OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM INDIANA BEAGLE:
Manley Miller is not related to Michele Miller in any way.
OFF THE RECORD STATEMENT: Even though Michelin and Manley claim not to be related, my own theory is that for a person named Miller to win a valuable prize and the person in charge of awarding that prize to be COINCIDENTALLY named Miller, well that’s about as likely as a presidential election being decided by a contested ballot count in a state governed by the brother of one of the candidates. Just sayin’.
And since this is MY rabbit hole and I am the rabbit hole King,
I hereby grant “INVITED” status to the 12 people who appear on this page. Please know that you 12 will accompany
Mr. CoincidentallyNamedMiller to the Special Event being planned for the Saturday Morning Dogs. Stay tuned to this Bat Channel for more Bat Information as details are decided.
My reasoning is that, first, I simply picked up on some clues in the Rabbit Hole:
- Don Knotts
- Late ’60s or early ’70s (Shakiest Gun in the West was released in 1968)
- Civil War reference (when I googled this, the movie came up)
Secondly, the plot line just sounds right. I’ve never actually seen the movie, but here’s the gist from the descriptions I’ve read, with comparisons to Don Quixote:
- Jesse Haywood is just a regular dentist, but with grandiose dreams of going West to “fight oral ignorance.” Don Quixote is just a regular guy who develops grandiose dreams.
- Jesse is tricked by “Bad Penny” Cushing into a farcical marriage he believes is real. Don Quixote believes in a fictional “Dulcinea,” who is really a whore.
- Under the deception of the marriage and the influence of his grandiose dreams, he performs “heroic” deeds.
- The hero rode a horse, which was Don Quixote’s mode of transportation.
- The hero travelled in a foreign land, with strange customs, going to war with an unknown enemy as did Quixote
- The hero faced physical hardship
- The hero was an I am not a we personality – the same as Don Quixote
- The hero attempted the impossible by crossing as desert the locals said could not be done
- The hero risked his own life to save another
How to Frame a Figg, a movie made in the late 1960’s(?) with Don Knotts as a bumbling man put in charge of the city books so the politicians can take advantage of city coffers without getting caught. Figured with the current political climate, Lincoln in this MMM (and on the $5) and the shot of Indiana Beagle as Batman (Yvonne Craig who was better known for playing BatGirl on the original Batman TV series but co-starred in this movie).
Well, there you go. I have to go back to sleep.
