How did I miss this one?


Look under "Horner" on your shelf. It's the disc with the water-logged booklet and ketchup stains.

MaxB



Found it.

The booklet is not in too bad of shape, but the staples are a bit rusty.

As for the ketchup, I must have been eating meatloaf or something the last time I listened to it.


I thought the ketchup was my fault. If you remember the time when you bought the CD, we went to the Hearth on Route 46. I had that bad bland turkey burger and loaded it up with ketchup to give it some spice when I squeezed too hard. Well, that explained the ketchup stain on the disc. I think your copy of the BIG GUNDOWN also suffered the same fate.

I received this email from Gene Loftybeck, Rita's son. It is sad news.


"Hi Max,

Mom passed away over the weekend. I'm sorry I didn't call you or write you sooner, but we're having issues recovering the body.

Apparently, she died at the Sheraton in Columbus, where she was to talk about the life and legacy of Uncle Freddy. When she didn't show up to the venue, the organizers called the hotel and the manager found her in the room. The police are still investigating, as she apparently slipped on a half empty bottle of Jim Beam. This is highly unusual, as you know that Mom didn't drink.

Anyway, we'll be in mourning for a while, so all the Fivehouse projects are on hold for the time being. I can't wait to see you this weekend for golf and dinner.

Take Care
Gene

Sad news indeed Max.

But I'm sure the Fivehouse legacy will continue.

Please pass on my sympathies to Gene and the rest of the family.

The strange thing is that the only golf that I can play is miniature golf. I hope he was just mistaken.

I'm sure Gene will want to play 18 holes of golf.

You'll get your first up close look at the Montclair Country Club course.
Gene is a member in good standing there, but please try not to fall asleep on the course before attempting to finish the game!

I heard that Michael Lonsdale himself flew in briefly for the burial services.

Wearing his trademark dark glasses, he shook a few hands, watched the body being placed into the crypt, and then sauntered off quietly with two bodyguards to his waiting black limousine for his flight back out of the States.

I do not believe this funeral was covered at all by the media due to the fact that it was probably a private burial.

I'm sure you have some more details on this Max.

I heard the news through some old friends and sent a deli platter to the family. Not sure if they got it, but pass along my best to them, Max.

I went over to the house - they got the deli platter. They send the sincerest gratitude.

By the way, the golf was strange yesterday. I thought it was miniature golf, but Gene meant real golf on an 18-hole course. I was amazed at how much he enjoyed himself, for someone who was supposed to be in "mourning."

Hi Max!

Thank you for the flowers and for coming to the funeral. Mom's death was unexpected and we're still dealing with the aftermath. The Sheraton in downtown Columbus is harassing us for the rental car still being on the premise. Oddly enough, the rental car company is still insisting that mom return the car. I've spoken to everyone up the chain of command, including a divisional vice president, yet they insist that mom MUST return the car. I don't know how we're going to pull that off, since mom was cremated.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that everyone is in our thoughts and prayers. Now, we have to deal the matters of the estate, so that should be a bear to get through. Although, from what I know, Phil and I will be taking over the Alan Fivehouse franchise, and most likely all of the other properties that mom inherited from Uncle Freddie. We'll see.

Regards,
Gene

MICHAEL LONSDALE on the death of RITA LOFTYBECK.

"...My dealings with her were few and far between, however she always did make sure that I was properly compensated in an efficient and timely manner. I am sure that she will be mourned..."

Some words of comfort:

If your're the only one in the room at the time, then I'd consider having some Lysol and Fabuloso handy.

I have a Lysol "Special Reserve" for the times I doff my shoes and the room becomes redolent of corn chips...

I usually have one of those for my ass, after consumption of a large wendy's chilli with a baked potato.

But back to Alan Fivehouse.

FRED LOFTYBECK on THE DEATH OF ALAN FIVEHOUSE

"...It almost happened, but a number of factors - including Michael's demand for an increase after being told he would not be able to direct this one [film]- ended the film franchise dead in it's track. I couldn't sell it and Fox was done at that point.....We decided to give it a rest for a while....and then two years later we came out with THE FIVEHOUSE FIVE..."

JAMES LIPTON on MICHAEL LONSDALE

"Michael has this proclivity for fierce intensity when playing the part of ALAN FIVEHOUSE...At times, it was difficult to discern the character from the actor...He truly was quintessential..."

ALAN FIVEHOUSE DIALOGUE CLASSIC from WHO WEEPS FOR ALAN FIVEHOUSE?

"...Whence we all evolved from primates, Msr. Gugliermo. It is the nature of man to evolve - some of whom evolve less than others. It is this evolution that creates a distinct line between a finely crafted Gouda and a pungent Linberger..."

JOHN SCOTT on scoring THE ALAN FIVEHOUSE MURDERS

"...The theme is basically an ostinato turned on itself, which is what I imagine Fred [Loftybeck] was thinking when he, uh, envisioned this film?...(Laughing)"

Was perusing this once again today. The inside stories behind the Fivehouse films are priceless. Lonsdale could be a pest at times, but who other than HE could pull off this role in such classic style.

Anz,

There will never be another Michael Lonsdale, much like there will never be another ALAN FIVEHOUSE. His performance - some have called it "oblivious confidence," which some have argued is a codeword for "arrogance" - clearly set the standard for the type of role that demanded his talents.

To think that we had to sit through nearly an hour of that awful MUNICH to see, whith great anticipation and excitement, our beloved Mchael Lonsdale and his screen presence, while cooking with Eric Bana. It was simply intoxicating! I couldn't put the bottle of Riesling down, that's how intoxicating he was!

Anz,

I got a copy of the FIVEHOUSE compilation album from SilverScreed Records. Paul Bateman and the City of Prague Philharmonic. Very nice recording, tightly miked. Doesn't sound like most of those "airy" sounding CTS Wembley early 80's Soundfield microphone quality recordings.

Bravo!

MaxB

P.S. Now, I'll have to find out from the Loftybeck brothers what's going on with the BROWN BOX, now that they have had their period of mourning.
