Quotes: Red Right Hand

On a gathering storm
Comes a tall handsome man

In a dusty black coat
With a red right hand.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, "Red Right Hand"

...Nature never errs.
To those who know the workings of your mind
Your face and figure, sir, suggest a book
Appropriately bound.
Cyril, Princess Ida

You may be friendly looking on the outside,
But I know why you only wear long sleeves
And I know why you shake with the wrong hand
Don't try to hide it, cause I do believe that
You're out to get me,
Gonna scratch out my eyes
With that atomic copper claw!
Lemon Demon, "Atomic Copper Claw"

Mr. Trevanian has a nice gift for bizarre characters. The chief of Search and Sanction is an albino who lives in darkness; he must also undergo periodic changes of blood because he is "one of nature's rarest genealogical phenomena"... It seems only yesterday that Sidney Greenstreet was growing orchards in a most sinister greenhouse and chuckling mirthlessly. Actually, that was thirty years ago and writers are now having a difficult time thinking up unlikely traits...

"I am enjoying the work of the new Dick Tracy artists! The previous regime, of course, focused on a series of villains who were hideously deformed; the new guys are branching out to people who also emit some kind of horrible odor as well."

"By the way, I don’t know if the film is parodying the whole “deformed villains” schtick, but really? A third nipple? I know that most Bond villains have a physical abnormality to reflect their twisted souls, but this really seems a bit ridiculous. From what I remember, the third nipple was not a plot point in the book, so it’s obviously something added to the film — which makes it a rather odd addition, to be honest."

"In addition to the Starfleet personnel, there are also a few guys here who just scream out 'Guest Alien Villains of the Week'. They're gray-faced, with sinister looking hoods, and faces that look like the result of too many Botox injections. Darth Maul was less obviously a villain than these guys."
