THE FLYING SERPENT

(1946)

    

 

 

Of all the horror films cranked out by the poverty row studios in the 1940s, those made by PRC (Producers Releasing Corporation) were the most outrageous.

 

The Flying Serpent is a case in point.

 

Actor George Zucco, who was always entertaining as the villain in these films, plays a mad archaeologist who discovers a hidden Aztec treasure and living archaeopteryx.

• 80th Anniversay Celebration •

THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

(1935) 

    

 

 

Perhaps the greatest example of a sequel surpassing its original, this follow-up to 1931’s Frankenstein is sheer brilliance.

 

It features some of the most memorable scenes in cinema history, notably the monster's encounter with a lonely hermit and the introduction of 'The Bride'.

 

The Bride of Frankenstein is regarded as the high point of the Universal Studios horror films and stands as a testament to the genius of director James Whale.

THE FLY (1958)

Also:  Another thrilling episode of Flash Gordon (1936).

    

 

 

OLD TOWN MUSIC HAUNT continues....

 

It's been said again and again that this is one great horror film.

 

But it is more than that.  It’s ”The Fly!” -- perhaps the greatest! 

 

You must see this film to truly experience the early days of horror, when classics like this would exhibit a freshness and a palpable terror that remakes cannot capture. 

 

View at your own risk!

(1931)

NOVEMBER 6 - 7 - 8

Gene Tierney • Rex Harrison • George Sanders

THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR

(1947) 

    

 

This rarely seen film is one of the most haunting and cinematic romances ever filmed - ghost and all.

 

Gene Tierney is perfect in her role as Lucy, a young widow. This is a very special movie one doesn't easily forget, and so well done - including a remarkable score by the venerable Bernard Herrmann.

 

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is pure artistry on film.

Clark Gable • Jeanette MacDonald • Spencer Tracy

SAN FRANCISCO

(1936) 

    

 

Alongside Gone With the Wind, MGM's San Francisco is the finest romantic drama to emerge from Hollywood in the 1930s.

 

It has everything going for it: a magnificent story and script, a superb star in Clark Gable, the superb voice of Jeanette MacDonald, and an earthquake sequence that you’ll never forget.

80th Anniversary Celebration of

W. C. Fields in
THE MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE

(1935) 

    

 

A rarely seen comedy gem!

 

W. C. Fields portrays a hen-pecked milquetoast who keeps a cork in his water bottle and is able to be nicer to his wife because he is slightly hammered during her nagging fests.

 

But the ending is a happy one with certain signs of romantic progress.

 

Like most W. C. Fields comedies, this film is consistently hilarious.

(1944) 

    

 

This Academy Award® Best Picture winner of 1944 is one of the all-time great movies.

BABES IN TOYLAND

(1934 - aka: March of the Wooden Soldiers)

    

 

 

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are endearing in this musical fairy tale based on Victor Herbert's 1903 operetta. 

 

They portray two workers in a toy factory who need to help their landlady - the old lady who lives in a shoe.
