I haven't seen either The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm or The 5000 Fingers Of Dr. T, I don't think, so I'm looking forward to taping those.

9:15 AM: One Million B.C. (1941) with Victor Mature -- sadly, not the Raquel Welch remake.
Ah, but this is a wonderful movie. Carole Landis is a match for Raquel Welch and Victor Mature is far better than whatsisname. This is a rare case of the original and the remake being equally good.
I enjoyed the original version, too, but I'd say the Ray Harryhausen effects give the remake an edge. And Carole Landis is a cutie of a cave girl, true, but no match for Raquel and her legendary fur bikini!
