Is that Evel Knieval?
Yep, all except the last picture. That would be George Hamilton. This is from the mid-70s biopic which used actual jump footage in between the dramatic scenes. (Appropriately enough, I saw it at the drive-in when it came out.)
"Only he didn't say fudge."He said "caramel"? "taffy"? "jelly beans"?word verification: fslkd - what he actually said.
That was really funny. I remember that movie. Even as a kid I remember thinking it was terrible. But I still love it but I can't be trusted because my favorite movie of all time is Big Trouble in Little China.
Ow, now I'm having flashbacks to the motorcycle jump in "Happy Days"! At least they were Catholic.....Xena Catolica
!!! I just learned that E.E. "Doc" Smith was a doughnut engineer before becoming the ur-lord of pulp space-opera!!! I'm not quite sure of the significance, but it's just mind-blowing. Xena Catolica
That would explain Doc's circuitous turns of phrase!
Working in the Christmas Story reference is unquestionably brilliant.
"Ow, now I'm having flashbacks to the motorcycle jump in "Happy Days"!"I hope this doesn't mean I've officially jumped the shark.
No, no, I meant the original jump, that crashed the chicken stand. And not long after that the Fonz returned to the Church, 'though I was young & the memory is hazy. I remember it. 'though, because it was the first time I saw Catholicism on TV. Probably should become more hazy. But no, you haven't jumped the shark in my book.....Xena C.
