Last Night’s Viewing

Well it all began with turning off the Obama infomercial/ used car sale  and went uphill from there. Not that he’s not fabulous in HD, but still. So, first up:

A cartoon of course. From 1941, WOODY WOODPECKER from THE WOODY WOODPECKER AND FRIENDS CLASSIC CARTOON COLLECTION.

Followed by THE HYP-NUT-TIST from POPEYE THE SAILOR  VOL ONE, a truly awesome collection.

Serial time! Chapter 2, “The House in the Hills”, of  THE RETURN OF CHANDU. Not as ripping as a Republic serial but I like Lugosi as a mystic. I dig thirties and forties swami heroes and villains.

And finally the main feature, from 1944 the cowboy B-picture WILD HORSE PHANTOM! How cool is that? Kids on the internet love forties B-westerns. This stars Buster Crabbe! You know, FLASH GORDON himself. It clocks in at under an hour and I’m pretty sure it used the Devil Bat prop bat from the Lugosi perfume bat revenge thriller THE DEVIL BAT. Buster chases some escaped convicts to a spooky mine. It’s part of the CREEPY COWBOYS COLLECTION.
