That Bizarre Object Over There

ELI: That bizarre object over there is the one and only Dusenberg we have in stock. When it goes into the river, hopefully we shall not see its like again. So, once the action starts, no matter what happens, keep film rolling. We must have this shot. I therefore order that no camera shall jam, and no cloud pass before the sun.

The Stunt Man (1979), a marvelous performance by Peter O'Toole that garnered an Oscar nomination but had the misfortune to be up against... umm... a make-up award vehicle.

The echoes of Our Dear Leader's latest piece of performance art, in both the rhetoric and the dubious reality orientation, are a bit disturbing. If God could do the tweets we can do, he'd be a happy man.
