@dale don’t forget Marlon Brando too in Viva Zapata! Cringe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm joe mulligan:

great show Devon! I had an Apollo 11 party last summer and we played a lot of "space age jazz", "astro tiki", and threw in some spy jazz and bossanova like this. ahhh summer outdoors..
Avatar 7:12pm dale:

or mickey rooney as a chinaman in breakfast at tiffany's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm ultradamno:

Not one of the better drivers in cinematic history, Hilligoss' character.
Avatar 7:17pm Devon E. Levins:

HI Lady Nightingale! Welcome back on Morricone Island.
Avatar 7:17pm JakeGould:

To counter that, casting Eli Wallach as Tuco Ramirez in “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” oddly worked well…

Now Alfred Molina as Tevye in the Broadway production of “Fiddler on the Roof” is odd too… Not bad but honestly, that doesn’t need to happen again.
  7:25pm P-90:

Just to clarify: Mr. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is Japanese, not a “chinaman”.

Gonna watch Machine Gun Mcain tonight... Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm mariano:

Any of a number of Western actors who played Jesus and many other Biblical figures.
  7:30pm Andal:

I just tuned in. Menomena?! Please enlighten me, neighbors. Who sang the original?

Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra . . .

sorcerer is fantastic. especially the little twist at the end.

Alessandro Alessandroni (Kema's husband) sang it on Piero Umiliani's score to Italian Mondo film Sweden Heaven & Hell

Big day for Vangelis on WFMU.

Devon...great set. Thank you!
Avatar 7:44pm Marcel M:

Sounding good, Devon.
Avatar 7:45pm Devon E. Levins:

Who else played Vangelis today??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm mariano:

There was a lot of yellowface back in the day. The Charlie Chan series, The Good Earth, The King and I, Flower Drum Song, etc. This just reminded me: when I was in 5th grade, the 7th and 8th graders' play was The King and I. Yikes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm ultradamno:

Creamo Coyl played The Dragon
Avatar 7:46pm JakeGould:

I honestly think all of the biblical casting is not great but can be excused by the larger fact that biblical figures are typically misrepresented outside of film.

But I think things like Mickey Rooney doing what he did is really obscene. And Charlie Chan? Horrible.
  7:46pm Colleen:

that was lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm mariano:

True about Biblical figures, good point. Yeah, those "Asian" portrayals were pretty egregious. Speaking of egregious, remember "Japanese" Sean Connery in "You Only Live Twice"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Mr. Pumpy:

SQÜRL! This is such a killer soundtrack.
  8:00pm Andal:

Fake Japanese Connery was pretty awful. Who approved that? Also, an atypical Bond in terms of plot and lack of travel.
  8:00pm P-90:

Thanks Devon!
