Amazing! I had no idea! Thank you Turner Classic Movies! Cold war paranoia in marionette form! Plus really weird sexual humiliation undertones! Plus outer space nightclub dream sequence! And no one ever stands up or walks! If people need to go somewhere, like even just across the room, their chairs just sort of slide over there! What’s particularly giggle-inducing is how seriously all the characters take themselves. As if they are trying to compensate for the fact that, as marionettes, they are inherently ridiculous. F.A.B.!
