Merry Freakin' X-mas

To anyone that might actually be reading this Blog. I hope that 2008 is less stressful in the romance department. Do yourselves a BIG favor, stay off of any, I repeat, ANY website that even hints they will find you that Magical "one".

If it were not for my hobbies and friends and food and drink and my continuing love of things past, what ever would I do? So from all of me to all of you, Happy (PLEASE FILL IN THE BLANK WITH WHATEVER GREETING MAKES YOU FEEL WARM AND CUDDLY) to all.

You won't find any truth in advertising here! This is a Grade Z production from Spain. No, it does NOT have either Boris Karloff or Lon Chaney Jr. anywhere in the film! Why someone at Universal did not sue the producers of this Little Gem, is beyond me. Maybe Universal did not have any lawyers who cared about such things in 1972.
If stealing a couple of Horror Icons images for their poster was not bad enough, get a load of the Hype from the Pressbook: Yesterday they were COLD & DEAD - TODAY - they're HOT & BOTHERED!

If you like/love Buster Keaton, do yourself a favor and buy the Buster Keaton 65th Anniversary DVD Collection. It features all 10 of Busters sound shorts that he made for Columbia Pictures. There are quite a few jems in the bunch. The transfers are exquisite. I bought mine for $17.00. Not bad for almost 3 hours of comedy fun! The package also has a small repro of an actual Keaton script. Support classic film releases. Buy this, and maybe Columbia will release the Charley Chase series!

Those Wonderful Days of Exploitation!

In response to the huge popularity of CONFIDENTIAL magazine, Crown International pictures released this little Gem. If you get a chance to see it, do so. Lots of fun.
That is the 11X14 Lobby Title Card.

50 Years on this 3rd Rock From The Sun!

Hi Kids. It will Happen at precisely 2:20 am on Sunday Morning. I will turn......50. My Mad Moments of Youth are but a Memory.
So I have No choice but to Make, NEW AND IMPROVED, Mad Moments of Youth! At least as Youthful Mad Moments as my aged Memory and Body will allow me. Every time I even consider jumping on the "Gee, I'm Old" Pity Pot,I remember a dear friend who even at 90, looked upon each day with renewed vim and vigor. My very much missed pal/pop, Bob Shayne.
I feel exactly the same about The Ever Sweet Noel Neill (Of course she is ever sweet. She has a secret Chocolate Stash!). Who continues to be an inspiration with her wonderful sense of humor, elegant style and most of all huggable genuineness (Is that a word?). Anywho, to my fellow friends of the Geritol Set, Onward and Upward .
