Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Motel Hell (1980)

Vincent Smith: It takes all kinds of critters 
to make Farmer Vincent's fritters!

The actor Rory Calhoun was born on this day 96 years ago -- he had a long career starting in the mid-40s (and was very very handsome, see here) doing a lot of Westerns mostly, before leaving his most lasting mark (if you ask me) turning people into patties in the terrific comic-slasher Motel Hell in 1980. The film got a fancy blu-ray release a couple of years ago if you've never caught it, or if you feel the need to catch it one hundred and twenty-seven more times. He may've died in 1999 but still - Happy birthday, Rory!
