Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

Low standards will keep you better entertained. I'm not a high-maintenance film watcher.

Watched Svengoolie on a cable channel last night. The slapstick was so bad that it was funny. Kind of reverse humor.

The movie du jour that he presented was Werewolf of London, 1935, with Henry Hull. I think it was the first werewolf film, with the first attempt at proper wolf costuming. There was a big flap about the makeup, but it served as role model for other creature presentations that came along before computers.

Warner Olund played Dr. Yogami, a Japanese doc. Olund was a Swedish actor best known as Charlie Chan in a series of films in the 40's, claimed to be the only movies that kept Warner Bros in business at the time. Strange that a Swede would be so convincing as an Asian, but it obviously worked well.

Any movie from the 30's is going to be freakin' horrible, but there are other reasons to see them.
