This week we’re back in the No Hold Barred script to discuss two of the more bizarre scenes from the movie – the diner robbery and the hotel room shared by Ripper and Samantha N. Moore. Overall, the final versions of these scenes in the movie are basically unchanged from the original draft of the script written by Dennis Hackin. However, by examining a few of the key additions to the final version – as written by Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon – we believe we are able to confirm a few of the stranger attitudes and biases at the heart of this legendary screenwriting duo – attitudes we could only speculate on before. Also, given how little these scenes changed overall in the final version, we are able to attribute many of their stranger elements to Dennis Hackin (a.k.a. Hack) himself, in particular from his depiction of everywoman Samantha N. Moore. While we may never arrive at a complete picture of Hack, we believe that our careful study of his work is shedding new light on this revered but mysterious American figure.
And in addition to analyzing the script, we give our definitive Super Bowl preview, cover some old diaper-centric business, confront a member of our listening audience, and cover such far-ranging topics as pasta, pomade, ZZ Top, Tyler Perry, potatoes, unusual deaths, Doc Holliday, the Bible, buttocks, murder-suicides, and Carrie Underwood. Don’t miss it.
