11.07.07Weird Wednesday First Weird Wednesday at the Ritz! Lars had a great intro for the film explaining the bizarre circumstances surrounding the film and how the print came to be shown. Apparently this is in all likliehood the only print of this film in existence since Adamson self-distributed and it was only released unto the realm of private collectors due to the director's unfortunate death by murder and entombment in his house. Strange!

Not nearly as strange as the movie though. Talking monkeys, psychic magicians with chest hair, drunk lion tamers with even more chest hair, teenage girls becoming young women, and an awesomely trashy nurse all speckle the Carny sets and infest our minds with calliope-driven insanity. There's also a guy with a radio and a guy who can only bend steel when he's Gus (thanks, Lars). I also particularly loved the cop on the radio because of the way he said "ten fo'" and the other cop for sitting on his car even as it was towed away.

And all hail the triumphant return of Wednesday Night Special!!!! Man that thing is beat up. It was fantastic to see it play again in the new space. I never really realized how much I missed it at South lamar until I saw it again tonight. yay!


Deleriously weird movie. Really glad I saw it.
