various and assorted miscellany
Man in the Attic is a 1953 mystery starring Jack Palance. Frances Bavier, better known as Andy Griffiths' Aunt Bea, is also in this movie as Palance's suspicious landlady. Is he Jack the Ripper?
I learned what Aunt Bee's real name was. She has a unmistakable look to her, even in this photo. Happy Wednesday. WE're frosty this AM, but I guess it is November. Have a great day Nita.
It was good to see her in a film instead of just that tv series. We're chilly, but we still haven't had to put the heat on. It's drizzling rain today or I'd open up the house to get some air moving through here. I do enjoy fresh air :)
A'int Bee! Now, that's a serious face that looks like she could be saying "Opie, what have you been up to!" I like Jack the Ripper stories -- I need to check this out.
She's great as the landlady. I hope you enjoy it.
...I always liked Aunt Bea!
That show was too silly or too sweet by turns for me, though I watched it coz the family did. She was a good gal, wasn't she. I think we'd benefit from more multi-generational households.
Love Jack Palance. We've nicknamed him the Ghoul!
I love that voice. And he has a look about him, doesn't he!
I really like this movie. Jack Palance is one of my all time faves and who doesn't like Aunt Bea in any roll.
Palance had a way about him, didn't he. Great voice.
I must live under a rock, because I have never heard of Jack Palance, but I have heard of Aunt Bea because that show is on one of the cable channels and I've seen it advertised. Nothing more than that, though.
Palance was in Shane, for one, and had a very long career both on film and tv. He won major awards. He died in 2006 at 87 years of age. His voice was distinctive. He did a great guest spot on the Jerry Lewis muscular dystrophy telethon in all black looking straight into the camera and saying in his best bad-guy voice: "I am Muscular Dystrophy". Chilling. from Wikipedia: "Hard-faced and menacing, he stated "I am muscular dystrophy" and described the terrible things the disease would do to a victim's body. At the end he laid his hand atop the head of a small boy, who looked up at him innocently. Then after Palance walked away, the boy collapsed to the floor. Very, very powerful piece."
"I was talking to the dog." LOL.
