This one is for our old friend Ronnie a.k.a Bela.

Great person, great guy who's been through a rough patch lately ~ he's part of the lifeblood of this family on here and I think we all should give him a group hug.  Smile

He's cantankerous to his enemies but a true gentlemen to his friends.  I'd say if one member has been a foundation on this board it is him.  To RC  Cheers

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Here's to BMDO's ambassador from Michigan - the greatest Bela Lugosi fan of all time - and a true gentleman of bad movie fandom!  Hats off to RC!

He's a lovable rascal all right  TeddyR  It's always interesting to hear what he's up to, or gotten himself into.

RC is great guy with a lot of problems.  I worry about the man, especially when he's without a computer.

He is also a great artist.  He is greatly influenced by Robert Crumb.  He graced me with an original drawing of Spock  done in this style and though he hasn't mentioned it here, he has done drawings for his local paper, he sent me one of those too. 


I hope he gets a computer soon.

RC is a fount - a FOUNT I tell you! - of information about the older films, stars, comics - you name it.  He's our very own Forry Ackerman!  I hope he can come back soon.  He adds dimension to the community here.

RC is amazingly well versed in the classics whether they be the best of the good, or the best of the bad, although he does seem to have a pronouced fondness for the so-called bad. He definitely knows his stuff and is one the most knowledgable fans I've come across on the web and I've stumbled across some great fans (themselves fountains of fandom experience, actually having grown up in the 50s & 60s and/or 60s & 70s) between here, Scifilm, the IMDB, Sinister Cinema and the Wormboard. I greatly miss RC's input here.

I'm reviving this old thread that TREVOR started nearly a year ago.  I don't think Ron Merchant ever saw it.

RC is a good soda.  So since RC Merchant obviously sells this product he's tops in my book.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
