.....................BOO 4 You!

Here is the one sheet to my All Time Favorite Horror Film! I will never forget the first time I saw this great Hammer Classic. It was in a drive-in. Most likely one of the numeroues re-issues. In the front seat, me chewing on popcorn, soda and candy. My eyes glued straight ahead in horrorific excitement. In the backseat, the cooing of my sister with her latest boyfriend.
Christopher Lee is second only to good ol Bela in the King of the Undead department.

.......BOO Three!

WOW! Finding a Lobby Card to a Bela I have never even heard of before! Come on Columbia, release this one on DVD!

.............BOO Too!

Look at this Fantastic Lobby Title Card from the first of the Universal Dracula Sequels! Made in 1936, this is as good a looking Movie Collectable as they Come!
Now if we could just figure out what that "Weird" feeling is all about!

Laurel & Hardy Reminder

"Ahhhhhhhhh, November. A time for turkey, stuffing and other Sappy stuff, guaranteed to make you laugh! Yep, a feature and a short that highlight the weird and wonderously wacky endings that came from the mind of Stanley and the other Hal Roach comedy writers! We will see the delightful (and seldom seen) feature film, BOHEMIAN GIRL (1936). A band of Gypsies are camped outside the walls of Count Arnheim's palace. Oliver's wife (Mae Busch) kidnaps the Count's daughter Arline, then leaves the child and runs off with her lover, Devilshoof. Not knowing her true identity, Oliver, with the help of "Uncle" Stanley, raises the girl as his own! Many misadventures and a hilarious ending await. Oh yeah, James Finlayson is thrown into the fun as well!
Our short film features Stan and Babe as chimney sweeps that are hired by a wacky scientist! The ending of this one will make you go "ape" as we present DIRTY WORK (1933). Our guest comedian(s) is a twosome of frentic fun Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis! A Sappy first. This is a speically edited version of the Colgate Comedy Hour. Except this will be around 20 minutes! A hilarious skit and a wacky improv of M&L doing their Nightclub Act! you will not want to miss this. And, if that were not enough, a fun-tastic Tom & Jerry cartoon in brilliant Technicolor will be seen! We will all have a happy ending if you join us on Nov. 8th!"

Collectable and Eternally Fun to Watch!

If Edward Wood Jr. only knew! Imagine if Ed had lived just a few years longer. He would have seen his films become cult classics! With the publication of the book, THE 50 WORST FILMS OF ALL TIME, Cinema Oddities once ignored, or discussed with disdain were suddenly hot properties! And even thou the writers missed the mark on close to a third of the films listed in their tome, it brought Ed Wood to the attention of legions of film fan's eyes.

Believe it or not kiddies, if you happen to have a one sheet (pictured here) of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959), you would be $1,500.00 to $3,000.00 richer! Yep, the poster relegated to the bargain bin at most poster shops in Hollywood was by 1978, paper gold!

Bela + Color = Halloween!

Hope you all have a great Halloween. I highly suggest you go trick or treating with your kids this year. Put on a mask and grab a pillowcase. We could all use some free candy! Heck, the way the world is going, maybe candy will be the only meal we will have for a while.

Bela Armand Tesla

In 1918, an English family are terrorized by a Vampire, until they learn how to deal with it. They think their troubles are over, but German bombs in WWII free the monster. He reclaims the soul of his wolfman ex-servant, and assuming the identity of a scientist who has just escaped from a concentration camp, he starts out on a plan to get revenge upon the family. Cool flick with Bela at his best! Do not miss RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE (1944).

Look at this amazing 6 sheet! It is interesting that this particuler poster concentrates on the Wolfman! Most other paper on this title, focus on Bela the Vampire.
