I KNOW I just two days ago did the picture thing, but who wants to see another post about me whining that I can’t think of a post to write? As I was looking at Facebook, trying to think of SOMETHING to write about, on my On This Day, I saw this and said, “Cool!”
This is Man Bait from 1952. I have never seen it, but I love the poster. The funny thing (to me, anyways) is that I found it on the Facebook page Classic Film Freak. I do not feel this looks like a classic. It looks more like one of those B or C (for cheesy) movies I love. No matter. It is an awesome poster and I wanted to put it in a blog post. Naturally I did not want to put just one picture in my blog post.
Returning to Classic Film Freak, the first thing to meet my eye was a poster with one of my all-time favorites: Boris Karloff! Yay!
I never saw this one either. It is from 1936. I wonder if TCM will play it sometime. I’ll have to watch for it.
I thought Buccaneer’s Girl from 1950 tied in with Boris Karloff, because it starred Yvonne DeCarlo, loved by many as Lily Munster. I see now that the film is even more closely related, as it features Elsa Lanchester, title character in The Bride of Frankenstein. Another movie for me to seek out, I think (Buccaneer’s Girl, I mean. I have The Bride of Frankenstein on DVD, of course).
It is funny that I am suddenly seeing movies I want to catch. I recently read a blog post decrying the loss of video stores and telling Netflix a thing of two. I am not on Netflix nor have I any idea of how to stream anything. It was Ben’s Bitter Blog, one of my favorites. It lets me tap into my bitterness, which I usually try to keep out of my blog (you know, because of that “totally fun” line in the subtitle). I guess I am actually a little bitter now that I did not make a better blog post. Then again, this is Wuss-out Wednesday. Guess I’ll hit Publish and drive on.
