The Hellcats (1967) (part 4 of 6)

Cut to a poster of a guy holding a sign that says, “Show us your pack of pot”, with the slogan “I’d rather get high than cancer!” Ah, times gone by. We pull back to discover that the Hellcats are having a party alfresco. Bizarrely, they’ve managed to get a couch and a mattress frame outside, and the above poster is actually taped to the couch. Monte and Linda have the mandatory chat about what they’re doing here, in the rather probable case that we forgot. Redheaded Chick exposits that the odds of a cop showing up are about as good as any other place, so they should just enjoy it. Yep, this sure makes me want to become a biker.

Trumpet Guy! Trapped in a world he never made!

Everyone gets really excited over a crummy station wagon appearing on the scene, and they pull out one of the bikers, whose sole character trait is a trumpet he lugs around everywhere. They carry him to a pond and dump him in, and he shouts something at them. Now, for all the razzing I’ve been giving other characters about their incoherence, nothing tops Trumpet Guy. I mean, he makes Debbie from “Manos” The Hands of Fate sound like a paid professional speaker. I think his lines would actually make just as much sense if you played them in reverse.
