"A month later Butcher Boy is released at Loew’s American down on Eighth Avenue. I don’t tell anyone, but I’m personally far from sure that I’ll do in the movies. So I buy a ticket, go in alone, and get an aisle seat.
Comes that scene; the sack is in the air; I stand half up in my excitement and suddenly - pow! - I - that’s me myself, not me on the screen - I’m flat on my neck in the theatre aisle. Now hear this: I got up and sat down in my seat again, honestly, without realizing what had happened. Then I heard Arbuckle laugh. That bastard had slipped in the theatre and sat down behind me. He waited for that scene. At the very second that sack landed on the screen, he bopped me in the back of the neck. I was bruised a bit because I wasn’t set for the fall, but it did one thing: it pounded it into my head that I would do in pix.”

Originally made popular by Frankie Vallie in 1967, this tune has been covered by just about everyone. Gloria Gaynor, best known for songs like “I Will Survive”, does a high-octane re-released extended version of this classic tune with a pounding dance beat. (Her original version was recorded in 1977.) The video consists of a variety of fun and sexy Gay nude dancers.
