In Defense Of Skidoo

"If you can't dig nothing, you can't dig dig?"

That indispensable pearl of wisdom is uttered by one of the characters in Otto Preminger's 1968 "counterculture" film, Skidoo, which I discussed last week. The aformentioned line also closes blogger Tim Lucas' persuasive arguement in favor of the film, which you can read by clicking here . And yeah, the line does sound "Beat". (Strange bedfellows and all that...)

Me, I kinda liked the film's bouncy theme song (sung by Carol Channing!) myself. And those end credits.....! -Ed
