Complete Dental Breakdown.



I’m not in the proper mood.  I come here with a raging toothache I’ve had for a few days now.  I’ve just come from my dentist who’s a very good dentist but rather rough and rather eccentric.  In yesterday’s session, I swallowed my tongue and my head broke off and rolled under the dentist chair.  You see, when he is drilling, he never looks in your mouth he looks out of the window because he feels that if you have seen one tooth, you have seen them all.  He drills into my gums, into my jaw, into my collar bone, down into my kneecap, and eventually down into the boiler room in the basement.

The Invisible Kid (1988): See it here...or don't. I don't care.

After 17 minutes of watching this, you will see why those 17 minutes were worth the terrible horrible excruciating pain.  I play, as you might have guessed, Dr. Theodore.  After my first scene I give you permission, Ladies and Gentlemen to skip ahead to the 56:56 mark.  Enjoy me.

The meager half-whit who runs this blog is merely relaying information and does not own or claim to own any of this festering refuse of a film.  If you wish to punish someone, go after he who posted it on Youtube in the first place.  I wouldn't blame you, but I wouldn't forgive you.  Which is more than you can say for yourself!

APPLE PIE (1976)

Watch for me at the 40 second mark.  I played Papa.  To be honest neither myself, nor anyone involved, knew exactly what the hell this film was supposed to be about.

A Nose (1966)

Below you will see a film written by Nikolai Gogol.  You will recognize the voice of the narrator and look for flashes of my endearing visage as it appears before you.

So sorry, Uncle Albert.

My mother, Margarete "Grete" Gottlieb-Lebach with her friend and mine, Albert Einstein.  The had a not so secret affair as documented by many who knew him and hinted at in his letters to my mother.  It was he who helped me get to America after my expulsion from Switzerland.
