  1. I was 11 when this came out, saw it on the big screen six times in all its Technicolor glory. My parents were on a tour of Holiday Inns in Canada (with their band), so I spent that summer re-living the entire flick in an endless succession of Holiday Inn pools. Truly surreal. Thanks for the memories, hon, always a treat to revisit this goodie.

  2. Thanks for the bit of info concerning Marvin and Hayden, I could see Marvin pulling it off but I think Sterling would have just been too grouchy. Great podcast as usual!
