    I watched Hollywood Boulevard the other day in honor of Dick Miller. It's not a film you hear mentioned a lot, but it is an early Joe Dante film, which makes use of lots of Roger Corman stock footage. Miller has a really great role as a talent agent, and gets lots of screen time. Not for the whole family, but it's sort of a rare blu ray you can get here at Hamilton Books:

    Fun, extra-rambling episode.

    Fun fact: Gary Sandy is from my hometown of Cynthiana, Ky. He still has family here and visits occasionally. About 15 years ago, I saw him shopping the produce at the local Food Lion grocery. I recognized him, but just left him alone, because 1, he was just shopping for bananas, and 2, I had no idea what to say to him anyway.

    About 5 years ago the local theater put on a radio play version of A Christmas Carol, and Sandy starred as Ebeneezer Scrooge. It was a big deal for our town, and was a very good show! Unfortunately, no commemorative glasses were produced.

    Also, I met Loren Lester a few months ago at a con in Louisville, and he was a super cool guy. I haven't seen Rock n' Roll High School in decades, so I didn't recall he was in it!

    ^ Great pic!

    I can't believe Brian hasn't seen Gremlins!!!

    I can't believe I haven't seen Rock N Roll High School!!!

    Our family has no commemorative dinner theatre glasses. BUT, we do have what my mother calls the "Riddler Punch Bowl", which is a crystal punch bowl my parents won at some dinner theater they went to when Frank Gorshin came to town sometime after Batman but before me.
