Joe Bob's Find That Flick
This week's stovetop-stuffer comes from...J.W. Narins of Scarsdale, N.Y.: "I'm looking for a B-movie science-fiction flick which I saw in the late '70s, if memory serves.
"The single salient feature of the film which I still recall is one of the male protagonists, who is possessed of enormous supernatural powers, largely latent. He has a habit of sitting on the bridge of their spaceship and playing with a circle of light, which plays up and down between his palms like an oscilloscope reading, only without the oscilloscope. On this little ship, they travel to a number of planets, one of which is covered with ice. After semi-extensive research, I'm proud to say, I have managed to come up with absolutely nothing."

We Have a Winner! In the Oct. 17 column, Chuck Hush of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., wrote: "I remember seeing on TV once a movie about a travelling bra salesman. The only scene I remember is where a stacked housewife is trying on one of the salesman's sample bras when her husband pulls up and she tells the salesman to beat it, and he says, 'Wait, my sample,' so Mrs. Well-Endowed Suburbia takes off the bra and hands it to him. The look on his face was hilarious! Okay, Joe Bob readers, put on your stuponotronic helmets and tell me the name of this titillating comedy."
We received only one correct answer, so our winner is...Smilin' Jack Daly of Braintree, Mass.: "Sounds to me like What's Up Front?, an early Russ Meyer-like nudie-cutie, with Arch Hall Sr., as the bra-company exec."
