Celine Dion? That's got to be some kind of child abuse.

Hey ASH!  Noticed you had an observation of the way people spoke, fast paced and such in a lot of these old films.  The filmmaker Billy Wilder, who had quite the large career, was not originally an English as he was Austrian-born.  He studied the English language through American banter from New York, so a lot of his films had face-paced and clever banter with accents from around the New England area (source Pers. Comm. Dr. Raymond Waters, regarding humor in the films of the Golden Era). :D

As for the sounds of their voices, it is something I've always wondered myself (hence my stumbling upon this)!  Hope that was a funfact for you :D

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
