Tucker - The Man and His Dream
Tucker - The Man and His Dream

Director Francis Ford Coppola and executive producer George Lucas shared a strong desire to film the story of Preston Tucker, the man who revolutionized car design in the late 1940s, only to have his innovation squelched by the "big three" automakers in a legal battle between Tucker and powerful political lobbies. Coppola surely related to and sympathized with Tucker as a visionary underdog, and so this stylish, energetic film envisions "the man and his dream" in idealistic terms--an unabashed optimist (played by Jeff Bridges) who realizes his vision through blind faith and tenacity. Martin Landau gives a superb, heartbreaking performance as an associate who desperately wants to share Tucker's enthusiasm, but knows that corporate wolves are knocking at the door and will soon burst in with fangs bared. Joan Allen is equally good as Tucker's supportive wife, and the film's combination of dazzling costumes, production design, and the fabulous Tucker itself (of which only 50 models were made) creates an infectious atmosphere of postwar optimism. In the end, however, this fascinating film is much like Coppola himself: possessed of genius, blinded by ambition, and prone to create works of erratic brilliance. Don't take that as criticism, however; this is a sharp, underrated film about a dreamer whose dream was a worthy one, even if it only briefly came true. --Jeff Shannon

Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company Blueprints for Building #77 at the East Plant Facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut USA Production Home of Little Wonder Records - Circa 1917-1918
Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company Blueprints for Building #77 at the East Plant Facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut USA Production Home of Little Wonder Records - Circa 1917-1918
Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company Blueprints for Little Wonder Records 5 Blueprints for Building 77 of Bridgeport Connecticut USA Manufacturing Plant Location of Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company which is the company that Later Becomes or encompasses and various record labels including Columbia Records - Sony Music - EMI - Epic Records - Okeh Records - Vocalion Records This is a set of five pages of blueprints for the proposed layout of major record production equipment on five floors of a structure called Building No. 77 on the property of the East Plant of the Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company main location in Bridgeport, Connecticut. There is a building described on Drawing # 80 (page one of the East Plant blueprints) as "Future Building". These East Plant blueprints are listed elsewhere on ebid.com as the Columbia Graphophone Bridgeport Sony Music Blueprints By comparing this Future Building to the more detailed blueprints for a Building # 77 located on these blueprints listed here , I have deduced that the "Future Building" detailed in the East Plant blueprints and the Building # 77 listed here are indeed one and the same. It is worth noting that record pressers for Little Wonder Records are noted as being on the fourth floor of both "Future Building" and "Building # 77". The other notations for the functions on each building floor of both "Future Building" and "Building # 77 are identical. The description and rough design of "Future Building" is a preliminary layout for the far more detailed blueprints of Building # 77. In any case, since it has been established that the East Plant was completed in 1918, and the blueprints for both the East Plant and Building # 77 were found together, it is reasonable to assume that Building # 77, as a designed part of East Plant, was completed sometime shortly after the East Plant in 1918 or 1919. Each of the five pages of blueprints in the Building # 77 set is approximately 17 by 26 inches. Four of the five pages are only slightly frayed around the edges but aside from that they are in excellent condition. The paper does not feel brittle at all. They have been well taken care of. The page that describes the fourth floor is the one page that has more extensive flaws. There is a half inch tear in the bottom right corner in the area of the information block that covers the word “The” where it says “The Columbia Graphophone Mfg. Co.” There is also a tear at the top right corner of this same page 1.5 inches from the corner an extending about six inches straight down. It actually sounds worse than it looks. Lying flat the six inch tear disappears so framed it would hardly show at all. What is really exciting about these blueprints are the details they reveal. Many of the detailed sections on the blueprints for Building 77 detail specific areas on at least two different floors of the building for the production and storage of “Little Wonder Records” Little Wonder Records were round 5.5 inch diameter inexpensive phonograph records produced somewhat surreptitiously by Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company roughly between the years 1914-1920. Little Wonder Records were produced for a relatively short period of time. These blueprints give unparalleled insight into the production details of these records. Undoubtedly these blueprints are some of few remaining documents that prove conclusively that the Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company was the producer of these rare records. These five pages of blueprints are undated but they are from 1920 or before that date. Another reason that this can be determined is because aside from the Little Wonder Records references on the blueprints these Bridgeport blueprints were found with similar blueprints (which are listed elsewhere on the ebid site) for the Baltimore, Maryland manufacturing production plant of the Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company (CGMC) and the Baltimore plans are dated January 19, 1920. Again, these blueprints were for a building on the Bridgeport, Connecticut location which was the main production location where the Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company produced graphophones, phonographs and records. The Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company (CGMC) is one of the earliest commercial entities that produced phonographs, graphophones and most notably phonograph records in the entire world in the earliest part of the 20th century. Since these blueprints are for part of the main location for CGMC, these blueprints are embryonic to the company. The Columbia Graphophone Manufacturing Company changes and grows and becomes known under many other names, the most notable of which are Columbia Records, EMI and Sony Music. This company through its many labels represent artists such as Al Jolson, Sophie Tucker, Barbara Streisand, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jac

Here's my tower of test equipment. On the bottom is the Tek 2246A, then a function generator, then the Fluke 8100A nixie DVM, then an Agilent E3610A power supply, then a Tek TDS210 with the MM installed. And for those observant people, yes, that is a blowtorch in the background.

Tucker & Dale Vs Evil [Blu-ray]

Slapdash Scary Movie cycle aside, the slasher genre has proven fairly resistant to effective satire, mainly because the movies themselves already go so far over the top. (After Jason goes to space, where else can you possibly go?) Arriving amidst some monster film festival buzz, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil scores big laughs by slyly inverting the formula, casting the standard backwoods maniacs as bewildered everymen surrounded by accident-prone teens. While it may basically be a one-joke movie, it sustains that joke for a remarkably long time. Kicking off with an effective Blair Witch jab, the story follows Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), two good-natured good ol' boys with aims of fixing up their rickety cabin in the woods into a vacation home. Before they've emptied their first six-pack, they find themselves besieged by a group of stereotypical college kids who start dying in increasingly bizarre ways around them. As the bodies stack like cordwood, the duo's obliviousness only grows. First-time director-cowriter Eli Craig clearly knows his subject material well, trotting out the skinny-dipping coeds and conveniently placed sharp implements with relish, particularly with a wood chipper that really should have received a supporting actor credit. Clever as the concept is, though, it wouldn't stretch nearly as far without the performances, most notably Labine as a Bigfootish idiot savant and 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden as a Final Girl fully aware of the situation's absurdity. Although the invention may sputter at times, Tucker & Dale provides enough amiable chuckles and ridiculous gore to satisfy even the snootiest genre fan. For the sequel, can we get them near a rocket? --Andrew Wright
