The Second Most Shown Movie On "Creature Features": "The Vulture" (1967)
In a previous post, I mentioned that "Night Of The Living Dead"(1968) was the most shown movie on "Creature Features" with 10 showings. Well, the second most shown movie on "Creature Features" was a little ditty from England called "The Vulture"(1967) starring Akim Tamiroff and Robert Hutton, for a total of 7 showings. It was a weird movie about a mad scientist who turns himself into a Half-Man/Half-Bird Monster to avenge the death of his ancestor. It was on KTVU's "Creature Features on the following dates and times: February 27, 1971 @ 9:PM, August 21, 1971 @ 9:PM, July 29, 1972 @ 9:PM, January 19, 1974 @ 9:PM, July 12, 1975 @ 11:30PM, September 9, 1977 (Friday) @ 11:30PM and January 26, 1979 (Friday) @ 11:30PM. With the exception of the last two, "The Vulture" was shown on Saturday Night. This movie was shown theatrically by Paramount Pictures and was released on VHS by Monterey Video back in the 1980's. It has yet to be released on DVD. I don't think it has been shown on television, either broadcast or cable in years!!! A Lost Weird Classic For Sure.
