random notes

A.K.A. Phyllis Smith

     From: Patrick Neve (
She was Tom Wilson's secretary and the monster victim (and film editor) in Uncle Meat.  Right after Tom Wilson's name in the Freak Out list of "material contributors" is: FYLLIS.  Biffy The Elephant Shrew thinks this is Phyllis Altenhaus.  She is supposedly Mike Keneally's favorite actress.

Where the heck is she now?
