A host of real-life celebrities - including Hugh Hefner, Stan Lee, and Kevin Smith - journey into the world of comic book fandom! Documentar...更多>
Stan Lee: Everybody was talking about Jackson Whitney and Commander Courage. And I'm sorry I wasn't here for that time, but you know, I was off saving America and freedom and making the world safe for comic books. Donald Swan: When I sat through Pearl Harbor, I just loved that movie. But can you imagine if Ben Affleck was able to fly up, break the planes in half and dump the Japanese into the ocean? Anita Levine: This Botox is fabulous. I wanna do it every month. Maybe around my cycle. Cheer me up. Anita Levine: Alright, so we're filming this thing. Everybody mind their Ps and Qs. Donald Swan: There's something about you that I think not a lot of people know, and that is that you wanted to be a cartoonist. Hugh M. Hefner: That's true, yes. Ricky: You went the right way though, man. You did. Hugh M. Hefner: Because you grew up with this... [gestures with Commander book] Hugh M. Hefner: ...you have problems with this. [gestures with Codename book] Donald Swan: Well, if it were a separate thing, I don't care. But that it's based on this bothers me because I don't think these guys... this doesn't bother me. Hugh M. Hefner: It doesn't? Schoolteacher and his nephew. That doesn't bother you at all? Ricky: Hef, you're really, like, my favorite superhero. 'Cause you were talking about how everything was, like, buttoned-down in the 50s, Don. Well, Hef kinda came along and crashed through that wall and broke down all the taboos. You're like Pajama Man, and I could be your sidekick, like I could be Chick... Chick Boy. Derek Sprang: The first time I ran into Don, it's like "Wow, another mouth-breather with astigmatism and bad posture that digs comic books and weird old records and stuff!" It's like "You know the secret handshake too!" Ricky: Are there gonna be chicks there dressed like Vampirella? Taylor Donohue: Is that all you think about? Ricky: Yep. Taylor Donohue: Good man. Kevin Smith: The studio - they said they liked it, but they didn't like it. They kept pushing the giant spider in the third act. They wanted Commander Courage to fight a giant spider in the third act. Donald Swan: Literally? Kevin Smith: Literally! A giant spider. And I didn't get it at the time because I still lived in Jersey. Now I live in Los Angeles, I get it. Spider's a good idea. Wasn't then. But I was young... and straight. Donald Swan: Do you ever have to sell someone on an idea and they go, "Gee, I don't know..." Kevin Smith: Yes, there was this, um, this tranny hooker the other day. I was really trying to sell her on the idea of a three-way. Donald Swan:
Tranny... what's a tranny?
Kevin Smith: A tranny is... oh, Don. Taylor Donohue: 'Deflect', okay? That's your word. Donald Swan: Okay, 'deflect'. I don't know what it means, but I'm writing it down. [looking at a picture of a steam-engine train] Donald Swan: Now, y'see, to me, that's a train. It looks like a train, it's old, it's~ Ricky: I think to everyone that's a train, 'cause it is. Taylor Donohue: Uh, so, basically, you don't know anything about show business or anything. You're like a babe in the woods, is that right? Leo Matuzik: Like I said, I just wanna be honest with you - I don't know a lot of all this kind of stuff. Donald Swan: And just keep in mind, we don't know anything about sheet-metal work, so, you know, it all balances out. Leo Matuzik: You stand there for 30 years of your life grinding the same goddamn holes all day. Leo Matuzik: Little do you know, you know? Maybe that's why they say that - because you know very little. You don't know a lot. Paul Dini: They did put him in Vietnam and they tried to put a more whimsical skew on his adversaries. There was a character called Ho-Ho-Ho Chi Minh who was sort of a combination, like a gagster version of a Vietnamese madman. Comic-Con Patron: This place is so much like my dreams, it's scary. Ricky: Hey, Jenny, is there anybody dressed as the Hulk? Debby Newman: You know what, I did see Darth Vader! Ricky: Okay. Is he the Hulk? Devin T. Quin: I'm going to explain to you, in five words or less, what the American dream is all about: Buy my comic book, please! Donald Swan: The Beatles or the Stones? The Munsters or the Addams Family? Betty or Veronica? Leo Matuzik: Betty. She was the one. Donald Swan: She's the one for you because she's not so complicated, she's not so needy. Some guys like the Veronicas 'cause they love the challenge, and they think she should be spanked. Derek Sprang: You're Commander Courage! You're like Daniel Boone that was bitten by a radioactive Davy Crockett! [about Bruce's over-endowed Commander Courage costume] Anita Levine: I was not ready for Fellini's Satyricon in spandex. Taylor Donohue: This is, also, Leo Matusik. Anita Levine: You're the reason I came down here. Little dwarf boy, little strange man, do you even know who your great-grandfather was? Do you even know what you're doing here? Leo Matuzik: [confused] Yeah. Anita Levine: Do you know your name? Leo Matuzik: Sure.
