To keep Autograph Hound Super-Sunday going, Halloween-style, how about a glance at a formal display from Brian Leno’s extensive collection of John Hancocks?
A couple of days ago Brian informed me: “Got up this morning and figured today would be the day I start listing, for my own benefit, all my signatures.
“Got to about 100 and sanity struck home — pure lunacy to even attempt.
“Just too many, Don. I would be writing for days — as Walter Brennan used to say, No brag, just fact.“
For me, Halloween is not Halloween without Hammer Horror, as in Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Hazel Court from The Curse of Frankenstein.
I was watching Frankenstein Must be Destroyed a couple of nights ago and at one point Cushing pulls out a surgical saw and starts taking someone’s skull off to get at the brain.
Hilarious. You can hear the saw blade grating on the bone. I’m pretty sure Leatherface got a few pointers from the good doctor.
