Born to Be Hardy?

In this article from the March 29, 1995 Tulsa World, John Wooley avers that Gailard Sartain is a natural to play Oliver Hardy.

I agree.  You may decide for yourself by watching the 1999 film The All New Adventures of Laurel & Hardy in 'For Love or Mummy' on YouTube.  
See you on Monday!

Love the Signs, Hate the Fish

One of the funnest parts of watching the Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting is getting glimpses of Gailard Sartain's graphic genius.  So today we'll look at a couple of the silly signs he made for the diner set which was used for an ongoing set of silly vignettes.
Two tuna-riffic signs may be glimpsed on each side of Sherman Oaks as he sits at the diner counter.

Here they are in screengrabs from various skits.

... And here are my replications.  Are they reasonable facsimiles?  Let me know!

See you Thursday!
