BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Casebeer had the British paperback tie-in displayed in a place of honor on his "Gorilla Wall" (next to the DC Comics Our Fighting Forces featuring "You Can't Pin a Medal on a Gorilla!"). I thought it was a gag, but evidently not. Wasn't it Johnny Carson who used "Rula Lenska" as a catch-phrase code for talentless actress? (Later superceded by "Pia Zadora")Art Scott
Rula sold a lot of Noxema shaving cream.
WRONG! That was Gunilla Knutson.Art
Well, this answers a decades-old question for me: Who is Rula Lenska and what had she done before those hair coloring commercials?
I was so in love with Gunilla! RTN shows the lime Noxema shave cream ad as one of their retromercials. No wonder I prefer lime to lemon - an atavistic memory from the salad days of my "yute". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNtddMTxmLwhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRc8n7zK2x4http://www.tvparty.com/vaultcom2.htmlQK would make a good double-bill with Village of the Giants (1965).http://imdb.com/title/tt0059878/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rula_Lenskahttp://www.therockfollies.co.uk/rula.html
Well, Lenska knew how to pick her projects, anyway. This does look as if it, in its sub-BENNY HILL SHOW way, might rival REPTILICUS! for the dishonors of worst giant monster movie ever shown to paying audiences.
It's definitely in the running.
