I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but Captain Emmet appears to have a very rockin’ SPACE GUN COLLECTION in his Chemosphere pad.
It’s only visible in one shot – when the real Henderson enters Emmet’s. It’s not visible when the clone does the same thing, earlier. Henderson (the real one) slumps in a chair that’s right below the frame holding the guns, but we don’t see them in that shot, either, since Gerd Oswald shot Emmet’s interior as an A-B-C arc without reverse angles.
The more astute among you may have already noticed that “The Duplicate Man” takes place this year – 2011. Or that both Henderson and his clone are wearing Qarlo’s futuristic wristwatch from “Soldier.”
But can anybody ID the guns? The bottom one is too large to be the “laser pistol” from “The Bellero Shield,” and the top one sure looks like a blaster from Forbidden Planet. Maybe. Possibly.
And if this is the world of 2011 … I WANT MY MEGASOID.
And if you wish to see how much more ridiculous Mr. Gasoid became on Bewitched and Lost in Space … go here.
