So I bought a poster that I don't think I can ever display or have framed.

I’m a huge fan of the lunatic fringe in art and culture, and am an enormous Crispin Glover fan. You might know him as “George McFly” or “that guy in Charlie’s Angels,” but Crispin makes super-weird movies on his own, including What Is it?, which is the most insane thing I’ve ever watched.

At a screening of his new film the other night, I bought this poster - not porn, but probably NSFW as it features a nude nazi Shirley Temple with a whip. It’s an amazing image, equally terrifying and hilarious, and an awesome artifact of a totally amazing film.

And then I realized that there’s probably no way I could ever display this in my home without someone getting any number of wrong ideas. And then I realized that I can’t even imagine taking it somewhere to get framed.


Put it in the guest bedroom.

:eek: That is the single most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen! I feel filthy just for looking at the thing.

It’s on my office wall.

My god I want to click the link but I’m at work!

You Rock!

If I had that it would have to be in my “boy” room outside in the barn. :slight_smile:

To the OP, I’m a decent Crispen Glover fan as well. What did you think of Dead Man?

Yeah, It reminds me of Steve Buscemi’s character, Seymour, in the movie Ghost World. He owned a poster of his company’s original logo which was a blackface caricature. Seymour hid it behind a stack of other posters you may have to do the same. Not a great idea to display Nazi swastikas in almost any case.

That is one bizarre image. What does it have to do with the film? Was it a prop or somehow promotional?

Can’t you hear it? That too-perky voice, singing “Animalisch crackers in mein suppe…” :eek: :stuck_out_tongue:

How old is she in the poster?

I dunno, it would fit it nicely in SHAKES’ bedroom. I think you could get away with it, but only if you frame it. Chicks seem to think all wall art must be framed.

Please wait - security will be right with you…

How was the new film? I agree with your assessment of What Is It?

It is fine, everything is fine! is a very different film than What is it?, though I understand their thematic links and connections. It is fine is done basically as a straight seventies thriller, albeit one where the protagonist is a man with cerebral palsy who you can’t understand at all who’s obsessed with long women’s hair and murders women after (and sometimes before) having sex with them. That’s filmed on an obvious soundstage, and so on.

I like it a ton, but I imagine most people would hate it. There is full penetration between Stephen (who you saw in What is it?) and several women.

This might help -

There is a nazi shirley temple in the film. But it’s a doll on a little throne/shrine thing.

I’m still trying to figure out how you could find a frame big enough to frame a Fathead.

Crispin grew up a few blocks away from me and was a good friend of mine between the ages of 13 and 18. He was a weird kid with an off sense of humor even then. I’ve enjoyed following his career since his first McDonald’s commercial when he was 16.

His father was (and still is) a working character actor. Crispin wanted to go into the Business since he was very young but his dad saw way too many child actors go down the tubes and wouldn’t let him do anything other than community theater type stuff until he was 16.

Come to think if it, his true acting debut was as the lead in a Jr. High Production of How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying. He went to a different school than me at the time but I went to see it with his parents. He was outstanding.

Is his father’s name Danny?


Actually, it’s Bruce and there’s a clear resemblance.

I don’t think it would be appropriate for your workplace but why wouldn’t you hang it in your home? You like it, hang it. It’s your money, your walls and probably a good conversation piece.
