March Movie Madness & Mayhem (Day 15?)–Cult of the Damned (1969) – Journeys in Classic Film

Apparently, I’ve lost ANOTHER day somewhere (Day 15 is missing, just like Bunny Lake!) So, without further ado, here’s what SHOULD’VE been featured…Angel, Angel Down We Go (aka Cult of the Damned). You’ve got Jennifer Jones, Roddy McDowall, Lou Rawls, Holly Near, and most importantly, Joe Besser in a cameo as a tour bus driver.

How’d I almost forget about THIS?!

No nerd worth their salt should ever forget that today, June 3, 1969, that the last Star Trek episode, “Turnabout Intruder” was aired. If you’d like to see William Shatner at his Shattnerist (on Star Trek, at least!) see this episode.

Think of it–in 1969, the Three Stooges were still touring, the moon landing was little more than a month away, and a couple of months later, a certain Family would be on everyone’s minds.  Interesting time, when you look back on it as history.  As everyday living, I imagine that it was pretty much like today.
