Saturday Night at the Movies! 7/23/11

Who cares what picture we see?

Lois Maxwell would, and I think she'd be happy if we went with a double feature tonight!

In those wild days before home video, the only way to see an older film you loved was either to catch it smushed onto your TV screen wrapped around cat food commercials, or when the studio would do a re-release, like the one above. Sorry that both the trailer and the poster are in slightly rough and washed out condition - but this was a short running engagement, and I think we're lucky somebody held onto these at all!

And just for fun - what if Sean Connery decided to come back out of retirement for one more 007 adventure? Wouldn't the odds be better than good that they'd go for the third version of Thunderball? The very clever editor who came up with this next clip certainly thought so...

And of course, these films (well, except for Thunderball Never Dies, because I'm waiting for the Betamax release) are in a place of honor in the video vault - on the 007th shelf - and sit ready to watch at any point - starting with tonight, should you turn up on my doorstep!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
