Do you like my new gecko? He’s from this episode. I honestly don’t know if that’s a gecko or some other lizard, but this is my fantasy life, so I’m making him a gecko. Beer and geckos! (Not that I drink while I’m writing or anything like that.)
This was one emotional episode with a side order of feelings and some tear-filled gravy! I always get involved in these family storylines, and Alex did such a wonderful job (as usual).
So this is how I found my username. By watching one of the worst movies ever. This 1977 Mexican-British horror movie was directed by notorious René Cardona Jr and was filmed at Isla Mujeres, a resort island near Cancún.
All the underwater scenes were filmed with live sharks using the submarine expertise of Ramón Bravo.
The plot can be summarized as follows: Sex, Drugs and… SHAAAAAAARK!!!
I never felt sorry for the shark’s victims.
However, I like the theatrical posters and artwork …
… except for the crappy German poster. Seriously, did they watch the same movie as the other artists? Did they watch anything at all?
Pictures from various sources, just google “Tintorera” if you want to know more
or watch the full movie on YouTube (if you dare):

The Great Sinner is a 1949 American drama film directed by Robert Siodmak. Based on the 1866 short novel “The Gambler” written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the film stars Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Frank Morgan, Ethel Barrymore, Walter Huston, Agnes Moorehead and Melvyn Douglas. (Wikipedia)
The film flopped at the box office, and I can imagine why. The Herald Tribune called it “pompous and dull”, I call it silly. Everybody who enters the casino in Wiesbaden immediately suffers from gambling fever, Peck’s character, Fedya, even physically. Well, it’s light entertainment, not a great Dostoyevsky adaptation.
