    This movie is from 1959. The reason I say that is I was drawn to the jet fighter image, immediately below the dog years insert, which, I think, looks much more recent (swept wing, etc.) than 1959. It’s also in the original poster (click for click-to-enlarge)

    .

    From that (or any) standpoint, the poster is much better than the movie.

    And on the premise that there’s never too much of a bad thing, its sequel was released in the US, February 16, 2016.

    StelBel started signing her Tuesday-Thursday posters with her actual name some months ago. Martinez is nighthawks.

    If someone else is interested, this tries to answer your rhetorical question.

    An artificial click-to-enlarge version, of this cropped image, can be found at the only work, by this artist, so far, to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog (yesterday). Its currently less-cropped, much smaller, parent image can be found here.

    Mermaids Frolicking (in the Sea) or Sirens (links show Wikipedia pages) is privately owned. It is shown, with a full, different coloration image, by a recent auction page (can be interactively enlarged there; but, still no where near its roughly 5′×7.5′ size).

    Another different coloration image can be found here. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated Ukrainian Wikipedia page has more) and collection.

    First work, by this artist, to appear here.

    An artificially enlarged version, of this slightly-cropped image, can be found at the only work, by this artist, so far, to appear in Mr. Melcher’s blog (yesterday). Its currently much smaller parent image can be found here, along with a description.

    Tuxen’s Art School (in Halmtorvet) (links show Wikipedia pages) is privately owned (earlier artist link is about this auction; sadly, its list links have expired).

    More about the school (including other English names for it, that you may see in other links), can be found in the pages of an online book preview, starting here, under Rebellion. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated Norwegian Wikipedia page has more) and collection.

    First work, by this artist (did more than paintings), to appear here.

    We washed out what we could with our water; but, they decided to return to the trail head, rather than go on. I didn’t see them after; but, my guess would be yes (he seemed more concerned than she did about the whole thing – appeared to have been together at least 10 years, not newlyweds).

    Reminds me of the husband-wife couple I met while hiking in Glacier National Park. For some reason, he started to monkey with his bear (pepper) spray (I never touch the stuff), and ended up spraying it directly into his wife’s eyes. Luckily (for me), I was upwind at the time. That ended their hike that day.

    You mean “his word is his bond”?

    I suspect Mrs. Dole may have had that in common with prior speakers. Trump’s campaign finally admitted the plagiarism, even said its publicity was a huuuuge benefit. If Mrs. Obama’s speech was considered plagiarism at the time, I doubt anything would have been said following Mrs. Trump’s speech.

    Richard posted a blog entry for this strip, which points to the blog entry for an earlier strip in the rerun, before I started doing this; so, I’ve now added that link there.
