Sad end to the 50-foot woman

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, May 3, 2011.

  1. Former Playboy playmate and star of "The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" was found dead in "pack-rat" conditions of her house. Officials have no idea how long the mummified body has been laying there. Not even sure whether it is a man or woman.

    Actually, I was under the impression that Vickers was "the other woman" in that movie.

    And she was: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_of_the_50_Foot_Woman

    I have two degrees of separation from the late Yvette Vickers, I learned this week. I used to work with a guy who's a major scifi movie geek, close friend of Ray Bradbury and such, who said he and his wife always talked to Ms. Vickers at Christmastime ... but she did not call him this past year. Now, of course, he feels awful that he didn't try to check with somebody out there about why she didn't call. Mighty sad tale, all the way around.

    I don't get it. If she was 50 feet tall, wouldn't she be pretty easy to recognize, no matter how decomposed?

    Should Obama release her photo so that conspiracy theorists are satisfied she's really dead?

    I wonder who among us on this site is not a pack rat. Ten percent?

    Pretty darn hot, especially since this is like 60 years ago.[​IMG]

    In her later years ... well, just don't dig that up.

    Kansas City girl. She'd have been perfect for a porn version of Wizard of Oz.
