  1. Ed Sullivan called and wants to sign up Be Stupid! Seriously, it’s good to see you busy and rampling as well! A fun Ribberesque program! So when you’re happy “Hurray!” or sad “Aw!” or frightened “eek!” or mad “rats!” or excited “Wow!” or glad “Hey!” an interjection starts a sentence right.

    Interjections, HEY! show excitement, HEY! or emotion Hey! they’re generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point, or by a comma when the feelings not as strong. Interjections, show excitement or emotions Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!

    I’ve been thinking about it (actually, I looked it up) “Magic Island” and “Speed Gibson of the International Secret Police” were written by the same person, a rather prolific gal named Virginia Cooke.

    Get this, Cooke went to school in Hollywood. One of her teachers was Edith Head. She was classmates with CB Demille’s daughters, Louis B. Mayer’s daughter and was classmates also with Jean Harlow, etc.

    [Since this was the “silent” era, she never got in trouble for talking in class, haha]

    Anyhoo, “Magic Island” and “Speed Gibson” (et al.) used many of the same actors and actresses. “Speed Gibson”, though, had star power, employing Howard McNear, Hanley Stafford, John Gibson and Gale Gordon, all who were regulars in the first series. One of the biggest mysteries remain: what actor played Speed Gibson? No one knows. There have been rumors that it was a young Elliot Lewis but you can tell that it’s not him.

    I am really looking forward to “Speed” and please let me know if I can record an introduction to the series for our friends to wallow in.
