so, every now and then i like to try and re-watch movies i saw when i was a kid/teenager to see if i feel differently about them now that i'm a proper adult. currently i'm watching the right stuff, which i recall liking very much as a kid. it's holding up very well, although i'm having the same reaction now as then: not enough sam shepard, hehe.
anyway. whenever i am nostalgia-watching movies i tend to geek out on imdb, etc, to learn more about the movie. this movie made me go to imdb when at the start of it i recognized a kooky actress, o-lan jones (among other things, you might recall her as the organ-playing religious nut in edward scissorhands).
... wait, what?! sam shepard and o-lan WERE MARRIED? FOR 15 YEARS? never knew this! neeeever would have thunk it either. oh, imdb trivia-section -- how i love thee.
okay, back to men and chimps in space!
