    Question Question: Ashtray From Creepshow

    Ok, I looked around to see if this had been posted, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

    This question needs a lengthy set-up. Here goes...

    I'm sure you all have noticed that the ashtray that Aunt Bedeilia uses to bash in her fathers head in the segment 'Fathers Day' keeps on appearing throughout the film.

    Other than Fathers Day, the ashtray appears in Something to Tide You Over (on the bedside table in Richards beach house), The Crate (in Henry's study), and They're Creeping Up On You (can't recall exactly where right now, but I know I have seen it).

    Anyway, does anyone here know where the ashtray can be found in The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill? I am sure it there somewhere in Jordy's house mixed in with all that clutter, but so far I have been unable to find it. Also, is it featured in the prologue/epilogue?

    Thanks in advance - and remember, bashing noobs makes you their slave in the afterlife.

    When Jordy is fantisizing about selling the meteor, watch when the professor in the "Department Of Meteors" opens his metal cash box. The ashtray is behind the box in the lower righthand side of the tv screen.

    yes, the ashtray was a nice touch throughout the stories. King's idea?

    In the last story about the bugs "They're Creeping Up On You" the ashtray is actually a soapdish in Mr.Pratt's bathroom in an early scene he is washing his hands.

    Does anyone know if you can purchase a replica of this astray anywhere?

    They talk about the ashtray on the commentary track of the 2-disc special edition with Romero and Savini. I don't remember if even the makers were able to spot them all, I recall they even forgot themselves sometimes where they put it - would have to listen again to be sure. But there's a lot of discussion about it.
