I did a bit of binge comics work tonight, largely to dissipate stress connected to my dad's rehab stay and related stuff. Unfortunately, it didn't start until around 9:00 p.m., which means that it's now midnight and I'm just heading to bed. On the other hand, I'm now about 4/5 of the way to completing the strip conversion for Childproof the Unicorns.

In order to further shut off my brain while I worked, I watched The Great Race, which comes off more than anything like a prequel to Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang. You've never seen scenery chewed until you've seen Jack Lemmon prancing around as "Crown Prince Frederick Hoepnick" when the movie suddenly and inexplicably turns into Prisoner of Zenda halfway through.

I particularly dig the tandem-bicycle zeppelin-built-for-two. :)

Anyway! It's after midnight, and I need some sleep. G'nite, world, and have an awesome tomorrow. :)

As best shown here ...



One of the best parts of this scene is Tony Curtis getting through the first four minutes.

One of my all time favourite movies.

PUSH THE BUTTON, MAX.




Tell me, does Professor Fate remind you of a certain fox we both know?

One of my favorite-ever movies. [Right up there with 'Some Like It Hot'.]

Great lines - fun music - great cameos. 'Now can I get me some fighting room' ^_^

I believe that Dick Dastardly was designed after Jack Lemmon from this movie.
