Gillian's Found Photo #19

It's that ape again! See Gillian's Found Photo #3 (March 9, 2009) for the original appearance of Zip in the pages of the Houndblog. Zip, according to Red Boy was a character on the Howdy Doody television show, of which I have few memories of (born in '59, I only remember Howdy himself and Clarabelle). Anyway, the two non-simeon's look like they just stepped out of a late 40's road noir like They Live By Night or Gun Crazy (recently retitled Deadly Is The Female for Lord knows what reason, why change the title of a movie sixty years later?). Then again, the guy looks a bit like Boston cult leader/record collector/musician Mel Lyman , but I don't think it's him. What do you think is in her cup? My guess is a coffee/Benzedrine combination.

I think the title got changed because there was a modern (non-remake) movie with the same title.

Thank you , and goodnight.

This is not Hunter S.Thompson?
Not sure who the damsel is, but I
agree some crazy drugs are in the cup that they share.

I think this is my favourite so far.

Reminds me of natural born killers a little.

Ah, caffeine, platyrrhine, Benzedrine. I wish them luck.

If you look real close you can tell they're seconds away from crackin' up.
