Fraz's Dune is my 'Bonfire of the Vanities.' Perhaps the best book I read in JHS turned into an unrecognizable mess on the big screen. It has jaundiced my opinion of De Palma [yes THAT De Palma] to this day. It hardens my heart against Bruce Willis more than any other shitty movie or Kevin Smith diatribe I've come across to date.
It's like if you told all your friends that XXXyyy had the best pizza on earth, and finally cajoled them into trying some. Then, when you get there, their only pizza has seagull shit laying in piles on top of it, and you're like "well obviously I wasn't praising seagull shit pizza, but you've GOT to believe me . . . "
All Redd [Foxx] did all day was coke, grass and ****. . .
So our first network taping, name in big letters right on the set, Redd doesn't arrive at curtain call.
I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
