TCM has HOLLYWOOD MY HOMETOWN scheduled for 5am Eastern time on October 31. That's the Ken Murray clip show that has footage of Karloff as the monster at a celebrity baseball game for some charity.

Probably because as a child I had a fascination with the NYC subway system and an el train only two blocks away that the train sequence in Kong means so much to me. The one image that particularly lingers from my first viewing at the age...

Isn't the cat who hisses at Dr. Edelmann in HOUSE OF DRACULA actually just a recycling of the footage of the cat who hissed at Dr. Glendon in WEREWOLF OF LONDON?
