I’m sure nobody expected me to get my act together overnight. If you did, well, you realize you were setting yourself up for disappointment, do you not? No matter. We all have foolish expectations from time to time.
All this by way of introduction to another Monstrous Monday. My only decision now is whether to use repeat monsters or search for new pictures to share. I think I’ll look for old and try to think of new things to say about them.
I do not remember why I downloaded this shot or when I used it. Trog, for the uninitiated, is Joan Crawford’s last movie. It is not my favorite cheesy horror movie featuring Crawford. And before anybody hazards a guess, neither is Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. I don’t think I have ever seen Taste the Blood of Dracula, although I have seen a few Hammer Dracula movies starring Christopher Lee. I understand he kept saying each one was his last, but the studio would talk him into the next, often by pointing out how many people would get work thereby. If that is true, it gives me quite a good opinion of Lee, even outside of his acting prowess.
What’s a Monstrous Monday without my favorite guy, Nosferatu?
I end with a monster of the human variety, Robert Walker as Bruno in Strangers on a Train, on the right. The other guy, looking a little apprehensive (and no idea yet how right he is to be so!) is Farley Granger as Guy Haines. Good movie. I’ll have to give it another watch soon. But not on a double bill with Trog.
