I’m off to Mars, Pennsylvania once again for another weekend of classic monsters. I fully intend to sit in and watch titles like 1945’s The Body Snatcher with a group of film fans who love the film as much as I do. Was Karloff ever better? I don’t thinks so. It’s nice to see that the little girl played by Sheryn Moffett will be in attendance for some stories and memories.

Even Sorry Wrong Number is playing so that Burt Lancaster – Barbara Stanwyck title is on my dance card. Don’t be surprised if I locate a couple of original film posters for the vault here at home as is my custom.

Feel free to to click on to my facebook page as I’ll do my best to post a few pics as the the three days pass.

One never knows who you might see.

Two years ago I met my favorite of the Hammer Queens, Carolyn Munro.


Hopefully this year I’ll get a chance to ask Audrey Dalton if she has any fond memories of working with Alan Ladd and Charles Bronson in 1954’s Drum Beat.
