I watched the 1969 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie “The Maltese Bippy” on my DVD. This was the first time I’d seen it since I was eleven. I was on vacation in Tampa with my parents and we decided to walk to a theater near our hotel. My parents watched another movie while I chose this Rowan and Martin romp. I used to watch Laugh-In in my bedroom. I don’t think my parents would have approved but they never said anything.
