October 1, 1966 Schedule

On Saturday Night, October 1, 1966, on KCRA Channel 3 at 11:30PM, Bob Wilkins showed 2 AIP Movies directed by Roger Corman. The first movie shown was "The Terror" (1963) and starring Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson. "A young officer in Napolean's army pursues a mysterious woman to the castle of an elderly baron where he discovers that she is the pawn of an old witch bent on driving the baron to suicide." The second movie was the black horror/comedy "A Bucket Of Blood" (1959) starring Dick Miller and Antony Carbone. "Dick Miller is Walter Paisley, a busboy who is an aspiring artist. One day, he accidently kills a cat, covers it in plaster and presents it as a piece of art but one masterpiece is not enough, but where is the next masterpiece going to come from.................?" Both movies are available on DVD, unfortunately both are in the public domain so there are plenty of crappy versions of both titles. I have yet to see a quality DVD of "The Terror", however the best DVD version of "A Bucket Of Blood" is from MGM Home Entertainment. It is currently Out Of Print, however you can pick up a used one from Amazon or ebay.
