Good Show Sir Comments:

♫ She’ll take a tumble on you
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue
She’s got Bette Davis eyes ♫

    Is Bette their agent?

  2. Max Bathroom Says:

    She doesn’t look like an Arnos, does she?

    It’s a lock Toby Jones gets a BAFTA.

    German things flying over Arnos Grove. Never ends well.

    Late in his career, Peter Lorre was finally able to get the role he’d wanted all along.

    Arnos had better flucht before he gets fucht.

    The best little whorehouse in Rostock.
    Don’t comment on the Madam’s hair color.

    Two scantily clad damsels and the terrifying ghost head of a Bette Davis impersonator. The sort of old broad you find parked in front of a nickel slot machine in a downmarket casino in a small town, smoking unfiltered Kools and yelling for another watered-down gin.

    Guess they wanted something for everyone, a couple of babes to uphold the traditions of SF, and then something horrific in the middle presiding over… a warehouse?

    Science fiction? I don’t believe you, cover. Pure horror all the way.

    Maybe they are supposed to be the three Fates — Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos?

    The REAL Enchantresses

  13. Tracy Says:

    OK how’s this, left to right: Ginger, Mrs. Howell, Maryanne.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: GSS! Just look how disapproving of all this Mary Ann is. Particularly her blouse.

    @Tag: “arms akimbo” for Mary Ann.

    Science Fiction covers are very specifically targeted at their core audiences, you see. In this case it’s…

    … I have NO idea.

    Try and guess who Trump wouldn’t hire to be one of his lawyers.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @fred: He wouldn’t hire any of them. Not as lawyers anyway IYKWIM. Wouldn’t give Bette the time of day.
