Really, Walsh...do you think the kids who grew up in the age of the electronic leash and droning Zimmer Clone wallpaper underscore could handle the head-slapping ferocity of one Deacon Jones? They'd have to "close they eyes"!

As usual, you forgot to mention that Van Johnson played "Sgt. Willoughby" in this, which is an easy mistake to make, since his one scene is usually cut for television due to something he was doing with his hands throughout the scene.

JIM HENSON'S FANNY HILL (1969)

Disastrous first attempt at mainstreaming Henson's Muppets. "I'm still traumatized, days after the screening, by the image of a smallpox-scared 'Herbert the Frog' lurching with sexual menace toward the buxom 'Misses Swine' to the lush strains of Francis Lai's syrupy score. I still haven't been able to get Stanley Kaufman to let go of my hand, and my ears still ring from Pauline Kael's banshee-like shrieks of laughter." - Rex Reed. Production spares no expense in bringing this lavish tale of 18th-century debauchery to the screen. Cited by PETA, the National Organization of Women and Colonel Tom Parker for explicit content. Director Ken Russell fired during filming of infamous "Tet Offensive/Civil Rights March slaughter sequence," replaced by Roman Polanski. Peter O'Toole as William, Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Brown, Ben Gazarra as Mr. Poodlepants, Statler and Waldorf, Camilla the Chicken, and Ernest Borgnine as a pillow.
