The Skydivers (1963) (part 7 of 7)

We cut away from the party mayhem (with the music being literally shut off, mid-note, naturally) as Suzy arrives at Frankie’s home to pick him up. And it has that deranged killer’s home look to it, so Coleman got that right, at least. Stick with what you know, right? I’d bet good money this is Coleman’s house, actually.

So, not only is this the night of the big jump, but it’s also the night of the Acid on the Parachute Caper. Funny how it all comes together like that. They drive off, bound for the airfield.

Back at the party, the surf song is still going strong, and so is Lady Wrestler. She spins Heroin Addict and he pirouettes away three or four times, then falls and rolls across the ground. Unbelievable. Lady Wrestler stands over him waiting as he struggles back to his feet. They continue “dancing”, although it’s really taking on more of a subdom feel at this point.

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
