The Green Slime (1968) First time viewing since mom and pops took us to see it at the drive-in a loooong time ago. I enjoyed it, it might not match Honda's sci-fiers around this time (like Latitude Zero), and some of the FX are pretty weak, but for Japanese cheese (a co-production with the U.S.), it entertained.
Boy, that Humanoid movie on Svengoolie tonight was pretty inert. Some interesting ideas, but more like a book on tape than a film. I'm surprised Sven didn't mention a certain credit for George Milan, he played Merlin in Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders.
Milan did a lot of TV work, and just a few movies... but I've now seen 3 of them.
Funny, I turned on the TV to watch Svengoolie, a few minutes early, and there's Murray Alper taking 3 bowling balls on the head in a 3-Stooges short.
Then Black Friday plays on Sven, and there he is again, playing a bellhop.
Was it Murray Alper day on MeTV? (he had parts in about 111 movies from the '30s to mid '60s... so it was just the law of averages - but it almost made me want to stay up and see if he was on the show after Svengoolie, and then after that. How much Alper can I spot in a night?)

Sven was showing House of Horrors last night with Rondo Hatton. The movie uses The Brute Man's opening titles with Rondo's shadow walking menacingly. I guess had Rondo didn't die suddenly we could have gotten more in this "series"
Horror film historian David J. Skal was the guest, I tend to lean towards Hammer, and am more familiar with those commentators, etc, but I have heard him on the Abbott & Costello Meets Frankenstein disc and he has a lot of stories to tell.
