Devil Bat taught by Bela

I just don't have the patience to see If this was already posted. I am juggling this blog and three Facebook Pages. Yes, travel to F.B. and check out WHERE CLASSIC FILMS ARE KING, SILENTS ARE GOLDEN and THE GEORGE REEVES APPRECIATION SOCIETY. Cool, you get a really neat half sheet restoration and a plug for my other stuff.

Still Life Gold

You know what excites a Classic Film Connoisseur? Besides watching films you have never seen that turn out to be good, finding a publicity still from a favorite film. Here, Glen Strange as the Frankenstein Monster, taking a break between shooting on ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948). Terrorizing three Universal lovelies. I have no idea who any of these gals are, but love the '48 style of bathing suit. Enjoy kids.

Bela Eternal

One of the all time creepiest performances by Bela Lugosi. Fun film.

Mickey in Color

My favorite cartoons, will always be those made by Warner Brothers. However, there is no denying the artistic pleasures of those wonderful mid to late 30s Mickeys. THE BAND CONCERT and THROUGH THE MIRROR are just plain wonderful to watch. Those two being my favorites. Runners up would be CLOCK CLEANERS, LONESOME GHOSTS and MICKEY'S TRAILER. Here is a nifty poster that was fun to restore.

Bela is Blu

Bela. He never looked better, then in the new Blu-Ray release by Universal. The studio Magicians have down a superb job of visual and audio restoration. My highest recommendation.

To Mars and those Babes!

Gee whiz did I love this flick as a kid! Funny thing thou. Bud and Lou take a detour from Mars and end up on a very "Man-less" Venus instead! You gotta love them Venusian babes. Universal touted that the Venusian women were played by contestants in the Miss Universe competition. Anita Ekberg, the winner of the Miss Sweden competition, was among the ensemble.
Enjoy this just restored three sheet.

Quoth the Raven...........

Great little B-film. The always watchable George Zucco is the main attraction in this film. Of course you recognize the curly haired gentleman to the top right. It's Glenn Strange, the Frankenstein Monster in HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HOUSE OF DRACULA and of course, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

Going Ape?

Odd thing is, the Return of the Ape Man (1944) is NOT a sequel to The Ape Man (1943)! Both films however, are lots of fun.

Boris meets Dick

Newly restored half sheet. A gang of criminals, which includes a piano player and an imposing former convict known as 'Gruesome' (Boris Karloff), has found out about a scientist's secret formula for a gas that temporarily paralyzes anyone who breathes it. When Gruesome accidentally inhales some of the gas and passes out, the police think he is dead and take him to the morgue, where he later revives and escapes. This puzzling incident attracts the interest of Dick Tracy (Ralph Byrd), and when the criminals later use the gas to rob a bank, Tracy realizes that he must devote his entire attention to stopping them. At one point in the film, the Comedy relief states: "If I didn't know better, I'd say we were dealing with Boris Karloff!".
