ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I bet they would, too.
Speaking of Rasputin and lawsuits, the “all persons fictitious” disclaimer now seen in all movie credits started because of a lawsuit regarding the film Rasputin and the Empress (1932): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_persons_fictitious_disclaimer
Defense: “Disney asks that the plaintiff produce at least one portrait of Rasputin that is not creepy.”
Plaintiff: “I… uh… well….”
Judge: “Case dismissed.”
wait a moment…
wasn’t Walt actually Rasputin incarnate?
(or am i confusing Robot Chicken with reality again?)
Would certainly help explain the shared love of litigation, I guess.
So the fam were OK with Boney M?
