In preparation for part one of our two-part DePalma Deep Dive coming up this week, here’s MAD MAGAZINE’S take on (take-down of?) DRESSED TO KILL. Cleverly titled…UNDRESSED TO KILL!
From MAD MAGAZINE Issue No. 222, April 1981
Artist: Mort Drucker Writer: Arnie Kogen
Watching Blow Out for the 100th time for the podcast and caught these two cameos from famous rocker Bruce Springsteen (whom DePalma would later direct a music video for) in Sally’s apartment, and a kinda creepy version of famous robot space-butler C3P0 in the Liberty Bell Parade!
And I believe that’s the Big Man, Clarence Clemons, above The Boss’s shoulder, on that lovely embroidered pillow.
Keep an eye out for these cameos as you get caught up for the next episode! Part 1 of our DePalma deep dive!
In preparation for our next episode, here’s the wonderfully titled MAD MAGAZINE parody of BASIC INSTINCT!
