Their Actual Mouths

Someone has been reading all my "posts" about THE BIG MOUTH. And no, it's not you. It's never you. It's McNeil. He writes: "First of all, do Jerry and his leasing lady EVER kiss? I can't recall. Watch it again! Also a theme between TWIXT and THE BIG MOUTH you mention without actually saying it is their actual mouths! Remember how everyone had trouble talking in THE BIG MOUTH? I'm too tired to type more." Thanks, McNeil! Me too. But in his great monograph, Chris Fujiwara writes about "the failure of understanding, primordial in Lewis's universe." For more on the lack of communication in THE BIG MOUTH, see that essay from which I keep stealing images.
