Happy New Year with some old tv show screencaps!

Oh god, okay, so it's pathetically obvious that I have this massive crush on young Martin Landau. He's got such a weird, ugly-pretty face, and just... goddamn. Those eyebrows! Blue eyes, dark and wavy hair, tall and skinny, big soft lips... ummmm. Listen, I need a time machine to the 1950s. I am exceedingly smitten, damn him.

Anyway, I took some screencaps of him in a 1959 episode of The Twilight Zone called "Mr. Denton on Doomsday." He plays an evil cowboy. Seriously. Named Dan Hotaling. Except he kind of sucks at being evil and is a wuss. He's also really, really gay. I'm serious, and I will offer proof.

First of all, this is one of the first shots:

Yes, he's pouring alcohol on this guy's face. Oh lord, what an obviously phallic shot. Hello there, symbolic ejaculation.

Then he teases him a bit, happening to say "C'mon, Denton" in a delightfully cajoling and sexified way.

But wait, there's more!

LOL lookit that hip swivel.

Here's a link to the episode online. Sorry it's not on youtube, but they keep taking it down. :( Which means this might not be up for much longer either. Also, sorry it's stretched out like that, I don't know why.

If you want more serious pretentious analysis of stuff, I started up an actual blog for that. Right now it's just got a couple of my cult films papers, so it's more on the srs bsns end of things. No, really, I can do this without being stupid about it.
