    This is Jack Burton in the Rickshaw Express, and I’m talking to anyone that’s listening out there. When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: “Have ya paid your dues, Jack?”

    “Yes sir, the check is in the mail.”

    This was taken for a Tiger Beat magazine, “Monkee Spectacular,” (February 1968) which covered the Monkees extensively. Having time off, Davy wandered to adjacent Disney studio lot and encountered Kurt, who was filming one of two Disney films from the era. One of these films was the “One And Only Genuine Original Family Band” film, where he met future wife Goldie Hawn.

    Some of the photos from this series are in color and better focus. Reportedly, in 1966, the last thing Walt Disney wrote on an office note were the words: “Kurt Russell.”

    Now *this* is why I joined this sub. Not to see people’s moms and dads from 50 years ago or whatever. (Sorry, no offense. They are beautiful people, I’m sure.)

    Thanks for posting!

    Supposedly, though he didn’t always get along with his Monkee cohorts, Davy was generally considered to be the nicest of the four, especially when it came to dealing with fans of the group.


    Not sure what kind of reputation Russell has when it comes to dealing with his fans…..
