  1. So Paul Rhymer has an idea for a Vic & Sade script about H.K. Fleeber’s alleged forty-eight teeth. He ponders how he can get ten minutes worth of dialogue out of this, and says, “Eureka! I’ll have Vic pondering over the same problem I am! That ought to do it.” And it did.

    Will this site let me post links? If so, this seems appropriate:

  2. I think that happens now and then. Sometimes, just an ordinary situation occurs and a little twist takes place.

    I think this script would have benefited if Rush and Sade had driven Vic away from the writing altogether.

    Wonder why Fleeber had no tooth for D.C.?

  3. Wouldn’t be symmetrical. With 48 you got 12 on each side, upper and lower. (Geez, you’d look like the Zuni fetish doll from “Trilogy of Terror”.)

  4. Not familiar with that film…

    I enjoy this part of the show:

    RUSH: [dramatically] In the human mouth, Gov… [pause]

    VIC: Yeah?

    RUSH: [dramatically] In the human mouth, Gov… [pause]

    VIC: [impatiently] Yes? “In the human mouth, Gov” what?

    RUSH: There’s only thirty-two teeth!

    VIC: Who says so?

    Billy Idelson was such a good actor.

  5. Yes, he was very in this role. (By the way, do you think his Rhymerian name “Idle Son” had anything to do with him getting the role?) I’m going to have to go back and watch some old TV episodes to remember what he was like later in his career.

  6. re: Idle Son = ? no

    As a tv actor, he was quite boring, I thought. Or at least nondescript. A much better writer. Odd that he wasn’t a great tv actor.

  7. yeah, idleson was a stiff actor, at best. by the way, anyone tracking down his book of ‘dirty letters from paul’?

  8. Never have read it, but I believe it is this book you are referring to:

    Hopefully Duckert will chime in here, he has this book I believe. (I haven’t read it because it’s not really the story of VS at all; from what I hear, only a paragraph in there about Hartzell and pretty much nothing about David Whitehouse).
