“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

Yvonne De Carlo


Herman Munster’s old lady, Lily! Yvonne De Carlo was quite a prize back in the late 40’s, so much so that after getting lucky with her Tony Curtis couldn’t wait to spread the news and howled across a busy New York main street to Walter Matthau “HEY, WALTER, I JUST XXXXED YVONNE DE CARLO!!!!” Many years later I would replicate this scene when, upon spotting my best friend Allan Nuttycombe in Rushden High St, yelled out “Hey Allan, I just bonked Fat Nancy!” Admittedly this didn’t have the same impact, mainly because (as regular readers of my Dark Side column know), I never got anywhere near bonking Fat Nancy!
