Hootenanny Hootin' Johnny

Spoken of possibly in other places/times

I have tried to upload several scenes from Hootenanny Hoot! (including Judy Henske's - the real-life Annie Hall - unfortunate jiggling leg fat scene - write to me for more detail) but all the new copyright bots have gotten me each time at each video service so I have been unable to thus far.

While driving to work today (that's right - I WORK) I heard on the SD chip in my car stereo (ooh!) the album (Johnny Cash - 1958 - The Fabulous) which featured the song performed below, . Johnny: tangentially bringin' his darkness to this otherwise treacle-y gentrification of the radical folk music scene. So I looked it up and etc., etc.

Lotsa no pants dancin' in this movie.... I'm talkin' to YOU Arthur & Chimp!
And for Donna, c-list sitcom clown Joby fuckin' Baker and perennial game show celeb Ruta (rrrrrrr! Sexy!) Lee fer chrissakes! (lemme guess - you know them.....I knew it! Make with the ancedote already!)

Trailer, which doesn't come close to providing anywhere near the sense of chilling squirm-worthiness this film provides:

Anybody for a Drew Barrymore remake?

AND NOW as a super good extra treat- the film Five Minutes to Live aka Door To Door Maniac starring Johnny as deranged psychopath alongside Ronny Howard & Hugh Marlowe (my band useta do an instrumental called Hugh Marlowe) and Vic Tayback - in it's entirety! Yahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa..........................

You just KNOW that Ruta Lee gave a mean handjob -- she had those strong arms from all those years rolling the big dice on TV's HIGH ROLLERS.

You talkin' to me?
You should use less words next time. My brain hurts. I only caught on after spotting "no pants".
As always, I rubber gloved it!
