March Madness & Movie Mayhem (Day 12!)

Double Agent 73

I guess this is Day 12–did I post anything for yesterday (or Saturday? Better check that out…)

Anyhoo, here’s a look at the main reason why I’m even DOING this type of thing, one Doris Wishman. Her movies aren’t just movies…they’re experiences. Take a good look at Deadly Weapons or Double Agent 73, her double feature starring actress Chesty Morgan. They have to be seen to be believed, and you WILL NOT get the soundtracks out of your head. Seriously, I can run through the soundtracks of both films in my head, beat for beat!

How does this relate to Six Degrees of Stoogeration? Come on–there’s got to be a link somewhere! Anyhoo redux, take a look around the site, it’s got plenty of great info, not just about Ms. Wishman, but much, much more!

 

The B-Movie Scare-A-Thon 2015!

Today’s not only the birthday of THIS GUY:

This is a "Winning" album!
This is a “Winning” album!

But it’s also the 3rd annual B-Movie Scare-A-Thon!  I started it when I was in my first go-round of being between engagements, and seeing as I’m currently between engagements, why not keep it going? (I’ve been unemployed for THREE Halloweens in a row…is someone trying to tell me something?)

Because I always love making up signs, etc., I made up a little something via Canva to celebrate the season:

B Movie Scareathon 2

This year’s lineup includes The Three Stooges (of course!), MST3K’s The Creeping Terror, The Beast of Yucca Flats, Track of the Moon Beast, and The Horrors of Spider Island. Then I decided to go un-MST3K to Larry Buchanan’s It’s Alive! (which almost put me to sleep!)

I need to figure out what the last two movies should be–I think I’ll go Rifftrax or Cinematic Titanic with these.  Let’s see, I could pick The House on Haunted Hill, Kiss of the Tarantula, Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks, (slightly angry sigh) ONIONS…well, there are lots of movies to choose from…

(MST3K fans will get that joke!)
