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...

Rick wrote:Yes, I saw IT'S A SMALL WORLD just a few months ago.  It's a crummy movie, probably laughable if you're in the right frame of mind.  The lead actor is a little person.  Well, let's say he's a genuine little person, but not a...

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?

Re: Return of the Vampire (reply)
In the film THE MYSTERIOUS DOCTOR, it seems that WB hired Willis to do another Chaney character, this time as a Lennie Small type. As this came a year before the Columbia film, who knows, it may have been the inspiration for his casting...

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.
