Kingdom of the Vampire (Tempe Video, 2007)
White Huntress (American International Pictures, 1958)
I also have not seen this 50's jungle adventure - but it seems to be the usual mix of studio bound jungle sets and animal stock footage. One interesting bit - the movie was shot in Technicolor - and played in color overseas - but American International didn't want to invest in color prints for the domestic release - so they struck black and white prints and sent them out!
Always have to break out what you will SEE...
Hercules (Warner Bros., 1959)
Made the previous year in Italy - this did so well worldwide - that it touched off a huge series of similar movies - called peplums - throughout the next decade. I know these movies have their fans - but I find them mostly bland and boring - unless they have monsters or special effects.
Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
