I don't think I've seen Tarantula in quite a while and I don't have it on DVD, so I'll tape that one.

I'm deciding whether to record "It Came From Outer Space." Don't know much about it and want to avoid spoilers. Any recommendations?

I think it's one of the better '50s B-movies. Ray Bradbury was involved in the writing, and... well, if I said the main thing I liked about it, that would be a spoiler. Let's just say it's not your conventional Red-Scare-era alien invasion movie.

Plus, it features the Professor from "Gilligan's Island"!

Be aware, however, that it was orignally released in 3-D (like "The Creature from the Black Lagoon"). So don't be surprised if meteors come zooming at the screen!

It's a classic. You should definitely record it.

This is how much of a nerd I am: I turned on the TV for half a second, saw a glimpse of a boat and immediately realized it was the one from the creature from the Black Lagoon

Oh, darn, I forgot this was tonight, and it's too late to record Creature. I'm not sure I've ever seen that one, at least since childhood.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Yeah I got sucked in. I haven't seen it since I was a kid and one of the things I had forgotten was how smart the creature is. he effectively outwits the crew of the boat more often than not.

Also as an aside I gotta say how incredibly hot Julia Adams was at the time. I couldnt take my eyes off her. Absolutely stunning.

^^ Yeah, the white bathing suit scene is legendary.

Hopefully, my recording of Tarantula was successful. I'll try to watch it today.

Dare I admit that I have an autographed photo of Julia Adams framed on the wall of my office? (I'm looking at it right now!)

Alas, I haven't met her. The photo was a gift from a friend years ago.

I didn't even catch the white bathing suit scene this go-round. Just her face alone was incredible, a bit like a more down to earth Liz Taylor.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

Watched a horribly turgid 1971 version of MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE on TCM the other night. Not sure how you make a movie about a disfigured homicidal maniac in a gorilla suit boring, but somehow they managed . . . .
