Photo Hunt - Plastic

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is plastic. I really don't have much to fit this theme so here is a photo of Bebe and a plastic talking doll.. The figure is of Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar in the 60's comedy Carry on Cleo.

The Carry on films were a mainstay of British Comedy cinema from the later 1950s until the 1970s... A few of the films were actually funny (although most were pretty poor stuff)

Julius Casear says fifteen phrases from teh film including Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me! (see below)



And:

Casear: Friends, Romans

Mark Anthony Countrymen?

Caesar I Know!

The next clip includes that phrase and gives an idea of the silliness of Carry On Cleo



I'm not feeling too well today. I will visit when I can

Plastic isn't my favorite photo theme, either, but you were very creative, Jams. I pray that you are feeling much better and very soon. Blessings.

Sorry to hear that you're feeling poorly - hope you feel better real soon.

The whole concept of a plastic Julius Caesar doll (that talks, no less!) just cracks me up. Classic. And Bebe is a beauty. Nice photo.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather, Jams - feel better soon! Mine’ss up - please visit when you feel up to it - it's a quickie!

Somehow, Bebe seems to be not terribly impressed by old Julius. :-)

I can't believe you own this thing, she says laughing. I don't remember this one but you are right, most of them were very bad.
Get well soon Jams. What a bummer.

NitWit1 said...

Plastic apparently is a repeat theme, or so I've read from other sites. But you did well, and hope you are feeling better.

I had difficulty with the subject also. Not too creative at all.

I loved those broad "Carry On" movies, even the really bad ones, and commend you on your priorities in keeping the doll.

CherryPie said...
