A shoutout to imdb.com

So, SuperNova's link to Diane Franklin got me looking at imdb.com for a good hour. It is just amazing, even for a movie geek like me, the stuff you find out or re-remember on there.

During my tour of imdb....

I remembered thinking that Diane's character was hotter than the evil blonde, so I clicked on Amanda Wyss to check. Alas, no pic. So, since there was a Diane Franklin website, I checked AmandaWyss.com. Do you realize that there is a company that reserves hundreds of Z-list actors names for websites just in case they might want it some day?? There is also the implication that they do it out of the goodness of their heart (and to sell web design services).

So..back to Amanda Wyss. She was on Cagney & Lacey for 4 years? How did I not know this? What else don't I know about people from Better Off Dead? Well, it was written and directed by Savage Steve Holland. What's he up to lately? Funny you ask because apparently Howard Stern has hired him to write an updated version of Porky's, seemingly with the same characters and storyline. The big question is whether they bring back Kaki Hunter as Wendy and Tony Ganios as Meat like when Adam West wanted to be in the new Batman movies (is it me or does his imdb picture make him look ripe to play the lead in the David Stern story?)

Oh, I know--I agree. The original Porky's was just dying to be re-written. That led me to the re-realization that Kim Catrell was in the original. I also learned that the working French title was "Chez Porky." Which brings us back to speaking French and Les Nationals. So, in all...this was a highly relevant post to our blog.

Not only that, but we know from Better Off Dead that Diane Franklin can pitch. She kept hitting that street sign over and over. Great command.

Sign Diane Franklin.
