Category: Something To Think About
I’m reminded that Woody Guthrie had a sign on his guitar that said, “This machine kills fascists.” Imagine all the great songs Phil Ochs would have written in response to T***p’s stormtrooper attacks on American citizens. Commit a thought crime today!
This is the only Classics Illustrated title that I remember owning. I’m sure there were others but even comic books often dissolve in the mist of time. The funny thing is I vividly remember the scene where Michael Strogoff is blinded by the super-heated Tartar knife passed before his eyes. I didn’t know you could do that. I also didn’t know what a Tartar was and even today I’m not totally sure.
I also remember thinking “Strogoff” was a weird name, especially when linked with a great name like “Michael.”
Remembering Shirley Knight: In the 1960s there were a dozen films that made such an impact on me that I often think of them after over fifty years. This is one.
