Are you sure that's Rated G?

Okay, so Chris and I were watching an old episode of Password with Florence Henderson and Jack Carter as the celebrity guests. (Chris dubbed the pre-Brady Henderson as "The Golden Age Florence Henderson" -- she was incredibly cute, smart and clever in a short pixie-cut hairdo.)

Anyway, the host offhandedly mentions that Jack Carter was going to be in a movie called The Extraordinary Seamen -- which made Beavis and I burst out laughing, naturally. Who'd title a movie that, these days?

Looking it up on IMDB, it turns out it was a John Frankenheimer joint. But the incing on the cake was Carter's character's name: Chief Gunner's Mate Orville Toole.
