Bullet Breasts and Beatnik Poetry, “High School Confidential” with Phillipa Fallon

Phillipa Fallon

Sometimes you can just wake up in the mood for some Beatnik poetry.

We want to hear that wa-dee-ya cry from that broken saxophone on the dusty radio . . .the wisha-wish-washish from the pipe in my basement sink . . . that shining reverie from that crusty Madonna posing as some telephone operator on the other end of this plastic cup. . .

Something like that, right? But even better (though I’m gonna give it up for myself on that one)!

Check out this clip from the classic not to be forgotten 1958 film “High School Confidential” starring Russ Tamblyn, John Drew Barrymore and Mamie Van Doren (to name a few). The film was meant to be an expose on the horrifying beat generation and their libertine ways infiltrating every dark corner of the American Dream! And GASP! Your children ! ! ! EEK!

HighSchoolConfidential - Mamie Van Doren & Russ Tamblyn

{Mamie Van Doren Gets A Visit From

A Young & Shirtless Russ Tamblyn}

You’d think most parents would be proud to see their daughter schmoozing it up at some artsy bar, and rattling out some rhythmic articulation of her soul, but amidst the repression of the era, this film was just another hot potato of controversy tampering with societal morals and hardcore stepping on accepted standards of decency.

Today it’s fun to revisit, and imagine life the way it was in the movies . . . Phillipa Fallon, the lovely brunette in the clip, totally attacks the scene and will make you want to watch it over and over again . . .Not much is known about the actress, but there is a site dedicated to her which I have included the link above! Interestingly, she was signed to the same agency as the notorious Frances Farmer . . .

So take me to the Beatnik Bar, Daddy! I have a ringing in my brain that needs to be let free!

Tomorrow is a drag, Man! Tomorrow is a King-sized bust!

Sincerely,

Harrison Hops for Yoko! And takes a jab at McCartney from the Grave??


We do love our bold spoken hippie dippy style sister Yoko Ono, but truth be told, the tension between her and the Beatles was apparent.   We know she and John we’re all about Bed Peace and Worldly Brotherhood, so it’s funny to see-easy going George Harrison jumping out of his seat when he hears the beatnik vixen’s brash bottom has sunk into the same seat!

Harrison spares no expense as he takes a cute shot at bandmate McCartney’s charismatic nature either.  Watch the clip above to see George on a talk-show from the 70s for this retro rewind moment! Brought to you by The Eye of Faith !
