That Great Comedy Team of Halvan and Helan!

A Really cool Swedish one sheet to the Foreign release of the 1931 Laurel & Hardy film BE BIG. It is pretty accurate, except I don't remember any doggie as part of this short.

Spooky Bela

Here is a rare publicity pic of Bela from the M.G.M. Horror Great, MARK OF THE VAMPIRE (1935). I added a little color so that you could copy and use it as a really spooky wallpaper.

the BLOB is coming!....

... and It started Steve McQueens career!
"Beware of the Blob! It creeps, and leaps, and glides and slides across the floor".... Juat some of the great words from the Blob main theme. 1958 was a great year to take your best gal and have her cringe in make-believe fear in your manly arms as the Blob devoured one hapless victim after another on the big screen. And there was Steve McQueen in all his stoic glory remaining calm as another of those hollywood teens (That were obviously in their early 30s) gathered together the townfolk to vanquish this outer space beasty. Check out the Criterian DVD of this terrific funfest.

Oh My!

And why can't a "Gay" couple be allowed to Marry? Let them be as Miserable as "Straight" couples! Congrats to Mr. Takai and his Partner.

No one has seen it

Just one of the many films made exclusively for Black Audiences during the 40s. Featuring the always hilarious comedians of the day. See the later CHARLIE CHAN films and watch Mantan steal every scene he is in. Will these films ever surface on DVD? Only time will tell.
