Malice in the Palace

Malice in the Palace is the 117th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1949 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.

The Stooges are running the Cafe Casbah Bah (a Middle Eastern restaurant) and attempting to prepare a meal for customers Hassan Ben Sober (Vernon Dent) and Ginna Rumma (George J. Lewis) meat tenderising machine. The meal turns out disastrous: their spaghetti dinner is spilled all over the customers’ faces, so the stooges offer them a replacement meal: rabbit and hot dogs. Because a stray cat and dog make noises at inopportune times while Larry prepares the meal, Larry’s meal appears to be actual dog and cat meat, which brings Moe and Shemp great grief when ordered to eat it by their customers.

These two customers are thieves intent on robbing the tomb of King Rootintootin, which contains a priceless diamond. Because of their fear of a curse on the diamond, they decide they need three stooges to carry out the deed; the bumbling Moe, Larry and Shemp prove to be perfect for the job. Before ben Sober and Rumma can reveal their scheme, they discover that the Emir of Shmow (Johnny Kascier) has already gotten his hands on the diamond. The two plotters start wailing and, when ben Sober reveals his actual career as a doorman (and not the royalty Moe thinks he is), he and his accomplice are thrown out of the restaurant. The Stooges then attempt to steal the diamond back from the Emir, since it is government property and would likely fetch a large reward.

The Stooges arrive at the Emir’s palace dressed as Santa Claus. They then manage to acquire the diamond and make a quick exit, but not before dealing with a burly guard (Everett Brown).

According to The Three Stooges Journal, a part was written for Curly Howard after his brief cameo in 1947’s Hold That Lion!. The lobby card photo noticeably features a slim, mustachioed Curly as an angry chef. However, his illness caused his scenes to be cut (another story is that Moe Howard decided that “The Four Stooges” could not be sustained). A scene closely resembling the lobby card is in the finished film (with Hassan ben Sober in Curly’s stead); ultimately Larry assumed the role as the chef.

Malice in the Palace is one of four Stooge shorts that are currently in public domain (the others being Disorder in the Court water bottle holder for belt, Brideless Groom, and Sing a Song of Six Pants). As such, these four shorts frequently appear on low-budget VHS and DVD compilations and endless television reruns at no cost to the stations. The film was reworked in 1956 as Rumpus in the Harem, using ample stock footage from the original.

Malice in the Palace was one of five Stooge films included in the TBS 1995 Halloween special The Three Stooges Fright Night.

The 2004 NBA brawl between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons has come to be known as the Malice at the Palace, a play on the title of this short and a reference to the fact that the event happened at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

This short was seen in a movie theater in The Garbage Pail Kids Movie glass gym bottle.

Клан Мактавиш

Помни меня, когда я умру (лат. Non Oblitus)


Мактавиш (англ. MacTavish) — один из кланов горной части Шотландии.

У Мактавишей и Кэмпбеллов, возможно, общие корни natural meat tenderiser. Клан Мактавиш называет своим родоначальником Тависа Койра, незаконного сына Колина Мэла Мэйта и дочери лорда Суибне. О Койре не известно ничего определённого, но о нём часто упоминают хронисты. В частности, в генеалогии Кэмпбеллов, составленной в XVII веке, утверждается, что сводный брат Койра, Гиллеспик или Арчибальд, был родоначальником Кэмпбеллов, а другой брат, Айвер — Макайверов.

Аластэр Кэмпбелл считает, что основателем клана Мактавишей является не полулегендарный Койр, а историческая фигура, сэр Томас Кэмбел glass gym bottle. Того же мнения придерживается Дэвид Селлар.

Сэр Томас Кэмбел упоминается в списке кинтайрских землевладельцев за 1292 год. Его подпись («Томас Кэмбел, королевский подданный из Пертшира») присутствует в Рагманских свитках 1296 год. В 1324 году, скорее всего, после его смерти, его сын Дункан получил от короля земли в Аргайле, и в 1355 году уже был известен как Дунканус МакТамэйс.

Мактавиши несколько веков жили в крепости Данардри, хотя точно не известно, кто и когда именно её построил. Она определённо уже существовала в 1634 году, в 1704 году была перестроена. Сейчас на её месте ничего нет, так как её затопил Кринанский канал.

United States presidential election in Alabama, 1988

Ronald Reagan

George H. W. Bush

The 1988 United States presidential election in Alabama took place on November 8, 1988. All 50 states and the District of Columbia, were part of the 1988 United States presidential election. Alabama voters chose 9 electors to the Electoral College, which selected the President and Vice President.

Alabama was won by incumbent United States Vice President George H. W. Bush of Texas, who was running against Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis. Bush ran with Indiana Senator Dan Quayle as Vice President, and Dukakis ran with Texas Senator Lloyd Bentsen.

Alabama weighed in for this election as 6% more Republican than the national average.

The presidential election of 1988 was a very partisan election for Alabama, with more than 99% of the electorate voting for either the Democratic or Republican parties. The vast majority of counties in Alabama voted for Bush. Typical for the time, several counties nearby, but not inclusive of, the major population centers of Montgomery and Birmingham, voted Democratic, illustrating an urban spill-over effect. Marengo County continued on in this election as the heart of the Democratic stronghold in the Southwest portion of the state.

Bush won the election in Alabama with a victorious 20 point sweep-out landslide water bottles to buy. Alabama remains, in this election, very much a part of the Republican stronghold of the Deep South. The election results in Alabama are reflective of a nationwide political re-consolidation of base for the Republican Party, which took place in the through the 1980s. Through the passage of some very controversial economic programs, spearheaded by then President Ronald Reagan (called, collectively, “Reaganomics”), the mid-to-late 1980’s saw a period of economic growth and stability. The hallmark for Reaganomics was, in part, the wide-scale deregulation of corporate interests, and tax cuts for the wealthy.

Dukakis ran on a notably socially liberal agenda, and advocated for higher economic regulation and environmental protection. Bush, alternatively, ran on a campaign of continuing the social and economic policies of former President Reagan – which gained him much support with conservatives and people living in rural areas, who largely associated the Republican Party with the economic growth of the 1980s. Additionally, while the economic programs passed under Reagan glass gym bottle, and furthered under Bush and Clinton, may have boosted the economy for a brief period, they are criticized by many analysts as “setting the stage” for economic troubles in the United State after 2007, such as the Great Recession.
