Anonymous during horror film holiday dinner, the drumsticks have you. cullen_waters That The Vulture? And if so, when does Spider-man come to save the day? Anonymous “You want eggs, Bitch? I’ll give you some eggs!” Megan McCain found working on Bert I. Gordon’s farm a lot harder than she thought! Rock Baker The Vulture was one that I never got to see. Pop didn’t encourage going out of the way to see it, either. He saw the film as a kid, and was so disappointed with the revealed monster that it soured the flick for him forever after. (For the sake of those who haven’t seen it either, I’ll refrain from describing what Pop saw.) I’m still game, though, should the flick ever fall into my hands. Anonymous Rock, the entire film is available for viewing on YouTube. It’s even from a British print, which were in color. The American release used black & white prints, presumably because of the substantial monetary difference. Rock Baker That’s interesting, as TNT must have used the Brit print when it screened the film for Monstervision way back when (I remember seeing this scene on the promo). Thanks for the tip, Ken, but one of the things I can’t do with this computer is watch videos! So much for my YouTube account! Anonymous Looks like Paramount (the American distributor) used black & white prints for the theatrical release, and color prints for TV. I know the Vulture played in drive-ins etc with The Deadly Bees, so I’m sure it was strictly as a bottom of the bill cheapie that they didn’t wish to blow any more money on than they strictly had to. TV sales must have required the more costly color prints, however, like how Larry Buchanan was given a (very) small amount of money to remake old Corman sci-fi films because the stations demanded color movies. Rock Baker That sounds right. Flangepart Lucky the monster was male, or there would be a serious egg deposit problem.
