Peter Cushing SOTM

vlcsnap-2019-01-18-11h08m46s116.jpg

3:15 a.m.  The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973).  Probably a lesser one in the series but I haven’t seen it.

I actually like this movie. it's in the PUBLIC DOMAIN so if you miss it, it's everywhere. it is SO DINGY AND SATURATED AND FILLED WITH GRIM, DEPRESSING SCENES OF ENGLAND IN THE MID-SEVENTIES and LURID LOCATIONS- there are moments where it genuinely looks like a snuff film.

there is also nudity and Satanic Mass and JOANNA LUMLEY in the EXACT SORT OF PART PATSY STONE WOULD HAVE DONE had she been a real person.

5:45 a.m. 28th.   Lost In Yonkers (1993).  I still haven’t caught up with this one.  With Richard Dreyfuss and Mercedes Ruehl.

4 a.m.  29th.  All the King’s Men (1949).  Based on populist Huey Long.  Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge won Oscars.  John Ireland is pretty good in it too.

My pick for tomorrow is The Candidate (1972) with Robert Redford.  This film is a very prescient, especially today.  I absolutely despise politics and usually stay away from a politically-oriented film.  I will watch a political film if it's presented in a historical context like All the President's Men or a fictionalized account of something within the political realm and there isn't some sort of agenda behind it.  Anyway, in this film, Robert Redford plays a young lawyer who is asked to run on the Democratic ticket for a California senate seat within the US Senate.  The incumbent, the wildly popular  Crocker Jarmon (Don Porter) is assumed to  be a shoo-in for the win.  His win is so assured as a matter of fact,  that no viable Democratic candidates are  willing to risk the embarrassment of losing to Jarmon, nor do they want to invest energy into what they feel will be a futile campaign.  An election specialist, played by Peter Boyle, asks Redford if he'd be willing to run on the Democratic ticket.  He doesn't need to worry about winning, and he can use the campaign as a means to speak out about his pet causes.  Redford agrees, but soon finds himself embroiled in the political campaign machine.

bustillo_oro_dos_monjes_1934_02.jpg

2:15 a.m.  Dos Monjes (1934) or Two Monks.  This Mexican film looks quite interesting and probably the highlight of the month for me.

AND THIS IS PETER CUSHING LATER IN HIS CAREER:

See the source image

I FOR ONE THINK THE RESEMBLANCE IS STRIKING.

I don't see the resemblance, but then---

Back in the late '70's MY NICKNAME at the plant was "Q-Tip", and I didn't get the resemblance there either.  ;)

I'm really, really excited to see THE WICKER MAN (1973) on the 10/31 early am  schedule, although they have the year of release as 1974.

I only recently saw this for the first time and have since seen it 3 or 4 more times and I LOVE IT.

Y'know, not ever having seen that movie until years later, I recall there was a store in the next city over that specialized and sold RATTAN furniture that was named THE WICKER MAN.  :D   I didn't get why some thought the name was funny until finally seeing the movie.  ;)

Tonight's Silent Sunday Nights movie is Behind the Door, with a young Wallace Beery, overnight at 12:15 AM.

No mention whether the door is green.
