THE ENEMY ACE, THE EIGHTY VICTORIES

Eighty victories,” she whispered, and the newspaper slipped from her hands, spilled to the floor. “Oh Manfred, you bastard.”

“Mum?” asked her son.

“Rosalyn!” This was her husband. “Language!”

They were in the sitting room. The sun had gone down and the servants had been dismissed for the day.

I WILL WRITE THIS FUCKING STORY, SOMEDAY.

Did anyone see that Red Baron movie a few years ago?

Hunh. This is definitely an ashtray chat.

  1. “Curse you, Red Baron!”

  2. The only Red Baron movie I ever saw was the one aka VON RICHTHOFEN AND BROWN, directed by Roger Corman and written by OMEGA MAN scribes John and Joyce Corrington. It suffered from the casting of two charisma-free actors in the leads, John Phillip Law and Don Stroud. Watching the competition between them was akin to dramatizing the battle between the irresistible force and the immovable object.

  3. Didn’t the Red Baron have a cameo in THE BLUE MAX? Von Richthofen was a character in an episode of THE YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES. Not directed by Joe Johnston, but the episode does treat us to an interpretation of this über-plane:

    • Well, hang on, you crazy Hesse fueled Cimmerian, you’re going to see a Von Richthofen that’ll warp your mind (even more than it already is).

      • Steampunk Von Richthofen?!

      • Good grief, no. More like SOULSTEALER VON RICHTHOFEN.

  4. Ah. I am picturing von Richthofen’s Flying Circus as a flock of vampire bats — or should I say fledermäuser?

    • Nein, nein, nein!
