Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #95!





Jail Bait  (Howco Productions, 1954)




I think I've seen all of the ever incredible Ed Wood Jr ouevre, but I can't say I remember this one all that well - which means I'd be up for seeing it again - wonder if it's in my Ed Wood collection boxset? Also, that tagline - I think they mean the girls are scorching with trouble with the law - because otherwise, calling girls hot on a poster for a movie called Jail Bait might get you a visit from Chris Hansen...










Rolling Thunder  (American International, 1977)



Fairly unsung 70's revenge drama - with William Devane and a very young Tommy Lee Jones as returned Vietnam prisoners of war who are forced on the Road to Vengeance when bad guys (led by James "Rosco P. Coltrane" Best himself!) do bad things to Devane and his family for some silver coins he had stashed away. Quentin Tarantino named his production company after this movie, if that tells you anything.












Fists of Bruce Lee  (Cinema Shares International Distribution, 1978)



Wow. The always amazing world of Brucesploitation. I haven't seen this one - but if you have it bring it by and let's check it out!

I dream of creating a "making of" docudrama about this flick - and get a guy we'll call Bruce Lea to star - so that poster would read "Bruce Lea IS Bruce Li AS Bruce Lee IN Fists of Bruce Li's Bruce Lee Fists." Tell me you wouldn't watch that one.







That's all for now - until next we meet, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

  1. Haven't seen any of them, though I would definitely check out Jail Bait (Ed Wood ftw!) and Rolling Thunder (Tommy Lee rocks).

    Never been a fan of any kinda Brucesploitation, but I'm sure my blog buddy Brian from Cool Ass Cinema enjoys this stuff :)

    1. Rolling Thunder has enough horrific elements to qualify as a Horror Movie Diary entry.

      I'll bet he does!

  2. Roling Thunder. I always wondered what that means. Great poster with the hook. Always educational Craig.

  3. Love these posters! I would so want to see Bruce Li as Bruce Lee. What's that song "They Call Me Bruce."

    Did not know Q titled his company after this little Devane nugget. Cool!

    1. There's also a pretty bad chopsocky comedy called They Call Me Bruce - from the early 80's - starring Johnny Yune. Remember him?

      He sure did - he's gaga over those 70's flicks, you know.

    2. Ahh Johnny Yune...Wonder what he's up to or if he's still around.
