BW-81 mins, TV-G,



The entire day just totally rocks the house!!!! You can't go wrong, and my DVR will be humming 24/7 this Thursday!!!


My next groove will be Saturday morning with THE BLACK CAT (1934) with Boris and Bela, their best team-up IMO!!! Then two series kick off, making Saturday mornings continue on with their totally groove status: THE WHISTLER (1944) first in the series, most of them starring Richard Dix, but always a different character, this is a truly chilling mystery series, one that always unnerves me a bit, and I'm looking forward to watching these again! Then JUNGLE JIM (1948) with my man Johnny Weissmuller, kicks it off with his series at noon, rock out!


Sunday night is grooving with the "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" theme, with HANDS OF A STRANGER (1962), THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS (1946), MAD LOVE (1935), and the silent THE HANDS OF ORLAC (1925) with Conrad Veidt!! Wild!!


Once again, thanks TCM, for providing all this totally groovy entertainment!

Mark-o, BABY!! I knew Warren William would draw you out! Warren's day is the one I've been waiting for. What a treat. A few in there I haven't seen, which is cool - looking forward to all of them. In the meantime, I will do the Mark-o Groove Dance in anticipation of WW on Thursday! Glad to see you, pal!:)
