    This is coming out this month. Roddy McDowell, a gay man in his mid thirties, plays a teenage incel with an overwhelming, destructive crush on Tuesday Weld. An odd movie that has only become odder with time.

      Wild movie. It was even crazier the first time I saw it on TCM with all the boom mics. I sort of thought they were intentional.

        It has cult classic written all over it. It has energy. It has style. It has pop.

        LORD LOVE A DUCK is truly one of the 'lost treasures' of the era. While not 100% successful, Writer-Director Axelrod attempts to show the underside to the sunny innocent beach party/surf culture of the Southern California. Imagine Tuesday Weld as the evil twin of Sandra Dee's GIDGET or Annette Funicello's BEACH PARTY characters - with a distinct 'White Trash' allure. What's so refreshing here is that LORD shows teenagers of the era as they really were - not the scrubbed clean goofballs of the above mentioned prototypes (and you could toss in the squeaky clean image of The Beach Boys to boot - and boy do we now know how deceptive THAT image was!). We don't get simple boy meets girl dating problems here. No, there are masher evangelicals, arsenic poisoning and whipped principals here. Worth seeking out, especially if black comedy is something that pleases you.
