RICH'S TOR JOHNSON (AND OTHER Z-MOVIE STARS) THREAD


Recommended Posts

Perhaps if Tor is star of the month, or maybe even as a Sunday night foreign film, TCM will show Volker Schlondorff's 1996 Young Torless?

 

Tor for SOTM!!! That is such a stunningly good idea I'm thinking I may boycott the boards until it happens. Or maybe just start (launch? Create?) a thread titled, "Will Tor Johnson be SOTM for (excuse me, TOR) December?" I mean we haven't seen George Sanders yet, and that thread is kind of stale anyway. (no surprise).

I wish I could take credit for it but I am just following someone else's lead.

Don't have much to contribute outside of the fact that I also see some Ray Milland in young Tor.

 

Man, can you imagine TOR in THE LOST WEEKEND?! The story of a gigantic, hopeless alcoholic who is always on the search for enough booze to maintain a buzz longer than 2 minutes.

 

In the last scene of the movie, he enters the factory where they manufacture Wild Turkey and throws himself headfirst into one of the tanks.

LornaHansonForbes--Maybe TCM will show High Tor (1956) (& yes there IS such a film),a musical where the ghost of a 16th century Dutch girl tries to save TOR's mountain--there might be a lost sequel about keeping TOR in the title condition.

Are you referring to the one with Bing Crosby?  The imdb lists Julie Andrews as being in it.  1956.  My word.

I just got notified that Bride of the Monster is on its way to me from Classicflix.  (For those not in the know, Classicflix is the classic movie equivalent of Netflix.)  Can't wait to broaden my cinematic horizons here - my first Tor movie!  Oh, the excitement.  The momentum.  ;)

I hope you enjoy the octopus with some of its tentacles missing.

Great idea! Tor Johnson was one awesomely huge star!

I'm sure there were other desert movies (or Bronson Canyon) where he was an uncredited acTOR.

Well, he actually started filming PATTOR in the mid 60s, but between his diva temperament, and the heat sand and scorpions of the desert, production shut down. It was later.started.with another.actor.

Yes, a distant relative, from what I understand ... Tor C. Scott
