In "HEAD", when the cow says "Monkees is ze CRAZIEST peoples!", who actually said that?
Jim Frawley or Hans Conried [Had to be included due to Davy see below]
Ref: Jim - The Complete Columbia Films, four volume set of books, states he did that little voice piece. This was rooted out on http://www.allexperts.com by Ashley G who contacted a rather cool dude called Randall Buie. Hans -They Made A Monkee Out Of Me pg 111 spelt [conrey], Daydream Believin’ pg 156. To be fair this had to be included, as Davy makes it look as if Hans said it on the film. He did coin the phrase when working with them on Paw. Well, according to Davy.
What was the name of the game Jim Frawley came up with that they played on the set and on the road?
Ref: They Made A Monkee Out Of Me pg 112, Daydream Belivin’ page 160, Hey Hey We’re the Monkees pg 137, there are sites out there that play a version of this game, if you partake could you please tell me how and why for that matter? Okay this game was made up by Jim and played by the 4 Monkees, Jim, Bob, Bert, Ward Sylvester & Jack Nicholson.
The game as I can figure out was one of the players would have to shoot another player, and they would have to do a spectacular death scene, if the ones watching judged it to be pants [Sarah Elf tells me I have to bracket here and put bad, because the Americans haven’t caught up with this cool way to say something is bad, pants = bad, use it to astound all your friends.] The dead player would lose a life, if they were judged good they kept their lives intact. Each had 3 lives.
Davy has stated that he once shot Micky when Micky was at the top of plane steps, and Micky had to die falling down the steps. That once on set Peter shot him[Davy] just as they were starting to shoot a scene, so he had to be a ham. He’s also said he knew it was all over when Jim basically shot himself in the head 3 times.
What was the name of the box that Davy had to stand on in certain scenes to make himself taller?
The Man Maker
Ref: They Made A Monkee Out Of Me pg 65, Daydream Belivin’ pg 84, Hey Hey We’re the Monkees pg 30.
What title did Micky suggest would be a good title for Peter's autobiography if he ever wrote one?
