Royalty Cheques Don’t Die



Suzy Mandel thought it would be fun to share two of her more recent royalty cheques here, which given there amounts are more worth keeping as memorabilia than bothering to cash. The lower amount of the two is for a repeat screening of The Love Boat, while the larger one is for a TV screening of Cheech and Chong's Things Are Tough All Over (1982). Peculiarly, while Suzy is quite visible in The Love Boat episode I've never been able to spot her in the Cheech and Chong movie, and I am usually quite good at spotting her in these things. It may be that she got cut from the film or that the scene she is in is unique to the TV version (I've only got the film on DVD) but needless to say if anyone does manage to spot her in this $1.78 repeat worthy appearance, please let us know.

Hi Gav,

Reminds me of a story my friend Sue Upton told me. She received a royalty check for sales of "The Benny Hill Show" in Swaziland, for the sum of 6 pounds 51 pence. To which I replied, "I hope you didn't spend it all in one place."
