Avatar 1:07pm Mailman Tom:

Olive Borden was one of the most beautiful actresses of the silent screen. She starred in the incredible 1926 movie, The Monkey Talks. Only a poor print of the movie still exists, but it's definitely worth watching because of her. Unfortunately, she came to a sad end on Los Angeles' skid row. She was only 41.
Avatar 1:25pm Juke Joint Jonny:

imdb tells us that Olive Borden's last film, the voodoo potboiler Chloe, Love is Calling You, also features a band called the Shreveport Home Wreckers! Got to dig that!
Avatar 1:27pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Think it's these guys?? youtu.be...
Avatar 1:29pm Joe non Papa:

It's ages since I've read it but was she included in Kenneth Anger's "Hollywood Babylon"? Her story sounds like she would fit right in.
  1:32pm Lord Johnzon:

Damn hippies... they got me too
  1:34pm Lord Johnzon:

I coulda been an investment banker!!

That was the best possible transition out of that Box Of Grass, song. I guess we just have to thank GOD for that....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Blacktooth:

Or Dog. Maybe we thank Dog for that...
  1:37pm andrewb:

That Anne Castle number rocks
Avatar 1:37pm Reeshard:

And here my morning was fairly uncomplicated...hell, where's my box of grass? And my spike? Must be around here somewheres...
Avatar 1:37pm trippinwithdub:

Sounding great as always, Rex. This Olive Borden has a Janis Joplin look.
Avatar 1:37pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Whole dang Chloe, Love is Calling You, if you need it: archive.org...
  1:37pm scott:

I thank dog that it's Saturday, which is every day for him, of course.
Avatar 1:40pm Reeshard:

Wow...THERE's a cautionary tale...
  1:42pm Lord Johnzon:

Thank dog indeed!
  1:43pm DG:

Is this the original "The Walk"? There's a bootleg of the Beatles doing this (probably from the Let It Be/Get Back sessions).
Avatar 1:45pm Joe non Papa:

BTW Rex, that Detroit pizza joint near the Chelsea Hotel has finally opened. Eater(dot)com likes it.
  1:57pm Papito:

HAD came on and the ghost of Bettie Page appears before me doing a HOT grind !
  1:57pm Lord Johnzon:

I'm embarrassed to say that I've lived in Detroit for almost four years and I don't really know what distinguishes "Detroit" pizza... but I have Celiac disease so I have an excuse... is it like thin crust and rectangular or is that some other city...
  2:01pm Lord Johnzon:

Well I got it half right... the part about the auto parts trays is familiar
Avatar 2:08pm trippinwithdub:

Aba gu baga yay!

"Did he say that?" - pointing to the captioned screen translation.

Paradise on Saturday afternoon.
  2:31pm gd0:

What IS that crazy movie(?) dialog from, with the waitress rattling off a hundred drink names, and the customer dryly replies "beer" ? ? ?
Avatar 2:32pm Mailman Tom:

I stuck my Joe E. Ross No Brow sticker on my 45 record box
Avatar 2:43pm trippinwithdub:

Is that Rex singing in the background (Rex and the Rocking Hoods)?
  2:47pm mic_level:

"Cry Danger" -- unless I have my noirs jumbled up, which does tend to happen.
  3:00pm gd0:

@mic_level: thanks. but not Cry Danger. Scrolled thru, no drink waitress. Did find the "that's me - available" line, tho. Haha.
