I consider myself to be a gentlemen and a very well cultured individual, but It wasn't always this way... Before I watched episode 72 of Gilligan's Island, The Producer, I was on my best day, a street urchin. I had no class, no style and my socks never matched my shirts or shorts. Also, my shorts were obscenely skimpy and rode up my ass all the time. It wouldn't surprise me if my balls hung out of the side of my shorts when I was sitting down back then. But that was the 70's and that's what street urchins like myself were wearing. I probably looked a lot like this schmuck most of the time.
Episode 72 Of Gilligan's Island was basically a reproduction of Hamlet, first staring the Castaways and then starring a producer (played by Phil Silvers) who was looking for new talent, named Harold Hecuba. This is where I was first exposed to Shakespeare and his genius and that's when I realized there was more to life than uncomfortable tight fitting shorts, filth, and ignorance.
By the way, this is exactly why I love Gilligan's Island, and all of television for that matter. Two performances of Hamlet in one half hour episode, while eating dinner. Harold Hecuba played all the parts in Hamlet himself. Hamlet was a musical production on the Island and was actually set to the music of Carmen. Please note: The freak who wrote the review of The Producers on IMDB is a bigger freak than I am. At least in my opinion.Finally after 36 years later I've realized my dream and I'm happy to say that I produced my first film. I'm pretty proud of this piece, and am grateful to the Birdman for directing it. I also have to thank the hospital for letting me film on location. It only cost my small production company (Corky-Vision or CV) about 35 grand for the two weeks that we were there, but trust me, every dime was well worth it. Incidently, when I do wear shorts these days they fit and my balls stay in my pants.
