Re: Rank the falling 'dummies' in the 80's

Very funny thread.  ajb007/lol

For me, this starts and ends with the guy in AVTAK who gets booted from the blimp.  First, the whole notion of a staircase that collapses into a slide -- did Zorin raid Scaramanga's funhouse  ajb007/smile  --  built especially for that purpose just heightens the absurdity.  Second, the dummy's knees hyperextend during the fall.  And third, we get the canned scream previously used for the MR PTS guy and Gobinda and later to be used for Necros.

Hilly...you old devil!

Re: Rank the falling 'dummies' in the 80's

I remember Calvin Dyson’s hilarious reaction of the falling dummy from Zorin’s blimp on AVTAK, and how they were silly to think that they could get away with putting that on the screen. I mean the legs are floppy and somehow longer whilst falling.

I remember reading about Indiana Jones and the temple of doom, in which
they had started using Dummies with electric motors in them, so arms and
legs could move as they fell, adding a bit more realism.
