Of course... Thanks.  I think I ran across that when I was looking at Cab Calloway. Cool to see it again.  :)

Very welcome.  Thanks for the memory jog.  I almost didn't get it because I thought that Stormy Weather was in color, but of course it wasn't.

I haven't seen Stormy Weather yet though I have it in my collection.  I love the song.  Jeff Lynne and George Harrison did a nice cover version of it.  Lynne and his songs about weather. lol

Tonight: "Creature From The Black Lagoon" on Svengoolie. Which is on MeTV which is on many cable companies and also on many free antenna stations. I really liked this movie.

I recall 7/11s (?) gave away free cardboard red/green 3D glasses when it was reshown on tv in the early 80's (I think?) Even without the 3-D it is a good movie. I wonder if I could find red/green glass if the effect would still work or if that was a special broadcast? Or if new non-tube tvs it wouldn't work? I know the newer 3D glasses and 3D tv mode doesn't seem to work that great and when you aren't wearing the glasses the image is sorta blurred (but that is newer tech.) The 3D in theaters works well (using another technique- not red/blue deal- now, though I generally don't like it because so much CGI also it is too overwhelming and both seem to be resulting in less plot or acting and more on just 'effects.'
ps: I recall we switched out red and green swim goggles to try to get 3D as a kid. Ummm, we already see in 3D in real life! HA.

I remember that too. I've always been a fan of 3D movies. Fuck everyone else. What do they know anyway?  ;)

Great creature classic.  I usually tune in when Sven shows it.  I'm hoping he gets around to showing "Curse of the Undead" again.  One of my favorites.
I'm watching "Soylent Green" on CometTV at the moment.  What did Jorch call Heston this week?  Charleston Hest or something equally stupid?  ::)

Yep and also some butchering of 'Kolchak' actor Darren McGavin- "Derrick Macgavern" or "Darren Mcgovern" or something. He also cut out open-lines and replayed his lame "Morgus" appearance in studio to cut Friday night short. So lame. Alas, I don't get CometTV on my satellite but do get MeTV and several others, so I'm good.
But after this ball game it will be "Creature From The Black Lagoon."

I've got a 3D tv and the 3D version of the film.  Have yet to watch it.  Always forget to charge my 3D glasses. :-\ Also have 3D of Dial M For Murder and House of Wax

Curse of The Undead with Eric Fleming and Michael Pate.  Great film. Keep on waiting for that to show up on DVD or Blu-ray.  I'd also like to get those cheesy films, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein and Billy the Kid Vs. Dracula.

Heads up, Barnes and Noble is having their July Criterion sale.  Every film is 50% off.  Blu-rays are thus $17.99 and DVD's $14.99.  They also run the sale every November.  Got some goodies today like The Lodger, The Blob, The Asphalt Jungle ,Straw Dogs and some others.  The Lodger video has an extra silent Hitchcock on it called  Downhill aka When Boys Leave Home.

Cool! I love the Criterion Collection releases.  8)

The Twilight Time blu-ray label has some nice 50's 3D noir films and The Mad Magician.  Waiting 'til they go on sale though as as the price tag is a bit steep.

I'd like to see a decent print of Hitchcock's first sound film, Blackmail as well as prints of Murder and the Secret Agent.  I've always wanted to see Secret Agent as it starred John Gielgud when he was actually fairly young.  He was fairly old even by the time of the 1950's Julius Caesar with Brando.

Yeah, I also bought some foreign films from Bunuel and Fellini.  I have yet to understand Fellini though I've really only watched 2 films of his, La Dolce Vita and Satyricon as well as his segment in Spirits of the Dead with Terence Stamp.  Got an early film of his called I, Vitteloni and also Juliet of The Spirits.

I really love the dark atmosphere of "Curse of the Undead.  Perfect for the Halloween season.  Pate is great as the cowboy vamp.  Sven needs to show it again so I can DVR it.

CometTV has been spreading across the land, so keep an eye open for it.  A really great mix of old-timey sci-fi and horror schlock.  Yesterday, they also had "X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes," one of Ray Milland's horror/ sci-fi flicks.  But that "Charleston Hest"
is the best.  ;D

I notices they had Being There on sale. I might pick that up.

Yeah, I bought Being There at Costco a few months ago.  They get some Criterions every now and then and sale them at $19.99.  I don't even consider getting it if they are over $20 unless it is a rarity or something special.  I'll spend a little more on that especially for old silents that are supposed to be good but have slipped through the cracks.  Doing my little part to preserve films.

Shout Factory has just restored and remastered the Pink Panther series of films with Sellers. They are selling them as a set.  This will be the first time all of the Sellers movies are in one set.
