Paging Roy Orbison

The Local: "When police raided a home in Lule in northern Sweden last November they discovered a small arsenal of weapons, including a shot-gun built into a guitar."

Possibly my most obscure headline ever.

    I saw the movie years ago. But no more hints because others may not have.

  5. I got the reference--a banner day!

    BTW, I saw that movie once and must say that Roy's acting talent was inversely proportionate to his singing talent.

  6. One reason Orbison left Monument to sign with MGM records was that they promised him a movie deal. After the first one, I think everybody realized what a bad idea that was. But, as Jerry said, the music was good.

  7. Never saw the movie but I heard it was a stinker.
