Joey, Do You Like Movies About....Norsemen?


On one of those Netflix "moovies we'd recommend" whims, I tossed The Vikings (1958) into the ol' queue.

Who knew Ernest Borgnine could be so convincing as a Norseman? (I jest. I JEST!) Who knew the fjords of Scandanavia ran so deep in cheese? And who knew that the Vikings were such happy-go-lucky REAL folk (who just liked to pillage, rape and murder people), while the English were a bunch of scheming, effete fops.

And who knew that there was more than one Kirk Douglas/Tony Curtis movie that featured Curtis playing a slave who spends most of his time sporting a pair of shorts that are waaaay too short and waaay too tight. Never mind that Curtis' wife Janet Leigh was in this flick as well: I'm beginning to harbor some very deep suspicions about him and Douglas.

Try THE 13TH WARRIOR. Much better Viking movie me thinks.
