annual Scoopy Awards are rushing to a
furious year's end. Unfortunately, there
isn't a lot of tension building, since
only one movie is eligible for best
picture so far, "Poodle
Springs". It is the only movie which
contains both nudity and Joe Don Baker,
our two screening criteria. (The movie
would be eliminated if Joe Don himself
were to be nude). Of course, this is an
excellent year in that we do have a
nominee. I can't remember another
eligible film since 1983's
"Joysticks" (winner of our
Lifetime Achievement Award as the
all-time best movie with both nudity and
Joe Don Baker. Our Citizen Kane.)
This scene is
also familiar to most of you ... Barbara
Crampton on the operating table with the
disembodied head in "The
Re-Animator". But when DonBun takes
on a movie, he adds a new dimension to
Crampton in "The Re-Animator".
Hmm... another unrelated thought about
Joe Don Baker. He represents the central
point in the theoretical heirarchy of
roles. In essence, he is the Grade B Fred
Thompson. Here's how it works. Name any
category: U.S. senators. If you need
somebody to play a noble U.S. senator:
Grade A, Fred Thompson. A sleazy U.S.
senator: Grade B, Joe Don Baker. An inept
U.S. Senator: Grade C, Earl Holliman. Now
let's pick another: "characters with
monumental egos". Grade C: cast a
man who thinks he can deny God: Gary
Oldman. Grade B: cast a man who thinks he
can defeat God: William Shatner. Grade A:
cast a man who thinks he is God: Richard
Harris. Thus, William Shatner is the
grade B Richard Harris, which also means
he can play the Richard Harris roles in
lower-grade productions that Harris would
not dignify. I think it is even possible
to cross over cultural lines. For
example, Jeff Daniels is the Grade B
Gerard Depardieu. Other examples: William
Baldwin is the Grade B Alec Baldwin. Adam
Sandler is the Grade B Pauly Shore. Ethan
Hawke is the Grade B Antichrist.

what a rambling and incoherent movie,

of a gentler, forgotten time. Sort of
