture is small, but good. Jim Henson and Hoggle, one of the best animatronic faces ever. I always bought Hoggle as a character… the lip movements were surprisingly realistic, much like Henson’s work on Audrey II in THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. Very fluid and natural. If you can nail the eyes and the lips the effect will work. This marks the second time Henson has appeared in this column and it won’t be the last. Thinking back on what he did with this movie, the Muppet Movies and his influence in what Frank Oz did with The Dark Crystal really makes me mourn the movies we could have gotten if he hadn’t left us so early. Enough sad face! Crank up the Bowie on your iTunes and check out the pic:

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic has 24 hours to comply! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    Henson Was A Genius...BUT

    by THE TRUE PINBACK

    Jim Henson had little or nothing to do with the Audrey II puppet in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. THat was done by a man named Lyle Conway and his crew. I do believe that Conway worked with Henson at one time or another, but the man-eating plant was his work, not Henson's. Please try to get your facts straight...you're supposed to know about movies.

    LABYRINTH and LEGEND

    by blackwood

    My parents taped both off of the movie network for me and my sister, and they were on the same VHS tape. Same with DARK CRYSTAL and NEVERENDING STORY. Best tapes ever.<p>And I am fairly certain David Bowie's considerable package is what gayed me as a young lad. Thank you, Bowie junk.

    fuck a Dark Crystal sequel

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    give me a Labyrinth sequel where Jennifer Connely has to return to the Goblin kingdom to rescue her infant son/daughter from Bowie's codpiece - she could even get her hubby Paul Bettany to show up somehow (it's not like he's doing anything anyway). Seriously, though, how cool would it be to see a return trip there, run into Sir Didymous again, talk to the door knockers, and watch boulders save the day. Doubt Connely would do it, though.

  • Aug. 15, 2010, 10:17 a.m. CST

    actually

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    Bettany could play Bowie's codpiece - he already kind of looks the part

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    but didn't Henson die of a form of pneumonia that could have easily been cured if he wasn't a member of the Christian Science faith and adhered to their archaic "no doctors, the lord will fix you if he feels like it" philosophy? Fucking shame. his creations (along with looney tunes) shaped my childhood.

    Used to watch my VHS copy at least once a week

    by Toe Jam

    I've always loved just about everything about this movie. I still love the soundtrack. I watched it streaming in HD via Netflix a few months back, and one thing stuck out (no pun intended). In my youth, I'd never noticed just how prominent Bowie's unit is throughout the movie. Watching it now, a couple decades later, though, I was absolutely transfixed by the moose knuckle. I can't believe my parents never commented on just how revealing it was, either, considering that they'd occasionally watch it with me. Guess it just goes to show you how adulthood and sexual "maturity" makes you look at things in a whole different light.

    by lochkray

    I don't think Henson was Christian, and that certainly didn't lead to him avoiding medical care. He was impossibly polite, so they say, and he didn't want to bother anybody with his sikeness. When he did go to the hospital, the taxi dropped him off at the wrong door, and he didnt want to bother the man to drive him around to the front, so he walked. An hour after checking in, he couldn't breathe on his own. Sad story, great talent, kind mad. Hate to see his legacy and tragic death smeared by internet bullshit.

    He was raised in the religion, was even a Sunday School teacher in his early 20s, but he left the church. He even went to a doctor when he was first sick, but he thought it was pneumonia and the tests came back negative. And in fact it WASN'T pneumonia. It appeared like strep from pneumonia, but it was a different variety of strep that the prior doctor didn't catch because he was only testing for pneumonia. So... you know... shut up already.

I followed my attraction for Connelly into later films like Dark City, Dark Water and Inventing the Abbotts. I hate our over-zealous culture sometimes, where people see pedophilia in places there clearly is not.

    ...Mia Sara actually slid into doing some pretty bad low budget sex thrillers, got a kind of bad breast enhancement and sort of slowly vanished. The last I heard of her she was originally cast in the DC based television show Birds of Prey (as Harlequin? maybe) but was ultimately replaced by Sherilyn Fenn. I don't think the series lasted a full season anyway. Ashley Scott as the Huntress and Dina Meyer?

    im, im in the underground, uunderground..... I saw micheal Moschen on the Paul Magic show and I may have seen him on the performance mile in san francisco near giardelli square as a kid. while on holiday in the us. but either way moschen was a magical performer and the work he did on labyrinth was magical.

    when the lights went up..

    by emeraldboy

    after the execs had seen labyrinth, they left the room and didnt say a thing and after that henson never directed another film. again. when the lights went up after the dark crystal an exec turned to henson and said. "this wasnt the muppets".henson was reportedly shell shocked because he wanted to distance himself from his most famous creations.

    kisskiss: that makes way more sense!

    by mrgray

    For years I have always thought that the line was "power of voodoo" but "hoodoo" makes a lot more sense given the response line.

    those plants with the eyes..

    by emeraldboy

    are creepy. labyrinth was incredible. what a wonderful imagination jim henson had. what I find beyond staggering was that all those creatures and characters from seasame street, the muppets, fraggle rock, the dark crystal and labyrinth and the creature shop came from the mind and imagination of one man. unbelivable. fox news sent two news reporters down the henson hq in new york on the morning his death was announced. you can see them door stepping his shellshocked staff.

    Hate to go all lyric police here...

    by AndoSoundsLikeAMong

    But it is "power of Voodoo." Quite aside from every lyric site under the sun listing is as so, my son often watches Labayrinth two or three times a day. Love the film.
