Between Time and Timbuktu (1972)

It did not create infinite copies of him. What it did is bounce him all around the earth in time and space (different places) but there was only one of him. (suggest the contributor actually watch it)

Did I ever tell you my driveway reminds me of Mars?
6 March 2001 | by (schaumburg, Illinois) – See all my reviews

When I was 14, I saw Between And Timbuktu for the first time. I even tape recorded it on my old portable Panasonic cassette player (the one with the blue and white piano-like keys) and used to listen to it over and over again. It made a lasting impression on me that persists to this day. Other than being very entertaining and quite funny, it, (1) introduced me to the works of Kurt Vonnegut, (2) introduced me to Bob & Ray (3) introduced me to a number of diverse actors who I will always first and foremost associate with their roles here including William Hickey, Kevin McCarthy and Susan Sullivan. And even though I have long since lost that tape, and Kurt apparently continues to block any efforts to make this film available (while allowing Slapstick to stink up the ether), it will always have a warm place in my heart.
