Wedding Photo

This just submitted by Robert MacPhail:

Hey Ron-

Have a look at this photo of everyone's favorite fiendish couple from 1935's BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.  This picture is up on EBAY right now with a deep pockets price tag. A very authentic looking vintage nitrate image.

The "getting to know you" scene we usually have seen for years has Karloff more with his head tilted back and a mouth open dumbfounded look at the beauty? before him. This photo he's leaning inward depicting  a more serious look trying to impress his girl with his vast intellect. She's actually taking the bait and seems both frightened and interested.

I thought I've seen it all with BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN photos (God knows I looked up all angles  for my art projects) but this seems like something fresh. Just thought I would pass it on just in case this never made it to your crypt. Beast to you.

Robert S. MacPhail  SCREAMLINERS.

Thanks Robert, a wonderful eyeful!

Early Monster Flashbacks

When I sit and type through the day, occasionally I'll pause as some wavering golden tinted memory shifts in my mind like the Northern Lights. I was thinking about all those very early memories that got me interested in movie monsters. It's really not the movies, they came with excitement because of these earlier memories.

I was about six years old. One boring, rainy day I sat on my bedroom floor with a stack of magazines that my mom was throwing out. She said I could draw on them as I always liked to draw for as long as I could hold a pen, pencil or crayon. I was paging through these dull magazines on food, housekeeping and fashion. Looking for a face to add scars to, a mustache, or a goofy tooth. Suddenly I came across the most interesting advertisement. It was a series of women, unknowingly, being menaced by these creatures. A Frankenstein Monster, Dracula, a mummy, a werewolf. I was intrigued and fascinated. Showed my mom and she told me about the monsters. I remembered that image of the ad for decades. Finally I found it again forty plus years later...discovering it was in a magazine called Ingenue for Cutex lipstick of all things.

Then, there was a wonderful memory of my dad and I playing with The Haunted Hulk on the floor of my parents bedroom. A shiny hardwood floor that was the ocean as the Haunted Hulk (a plastic boat), loaded with little MPC monsters sailed along the wood grain. Also, with my dad in that gray, shadowy world known as a basement, painting my first Aurora monster model together....Frankenstein. The tombstone, the outstretched arms and the smell of turpentine, the clicking of little glass Testors paint bottles.

My grandfather showing me pictures of Lon Chaney, Sr. in a library book (from Grove City College) on "The Movies." The Phantom, The Hunchback, The London Vampires, the ape-like creature from a movie called A BLIND BARGAIN. My grandfather had seen Chaney films when he was a kid in the theaters. We paged together on a sunny Saturday morning on his front porch.

It was these fleeting memories that lead to the path of loving monster movies and discovering them even BEFORE seeing the actual films. I bet you, too, have some early visions of classic creatures in toys, advertising, TV commercials, library books. These are warm, fun memories of movie monsters and of my family that I hold dear. A time and place that still is happening in my mind...where I can go back and share all over again. I miss and long for those moments as they replay for me over and over. Melancholy magic.

Creepy Classics & Monster Bash

There isn't a day that goes by that I haven't thought of those days when I was a young monster kid.that now I am in my 60's this year it's monster bash or bust. thanks

-Mark Steva, Las Vegas, NV

Ron,

Your story really struck a chord with me...my experience was so similar growing up.

When I was in grade school, a single book changed my life forever. It was Movie Monsters by Alan Ormsby.
I found it during a visit to our school by the Bookmobile...(remember that?) I was instantly drawn to the cover.
I bought it for a mere 50 cents and the rest is history. More movie monster books followed.

Great Monsters of the Movies by Edward Edelson...Phantom of the Opera by David Bischoff...Super Monsters by Daniel Cohen. I devoured them all. Every time a Scholastic books order form arrived I scoured it for the latest
monster fare. My school library had the entire series of Crestwood House monster books, with their perfectly Halloween themed orange and black covers.

I had any two of them checked out continuously in rotation. Then came the glorious Christmas in 1980 when my parents bought me the single greatest Christmas present I ever received or ever will receive. The Remco mini-monster playcase and set of six figures.

I could barely contain myself at owning these little plastic versions of Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. I kept that set well into my high school years until I finally gave it up to the oh so familiar garage sale. I remember my first monster model...the 1983 Monogram Mummy reissue. I got it for my 11th birthday, and I can still remember the newspaper spread out all over the kitchen table as I gleefully covered him in Testors enamels. Then like most I got older and had moved on from my beloved monsters until one day in 1991 when my life was changed a second time.

It was a routine visit to Wal-Mart when I saw a gigantic VHS display announcing the Universal Studios Classic Monster Collection. I couldn't believe my eyes. There in front of me was every classic monster movie I had dreamed of seeing for years. Within weeks I had bought them all. That was 27 years ago.

In that time there have been Horizon models, Sideshow figures, Monster Bash, Don Post masks, monster magazines and so, so much more. But I owe it all to that one book, purchased on a perfectly gloomy October day back in 1979.
I have it still...

Thanks for letting me share my story.

Regards,
Dwayne Pinkney, Jefferson, OH

Dear Ron, Just read your new editorial, and I gotta say, when it comes to my early monster movies is easy. At age 5, my big sister took me to see King Kong vs Godzilla, and I was hooked! It wasn't soon after that I was attracted to classic monsters..from TV shows like The Munsters, The Addams Family, The Outer Limits, and the Twilight Zone. From then on, I went to all the monster movies that played at my hometown theater, and was swept away by Jason and the Argonauts, 7th Voyage of Sinbad..Godzilla and friends, and my first Hammer, Dracula Has Risen from the Grave, I was 10! Then came Chilly Billy and Chiller Theater. I had some cool toys too, The Thing Bank, Uncle Festers Light Bulb, Creepy Crawlers and I bought trading cards.

I'm one lucky monster kid, I get to do what I love and paint classic monsters, and share my love of classic horror on my pages, photography and writing..To me the good old days aren't that far away. I live them everyday and my memories are kept alive moment to moment, when I'm reading my vintage Famous Monsters or new treasures like Monster Bash Magazine and others. I can pop in a DVD and be on fog shrouded woods of The Wolf Man or in Frankenstein's castle. Or fighting monsters with Sinbad. I'm still that little kid, when I build a new monster model, or find something cool for my collection. So, I keep my sense of wonder and remember the past and carry it forward.

Malcolm Gittins, Pittsburgh, PA

Two Birthdays Remembered

And now, jettisoned from his space-age control center in the heart of Kentucky, our Bashin' Birthday reporter, Scott Goettel, has issued this report:

Hi Ron,

Two birthdays this time!

First, the legendary John Barrymore, born February 15th, 1882, and passed away at age 60 on May 29th, 1942.

His many acting credits go all the back to 1912, in the first of five short films...titled THE DREAM OF A MOVING PICTURE DIRECTOR, and he was credited as 'The Movie Villain'.  His name was also credited as 'JACK' Barrymore.

His other roles include an uncredited part in BEN HUR: A TALE OF THE CHRIST, MOBY DICK, THE SEA BEAST, SVENGALI, BULLDOG DRUMMOND COMES BACK, BULLDOG DRUMMOND'S REVENGE, BULLDOG DRUMMOND'S PERIL, THE INVISIBLE WOMAN, RASPUTIN AND THE EMPRESS, and the 1920 classic DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE.

Our next birthday salute is for a great actor who was a great guest at Monster Bash more than once...Kevin McCarthy, born February 15th, 1914, and passed away on September 10th, 2010 at age 96.

What an honor it was to meet him.  So nice to all of his fans, and he had great stories to share about his career and the people he worked with.  It was fascinating and fun to listen to him, and he could be quite a rascal at any give time!

Something I truly enjoy watching is one of my all time favorite Twilight Zone episodes - "LONG LIVE WALTER JAMESON".  Kevin McCarthy was brilliant in that role.  Not once, but twice (at WonderFest and Monster Bash), I had the pleasure of sitting near him as all of us in the movie room watched that episode, along with him watching too.  Now THAT was a treat.

His career was huge, and just a few more of the many great acting roles he had include AN ANNAPOLIS STORY, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, LIGHTS OUT, INNER SANCTUM, NIGHTMARE (with Edward G. Robinson), THE MISFITS (with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe), THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR, THE INVADERS, THE WILD WILD WEST, THE HOWLING, TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE (1983), and...my favorite...INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, and of course his brief appearance in the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Warmest Wishes for two Happy Monster Bashin' Birthdays, John Barrymore and Kevin McCarthy!

~Scott

New on Blu and DVD! NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD from Criterion

Now in shock stock at Creepy Classics!

Shot outside Pittsburgh on a shoestring budget, by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role. Stark, haunting, Night of the Living Dead is back.

Night of the Living Dead was restored by the Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation.

Bonus Material: -New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director George A. Romero, coscreenwriter John A. Russo, sound engineer Gary R. Streiner, and producer Russell W. Streiner -New restoration of the monaural soundtrack, supervised by Romero and Gary Streiner and presented uncompressed on the Blu-ray -Night of Anubis, a never-before-presented work-print edit of the film -New program featuring filmmakers Frank Darabont, Guillermo del Toro, and Robert Rodriguez -Never-before-seen 16 mm dailies reel -New program featuring Russo on the commercial and industrial-film production company where key Night of the Living Dead filmmakers got their start -Two audio commentaries from 1994 featuring Romero, Russo, producer Karl Hardman, actor Judith O’Dea, and others -Archival interviews with Romero and actors Duane Jones and Judith Ridley -New programs about the film’s style and score -New interview program about the direction of ghouls, featuring members of the cast and crew -New interviews with Gary Streiner and Russell Streiner -Newsreels from 1967 -Trailer, radio spots, and TV spots -PLUS: An essay by critic Stuart Klawans.
