Greetings, Guys & Ghouls!
Ye Olde Dragon shall be attempting the Herculean task of hosting not ONE – not TWO – but THREE movies for the #TCMParty this coming Thursday night, June 6, 2013. That night is a TCM Spotlight Special night of Creature Features! And what a night it is! Karloff, Kaiju, Kong & Harryhausen all in one night! Plus the Gill Man & Cyclops thrown in for good measure.
It certainly hearkens back to June of 2010, when TCM had featured Drive-In Double Features every Thursday night. In fact, it was during these nights that saw the birth of both The Drive-In Mob AND the TCM Party.
I’m very happy to have offered to host three of my favorite Imagi-Movies (and have it accepted) truly three classics: James Whale’s THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935), Ishiro Honda’s GODZILLA, KING OF THE MONSTERS (1956) and Jack Arnold’s THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954). I’m gonna save my Harryhausen insights for the Ray Harryhausen Tribute Night that TCM will be having on Thursday, July 11, 2013 (But I MIGHT still be around during Robert Gordon’s IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA (1955) at 12:30AM). See you then!
Here’s the full schedule for the evening. Remember that all times are Eastern Daylight Time.
8:00PM – Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
9:30PM – Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956)
11:00PM – The Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954)
12:30AM – It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955)
2:00AM – King Kong (1933)
4:00AM – The Cyclops (1957)
