Great drawing. Recognized her right away. Except I first thought it was the crazy singer from I Walked With A Zombie. I checked . Turns out that was a guy.

I need to see that movie again. It was probably the most deconstructed movie in Anatomy of Story by John Truby.

There's some other Val Lewton movie with a woman walking around with a guitar.

Wonderful drawing as always but I don't recognize her. I haven't seen the movie in years. Who is she and what is her significance to the movie?

She shows up in the middle of the eventful first evening at Rick's...Ingrid B. and her husband have arrived, Rick sees her, you think they would go right into "As Time Goes By..." or something more emotionally significant, but they have this lady show up and do a sort of sad Flamenco song (like "Fado" in emotional tone, I guess), letting the whole Bogart/Bergman thing simmer...unexpected!

Ellis--I love the Val Lewton shout out...but I don't remember the guitar folk you mention.

Here's what I want to see from Marty: A comic story where Teen Ellis meets all the old classic movie actors from the thirties, forties and fifties. Just like those old Warner Bros. cartoons where Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Carmen Miranda, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Durante interact with Bugs and Daffy.

I have no idea what i was thinking of. Some noir with a woman and a guitar. Here's Zombie Sir Lancelot

MrGoodson2 said...

I like your Marty comic book idea. I'd like Marty to have some creative thing he ran with for at least a Dave Steven's Rocketeer amount of time. He might get as much heat as Stevens doing it.

MrGoodson2 said...

But I don't think it would involve Teen Ellis. Or rather The Teen Ellis. Mayve The Teen Ellis and TV's Frank.

Since there's two boxers on this thread Think he hit him right-left or left right?

Tom Moon said...

The burglar can't remember anything that happened. I say the old guy hit him with a tire iron, then planted the knife in the guy's hand before calling the cops.

Tom Moon said...

Only Bruce Wayne and Marty Davis can take out guys with knives.

Davis Chino said...

All I can say is, you guys are making me laff.

(The Teen Ellis idea is funny, Tom, but I don't know if I could do it justice!)

Rickart said...

No one BUT you could do it justice, Marty!
