The Kid Is Hot Tonight

A while back, I wrote about Wim Wenders' wonderful 1984 movie Paris, Texas, starring Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell and the eight-year-old Hunter Carson. This was not, as I learned this morning, young Hunter's first major appearance on the national stage: When he was a mere nine months old, his mother, Karen Black, took her voluptuous horror to the hosting duties of NBC's Saturday Night (as it was known at the time). During the monologue, Hunter crawled around in his mother's arms the entire time, even attempting (unsucessfully) to breast-feed.

By the way, I just updated Hunter Carson's Wikipedia page with this information. So don't bother.
