|I first met Mr. Kane when he muscled his way into my|
palatial, well-kept desert estate on National Striped Bathrobe Day.
|Before he came in, if you can believe it, he relieved|
himself on my front stoop!
|Then, upon entry, he shamelessly ingratiated himself|
with my granddaughter as I was fetching refreshments.
|My housekeeper reacted as any good frau -- I mean|
woman -- would. By drawing a pistol.
|Mr. Kane reacted in the most cowardly way possible --|
by using my granddaughter as cover! So he escaped,
without so much as a thank you for the refreshments.
|By now, the word was out about Mr. Kane|
being a fugitive --
|-- and he enticed a Miss Martin into pretending to be|
|Together they went on a spree of property destruction ...|
|... ending at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where Mr. Kane|
attacked Frank, one of my henchmen -- I mean employees --
who was minding his own business, peacefully
listening to Radio Berlin.
|Then Miss Martin cruelly tricked Frank|
while they were sightseeing at the Statue of Liberty.
|This led to Frank being ambushed by Mr. Kane and|
Miss Martin, and things very quickly got, you should
excuse the expression, out of hand.
|Do I blame Mr. Kane for Frank's death? Well, let's put it|
this way -- HE SOLD FRANK THAT SUIT.
|Well, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Judge the|
evidence for yourselves, and please take into account
my friendly manner and luxurious lifestyle. I believe that
the truth will triumph uber alles -- I mean, over all.
Made me chuckle. Very nice!ReplyDelete
I could hear Otto Kruger's voice reading your pithy take on the movie. Well, I could hear him reading all of the lines except for your very punny title. Ha! This is a treat!ReplyDelete
This post was a scream, David. The only thing I've known up to now about Saboteur was that Hitchcock directed and Norman Lloyd's fall from the Statue of Liberty. Now I actually want to see it! Good stuff.ReplyDelete
Well done! This is a great way to illustrate how evil he is, without seeming so ruthless. Just like a true Hitchcock villain.ReplyDelete
haha, as a fan of a well done gif I loved this, great captioning. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Great post David! Although I'm sure I wasn't meant to laugh as much as I did, he is a villain after all ;)ReplyDelete
BRILLIANT! I love that you turned it around and made Barry Kane the bad guy. Fabulous!ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating in our blogathon with this very clever entry. :)
I love the idea of National Striped Bathrobe Day. What a great tradition that would be. A very funny review.ReplyDelete
How funny.well done! Smooth villains can be the bestReplyDelete
Great stuff! I saw this not long ago and enjoyed it, though it's faded in my mind a bit - but your gifs have brought it all back.ReplyDelete
Your review was so creative and funny! I enjoyed it very much. Now I need to see the movie. I'm sure I will then appreciate your review even more!ReplyDelete
Shiksa Priscilla Lane gave credit to the French for the "Give me your tired ..." Who was Emma Lazarus? Chopped liver?ReplyDelete
