Placeholder for either Kudos or a ritual disembowelment of the upcoming film




We will also have awards for spotting minorities or other "protected" classes that make jarring and inaccurate appearances.

I am betting that Halsey will be played by Jussie Smollet

Remember the Midway movie in the 1970s that had Sensurround?

That was the auditory equivalent of Cinerama. 8)

Colorizing old movies?

How about colorizing that episode of Make Room For Daddy where Danny gets stopped by some cracker sheriff while driving down Florida? The sheriff was Andy Griffith and the episode was so popular that Andy Griffith got his own show that ran for a helluva lot longer than Make Room For Daddy.

Spin it out to feature length.

Make it a period piece set when the original episode was new. Colorize the brash wisecracking Danny Thomas character. Have him falsely accused of raping Aunt Bea instead of really guilty of speeding through Mayberry.

Feature Barny Fife administering beatdowns with his nightstick as the running gag.

Happy ending -- The FBI shows up just in time to prevent a lynching.

Certainly not.

That show has long been a desire of mine.
