trouble-with-the-fireplace:

Oh my lord… Thank heaven my 12-yr-old self didn’t see this. I know we’re all confessing bizarre childhood fetishes, but my prepubescent love for Laurence Harvey has to win some kind of award. While I still retain fond memories of his portrayal of Col. Travis in the Waynamo and have never ceased to enjoy scaring the crap out of myself watching him in The Manchurian Candidate, you have to admit that he’s a strange target for a tween fixation. Combine this with my love for Hamlet (the character and the play) and you have an explosive mixture in this oh so hilarious/disturbing scene from Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr’s film The Magic Christian. God help us all.
