Forgotten Books: Eternal Fire -- Calder Willingham

In 1964 I picked this off the spinner rack for some reason or other. Maybe I liked the title. Anyway, I'm sure I didn't know what a treat I was in for.

It's a long and complicated tale of murder, love, sex, and treachery in the deep south. Randolph Sudderland Shepherdson III is rich, happy, and engaged to Laurie Mae Lytle, a beautiful schoolteacher. Well, Randy isn't really rich. He hasn't yet come into his full inheritance, which is due on his marriage. Unfortunately, his guardian, Judge Ball, has already spent most of the money, so he has to come up with a way to prevent the marriage.

The way he decides upon involves a man named Harry Diadem. Harry is 25 years old and has had his way with (so far) 603 women (Harry keeps good records). The judge wants him to make Laurie number 604.

Throw into this mix a religious, alcoholic, incestuous cop, a dwarf with super strength, a blackmailer, a woman named Sugar Dolly, and a great courtroom scene. The result is a hilarious send-up of Southern Gothic fiction by a masterly writer. Willingham might be better known for his Oscar nominations as a scriptwriter (The Graduate, Little Big Man), but nobody interested in good fiction should pass up his novels.

Forgotten Music -- Jimmie Rodgers

Jimmie Rodgers, the pop singer, is no relation to Jimmie Rodgers, the Singin' Brakeman. The pop Rodgers hit the top of the Billboard charts in 1957 with his recording of "Honeycomb," a neat bit of folk-pop that I found very appealing.
I liked Rodgers' voice, and I enjoyed any number of his follow-up hits in the same vein, songs like "Kisses Sweeter than Wine."
But the song that really endeared Rodgers to me is this one, which comes from an album and was never released as a single:
Rodgers had a TV show in the late '50s, and I tuned in just about every week. He continued having hits into the '60s when a curious incident occurred. It would, in fact, make a good plot for a crime novel. Nobody, not even Rodgers knows for sure what happened. He says he was pulled over for speeding, and the next thing he knew, he awakened from a savage beating. He didn't perform for a long time afterward, but he eventually began recording again, never reaching his former level of success. As far as I know, he hasn't performed in many years, but I still listen to his songs now and then.

I'm a fan of Gail Fashingbauer's blog, so I'm happy that she and her coauthor have published this book. I'll be getting a copy for myself, and I thought some of you might be interested.

Generation X has been called an alienated and lonely generation, but if there’s one thing that brings them together, it’s a shared love of the pop culture memories of their childhood. In that nostalgic spirit, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PUDDING POPS? takes a look back at the iconic events and products that shaped their unique generation. Authors Gael Fashingbauer Cooper and Brian Bellmont, college friends and adamant pop culture enthusiasts, have mined the battlefields of discarded paraphernalia to provide the ultimate trip down memory lane from the days when MTV played music videos and Quisp and Quake duked it out for cereal supremacy.

Covering everything from after school specials to Benji, Pepsi Light to “Hugo, Man of a Thousand Faces,” WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PUDDING POPS? lovingly and wistfully revisits the past, offering facts and “x-tinction ratings” for those lost gems highlighted by Cooper and Bellmont.

Forgotten Films: Maniac

I first saw Maniac as part of a double bill (remember those?) nearly 50 years ago. I probably went because one of the stars was Kerwin Mathews, a guy I liked because of his work in several Ray Harryhausen films I'd seen and also because he was a high school English teacher (as I was at the time) before he'd found fame as an actor. I don't know what I expected when I went to see this movie, but it was a far cry from the swashbuckling Harryhausen films.

Mathews plays Paul Farrell, who's going out with a young woman whose father is in an asylum, having killed the man who tried to rape her. He used an acetylene torch in the murder. Then Farrell falls for the girl's mother, and they hatch a plan to help her husband escape. Things go wrong.

Maniac was filmed in atmospheric black and white and written by Jimmy Sangster, who throws in any number of good twists. Even though I'm telling you right now that there's a twist ending, you might not figure it out while you watch the movie. Back in 1963, it was a real stunner.

Mr. Monk on the Couch -- Lee Goldberg

Last Thursday Judy had a full day of miserable tests at M. D. Anderson (no results yet), and I had a long day of waiting rooms. I knew exactly what to take with me: the new Monk book by Lee Goldberg. Based on past experience with the novels in this series, I knew it would be funny, well written, and well researched. I knew it would have a clever plot and interesting characters. And I hoped I'd find some interesting developments in Natalie Teeger's life. I wasn't disappointed. It had all this and more. As a bonus, there's also a quite interesting change in the life of Monk's brother, Ambrose, one that added a good many laughs to the book.

The plot? It appears that a serial killer is on the loose in San Francisco, and as the victims pile up, it turns out that they're all in Natalie's neighborhood. There's a mcguffin, too, giving the title a double meaning. While that's going on, Natalie's making an investigation of her own, into the life of a man who's died of natural causes in a seedy hotel. Who was he? Why was he there. Natalie wants to know.

That's enough said. If you like the other Monk books, you'll like this one. If you've never read the other Monk books, what are you waiting for? This is one of the most entertaining series around. Highly recommended.

Hard Bargain -- Emmylou Harris

Back in 1975 when I bought an LP called Elite Hotel, I fell for Emmylou Harris's voice. I never imagined that all these years later I'd be listening to a new album by her, but here I am, and believe me, the voice is still just as wonderful to hear as ever. One of the striking things about Harris's career is how consistent she's been. She knows how to pick a song, she knows how to sing it, she knows how to put it across.

Harris is known as a interpreter of other people's songs, but on this album, most of the songs are her own, which is a good thing because she's also a fine songwriter. I can't pick a favorite yet. They're all too good. I'm looking forward to many more.
