Somebody---it might have been William Everson---said that when he was in school in the 40s, kids used to make up names to coorespond to the initials PRC; one of them was 'pretty rotten crap.'

QUOTE: .........he turns to his retarded assistant It is curious how often we get a retarded assistant in these Lugosi Monograms. I can think of four films that use retarded characters: Bowery at Midnight, Corpse Vanishes, Voodoo Man,...

I googled Timothy Lugosi, and it appears that the official Lugosi website is lugosi.com. Haven't explored it yet though.

Re: Bowery at Midnight (reply)
Tom Weaver's point about Monogram heroes is interesting. They did a variation of same thing with the hero in Invisible Ghost. They kill off the slacker love interest for Polly Ann Young, and then bring back his twin brother, as a new...

Re: Dracula's Daughter (reply)
I've seen a BTS photo of Curt's brother Robert Siodmak directing Cobra Woman in 1943. If I remember correctly, the back of his director's chair had the following printed: "It's pronounced SEE-ODD-MACK."

Re: Best Poverty Row DVDs? (reply)
It just seems to me that nearly all British pre-war films (like The Human Monster) that made it to the USA don't have that crisp visual quality (and sometimes sound quality) of the American films of the same age. I don't know if they...

Re: Dracula's Daughter (reply)
Incidentally, does anyone know the correct pronounciation of Irving Pichel's name? I've always said it as "Pitch-ul," but I notice that Greg Mank, in his audio commentary of the 1932 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, calls him...

Tobor from TOBOR THE GREAT. That's the one! I was never much of a Robbie the Robot fan, but Tobor...he was different. When I first saw the film back in '58 or '59 (it was issued in 1954), I wanted so much to be that 10 year old kid. I...

Re: The WORST popular actor of the Golden Age (reply)
Perhaps I'm in a minority, but I think PLAYMATES is pretty cute. No classic certainly, but charming in some ways, even if JB is the butt of quite a few gags. Sure, Barrymore is hammy--deliberately so it would seem, but the film is...

Re: The WORST popular actor of the Golden Age (reply)
Let me put a different spin on the subject, and mention one of the most over-rated actresses... Fay Wray. Her performance is dippy through KONG, and although you have to give her credit for her bone chilling screams, the film would have...
