The Mouse that Roared: Ron Mann on Tales of the Rat Fink
Cinema Scope... The Mouse that Roared: Ron Mann on Tales of the Rat Fink by Adam Nayman. "...Excluding pro wrestlers and mob bosses, there aren’t many men who could live up to a nickname like 'Big Daddy.' It's an alpha-male moniker if there ever was one, at once outsized and self-deprecating, knowingly cocky and warmly paternal. Happily, the guy it was attached to was built to shoulder such a burden. Burly and beet-faced behind a tousle of dark hair, with a satyr's easy leer and a goatee to match, Ed Roth—the Beverly-Hills born hot-rod innovator and proto-kitsch impresario who emerged as one of the key figures of the '50s American counterculture—didn't just live up to the 'Big Daddy' gimmick: he lived it out." Also... the Trailer for Tales of the Rat Fink (QuickTime Video) from Tales of the Rat Fink at Sphinx Productions.
