Watch the Whole Movie!
This episode we pay tribute to one hell of a human being, one of the best entertainers in history and possibly the sole reason that Vince McMahon has a successful business; one Roddy Rowdy Piper. In 1988, shortly after the success of They Live, Roddy starred in a little film called Hell Comes to Frogtown. It's the story of a man in charge of boning lots of ladies while kicking ass along the way. Well that sounds pretty rad....and it is.
On a personal note, Hot Rod was a real big deal to me. I grew up watching and rooting for Rowdy and Macho Man more than any other wrestlers. I remember being astounded about how energetic Roddy was and how everyone else seemed so rehearsed but he was just off the cuff with anything he said. You could see whoever was on camera with Roddy being completely unprepared with dealing with Roddy. I loved it. Roddy, you'll be missed. Say hi to Randy Savage for me.Streaming Do's and Don'tsMoonbase - NetflixThe Avenging Eagle - NetflixI Am Soldier - Amazon PrimeConan The Barbarian - NetflixGood Neighbor, Bad NeighborRip "The Ripper" Thomas - No Holds BarredFezzick - The Princess BrideDrax the Destroyer - Guardians of the GalaxyAbout Hell Comes to Frogtown - Movie InformationSam's Boring Bullshit
Director Donald G. Jackson was the man who made $1,000,000 with a $1,000. Roller Blade was the film that cost $1,000 and made $1,000,000, as it turns out it cost closer to $5,000 and made indeterminately over a million. A wrenches to not riches story, Don G. is probably not the American dream.
