Hello again, Shmoes. I’m on the run, getting my nails done before heading out on a date with a fellow who claims to work for a major studio (but is noticeably not listed in my SAG executives guide, hmmmm.)
But as the importunate emails pile up, I can see you’re all ready to swallow arsenic to get a little Elke Sommer fix…
So, we’re going to give you a few nice links to this lethal femmetasm, just to tide you over.
If anyone’s fervent about her, pop me an email, and you can be honored with the privilege of helping me get our Elke Sommer section fully loaded — and of course, ready to fire, like that exploding cigar in the opening moments of the aptly titled Deadlier than the Male.
So anyway, in addition to the Elke Sommer video embed above — which, as always, will be backed up in preparation for the inevitable day when YouTube decides it’s no longer tasteful, i.e., they’re not getting enough ad revenues out of ignoring the IP violation they’re facilitating — here’s more stuff for you Elkeholics:
1. Elke Sommer — official home page. Check out her original paintings while you’re there. Enough said.
2. Cineme Steve’s 2010 “Elke Sommer Day” tribute. He’s also got more Elke Sommer items, but (cc: Steve Miller) it’s hard to find a category link or search engine at this site, so we’re linking to this one.
Steve wrote a tone of reviews for Rotten Tomatoes, and now has his own blog, where he has the ingratiating candor to write that his “review” is “mostly an excuse to post more pictures of Elke Sommer.”
3. The Elke Sommer Fan Group at Yahoo. Small, and nascent, but seemingly sincere.
We’re always looking for helpers willing to help me in my struggle as the internet’s Chicken Little — if 100 suggestions were convertible into 1 hour of actual work, every WomWam classic page would already be back on line.
Meantime, I’m off to the salon. If you have any suggestions for how I should deal with “studio executive” boytoy if he turns out to be a phony, don’t post, email. I can’t decide between pushing him off the curb in front of a bus, or exposing him in front of the restaurant for public amusement.
