Last Show Recap

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Frank Henenlotter

Special Guest

Biography:

Writer/director Frank Henenlotter began making 8mm films as a teenager. His 16mm black-and-white short "Slash of the Knife" actually played at a 42nd Street midnight show with John Water's "Pink Flamingos." Henenlotter briefly worked as a commercial artist and graphic designer prior to embarking on a career as a filmmaker. Henenlotter's pictures are distinguished by their offbeat plots, cheerfully lowbrow humor, excessive gore, and pervasively sordid atmosphere.

Henenlotter made a smashing horror film debut with the marvelously gruesome and sleazy monster splatter gem "Basket Case" (1981), which delivered a surprisingly substantial amount of touching pathos along with the expected over-the-top explicit violence and hilariously scuzzy humor. Henenlotter's follow-up fright feature was the inspired "Brain Damage" (1987), another grotesquely original and imaginative tale. "Frankenhooker" (1990) was an uproariously rude'n'raunchy tongue-in-cheek hoot while both "Basket Case" sequels are very amusing and enjoyable affairs. Outside of writing and directing, Frank has been responsible for reissuing an enormous volume of vintage 60s and 70s horror, soft-core and exploitation movies on VHS and DVD alike for Something Weird Video; he has also served as an extremely funny, lively and entertaining moderator on numerous DVD commentaries for Something Weird Video. After a regrettably lengthy absence from filmmaking, Frank Henenlotter made a welcome comeback with the typically bizarre "Bad Biology" (2008).
