Ladies of Giallo # 5 (and more)

The weekend is over and I am not pleased about that. However, I am please to announce that Ladies of Giallo #5 is up at The Daily Tourniquet. It is about Maril├╣ Tolo and Carla Brait. Check it out and report back as soon as you can.

Bluebeard Trailer

My only regret is not watching Bluebeard before I wrote this one just so I could see Maril├╣ Tolo kick Richard Burton in the balls. Amazing! Too bad about all the dang animal violence. It was pretty much the most gratuitous bunch of bullshit I've ever seen (except for the wild boar (that thing freaked me out)). Other than the hunting scene, I pretty much loved Bluebeard.

Yesterday, the wife and I watched Topper starring Cary Grant and Constance Bennett. I have vague memories of trying to watch this as a kid and being bored out of my skull. Boy, was I a dumb kid or what? Topper is awesome. I have no idea if any of the sequels are worth checking out.

We did our bookstore hopping this weekend and visited Borders, Barnes & Noble and Mojo Books & Music. I picked up the new Rue Morgue and the seventh volume of MPD Psycho at Borders. Neither of us could find anything at Barnes & Noble so we headed home by way of Mojo where I picked up a used copy of Marvel's Essential Tales of the Zombie (for $8.99) which looks promising.


  1. Topper Returns (1941) is a hoot and a half; the best spooky old house comedy since the Bob Hope Cat & the Canary.
    Trust me. You'll love it.

  2. Cool. I will check out Topper Returns. Thanks for the tip.
