Don’t you eyeball me, boy.
Welcome to Night Flight. Your weekend open thread. Night Beat.
This week Svengoolie will feature Dr. Cyclops. In TECHNICOLOR.
Sunday. Ernie Anderson. Brand new promos and commercials. Various. Seconds ago uploaded. 1980.
X Minus One.
Google Doodle edition. Celebrating Bach. I’ve actually listened to Bach on Youtube here previously. I know him from MASH when Radar is trying to flirt with Mary Kay Place.
Quiet, Please. Who put the goddamn hat on the bed? To this day I freak out if I see a hat on a bed. I would never do such a thing myself.
Historical spy novels. Found these pics in an old spy novel post. He really is top of the line with the past masters in the thriller business. I have a first edition of Night Soldiers that is one of my most valuable books at around $100 or so. Paid $1.
I ended up in the hospital. Taut/taught should have been your first clue. Call 911 immediately. I was still too cheap to pay for the ambulance ride so I got a lift to the emergency room. They found nothing. The most painful part was pulling off all of the little adhesive things on my chest when I got home just now. I…
I told louie that for several weeks Wednesdays will have Snacks, a movie, and Soda. Three topics. Can be seen below in a block. Mr. Pibb was the Texas soda, and Coke’s ripoff of Dr. Pepper. Called “Peppo.” Got sued. Then Mr. Pibb. Now it has a stupid name.
Royal Crown Cola.
Hostess. And others.
Patrick McGoohan. One of the crime films it took me forever to find. Also one of those forgotten movies that was supposed to be terrible that turned out to be perfectly watchable. Serviceable. Alan Alda, Richard Widmark. One of my favorite Elmore Leonard books. I searched Youtube two or three times a year and one day…
Peter Lorre. Suspense. Boxing and gambling. Scrolling through the Youtube radio channel. Roma wines were the sponsor.
Directed by John Huston. Underrated Huston in the grand scheme of things. One of the best movies ever made in my opinion. Fantastic. Rip roaring. The radio show on Escape is exceptional as well. Blu-ray is a beauty. I have a cut rate DVD edition that still looks pretty good. Highly recommended.
Escape, 1948 and Suspense. This is the new Youtube radio channel I found with remastered audio. Kind of a best of collection. I rely on those heavily to pick titles.
Vintage. Library of Congress and New York Public Library. Not many people got a code to live by anymore.
I sometimes play hour long TV shows like Remington Steele and listen on the headphones with no video. Graduated to actual radio lately. I found the Shogun mini-series at Internet Archive, so I’m doing it audio only (or mostly). Half and half say. 1980 NBC. Orson Welles narrator. Big hit. I’ve read the book several…
