I've had no reason to get into my carb aside from once cleaning a clogged pilot jet and doing the .22 Mod, but when I eventually have to go beyond that, I will certainly refer to these videos. Thanks, Tom.
The lady is "Norma Desmond," a fading SILENT FILM star; "TALKIES," motion pictures with sound tracks (as you now enjoy in your friendly local mega-movie theater) have come onto the scene, and she lives in her fantasy world of bygone glory and adulation; GRANDIOSITY.
So, her mental DVD apparently runs on "REPLAY," before "Mr. DeMille" (most prominent Hollywood film director of the time, playing himself), vainly announcing she's ready for her close-up, when no one will ever film her close-up again . . .
BTW, William Holden earlier found out; making friends with Norma Desmond was NOT a good idea, as he wound up floating, face down, in a Hollywood swimming pool . . .
Screen the flick! "Sunset Boulevard."
Oh, yes. Self-effacing Tom Schmitz is no Norma Desmond! He's a current and genuine super star!
Sincere thanks for the effort in making the excellent video, Tom!
You're very welcome. The videos are fun to do and, because I'm too lazy to plan ahead and write a script, I come up with some great boo-boos and brain farts. The less serious I fix with text in the video. The others wind up in the blooper reel.
