Sun., 11/24 Mark Feldman
« on: November 24, 2013, 10:20:06 AM »
THEME:   puns on two words of a book title
   
GOOD ONES:     
London novel about gentlemen coming to blows?   BRAWL OF THE MILD [my favorite theme entry, but truly they're all fun]   
Skye cap   TAM [oldie but goodie]   
Hot stuff    TABASCO   
   
BTW:   
Crooks, in slang   GANEFS [if you're Yiddish --- oddly there was another Yiddish term yesterday]   
   
Unsettled feelings, in Fankfurt   ANGSTE [give me a break or at least a frankfurter]   
   
Ming the Merciless was one of the great villains in early talkies.   Flash Gordon was a serial for kids before TV --- laugh a minute today.   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

I remember watching Flash Gordon on TV. It was on from 1954 to 1955. As I recall it was a pretty hokey a low budget production.

Amazing that you know the years it was on TV.  In 1954 we got our first set, so I must've watched it then.  I think I liked the Liszt [?] score behind it as much as I did Ming (Robert Middleton?).  I believe it was on PBS about twenty-five years ago, and I caught a few episodes.  I'd love to see it again.

I was 12 in 1954. We got our first TV a few years before that, it was a Capehart. I watched mostly westerns, with the exceptions of Space Patrol, Time for Beany and Laurel and Hardy. I had to look up the years that Flash Gordon was on the air.
