November 26, 1966 Schedule

On Saturday Night, November 26 in 1966 at 11:15PM on KCRA Channel 3, Bob Wilkins showed a couple of good movies. The first movie was "Night Tide"(1961) directed by Curtis Harrington and starring Dennis Hopper. "On leave in a shore side town, Johnnybecomes interested in a young dark haired woman. They meet and he learns that she plays a mermaid in the local carnival. After strange occurences, Johnny begins to believe that she may actually be a real mermaid that habitually kills during the cycle of the full moon." The second movie was an AIP classic called "How To Make A Monster"(1958). "When master monster make up man, Pete is fired by the new bosses of American International studios, he uses his creations (via a new concocted make up formula) to exact revenge." Both movies are available on DVD. If you get "Night Tide", Be sure to get "The Milestone Collection" edition by Image. Excellent quality. Avoid those budget dvd's. As for "How To Make A Monster", Lionsgate has released an alright version of it. Not Bad, But then again, Not Good.
