Wassup, fellas? It’s Morbid from Dreamin’ Demon.
I have a trauma for ya’ that I need help identified. Actually, I have two. But first is a movie I am trying to track down. I am almost 100 percent sure it is a FRANKENSTEIN movie. It was in black-and-white and I caught it back in the mid ’70s on a Saturday Creature Feature. The only scene I remember, and a scene I want to see again, detailed a balding, older gentleman falling from a balcony in the foyer of a large house. The scene (as I recalled it) showed him fall and actually hitting the ground with his head. My memory may have embellished this scene greatly, but that’s what I have stuck in ma’ brain. I HAVE to see this scene again to see why it has stuck with me all these years.
Lastly, my mom used to be hooked on these hobo faces made of plastic. They hung on the wall. If you pulled their bow tie or some other type of neck accessory, they would “spit” water at you from their mouths and then laugh. They were pretty popular in the late ’70s early ’80s and there were many varieties of them. I even remember them being sold widely at Myrtle Beach, SC. But I’ll be damned if I can find anyone who has them for sale, or any history behind them to start looking. Trying a search for “spitting hobo” brings up interesting results, but not exactly what I’m looking for.
I’ll skip the handjob of telling how much I enjoy your site and just thank you for any help you can provide in these very important matters.
UNK SEZ: Thanks Morbid! Morbid lords over the non-stop fascinating conveyor belt of human depravity known as DREAMIN’ DEMON; visit if you dare HERE. By the by, both myself and Aunt John remember those rascally plastic squirting hobo wall hangings that Morbid speaks of but for the life of us, we could not find a picture of one anywhere on the internet (How is that possible?) If any of you can find an image of one, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add it to the comments section. It takes a village, people (and not the kind that wears chaps!)
UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMAS SOLVED! Hugs and kisses (and other acts promised in the comments!) go out to Senski for the being the first to get both CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN and Laffun Heads!
