Brute Force may be best known for a song that barely saw a release: "The King of Fuh." It's a song including at least two intentionally obscene double entendres, referring repeatedly to a "Fuh King" and telling everyone to "all hail" with a pronunciation that made it sound suspiciously like "aw, hell." Beatles George Harrison and John Lennon. Harrison found it entertaining enough to press and distributed 2,000 copies themselves in 1969 (Apple catalogue release 8). In 2010, "The King of Fuh" was released by Apple Records on their first "best of" compilation album, :Come and Get It: The Best of Apple Records." Brute Force gave Horror Happenings his Top 10 list:
Bela Lugosi for Dracula, " I don't drink wine."
George Hamilton at the opening of Love At First Bite, to the howling wolves... "Children of the night, shut up."
Sir Charles Laughton in Island of Lost Souls as Dr. Mereau..."No! Not the House of Pain!!"
and, "What is the law?" and Bela Lugosi, as the Sayer of the Law, responds, "Not to eat meat."
and Laughton, as The Hunchback/ Hunchback of Notre Dame..."Why was I not made of stone, like Thee?"
The Hulk..."Hulk bash!...Hulk smash!" And especially: "Puny human!"
Sigourney Weaver in the ending scene of Aliens...the upshot of her getting into the spacesuit, and for the camoflaged body of the Alien, to look like machinery, in the escape pod.
James Cagney...White Lightning..as he's about to shoot into the trunk of a car
in which a person is imprisoned, "Oh, stuffy, huh? I'll give ya a little air."
Buster Crabbe's Flash Gordon as the beginning of Sci Fi for me.
Pitch Black, Vin Diesel.
Dune, for it's beautful spaceships, weaponry and the worms.
The Thing (from another world), when the door opened and the Thing ( James Arness) appeared, my first theatre-seat-arm-rest-clutching moment.
Night of The Living Dead, the original b&w.
Planet of the Apes, Charles Heston pounding the sand at the end...
The Hare Krishna adherent dancing on a car at the end of Ghostbusters...why?...
because it's me, Brute Force!
The Jean Cocteau, Beauty and The Beast.
Elephant Man: " I am not an animal! I am a human being! I ... am ... a ... man!”.
Anthony Hopkins, just because.
Ok it's more than 10, but who gives a fuh.
