All the Noose That's Fit To Post

Kong and Thanksgiving...

Here we are, another Thanksgiving and it always brings up some of my best memories.

Thanksgivings were magic for me back in the late sixties and early seventies. We lived in State College, PA from 1968 on. (I moved to the Pittsburgh area in the early 1980s). We had early cable in 1968. It was Centre Video. If we didn't have cable, we only got three channels..Altoona, Johnstown (fuzzy),and three (University Park PBS). Channel 16 from Scranton came in, fuzzy, with a lot of rabbit ear antenna struggling.

But, with cable...we got eight channels! Imagine that - eight channels to choose from. And, believe it or not, there was more choices I liked to watch then, than with 200 channels today. It was all because of three New York City stations (technically one was Secaucus, New Jersey): WNEW 5, WOR 9, and WPIX 11. Wow....independents that played an almost non-stop rush of movies from the 1930s-1950s.

On Thanksgiving, Channel 9 started a tradition that would carry on for over a decade. KING KONG on Thanksgiving Day. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, I think there were a few Thanksgivings that KONG played multiple, multiple times during the day. SON OF KOING and MIGHTY JOE YOUNG would be in the mix as well. And, in between things, I'd flip over to Channel 11 for the Thanksgiving showing of MARCH OFTHE WOODEN SOLDIERS! Laurel and Hardy meeting up with those maniamals - The Bogeymen. Hideous man-beasts that lived in caverns below the earth.

So, it is with joy, I can feel Thanksgiving with KING KONG (1933), MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (1949), and MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS on TV. All this while, the aroma of baking turkey came from the kitchen. The house, overly warm from the oven being on since the wee hours of the morning. And that smell of sage meant stuffing (my favorite) was to be had by all too!

During commercial breaks, I would slip out to the kitchen and snitch a green olive and a piece of celery. Sugar cookies had been baked by my mom and my sister.

The meal and family are together and Carl Denham has captured the biggest gorilla ever. Stan and Ollie have beaten the Bogeymen and the evil Barnaby. Joe Young was climbing a tree and saving a little girl from a burning orphanage. It's all the 8th Wonder of the World.

It's KING KONG, it's Thanksgiving.

I'll be watching all of those films, and now again, cooking the turkey and making the stuffing with my wife and daughter. And my daughter also knows that Thanksgiving and KING KONG are inseparable.

-Ron Adams

FANGtastic memories Ron! Love it when you post this each year...we will also be carving the Pteranodon and watching the original broadcast of Kong like we have for years!! Dad will be with us thankfully and he sends his best. God bless you and your wonderful family.  Here is a shot from one of the highlights of the summer..."Joey's" APEpearence at The New York World's Fair's 50th Anniversary Celebration!!

Best always, The Vento Family

Hi Ron,  I have been going to Monster Bash every year (now twice a year) for a long time and want to say how much I appreciate the hard work and effort of you and your entire team to make it a special weekend.

I read with great fondness your reminisces of Thanksgiving Day.  I grew up near New York and watched those independent channels (5, 9 and 11) and saw many old movies on them.  Thanksgiving did indeed have King Kong and Son of Kong on all day I believe; that and March of the Wooden Soldiers were annual traditions for us as well, as soon as the Macy’s Parade ended.  As a young one I was totally creeped out by the bogeymen and Barnabas.

Other traditions with New York television included an Abbott and Costello movie every Sunday from 11:30 to 1 which we saw religiously for years, and there was a 4:30 to 6:00 movie each weekday which would often have themes like “Dracula week” (Hammer) and “Godzilla week” etc etc.  Unfortunately we never had a horror host, we did have “Chiller” which showed the usual Shock! Package I am sure, but no host.  When I got to Pittsburgh 20 years ago Chilly Billy was already gone, but thankfully we now have Svengoolie on syndicated Me TV.

I have continued these traditions with my children; they have all seen all of the Abbott and Costello movies, and many of the classic Universals and we catch Svengoolie often.

In the latest Monster Bash I particularly enjoyed the 60s-70s TV theme.  There are so many great TV movies from the 70s that I recall – Legend of Lizzie Borden – Reincarnation of Peter Proud – Dark Secret of Harvest Home – Initiation  of Sarah – perhaps moving forward you could revisit many of these classics at another Monster Bash. 

Thanks again.


Hi Ron.  Just wanted to say a big Amen to your writing about Thanksgiving, your memories/reminiscences.  Such a special time of year for so many us, made all the more special with our friend, Kong,  showing up in our homes on TV, thanks to WOR, Ch9.  It's like Kong is part of the family for Thanksgiving time.  Then, all the Godzilla films the next day.  Though, I wonder if ex-boxer Jack Palance was playing MechaGodzilla or the Smog Monster.

Was great to meet Anne Serling and chat with her about her dad last month (at MONSTER BASH).  She got a kick out of me having grown up on Maple St. in Binghamton, NY (where the Monsters Are Due), in Rod's hometown.   Thanks for bringing her to the Bash.  And, it was nice for me to get a touch of fall up there last month what with it being in the high 80's/low 90's down here this week (in Florida)!

Take care and have a great Thanksgiving. 


PS - I wonder if Kong prefers Pterodactyl over Turkey


LOVE the Thanksgiving memories! You perfectly captured that time and what it means to be a monster kid.

Forrest J Ackerman Birthday Noted

Thanks to Malcolm Gittins and Ursula Adams for reminding me that November 24 was Forrest J Ackerman's birthday. We lost Forry a few years ago, but he made a tremendous impact on fans of classic horror and sci-fi. He was the driving force behind FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine from the 1950s through the 1970s. He unified fans from across the nation before Internet, before DVDs and video tape, before wide-spread horror conventions. Thank you Uncle Forry, you are missed.

Here They Are The FIVE Weirdest Christmas Movies of All-Time

Available Here at Creepy Classics is the Christmas us kids from the 1960s and 1970s caught on "Kiddie Matinees!" Sometime endearing, sometimes out right CREEPY! We have them all in stock now....two new ones this year: THE CHRISTMAS MARTIAN (1971) and THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS TREE (1964). Personally, I highly recommend THE MAGIC CHRISTMAS!

Here are the descriptions:

This is it! The Christmas movie that warped the minds of a generation! Released in the Unite states to the children's matinee market during the holiday season through the 1960s. It features Sata Claus fighting a devil from Hades named "Pitch." Pitch has tried to teach the children of earth evil, but Santa Claus won't have it and is risking everything on Christmas eve to save the holiday from the demons of the dark! A wizard, Santa's sci-fi lab, robot reindeer, a creepy dream sequence of giant dols taunting a little weirdness. You'll find yourself simply shaking your head in disbelief. Imported from Mexico and dubbed in English. A holiday must for every fan of strange cinema. An alterate title could be SANTAS CLAUS VS. THE DEVIL!

Stars John Call, Leonard Hicks, Vincent Beck and Pia Zadora. Martian children cry out for their own Santa Claus, just like the one they see on TV transmissions coming from the planet Earth. Not to disappoint, Martians head for earth to kidnap Santa. Cult weird Sci-Fi classic known for featuring Pia Zadora as a child.

A heartwarming Christmas story that made the rounds in the 1960s for Saturday afternoon matinees across America. Santa and his strange dwarf elves can't meet the rent at the North Pole. An evil, nasty man has bought the north pole, doesn't like Santa and wants to evict him. A friendly lawyer, who as a child told Santa that he would always help him, comes to Santa's rescue.

Truly one of the weirdest "kid's movies" ever. It's framed like THE WIZARD OF OZ with black-and-white real world scenes and color for the "magic world." But outside of that...NO comparison with a good movie! Ha! An atomic age kiddie movie. It's great seeing kids talk about a neighborhood old lady as a "real witch." Kids in my day, used to hang around wondering things like that! A witch and the title tree that can grant wishes to a young boy. Be careful what you wish for! Almost indescribable.

A flying saucer from space lands in the cold Canadian winter. The goofy alien roams a small town, stealing candy. A brother and sister discover the space-being and he befriends these kids. They want a trip around the world on the saucer. The townspeople become suspicious and hop on their snow mobiles to chase the invader. Don;t worry, it;s Christmas and all works total weirdness! Makes SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS seem like a masterpiece. Hang on.

Get these psychotronic holiday movies on DVD right now in our Holiday Department here at Creepy Classics!

By the way, SANTA CLAUS (1959) and SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964) are both also available on Blu-Ray (incredibly!).

Mexican Monster Party

November 2015

Column by author of The Masked Mexican Wrestler and Monster Filmography,

Roberto "Bobb" Cotter

Hola, amigos, and welcome to the latest chapter of the thrilling Mexican Monster Party! This month's featured film is OPERACION '67 ("Operation '67"), the film that out-Bonds Bond and takes the Helm from Matt. The first El Santo film in full color, it takes its title from the year it was made; it wasn't Operation #67, like say, Plan 9. The "Spy Craze" was at its peak around this time, with the James Bond series hitting its apex, including James Coburn's Derek Flint, Dean Martin's Matt Helm, and, on the Small Screen, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which sent visions of guns, gadgets and women in bikinis dancing through everybody's heads.

OPERATION '67 (and its sequel, THE TREASURE OF MONTEZUMA), with a larger budget than was the norm for an El Santo film, included a number of well-mounted and picturesque set-pieces; there's even a nod to North by Northwest - itself a distaff Bond - in which co-star Jorge Rivero is stalked by a plane. Rivero had began his career as a pseudo-Santo, the Gold-Masked Man, in THE INVISIBLE KILLER, and he and El Santo play very well off of each other; and as a pseudo-Bond, he's more effective than, say, George Lazenby. In fact, Rivero and El Santo's first scene in the film is a wonderfully clever send-up of the spy films in general and of this film as well: the world is in trouble, and a phone call comes through to the only men who can save it, secret agents El Santo and Jorge Rubio. The call is received by our heroes while they are entertaining a bevy of bikini-clad lovelies on some faraway beach... or so it seems. As the camera pulls back, we see that it's only the "Beach Room" of El Santo and Rubio's spacious headquarters! They toss off the women like Bond dismisses "Dink" in Goldfinger, and roll into action against evil Elizabeth Campbell (herself the "Golden Rubio" of The Wrestling Women). Campbell receives a great introduction in OPERATION '67; rising out of the surf in the same way as Ursula Andress does in Dr. No, in an equally breathtaking bikini. There's beefcake, too - Rivero exploits every opportunity (and even creates a few) to take his shirt off, but then again, he did this in practically every one of his films, so that doesn't really come as a surprise.

OPERATION '67 is one of the El Santo series' high points, and is overall one of the superior Bond knock-offs. Whereas the spy film would soon become the domain of grittier, more serious and realistic efforts like The Spy Who Came In From The Cold (more accuracy, less fun), with plots so convoluted that the people who made the films weren't quite sure how they turned out, OPERATION '67 is fun, fun, fun, until Elizabeth Campbell's daddy takes the Aston-Martin away. And that's it for this month, amigos.

As always, please remember to stop by the Animal Rescue Site, and click for free to help provide food and care for shelter animals. Adios, and Vaya con Dios, Uncle Roberto, Cousin Lucky, and Cher.

You can get OPERATION 67 on DVD here at Creepy Classics in our Mexican Monsters Department.

Monster Bash Alumni Passes

Gregg Palmer - Great Man

This one slipped by my radar. A tough one too. Actor Gregg Palmer has passed away.

He was at our 2013 MONSTER BASH and delighted fans with stories, impressions and an incredible personality that you couldn't help but love. This one hits hard (just like Charlie Herbert). I just spoke with Gregg in October and he was totally delighted and couldn't wait to get back to BASH. He couldn't make this past show because of work being done on his house, but he was on the slate for July...

We will miss you Gregg. What a great, great man.

Hi Ron,

I just read about losing Gregg Palmer on the Creepy Classics website. i'm so sorry! When I met him at Bash, he was a wonderful, gregarious, big-hearted bear of a man; a total delight to talk and listen to. As always when a Bash alum is taken from us, I try to be grateful for the opportunity we had to tell Gregg in person how much we appreciated his work. Thank you again, Ron, for giving us that opportunity. We'll miss you Gregg!

-Paul Speidel, Manitoba

They still are celebrating those retro days with monster movies at the MONSTER BASH. We're hopeful that my father (Tom Adams) will be back at BASH in July 2016. -Ron
