Looks like you knew how to spell'er but your fingers stuttered. Good one though.

Susan Sackett, in her book Box Office Hits, had a little story about the premiere of Pinocchio: 'Disney studio hired 11 midgets dressed in Pinocchio costumes and placed them atop the theater marquee, where they were instructed to frolic about. Around lunchtime, some kind soul sent up some refreshments, including a couple of quarts of liquor. By mid-afternoon the merry Pinocchios were frolicking stark naked, belching loudly and shooting craps on the marquee. Polices were summoned and carted off the jolly lads in pillowcases.'

A true story or was old Walt waxing the publicity machine again.

Dear soph,

Why does your last post call to mind the scene in the film 'Tommy' where Ann-Margaret rolls around in those pork and beans??? Let's see, I know that alison has red hair . . . Mmmmmm . . . it could work, if we asked the rabbits nicely to help out with the 'production' . . .

Sorry Alison but few people are agoing to touch-a-touch-a-touch you if you keep hanging out in poopy fields. You may want to get dirty but I think it means something else in the song.

The fella hanging is supposed to be in the forest scene just before they fall asleep in the poopy field... never managed to see him myself.....

I love the idea of this Sound of Music (I'll be there when it gets to Oz)...... at least a Nun costume it would be less drafty than prancing around Belfast in the middle of winter in slinky undies and a white lab coat for Rocky Horror... hahaha..... mind you in the heat over here at the minute.. I think Rocky Horror would win...... *grin*

Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me..........

Yeah, I know Spaw. But it's just not the same as being there and hearing Oswald play The Great Speckled Bird or the Magee Brothers do Buckdancers Choice.

There he sat in he-man splendor
Loading up on testosterone.
While she, away, with sisters dear
Learned to raise a power cone.

Advanced in masculinity
He got an A in war & glory
She eschewed her mother's tatting
And took to driving Daddy's lorry!

Then, she learned twas a'right to be
A lady and a womon
He to let the tears flow freely
And let the rigid stance be gone.

Now, they join in muddled melding
Each one sure the other's trying
Hard to be the best PC
Or in the effort at once lay dying!

Naw, ya got it all wrong! The stork was there as a symbol/representative of the Good Witches/WiseWimmin Midwives' Guild!

Way back when they were making the movie, our ancestral sisters took up protest signs and picketed for a fairhanded approach to the subject of WiseWimmin, thereby mandating the balanced appearance of Glenda, the Good Witch, to that of the nasty, stereotypical hag of the West!

Sheesh! This was covered in Elementary Feminism!

Yeah, I've heard the story about the swinging munchkin - and also that it isn't actually true. Which is either disappointing or pleasing according to taste - I'de settle for pleasing.

Can't say I could stand one of these interactive fun fun fun things at the movies. But I think it demonstrates that we are moving into a time when the concept of the passive mass audience is dying out, and that's good for the folk approach to music.

Perhaps the challenge should be to check the veracity of the story. Surely someone has seen the stagehand if he's in the tree. What a way to leave an echo!

During production of the movie, one of the stage hands hung himself from one of the trees in the Witch's Cottage scene. They say if you watch the scene carefully, you can see him swinging. I haven't gone back to see myself, but that's what they say.
