  1. > {quote:title=markbeckuaf wrote:}{quote}I grooved hardest this week to: > > BURN WITCH BURN (1962) a nightmarish horror flick that really rocked!! That's a great one for the women, because the two main women in the film are controlling the lives/destiny of the men around them, one for good purposes and the protection against evil, and the other for evil purposes and the ruin of the good. ]
  2. > {quote:title=skimpole wrote:}{quote} > The two least favorite movies I've seen this year are Inherit the Wind and The Help but if they had received no critical buzz I would not likely see them at all. Wow, you really didn't like *Inherit The Wind* ?? I just watched that on DVD last week again...I really like it as a great courtroom drama (it was based on a popular Broadway play, you know). What I find surprising is that the movie didn't get a couple of additional Oscar nominations, such as Fredric March for Best Supporting Actor, Best Director for Stanley Kramer, and Best Picture.
  3. > {quote:title=phroso wrote:}{quote}I think the exact title is *THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED-UP ZOMBIES.* It was featured on MST3K, where that show's heckling silhouettes also couldn't believe that there was a musical number entitled "Shick out of Shape." The song is actually titled "Shook Out Of Shape". There's also a number called "The Zombie Stomp".

Technically amazing, but overall the story is nothing new at all (let's mess with the primitive aliens...done so many times on Star Trek) and I think its popularity is vastly OVERRATED. I have watched it once and have no idea if I'll ever watch it again, because it simply
  6. > {quote:title=doctom666 wrote:}{quote} anything by ED WOOD that are obviously bad. Precisely what I enjoy about Ed's films...the fact they are low-budget and cheap. I personally find most of his films very entertaining. It's been said that Eddie had a true love of moviemaking, and he did have talent....his only drawback was being hampered by having NO budget on any of his films.

  8. > {quote:title=princessananka wrote:}{quote}In the first one, Glenda Farrell waltzs into the police department and she goes up to one cop buddy and says: "How's your sex life?" If that were a post-production code movie, they likely would never have gotten away with that line.
  9. The most terrorized dog in history: Courage The Cowardly Dog.
  10. > {quote:title=TomJH wrote:}{quote} > Years ago (I can't recall the source) I read or heard that when they shot the airport scene for the ending of Casablanca that the plane seen in the background here is actually a very small one because of the limitations of the size of the Warners set on which it was shot. Those people that you see at the plane are actually midgets. Same here...I also read that factoid years ago.
  11. Shadows... There's a lot of them seen in his horror films. Great stuff.
  12. > {quote:title=princessananka wrote:}{quote}CASABLANCA is the main masterpiece I've enjoyed countless times but as a horror fan, his two Technicolor efforts, MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM and DR. X, really made me appreciate his brilliant work. This man could do ANYTHING! I agree...I hadn't realize how many of his films I've seen until I read through this thread. I have to say his horror films in the 30's are definitely underlooked and uderrated in favor of his later, more well-known films like *Casablanca* and *Yankee Doodle Dandy* . What I really like in the three horror films described here
  13. > {quote:title=Daisysmama wrote:}{quote} > > SonOfUniversalHorror, That's so sad that the poor dog was killed but I really enjoyed the photos and the story, thank you! > Glad you enjoyed it. It must have been a sad day not only for Lon in particular but for many at the studio when Moose died. I just replaced the Mummy photo below with a larger and better one. You can more clearly see Moose licking Lon's "mummified" face".
  14. Lon Chaney Jr. and his German shepherd pal, Moose. Moose was a studio dog who wandered onto the set of one of Lon's films, and he and Lon became fast friends. Moose plays the wolf who bites Lon in *The Wolf Man* .No matter what makeup Lon was wearing, Moose always recognized him (I love the shot of Moose licking Lon's face in the Mummy makeup). Sadly, in 1944 during the filming of Cobra Woman (which Lon costarred in), Moose was run down by a truck. A sad day for all. I've always loved these loving shots of Lon and Moose.
