On this evening, BOB WILKINS showed THE HAND (1960) & THE MAD EXECUTIONERS. The latter is a German Krimi based on a EDGAR WALLACE novel.
But a real life horror was happening in Southern California on this day 40 years ago. It was the SHARON TATE murders caused by the CHARLIE MANSON FAMILY. Very Sad.
