Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Actually it turns out there was a giant octopus in King Kong vs. Godzilla, by the name of Oodako. But apparently that simply means "King Octopus." And it's also called Daidako, which simply means "Giant Octopus." So maybe my complaint about Japanese kaiju names being more imaginative was misplaced...

I didn't see the 1940s Batman serials on the schedule. With the release of The Dark Knight Rises, this would have been the perfect opportunity.

I saw them on DVD and discuss them here.

I got one of those for my birthday several years ago. I forget which one, though.

Watching It Came from Beneath the Sea, I about hit my limit with Captain T-Bone Chauvanist Sexual Harassment guy when they thankfully put him in his place a bit.

I like that Hornet serial. I don't know if I would've appreciated it years ago but I like the way the Hornet and Kato look and the Black Beauty too. The music and sound, the cool logo, the screen wipes give a breezy vibe to it all. I like Ms. Case's voice, you never hear women with inflection like that nowadays, kinda big city kinda Mae West, hard to describe.

I think the thing that impressed me most was just the way the Hornet climbs a fire escape like a boss.

I haven't heard the car called the Black Beauty here. It's just called "the car of the Green Hornet" (an odd phrasing).

And yeah, the serials' Casey is nice and sultry, though she's not as hot as Wende Wagner from the '60s show.

I'm amused by the way Casey is such a staunch defender of the Hornet even though she's never met him and has absolutely no reason for thinking he's a hero.

"I think the Green Hornet is just what this city needs!"

It's almost like she's peeked at the script. Or listened to the radio show!

Especially in a black-and-white serial.

It is kind of a shame that the Green Hornet isn't green . . .

I'm not a big fan of colorization, but you could make a case for old superhero serials.

I found that was amusing as well. I guess she's a tough cookie so she just has a hunch about these things.

When he gets his bearings, "The Experienced Hornet" just won't have the same ring to it.
