Sun Channel? Is that like the Earth Channel but hotter? Is there a Moon Channel?

I'm reminded of the Tony Curtis line: "Yonder lies the castle of my fad-dah." I think he was wearing a wristwatch when he said it.

Prince Valient?

The film is famous for an apocryphal line, rendered as "Yonder stands da castle of my fodda" or similar. The plot details above show that this would not fit the story: there is no "castle of my father". This chestnut used to be quoted in Radio Times whenever the film was on BBC television, and found its way into a 2007 study of Tony Curtis's work by Clive James. It clearly derives from American snobbery about Curtis's origins, and has crossed the Atlantic unchecked by film writers actually viewing the movie.[citation needed] Curtis has denied ever saying that line, but he did actually say a similar line in the movie Son of Ali Baba, released in 1952, that reads, "This is the palace of my father, and yonder lies the Valley of the Sun."
