Re: A Visit With Kharis (reply)
I completely forgot that I have the CD compilation of the original CoF issues in PDF form. The "Quiz Kids" anecdote is in issue 6 on page 26. But as with Andy, just don't ask me where I read something yesterday. If it wasn't for my own...

ODD MAN OUT is creepier than most of the horror films on that list. One could say that James Mason plays a living corpse but if you haven't seen it, this one is a must and it's been a while since TCM has aired it.

Re: I Love to Singa (1936) (reply)
I had only seen "I Love to Singa" once and it remained burned into my memory because I so related to it. When I was six, I was already a veteran of listening to radio and could sing all the popular songs, even if I didn't know what the...

Thank you for that well-documented piece. I found it fascinating.That Reginald Mason sure looks like Reginald Gardiner and a Google image search for Gardiner turns up the same pic.

Thanks for the story and the link to the Chris Steinbrunner page. I knew Chris on-and-off for 20 years, always liked him.I never did discuss that James Bond show with him and I believe I addressed this on some other occasion. I'm fairly...

Henry Daniell was extensively doubled in THE SEA HAWK according to the book "Swordsmen of the Screen." Apparently the close-ups are Daniell, as well as medium shots with minimal swordsplay, but the action scenes were done with several...

Re: Five Million Years To Earth (reply)
I sort of agree with Rick and Lady Jay. The film is one of Hammer's brightest moments, or should I say brightest 90 or so minutes. Everything seemed bathed in light, no ambiance at all. That is a turn off for me as Rick is right - there...

IT'S A SMALL WORLD at 2am Sat night/Sun morning has to be the oddest thing in the William Castle catalog. Only one user comment on the IMDb and that's from a person in Norway. Has anyone here seen the film?
